Are You Getting Enough Sleep?


Eight hours. No, seven. Maybe six? 

There seems to be a new magical figure for the "perfect amount of sleep hours" published every week, written in fearful tones that you're probably going to drop down dead at the age of 50 if you're going to bed after 23:30. Mercifully, the latest Healthcare Triage video isn't here to add another tired-out fable. 

Cutting through the tirade of "recommended" sleeping patterns, Aaron Carroll reviews a wide breadth of opinions, studies and data on the subject, before coming to a refreshing conclusion: if you feel tired, get more sleep. If you're feeling okay, great. 

Grab a pillow and settle in for some sleep education.
