It is widely held by the scientific community that people should have at least eight hours of sleep a day (Durmer & Dinges, 2005). In a recent study published by the Sleep Research Institute (year), it has been proved that during that time, the brain processes all new information to which it was exposed during the day, performs synapses, and recovers one’s body from the tiredness of the daily activities. Moreover, according to Lorena (p.c.), sleeping at least eight hours at night prepares one’s body and mind for the following work day. However, few people admit sleeping eight or more hours a day (People, 2006). In a recent research held by the Bureau of Sleep Disorders (Donald, 2012), 75.6 percent of the working population sleeps a maximum of only 4-6 hours, if not less. In light of such clear evidence, it is possible to say that people’s work and study routine of nowadays significantly affects their sleeping time , having an important impact on their productivity and, thus, requiring more effort to meet their obligations (Claus, 2008). This work cycle results in more unrecovered tiredness, which leads to a need of even more than eight hours of sleep a day (Daddy, 2010). While the issues raised by SRI have been proved very important for health, today’s work demand conflicts with our body needs (Worker, 2014). Therefore, this paper will suggest that although necessary for one’s health, eight hours of sleep a day does not fit the work routine of our time.
