How many hours of sleep do you get?
 
And is it enough? Apparently 7 hours consistently is not enough for me. I don't nap during the day. Even if I could nap, there isn't any time. (excluding weekends)

8 and no. So I hit snooze for about an hour.

I don't get the same amount of sleep each day, some days I get about 3 to 4 hours and a few times a week I might get 8.

When I was your age, I needed a minimum of 9 most nights. If I had less than 9, I could do it or two nights and then I needed to catch up. I remember this well because I went to the doctor a few times complaining about being tired (and therefore cranky) all the time. Some people just need more sleep. Try going to bed earlier, if possible, and getting all your stuff ready for work the night before so you can sleep later in the morning.

Now that I'm older, I am okay with 7 but I try to get 8 if I can. I'm a night owl so that's tough.

I usually get 7-8 during the week and 8-10 on the weekends. I do feel best getting around 8 hours per night. I'm a night owl but I don't have to get up til 8 during the week and can usually sleep as late as I want on the weekends.

I aim for 7 but I usually get 5-6 hours. My cat disturbs my sleep most of the time as she usually gets up around 5 and demands her breakfast. I don't need to get up till 6:45. Sometimes after feeding her I'm able to get back to sleep, but others times, it doesn't happen. And no, the amount I get is not enough.

I get maybe 5 hours. I'm up and down 2-3xs going to the bathroom. I really need to cut down on my water consumption. Example: I went to bed last night at 10:30. I was up 3xs until 1:30. My alarm went off at 5:00. I hit snooze until 5:30. Yes, I'm tired. I do need more sleep. Must.find.solution.

spiderlashes5000 08-01-2013 12:11 PM

It really, really varies for me - btwn 4 and 9 hrs per night.

There was a time when I was fine w about 6 but that's no longer the case. I think I should probably start to take a mutivitamin ever day and extra B vitamins.

I can't imagine healthy, young adults needing or wanting to take naps on a regular basis! LOL

Curly Sara 08-01-2013 12:12 PM

I get between 6 to 8 hours. Less than that makes me ill...

That sounds like a medical problem. You might want to talk to your doctor about that.

Lotsawaves 08-01-2013 12:24 PM

If I had medical insurance....

Po 08-01-2013 12:34 PM

Between 5-9.

I don't feel a difference either way because I don't sleep well. I probably only sleep 3-4 hours a night.

PerriP 08-01-2013 12:46 PM

Around 7 during the work week, 8-9 on the weekend. I need about 8 consistently. I also get up several times a night to use the bathroom (my Dr seems unconcerned, all my blood panels and glucose levels are fine).

ETA I nap most Saturday and Sunday afternoons

I've always loved naps even when I was younger! And not cat naps either. A full on 1 to 2 hour nap on a rainy afternoon. Heaven.
And at my age it's not at all unusual to get up a couple times a night to pee. I go right back to sleep tho.

inheritedcurls 08-01-2013 01:50 PM

6 1/2 to 7 hours during thr week... Usually 8 on the weekend. I don't usually ever take naps unless exhausted

Yes, some people don't believe in catchup sleep but it works for me. I've been getting 7 hours every night for a while. If i had a few good nights in between i think 7 would be okay. I wish I didn't need so much, theres so little time left over to myself.

I also don't have to get up until 8. But it's hard for me to get to bed before 1, before midnight is a miracle and requires a lot of planning.

No but when I was younger, I couldn't take naps either. I don't consider myself that young now. My bf is able to take naps, even at work (powernaps). I wish I could because it is better to get up earlier to get certain things accomplished and then take naps to go on with the rest of the day. If i don't get a good nights sleep, my whole day is basically ruined and no fun for me. Problem with naps is that I have a hard time falling asleep, especially with daylight out.

My version of a 'nap' is if i'm extremely exhausted from staying up the night before. And then I sleep for a few hours and get up then just sleep through the night.

I'm all over the map. I go to bed between 11-1 and get up between 6-8. Always seems the nights I go to sleep earlier, are followed by the mornings I can sleep in. Tuesday night we went to the drive in, so I got to sleep about 3:30 and had to be up at 6:30. Worked an 11 hour day, but was in bed last night by 10:30, and slept till 8:30.

6-7 is ideal, less or more and I tend to feel a little out of it.

Another who LOVES naps!!!! TVTroplois used to play Golden Girls in the afternoon and I'd time my nap for when they were on if I was off :lol:

Speckla 08-01-2013 07:15 PM

8-9 hours!

gagirl09 08-02-2013 09:06 AM

I only need 5 to recharge but my circadian rhythm usually will do 6 or 7. If I go to bed at midnight I'm usually up by 6 or 7 in the morning. Working a 3rd shift job this summer is how I discovered I only require 5 to feel refreshed and function.
