Sleep: It’s Not Optional

By Heather Stewart

November 5, 2013

Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and other medications. “Some people drink alcohol with the thought that they’ll get sleepy, but alcohol is metabolized quickly and as it goes away, you get a rebound insomnia,” Farney says. Nicotine and caffeine are both stimulants, and many other medications can interfere with sleep, particularly pain medicines. Even over-the-counter medications can disrupt sleep, Farney says, so it is important to be aware of side effects.

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

Farney says the amount of sleep you need is highly individual, but typically around seven to eight hours a night. Some need more, and some need less. But very few can function well with only four or five hours a night.
