Dr. Sarkar said, “It should not happen that a person sleeps at 9 pm, the next day at 3 am and the next day at 5 am. There should be a fixed bedtime. If a person sleeps at midnight every day, he should try to sleep at the same time every day. When a person sleeps at the same time and even if he gets only seven hours of sleep instead of eight hours every day, it is enough for him.
