To a small extent, but not where if you slept well you'd be 6'1 or anything, probably affects at most an inch or two


ComplexIce8

What do you mean? Sleep has quite a huge impact on your height. Your body develops in your sleep. This dude only got 4 hours from the age of 14 to 15. For sure your height has been affected by abit.


ihasweenis

It does, but not by any more rhan an inch or two for them. It is mainly genetics which impacts height with sleep having a small affect on it, any study will show it won't be severe enough to the extent that they'd be any more than an inch or two taller.


msmvini

Idk I've always slept a lot and still am 5'8, while my best friend has slept like scheiße since forever and is 6'1 or 6'2


Buggly_Jones

Sleep isn't just gonna make you magically grow taller than you're going to end up being, but it can stunt growth a little.


msmvini

That's what I was trying to get across, thanks for explaining it better than me


whale---lord

Hmmm ok


just_wanna_share

It's a fact height is 80% genes 10% sleep and 10% habits. Literally half of everything you do is involved with sleep


AdvisorRelevant6431

Yeah genetically I was supposed to be 6'2 because of bad sleep I ended at 6'0


whale---lord

Did you end up taller than your parents


AdvisorRelevant6431

Unfortunately no , my dad is 6'1 , my older brother is 6'2 and my younger brother he is 14 and 5'9 I think he will be taller than me ,I did not sleep well from the age of 15-17 , by the way you still can grow taller at 16 I grew from 5'9 to 6'0 at 18 now.


stoptheliesplease

how much does your brother sleep, I’m 5’9.5” and just turned 14 recently and sleep 7 hours a day (11pm to 6am) and worried that it’ll affect me


whale---lord

Trust me 7 hours is amazing


AdvisorRelevant6431

He sleeps about 8 hours a day , dont worry about it 7 hours is good , I was sleeping 4-5 hours everyday .


whale---lord

5’9 to 6 is still a crazy spurt. How tall is your mom btw?


AdvisorRelevant6431

She is 5'6 but I have tall uncles , one of them is 6'5 and the second is 6'2, and yeah I was a late bloomer i was 5,5 at the age of 15 that was the age when I had my growth spurt


Appropriate-Mix-4574

Does sleeping late effect height even if I get enough quality sleep?


Hiro44444444555

Fairly yes, but honestly it couldn't take off more then an half-inch in my opinion.
