On average, a person needs from 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep a night. However, most individuals are only able to sleep a little over six hours per night due to a variety of reasons.
One out of six people suffers from a sleep disorder, with over 60 different sleep disorders documented. The most common disorders are Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Involuntary Movement Disorders.
