    How many hours do you sleep per night?

    On average, how many hours of sleep do you get per night? (public poll)

    I feel bad if I don't get 7-8 and if I was left uninterrupted, I could sleep 10 per night. I wish I was one of the people who could function with only 5-6 but I'm just not.

    Also, how much does age play into it?

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    I probably fall into the 7-8 range more 7ish probably. I think I would function better on 5-6 hours then 10 hours though. Unless it was 4 or 5 days in a row of 5 hours of sleep then it would drag me down.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    About 6 at the most... I think ever since HS started I've been around that time frame, and it was less when I was at ISU and bartending, and now I just can't go to sleep before 12 and get up by 6 (I'm 27 yrs old)... sleeping is wonderful, and feels good, but it's wasting my time ;)

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    Depends. On days when I have to get up for school or work, probably 5-6. When I have the morning off I usually sleep 9-10 hours.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    My body tends to need 9-10 hours but I find myself in the 7-8 hour range (which happens to be absent from the poll). There's no way I can constantly get less than 7 hours of sleep and still function properly.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    I would say I sleep 6 to 7. I've done 4 for an extended period of time and that was exhausting. Anything more than 7, I'm too tired through out the day.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    6 to 7 is my usual. Though last night I fell asleep during Dirty Jobs and took an 1.5 hour nap.

    I miss naps.

    And in College, I was probably 11-12 hours a day. (I say day because it was during the day.)

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    I currently sleep around 8-8.5 but I want to get to the point where I sleep only 7 or so. I would like to train myself to sleep less but I'm not sure if that's possible or not.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    Depends on the night really. I have a hard time falling asleep most nights. If I eat something before bed its worse. I think I sleep better in the summer than I do in winter as well.

    Re: How many hours do you sleep per night?

    Didn't DaVinci supposedly sleep less than a few hours every day?

    I've heard of some famous genius in the past who would sleep 15 minutes every four hours. Supposedly, you can do it, but you have to force yourself to get into the pattern. If you try to sleep for your 15 minutes and you can't, you have to get up and go for another 4. If I remember correctly, Kramer did something similar on Seinfeld.
