Did you know that humans spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping? Sleep has been proven to be just as important as diet and exercise. If that much of our lives is spent in bed, and that much of our health is dependent on it, the question arises as to how much sleep is too much sleep? And is it even possible to have too much of a good thing?
The amount of sleep necessary is definitely dependent on multiple factors such as your age, your general health, how much activity you are involved in as well as your particular lifestyle habits, and this number will vary over different seasons of life. However even with that said, oversleeping in any case is defined as excessive and unhealthy and is qualified by sleeping anything more than nine hours a night. Depression and a low socioeconomic status are 2 factors that have been associated with oversleeping and could be the underlying reasons for medical problems such as heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and risks of death.
