The secret to happiness is getting EXACTLY seven hours and six minutes of sleep a night

 

Daily Mail Online

  • People who rated themselves as ‘perfectly happy’ get 7 hours and 6 minutes
  • Those who said they were ‘mostly happy’ snooze for 6 minutes less, study shows
  • Sleeping for a further six minutes less made people ‘somewhat happy’
  • Having less than 6 hours 48 minutes made people miserable in relationships

  • But recent studies say routine, not just amount of time we sleep, is important
  • Lack of sleep is linked to raised risk of obesity, heart attack, stroke and diabetes

Participants who rated themselves ‘mostly happy’ people sleep a little bit less than the ‘perfectly happy’ people, getting seven hours.

And those who said they were ‘somewhat happy’ snoozed for six hours 54 minutes, the study of 2,000 people shows.

‘Less than 6 hours 48 minutes hours of sleep meant complete unhappiness in relationships, constant worry, and never a shred of gratitude,’ the report states.
