This answer was rated:

Dr. Saha, What is the ideal number of hours of sleep per day for a person to receive? 5 hours per day, 6 hours per day, 7 hours per day, or 8 hours per day? Thank you.

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

How much sleep is enough varies with person to person.

It can be 5 hours for one or it can be 9 hours for other.

If you feel fresh after your sleep then it is likely to be enough.

There can be variation in the sleep cycle & circadian rhythm & time of sleeping among different people.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
