Absolutely. Too much sleep, just as too little sleep, can negatively impact a person’s quality of life. One recent Finnish study found that sleeping fewer than seven hours dramatically increases a person’s overall risk of mortality, and sleep time beyond eight hours also increases this risk. Those achieving an average of seven to eight hours of sleep per night actually showed the lowest mortality rates.
