In this week’s episode, I review general sleep recommendations and a strategy for going to bed early. -----House Keeping----- ORABA online presentation coming in 2 weeks Measurement and Goal-setting in development -----Show Notes----- CDC Sleep Recommendations Watson et al (2015) Recommended Amount of Sleep for a Healthy Adult: A Joint Consensus Statement of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Research Society Adults should sleep 7 or more hours per night on a regular basis to promote optimal health: Sleeping less than 7 hours per night on a regular basis is associated with adverse health outcomes, including weight gain and obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and stroke, depression, and increased risk of death. Sleeping less than 7 hours per night is also associated with impaired immune function, increased pain, impaired performance, increased errors, and greater risk of accidents. Sleeping more than 9 hours per night on a regular basis may be appropriate for young adults, individuals recovering from sleep debt, and individuals with illnesses. For others, it is uncertain whether sleeping more than 9 hours per night is associated with health risk. People concerned they are sleeping too little or too much should consult their healthcare provider. Reference: Watson NF, Badr MS, Belenky G, et al.
