How much is enough

It' s probably a silly question, but what is the right amount of sleep daily for a 40 year old adult? I get about six hours a night, but I still feel tired.

The right amount is the amount which makes you feel alert the following day! It is said that Margaret Thatcher only needed 4 hours a night - some people need 9. However, if you are tired the next day, then you are either not getting anough sleep, or the quality of your sleep is not adequate. The average amount would be about 7 to 8 hours.
