    Topic: Sleep


    What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)


    How much sleep do we need to feel good the next morning?


    Rule of thumb:


    Newborns (0-3months)  14-17 hours


    Infants (4-11 months)   12 - 15 hours


    Toddlers (1-2 years)     11 - 14 hours


    Preschoolers (3-5 years)  10 - 13 hours


    School-age children (6-13 years)   9 - 11 hours


    Teenagers (14-17 years)      8 - 10 hours


    Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years)   7 - 9 hours


    Older Adults (65 and over)    7 - 8 hours.


    Why is sleep so important in our lives?


    ~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores, 


    Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....


    Why does good sleep improve our health?


    Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...


    Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?


    For children it's the parents......


    For adults..... they decide.....


    Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:


    "Today is the best day of my life again!!!"


    Conclusion:


    Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.
