Talking about meeting the needs of sleep, it turns out that quality sleep alone is not enough evaluation to give us more insight into our overall sleep health. Besides quality, there is also quantity. In this case, quantity means the number of hours we sleep.
Adapted from the Sleep website, for adults, the correct duration of sleep is 7 to 9 hours. While for young adults (aged 18-25 years) some may feel enough with just 6 hours. But there are also those who need 10 to 11 hours to achieve sleep satisfaction.
This is because the conditions of each person are different. Therefore, it is important to understand our own sleeping habits in order to meet the right sleep needs.
The difference between sleep quality
Sleep quality refers to how well we sleep. For example, for adults, good sleep means it only takes 30 minutes (or less) to be able to fall asleep. Then sleep nice and soundly throughout the night without waking up more than once in the middle of the night. Even when we do wake up one time, it doesn’t take more than 20 minutes to get back to sleep.
Conversely, bad sleep is when you lack the ability to fall asleep immediately. Besides that, also having to experience anxiety before going to sleep, or even wake up early.
