A friendly warning

Of course you should not exagerate and sleep too short. An average healthy adult needs between 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Make sure that you get the sleep your body and brain need, but realize that it is also important that you don't sleep too much.

Good to know

Apart from the gain of conscious time, which you can calculate on this page, sleeping shorter may even extend your life expectancy. Some research has indicated that people who sleep too long will live shorter. Time to start adjusting your alarm clock?
