How Much Sleep is Too Much?You’ve heard how important getting enough sleep on a comfortable custom mattress is for your health and well-being. However, you may not have heard about sleeping too much. Although it’s less common than getting too little sleep, getting too much can also contribute to health problems and general feelings of tiredness. So how much sleep is too much?

Avoid Too Much Sleep

The optimal amount of sleep for most adults is seven to nine hours per night. Occasionally sleeping in on the weekends or sleeping longer after a tiring week is normal, but regularly sleeping more than nine hours a night is probably too much. Longer sleeping habits have been linked with:

  • Depression
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Increased pain and inflammation
  • Impaired fertility
  • Higher risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke
  • Higher rates of mortality
