6 hours on a good day.

Isn't 8 hours suggested?

Four is par, in between wild swings of zero and ten.

I find that I feel like crap if I have less than six or more than eight hours a night, so seven is what I aim for. GreyFlannelMan puts it very well; since I quit smoking and upped my exercise to compensate, sleep is very very satisfying.

Sleep has always been satisfying for me. But, over the last year I would say I've got 7 hours on a good night during the week. Lately, Ive been doing 6 and feel exhausted at school, but right after 3 I feel fine and couldn't go to sleep if I wanted to. Most of the time. On the weekends, I get probably 13 every night I spend at home. When I'm out until 4 in the morning, I get about 8. Sundays I get 2 or 3 sometimes, because my dad drags me to church.

Oh, I don't know. I think all of us are going to pay off our sleep debt (and then some) eventually.

Personally, I need at least 7 hours a night or I have trouble functioning. I can get by on 6 for a couple of nights, but after that it catches up with me pretty quickly.

5.5 to 6 on the weekdays, maybe 7 on the weekends.

I consider anyone who needs 8 hours / day to be slovenly. Not fair, but I can't help it.

I think I need 7 hours or so, but function best if I get at least 8 hours.

Sleeping enough is good for your health. It's no more indulgent than eating healthfully or exercising.

I've been trying to sleep as little as possible and according to my imaginary friend Bob; mentally, I'm better than I used to be.

I probably average 5-6 hrs a night. I feel much better when I get 7-8 hours a night though. I find as I get a little older that I don't function as well on little sleep like I used to. It used to not make much difference to me if I got 3or 4 hours of sleep a night. Now, I can still wake up and function but I am not nearly as productive.

I get 6 or 7 per night and I'm rarely ever tired during the day. However, I take a multivitamin every day and exercise regularly - I'm betting it has more to do with the exercise than anything else. I noticed that during times when Im not exercising, I feel lethargic and low on energy.

Sleeping is one of those things I have never been good at. I guess I average around 7, but I always wake up 4 or 5 times a night, so I get poor quality sleep. I used to compensate for this by having one really early night a week - I would go to sleep at like 7.30 or 8 pm, and not get up til normal time, it helped...i should get back to doing that.

I need 6 hours, but I like to have more. Lately I've increased my cardio, and I seem more tired in the evenings...Maybe I need the vitamins too.

In more ways than one! I almost never remember my dreams, so as far as I'm concerned, if I'm asleep I might as well be dead. I've never understood people who say they "love sleep". You're not conscious, how can you love it? I think what they mean is that they like waking up after sleeping for a long time. But for me, that's just not worth it. Once in a while, I'll get nine hours on a Saturday night after being out late. That's enough for me.
