We sleep in different ways and at different times. The habit of sleeping in
bed is not expensive, it is comfortable. But in parts of Asia and Africa the nights
are so wann that people sleep comfortably without any cover at all. Whether we
spend our nights in a bed or not, sleeping takes up about a third of our lives. The
amount of sleep that we need however, varies greatly with age. New born babies,
for example, sleep for about twenty hours each day. By the age of twelve years,
about ten hours of sleep each rught is enough. Adults usually need only seven to
eight hours. Old people sometimes say that they hardly sleep at all; but you have,
no doubt, noticed they are good at taking little naps as they sit in the sunshine.
