The biggest thing that’s overlooked in a discussion of health is the diversity of individuals. People can go on and on about how everybody needs eight hours of sleep a night, but do they really? While eight hours for one person might be the magic number, that same figure may make another individual feel incredibly tired. The fact of the matter is that we all have different bodies that function in different ways and have different needs. Only through trial and error (and custom mattresses) can you find what truly works for your individual needs!

Experiment with Different Sleep Schedules 

I have always been an experimenter. If somebody tells me that the pool is cold, I have to go stick my toe in and find out for myself. And do you know what I found? About half of the common wisdom that I’ve been exposed to has not seemed to have any real effect on me and my body. Am I saying that science and research are wrong? Absolutely not. What I am saying is that those types of findings are based on commonalities found between tremendous numbers of individuals.

Let’s get back to our original question: Do you actually need eight hours of sleep a night? Maybe. Maybe not. Perhaps you should try sleeping six hours a night for two weeks and see how you feel. After that, try sleeping for eight hours a night for two weeks and see how you feel. What does my opinion matter when you can see for yourself? Better health is tremendously important, but it’s important to take what you read with a grain of salt and investigate for yourself. After all, no one in the world is a better authority on you than you are.
