I usually get six hours of sleep each night except on weekends, when I get seven to eight hours. I wake up at 5:30 every morning to go to work, but I can't force myself to go to bed at 9:30! I usually go to bed between 11:00 and 11:30. Too late, I know, but my natural rhythm is to stay up until midnight and wake up at 9:00.

I sleep from 1 am to about 9 am. Seems perfect for me. I'm a night owl.

I'm in bed by 10:30pm, and up by 5:30am usually...but I've had that schedule for so long that I can't sleep in on the weekends even when I want to. I'd love to sleep a whole day and night...maybe I'd feel "caught up" then. lol.

I sleep from 5 to 6 hours. Wake up as if some one threw water on me. I think it is the right amount for my system, as I seldom get tired during the day.

According to a sleep study research the average person needs 8 hours and 15 minutes of sleep per night for overall well being and good health.
Also the study noted it should take you approximately 15 minutes to fall asleep when you lie down in bed at night.
If you fall asleep sooner than that, it means you're sleep deprived.

There was no mention of using Tylenol PM in these posts.

I'm assuming these sleepers in these posts are going to sleep, and sleeping naturally?

I sleep 8 hours a night, but I couldn't do it without sleep medication.

I normally get 8-10 per night, but I do wake up every 3-4 hours during the night. Fortunately I usually don't have any problems falling back asleep!

ANY COMMENTS ? HOW MUCH SLEEP is enough for you to function optimally ??
Keep that same schedule and you will feel great and age slower.

Hmmm. I sleep anywhere from 3 to 8 hours a night. Usually somewhere in the middle. However I have moderate sleep apnea so it's always a restless sleep and I can only recall 5 or 6 times in my life (and I'm almost 22) where I've woken up and felt really good and RESTED. :/ I'm a thin, healthy, nonsmoker, -so it's not like I'm doing anything wrong!- but have had sleep problems since I was born. My mother said I didn't sleep a full night until I was 5 1/2 years old. I really need to get back to a sleep specialist as I have insurance now, but have yet to go. I think most articles I've read have said 6 or less hours of sleep makes your risk of heart disease and such skyrocket. Greeeeeat.
