While the amount of sleep we need as adults don’t change much (7-9 hours, if you're wondering), our ability to sleep well does. Thank increased sleep-destroying stress levels (many of us are at our career peaks in our 40s and 50s), sizable family commitments (children and aging parents), too much screen-time and inactivity, and changing hormones levels.
