WEB Notes: This article really did not tackle the “modern life,” aspect. However, we do know the go go go mentality of today’s world brings about stress for many. If you live in that world either get out of it or learn to manage it better. Work is a good thing, but constantly thinking about work is a very bad thing. Your mind needs its own time to think outside of that realm. Remember, we have a Creator who also needs your attention.
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who says they get enough sleep.
But what is “enough?” Is it eight hours? Seven hours? Enough that you don’t need a straight IV of espresso just to get out of bed in the morning?
We’re often told that eight hours is the optimum healthy amount of sleep. But new research suggests this is a misconception.
Penn State researchers have suggested that 8.5 hours of sleep is the new eight hours, Quartz reports.
