We all know that sleep is as important to our well being as food, water, and breathing. But are you getting the proper amount of sleep every night?

The National Sleep Foundation has released new recommendations for how much sleep you should be getting every night, dependent on age. Generally speaking, the older you are the less sleep you need... but 8 hours is recommended for anyone over the age of 13.

These new recommendations haven't changed much since the last time they released them. Most of the changes came to younger demographics where they recommend getting more sleep than previously released.

Between work, kids, and just trying to get things done in any given day, I know I don't get nearly close to the recommended amount of sleep in any given night. Do you?
