While everyone strives to get enough sleep as possible, the actual number of hours of sleep that people need per night actually changes with age. There are a number of sleep calculators that can help patients understand their sleep needs.

You can use a classic, the Sleep Foundation’s online Sleep Calculator, which has been designed to take into account not only a person’s age but, also, their desired wake-up time and bedtime. And it’s pretty simple to use, too.

Savy’s calculator, the SleepingOcean calculator, helps you figure out not just the number of hours you need as well as the precise time of day and night you should sleep and wake for optimal sleep.

Fiorenzi’s calculator, StartSleeping sleep calculator, allows you to enter your age for precision and greater insight. The calculator will estimate the best time for you to wake up and go to bed, with tips based on your age as well as your goal wake time and bedtime.
