Janellas Energy Boosting Week. SLEEP.

Let’s start with the most obvious reason we’re tired. There’s no perfect number of hours that we all need, but The National Sleep Foundation’s major report— published 2015 in their own Sleep Health Journal—has revealed an updated list of sleep duration recommendations for all age groups. Here’s what they said:

Newborns (0-3 months): 14-17 hours each day.
Infants (4-11 months): 12-15 hours each day.
Toddlers (1-2 years): 11-14 hours each day.
Preschoolers (3-5): 10-13 hours each day.
School age children (6-13): 9-11 hours each day.
Teenagers (14-17): 8-10 hours each day.
Younger adults (18-25): 7-9 hours each day.
Adults (26-64): 7-9 hours each day.
Older adults (65+): 7-8 hours each day.

And what about a daytime nap? Hell yeah! More on this to come.
