Best Time To Go To Sleep At Night According To Your Age For Good Health

The best time for you to go to sleep depends on things like your age, what you eat, and how healthy you are in general. Here is a general plan that will help you figure out when the best time is for you to go to bed:

Adults should follow the advice on Healthline. Most experts say that adults should try to sleep between seven and nine hours each night. The National Sleep Foundation says that people between the ages of 26 and 64 should sleep for 7 to 9 hours each night.

If you are an adult over the age of 65, you may need a little more sleep, so you should try to sleep between 7 and 8 hours each night.

For younger kids and younger teenagers:

The amount of sleep that babies, kids, and teens need could be very different depending on their age. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has said that people of different ages should get the following amounts of sleep:

Children 6–12 years old: 9–12 hours

Teenagers ages 13–18: 8–10 hours

It is important to pay attention to your body's natural sleep-wake cycle and try to go to bed at a time that allows you to get the right amount of sleep. This advice is for everyone, no matter how old they are.

You can also make it easier to fall asleep by staying away from coffee, alcohol, and big meals in the hours before bedtime.

Getting into a regular routine for winding down before bed could also help improve the quality of sleep. Some people find it helpful to do things like read, meditate, or take a warm bath before going to bed.
