New research challenges the traditional notion of a good night's sleep, emphasizing the importance of a consistent sleep schedule over the duration of sleep. The study, published in the journal "Sleep," reveals that maintaining a regular bedtime and waking time is more crucial than the actual number of hours slept. The research suggests that individuals who get six hours of sleep with a consistent schedule have a lower risk of early death compared to those who get eight hours with an irregular schedule. Dr. Carol Ash, a sleep expert, explains that a consistent schedule helps regulate the body's internal clock, preventing disruptions that can lead to health issues. The advice includes setting a consistent sleep schedule based on personal preferences, avoiding screens before bedtime, and exposing oneself to light in the morning.

• Shut eye: Short period of sleep.
• Inflammation: The body's response to injury or infection, leading to redness, swelling, and pain.
• Internal clock: The body's natural timekeeping system.
• Misaligned: Not aligned or coordinated.
• Disrupted: Disturbed or interrupted.
• Longevity: Long life or existence.
• Consistent: Regular; unchanging.
