The recommendation is 7 hours of sleep per night. Is that continuous, unbroken sleep or can it be interrupted? What is the correct amount for women and sleep?
Ideally this is un-interrupted sleep since we need to reach deep, restorative sleep. The actual recommended amount varies by age but most experts suggest adults get 7-9 hours of sleep at night. The best gauge is how you feel and function on a daily basis. If you have difficulty falling asleep or waking up or if you have unusual fatigue during the day then you may not be getting enough sleep at night.
