Not just anyBODY: a health and fitness column - How good is your sleep performance? - Dr. N. Ramakrishnan

Performing artists are always focused on ensuring their best performance every time, all the time. This often entails long hours of practice and compromised sleep patterns. A good night’s sleep is essential for a good day and a brief reality check on your sleep wellness would go a long way.
•    Do you feel your sleep is adequate?
•    Do you wake up feeling fresh?
•    Do you feel fatigued or sleepy during the day?
•    Is your sleep pattern fragmented? (i.e do you wake up several times at night?)
•    Are you told that you snore?

If you answered yes to any of the above it would be best to discuss your issues with a specialist.

How much sleep is good enough?
Medical research confirms that average sleep time in early 1900s was approximately 8-9 hours, in mid 20th century around 7-7.5 hours and reduced to only 6-6.5 hours in the 21st century!
