While you are asleep, your body goes through different stages at approximately 90 minutes cycles. These includes light sleep, deep sleep, dreaming (also known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
Newborn babies can sleep for 16 hours a day, while children of school age need average of 10 hours. Adult usually need, on average, 7 to 9 hours sleep a night, as we get older, it’s normal to need less sleep.
Most people over 70 need less than 6 hours sleep per night; and tend to be light sleepers. Insomnia is the disturbance of a normal sleep pattern, the inability to get to sleep and stay asleep. Insomnia can last for days, months or even years.
