Everyone needs a quality sleep of 7-9 hours in a day. These hours are required for the body to repair and recover. Sleep experts claim that sleeping for less than 6 hours in a day can cause a severe effect on one’s body. On the other hand, sleeping for more than six hours has a handful of benefits to one’s body and health. The sleep specialists argue that if one sleeps for more than six hours in many days, they tend to look healthier.

Health care professionals advise people to have a quality sleep. It is good for everyone to get to bed early so that they enjoy a quality sleep of over six hours. Many people are, however, unable to do this due to many reasons.

How can you tell that someone is having inadequate sleep? One good sign is when the corners of the mouth are dropping. You may have seen this sign with people that are unhappy. Another sign is the eyelids that appear to be sagging. The eyes can be swollen. There may be dark circles around the eyes. This is because the blood did not circulate well and some blood was collected under the eye lids. This is what turns black. Other people go to the extent of losing their hairs. This is because inadequate sleep causes poor circulation of blood in your body. The hair follicles may be disadvantaged by getting little or no nutrients. Another sign of someone who had inadequate sleep is the eyes looking puffy.

It is advisable that one uses a suitable pillow when sleeping. Be sure to have enough rest. Also, take plenty of water. One should take at least eight glasses of water in a day.
