According to a new research at the University College London Medical School, it was revealed that people who sleep more or less than six to eight hours per night may have adverse effects on their performance. Their age can be up by 4 to 7 years.
Sleep has been found to be linked with the wide range of quality of life measures, such as mental and physical health of a person and social functioning.
Jane Ferrie, who was the lead author of the study, asserted, “The main result to come out of our study was that adverse changes in sleep duration appear to be associated with poorer cognitive function in later-middle age”.
The wrong amount of sleep, which is sleeping too little or for too long, it can disrupt the mental state of a person. The recommended sleeping times are six to eight hours per night.
People who sleep more or less than six to eight hours, they have to experience physical and mental decline and may be early death. People who sleep more have to face short term verbal memory.
However, Researchers also said that 7 hours sleep is the beauty sleep and 7 hours sleep has the highest rate for every cognitive measure.
