That may be simplistic I know, but it's like people who were wooly hats in the summer....what is the point?
Or should I ask, what are the benefits?
It really depends on the person, everybody is different. Some people need 7 - 8 hours of sleep.. or at least think they do. I thought I did too until I found out that you can actually TOO much sleep. So I started cutting down. I sleep 5-6 hours a night and I feel SOO much better in the morning.
Its funny because most of my life I can remember waking up naturally almost always right around 5am, and feeling pretty rested and awake. But as soon as I saw the alarm clock I would just go back to sleep with the thought of -if i get a few more hours of sleep i would feel even better. But when id wake up id feel tired and groggy.
So it really depends on the person
