Healthy Holidays – Tip #3

Make sure that your sleep doesn’t suffer at this time of the year. Watch out for hidden caffeine, avoid excess alcohol at social events, both drastically affect your much needed rest.

Psychology Today says:

The Right Amount of Shut-Eye

The National Sleep Foundation has come up with recommendations for the amount of sleep needed for different age brackets. Of course, the hours vary when key points are taken into account, such as some people can’t function on less shut-eye and others can, being overweight, the use of caffeine, among other factors. The Foundation gives these daily sleep guidelines, even during the holiday season:

  • Infants (4-11 months): 12-15 hours
  • School age children (6-13): 9-11 hours
  • Teenagers (14-17): 8-10 hours
  • Young adults (18-25): 7-9 hours
  • Adults (26-64): 7-9 hours
  • Older adults (65+): 7-8 hours
