    How many hours of sleep do you get per night?

    I typically get five to six hours at night. I'm in bed between midnight and 1 AM and up by 6 or 6:30. Most of the time, I also take a nap (1 to 2 hours) in the early evening, around 6 or 7 PM.

    I've read some interesting theories about how people used to sleep twice a day for a total of 6 to 8 hours, rather than once a day for a complete 8 hours. Lately, it seems to be working for me. If I get my evening nap and five hours of sleep, I feel well rested in the morning. If I miss that nap, though, only having five to six hours of sleep at night can leave me a little wiped out.

    I make sure I get enough sleep about 6 to 7 hours of sleep especially when I am going to work the next day. I find this is enough for me. If I am off the next day I might go to bed late and get up late.

    7 hours per day. From 9pm to 4 am because my kids are going to school. Very tired. Sometimes, my kiddo sleeps at 10.30pm and wakes at 7am but i still had to wake up at 4am eventhough i sleep late.

    I try to get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep per day. Because I have issues with insomnia, I never sleep late or take a nap.

    On a good night I get five hours, six at best and that is rare. I have insomnia and have had it since I was a youth. I have tried every suggestion. It takes me longer to fall asleep. I do take medication, so I sleep soundly for a few hours, but then can be awaken easily and once awake, it is hard to go back to sleep. I am tired most of the day, but never missed work because of a bad night's sleep.

    It varies.  I am a night owl and find my creative juices flow late at night, so I am oftentimes up until 1am.  I can run on maybe 6 hours a night for a while, but then I will have a really early night and sleep for 11 or 12 hours straight to "catch up".

    I average approximately 5 hours of deep delta wave length sleep and approximately 1 hour of REM since 2003. It seems to be ideal for me. My better-half complains on occasion because it is difficult to wake me up in the middle of the night. Yet I am up in the early mourn and sometimes I "stur" her too soon...
