    I know I need about 8 hours of sleep. But sometimes my body feels feels like I could use 12 hours.

    If I get less than eight hours of sleep, I feel tired all day. I've never understood how some people can live with only four or five hours of sleep a night!

    I think I need a lot more than I get.  I mostly sleep about 7 hours a night but sometimes wish I could sleep 10 or more.  My only problem is that when I get more, sometimes I feel worse.

    I think too much sleep can leave a person more tired than otherwise.

    It also helps to have a balanced lifestyle.  If one does physical work all day, it's exhausting, at the same time, if one does office work all day, it's just as exhausting.  it's important to mix physical activity with mental activity.  It helps reduce tiredness or even exhaustion.

    Also, growing children tend to need more sleep.  People with injuries or illness need more sleep to recuperate.  As one grows older, the body needs more recovery time as well.

    I know we need 8 hours. But since I suffer from insomnia, I do great on 3 to 4 hours.

    your body generally needs about 8 hours of sleep but I usually get between 5 to 6 hours a night and I feel great

    good news is that you don’t have to choose between health and productivity. As you start getting the sleep you need, your energy and efficiency will go up. In fact, you’re likely to find that you actually get more done during the day

    schedule enough time for sleep.
    Aim for at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
    Keep a sleep diary. Record when you go to bed, when you get up, your total hours of sleep, and how you feel during the day. As you keep track of your sleep, you’ll discover your natural patterns and get to know your sleep needs.
    developing a relaxing bedtime routine,
    Go to bed at the same time every night and allow yourself to sleep until you wake up naturally. No alarm clocks! If you continue to keep the same bedtime and wake up naturally, you’ll eventually arrive at the sleep schedule that’s ideal for you.
