To have a decent night’s sleep, you need a comfortable sleeping environment. To reap the greatest health benefits, aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night. For most people sleeping more than 9 hours a night on a regular basis may prove to be more harmful than beneficial. The temperature of the bedroom might make it difficult to sleep if it’s too hot or too cold. And, over time, not getting enough sleep might affect more than just your mood in the morning. Sleep deprivation might make you irritable the next day.

It’s difficult to focus and absorb new knowledge when you don’t get enough sleep. While you sleep, your brain also works on processing your emotions. When you’re sleep-deprived, it’s likely that you’ll have problems remembering and retaining information.
