I like to sleep sometimes 10 hours and sometimes 18 hours and you ?
usually 8 hours..but if i have time..i love to sleep for 10 hours...
I'm the same way.. and have been persecuted for this lovely lifestyle choice, despite the fact it replenishes one's body and prepares it for post-sleeping meals
ten hours? That sounds like a dream! I reckon I get about 6 - 7, but need about 8. Still, my own fault, since I am still on the computer and is now 01.20 am!
4 is OK for me if I can have the occasional 6-hour-sleep to catch up. These days, I often do a kind of 3.5 hours here, another 1.5 hours there, kind of thing. I don't have young kids to take care of, and I work on my time (at least a good part of the time) so it kind of works. A couple of days a week I'll sleep 5.5 or 6 hours in a row if I start feeling too much like crap.
i don't want to sleep at all especially at night.I enjoy the night so much that in recent years i have slept a very little at night though i slept a long hour in daytime and bunked my classes.
I like to sleep at least 8 hours but am okay with 7-ish. Any less than that and I suffer from sleep deprivation and eventually need to make it up.
Yeah! I could sleep for 10 hours no problem. The dog does it and he seems happy with life :-)
Agreed. Anything more than six is a great night. Just slept 5 hrs. 15 min.
I would be delighted if sleep were optional. Sure, I like to sleep occasionally, but for the most part it's a necessary evil. Emphasis on the evil.
I'm not a big fan of sleeping. There are too many "important" things to do. First there are all the day-to-day responsibilities most of us have. Then, though, there's the even more "important" stuff like watching re-runs of late-night talk shows, infomercials, and being on the computer at 2/3 a.m. Being a useless vegetable is a vital part of any busy day.
Infomercials have often kept me up all night. I'd love to be in one.
I wanna sleep only for 3-5 hours. Whenever i plan to do some important thing, sleep becomes a big hurdle
7-8 hours is what I need.. If i get less, i feel totally tired for the rest of the day
I have a baby. I never get enough sleep.
12 hours would be wonderful though.
I probably shouldn't mention this "encouraging" bit of information; but from the time I was five months along with my son, until he was seven and his little sister was four, I got no more than 4 hours of sleep a night, often 3. Finally, one Friday night I got a whole six hours of sleep! (And these were kids who sleep all night too. It was just that they got up really early, I'd be watching one or the other when they were babies (on was a premie who had to be watched), or else I'd stay up after they went to sleep in order to begin my "second living shift" as a writer (and house-cleaner). It was a "good kind of exhausted", though.
hmm i wish i could just sleep a whole night..
if i go to bed before midnight i seem to wake with a headache, the othertimes, i'm always laying awake because my neck constantly hurts so i'm normally online until 2 or 3 am, sometimes 4, yet last monday was 4.45am, then up at 7 to start my day all over again. tomorrow, ok, thats only 20mins away, is saterday so.. i can actually sleep in until 8am, but its still not midnight yet and i have soooo much to do.. a brain like mine never sleeps, it wont even stop talkin long enough for me to leave the keyboard alone.. one day i'll find my once in a lifetime 5 minutes peace, i just can't remember how i did it or where i learnt it.. so for now.. a couple hours here an there is all i get.
Can't sleep more than 8 hours, will get a whopping headache if I do. Normally it's about 6 hours per night, and sometimes a couple of short catnaps.
i just realised while saying hellow to yet another HP friend.. that the more tired i get, the poetry begins..
right thats it! nearly 2am.. time for bed.. night all may you enjoy great dreams and travels and what ever other things.
yes i'm goin .. before i start more hubs.. haha tomorrow is already here so umm yeah...
Sleep? What's that? I work the graveyard shift at a hospital We start at 7 pm and get off at 07:30 if we are 'on time'. This morning was not one of those days/eve. I stayed an extra hour and now will sleep for 4 hrs only in order to swing back to the 'normal' sleep pattern this w/e. Ave sleep: 4 - 5 hrs.
I want,desire and NEED 8 hours!However, that never happens. I average 3-5 and I am ready to collapse. I work 3 jobs, go to school online and am a single mom of a 12 yr old and a 2 year old. I am tired....can you hear me whining?????
Hi, Paula. Try to find time and do some napping! Make it routine, every day. At least 10 minutes! it works and you will feel better as soon as you get used to have it. I've been in your shoes. Make 12 year old watch 2 year old and have a nap! I used to do it between jobs. I could get myself ready for a second job, put my head to bed,close my eyes and go to sleep, in 10 minutes I wake up without the alarm or anything and just go to work. Your body needs rest, or it will break or you'll get sick. It is serious. We are build that way we have to rest to stay healthy.
girl, i hear ya... takes it's toll big time, ya have to find a balance..
i had 3 jobs until i got 2 more, now i have none, i am sooo happy!
i used to start my firfst one which was cleaning bakery offices at 3am, finish at 6 in time to go and pick everyone up to go to our day job working in a vineyard, that was 40mins away from home.. then at 3.45 i'd drop them all off again, race home for a coffee then go to my waitressing job by 5pm, finish anywhere from 11pm to 1am, an start all over again.
after a year i quit waitressing through the week and only did sat nights the rest on call.. wel i was called in regularly anyway, but i did love it. the vineyard finished for the season and i took up a job in logistics, 4pm to 2am mon to fri.. there went waitressing through the week, but i never had a life with my friends.. it was only a temp job so i was happy when it finished but loved the pay.. after that i gave up the cleaning job, and became a cycle posite.. until i broke some ribs flyin off a motorbike lol then damaging my hand breaking in a wild horse.. followed by a cracked forehead, there went work for a year.. when i was healed i was working 77hours a week meat processing.. i was still working on horses in my spare time, sleep.. it just doesn't happen, and now i suffer the pain from years of muscle strain and can't sleep anyway.. moral is.. learn from MY mistakes.. no job is worth the amount of pain i have to live in on a daily basis, and i'm not even on sickness benefit, i don't beleive in it.. i now work from home and earn enough to pay the rent and a bit more.. but i'm not on hub to earn money, i'm here to play and have fun and meet hundreds of awesome people sharing their stories with others...
everyone.. if you have more than one job.. it only means just over broke, or just obey the boss... it's not worth it.
You're absolutely right! I used to do up to 4 jobs, now I only do one, and get by on what I've got ... it really is better that way.
But the one I have takes it out of me. Day before yesterday I worked so long that I only got 2.5 hours sleep. But today I'm off, and had a whole 7 hours last night, so there's nothing really to complain about.
BTW: People who only need 7 hours, like me, live longer. Saw a documentary about it on TV.
I've heard that a healthy sleep is about 6 hours. But right now we are in race of competing with the world and having a situation where our time is flying and we can't spare a single min, we must give some time to ourselves by taking proper sleep and rest.
10. But I don't want to miss out on too much of the day. So 8.
I would like about 10 hours - once in awhile, just for fun. But it's really more like 4 or 5 and then several hours of up and down up and down. I don't know if there's anything I can do about it, but I feel most of the time like I'm running on empty. Once in awhile I get to take a little nap in the afternoon and that feels, oh, so good!
When I'm working - usually six days a week - 4 hours. When I've got the day off it's 7.
Reading some of the replies, I can't believe so many people get by on so little sleep!
Sleep - I crave sleep. Haven't slept well since we moved to CA.
A few years ago I was getting over some kind of flu thing. I was shocked to see that I'd slept over 12 hours. I thought this was a big deal, until a bunch of people I mentioned it to said, "Oh, yeah - I'll sleep 14 hours at a stretch here or there."
3 hours is enough for me..I don't know why I don't feel like sleeping much. When I have a free time, I'd rather watch TV while eating, otherwise face the computer and explore..
I don't hardly get enough sleep. I have very irregular sleep habits and I don't think it helps that I am overseas now either. I wish.
I used to sleep 9 hours, but love to sleep about 12 hours or more....
I sleep about 8 hours ,when I can. But for work often I sleep less and my days are ruined!
yes, 8 is the advisable number of hours to sleep for a healthy mind and body
I would love to get at least 6 hours a night, but usually only manage 4 or 5.
But we also like naps during the day when we can get away with it...
Until I need or want to get up is the simple answer for me. I don't go by time; i just go by what my body tells me what it needs.
Until the sky doesn't clear up.. I hate waking up when it is still dark outside
I wish I didn't have to sleep - so much to do, so many books to read, so much to write, so many things to get done...
