2. Adult Sleep Needs

Once you reach age 18, your sleep needs generally decrease. Like the childhood recommendations, though, it's generally a bit of a range. Most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night to feel rested and happy. Seniors age 65 and older often need slightly less sleep than that, with a standard range being seven to eight hours.
