The amount of sleep women need could vary from individual to individual but in general healthy adults need about 7-8 hours sleep which is important for restoring of body’s energy supplies that have been depleted through the whole day’s activities. At the same time during sleep our body does most of its repair works – muscle tissue is rebuilt and restored; growth hormone is secreted and body tissues are rebuilt; mental energy is restored.
Achieving a good night’s sleep can reap many health and mental benefits. If you don’t have enough restful not-interrupted sleep, you could have irritability, reduced memory and tolerance, difficulties in concentration, tiredness and/or mood swings, headaches, etc.

According to recent studies, people who sleep regularly in noisy places (for at least 1-2years) could have increased risk of heart problem compared to those who always sleep in quiet bedrooms.
