Think you need more sleep? Think again...

by Victoria Chuidian

You don’t need sleep, you need more energy.

Long workdays can lead you to thinking you need to sleep for as long as possible over the weekend. Sometimes you may celebrate the fact that you slept over 8 hours. But a new study from the University of Cambridge seems to suggest you may need to substitute more time for sleeping with other things, like exercise or activity.

The Cambridge study surveyed over 9,000 middle-aged and older adults, and discovered that people who slept for more than eight hours a night had a 46% higher chance of experiencing a stroke, compared to people who slept between six and eight hours a night.

Balance is essential, and finding your sweet sleep spot is part of healthy balance. A lot of times fatigue or sleepiness can be caused by dehydration. Getting the right amount of hydration may help your body regulate sleep time so that its just enough- no more, no less.

One of the reasons dehydration is linked to symptoms like lethargy, dizziness, weakness, and confusion, if that your body is working harder to push oxygen through the bloodstream. Insufficient fluid or hydration can minimize blood volume, making the heart work harder to transport necessary nutrients and oxygen to the brain, skin, and muscles.
