How to get the sleep you really need @TED #tedtalks #shorts

In the Ted Talks video titled “How to get the sleep you really need,” the speaker challenges the notion that everyone needs a standard 8 hours of sleep per night. While 7 to 8 hours is the recommended amount for adults, it’s important to remember that this is a range and individual needs can vary.

Instead of fixating on a specific amount of sleep, the speaker encourages viewers to ask themselves a few key questions: Do I feel reasonably well rested during the day? Do I generally sleep through the night without disturbances? Can I stay awake through the day without involuntarily falling asleep?

If you can answer yes to all these questions, then you’re likely getting the right amount of sleep for your body. However, if you’re experiencing sleep disturbances or struggling to stay awake during the day, it may be time to talk to your doctor or explore cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI).

By focusing on how you feel and function during the day, rather than a specific number of hours of sleep, you can ensure that you’re getting the quality rest that your body truly needs. Good luck and good night!
