Seven hours of sleep appears to be ideal night’s rest, study suggests

CNN reports research indicates that “around seven hours of sleep is the ideal night’s rest.”

The researchers also found, “Insufficient and excessive sleep [was] associated with a reduced ability to pay attention, remember, and learn new things,” as well as a reduced ability to, “solve problems and make decisions.”

The investigators analyzed “data from almost 500,000 adults ages 38 to 73 who were part of the U.K. Biobank – a long-term, government-backed health study.”

The findings (pdf) were published online in the journal Nature Aging.
