Sleep Health and Indoor Environment

Sleep Health and Indoor Environment

Recent consensus reports that the ideal amount of sleep required each night for children and adults are 8-12 hours and 7-9 hours, respectively. Up to 50% of children experience a sleep problem and approximately 30% of adults complain of sleep disruption. Environmental sleep disrupters such as temperature, humidity, light, ambient noise, and air quality are recognized as contributors to sleep disorders.
