Question of the Day - June 26th - Friday

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
How many hours of sleep do you get a night? Do you feel it's ever enough?

I normally get a solid 7 hours and normally that's enough. Less than 7 and I tend to drag all day and any more than 7 is just too much.

I generally get around 7-8 which is optimal for me. If I get less then that I feel tired the next day and my attention span is much shorter. However I seem to get the same reaction if I sleep to much as well.

Generally between 5-6 hours a night on weekdays. I definitely dont think its enough! We wake up for work between 4-4:30am, then get home sometime between 8:30-9:30pm during the week.

well, 10 hours would be ideal I'm not kidding either, I can and sometimes need to sleep a lot I usually get between 7 and 8 hours a night and wake up exhausted maybe the kitties are dancing jigs on me

I normally get between six and seven hours on a week night, with another hour of light dozing before I get up; another hour or so on weekends. Sometimes it feels like enough, but mostly not. I need a vacation.

6-7 hours during the week, 7-8 hours on weekends. I'd like to sleep more during the week, but it just doesn't work out that way.

2-5 hours and it's never enough

I get around 7-9, depending on when the cats wake me up in the morning lol. Generally I feel like it's enough, but there are those funky days a couple days a week where it isn't enough and I'm tired all day. Then again, I've got some medical conditions that don't help with that tiredness . But I will say, if I don't get at LEAST 7 hours of sleep at night, I'm useless all day long. I need my 7-9 hours if I'm to socialize with other people.

When in an insomnia phase: 2hrs or so
When not in an insomnia phase: 7hrs or so (longer than 8 makes me drag...less than 6 makes me groggy)

I sleep around 8 hours, but I usually feel more pep, if I sleep a little less than that.

Same exact sleep pattern here.

8 is great! Any more and I am groggy, any less and my body and brain do weird funky things.
post #16 of 24
I think I average between 5-7 hours a night...less if I have my stretch of insomnia
post #17 of 24
Gnerally 6-8 hours a night, which is enough for me.
post #18 of 24
I have some pretty serious insomnia. I'd say generally about 2-4 hours. And no, it's not enough.
post #19 of 24
Usually around 8. It`s ok at the moment because I`m off work so I`m allowed a little lie in

The trouble starts when I go back to work and end up looking at stuff on the internet until 2am

Actual sleep or quality of sleep? I get about 7 hours a night, but half of that is tossing , turning, sort of half sleep. My mom was the same way, I never feel rested and wake up tired. Has always been this way.

Same for me too. Usually on weekends, I sleep about 10 hours, sometimes more. It feels real good too. During the work week, I get between 7 and 8. I always wake up tired and have a hard time getting out of bed.

5-6 hours if I'm working, 7-8 if I'm not. I'm not a morning person so I wake up tired regardless of how much sleep I got. I can function fine as is and can make do with less if I have to. Caffeine required, of course.

About 5 to 6 hours total bed time. Actual sleep is probably a lot less, because of my back pain. If I take an Ambien, I will sleep through the night without waking from the back pain. Unfortunately, the Ambien seems to mess with my short term memory, so I try not to take it too often. I've also been known to go online and do "Ambien shopping".... and not realize it until the packages start arriving! If I take the Ambien, I feel well rested, even when I only sleep 5 hours. Without it, I'm exhausted.

I'd say say 7 hours for me. I went to bed at 2.30AM last night and got up just before 10, but I can only do that because it's holidays.
