Different people need different amounts of sleep. Eight and a quarter hours is the average for adults, while some people can cope very well with much less and some need much more every night. Scientists don’t yet understand exactly why we need sleep so badly. They believe it restores us physically and helps us organise things in our brain. We do know, however, that we can’t live well without it.
