With phrases like “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” emerging and a constant focus on productivity above all else - the amount of time that people are spending in bed is at an all time low.

With many people getting under 6 hours of sleep – an amount shown to be severely detrimental to healthy brain function – the question is… how many hours is enough?
