Abstract

Sleeping habits of 48 Calabrian centenarians (12 males, 36 females) were evaluated. Their average age was 102 +/- 1.87 years (range 100-107years). Quantitative and qualitative aspects of sleep were recorded, such as the length of sleeping (hrs), the time of falling asleep (regular or variable) and the time of awakening (regular or variable). Moreover, we recorded and included in the global hours an eventual afternoon sleeping, during a 24-hour-period. The quality of sleeping was classified as: night sleeping, and morning sleeping; and for the subjects were grouped as short sleepers (subjects that fall asleep easily), andlong sleepers (subjects with problems to fall asleep). We also considered if sleeping was uninterrupted or interrupted during the night andif the subjects followed particular habits to facilitate the sleeping(sleeping pills, alcohol, etc.). This study demonstrated that all theexamined centenarians go to sleep early in the evening, have no problems in falling asleep, wake up early in the morning, take a nap in theafternoon and do not take pills before going to bed. Among the environmental factors, the quality, the quantity and the habits of sleeping might have great influence for longevity.
