    How many hours do you sleep each night?

    We know or we hear that 7-10 hours of sleep is what most people (adults and children included) need to be fully rested. However this differs from person to person. When do you personally feel you have rested and how do you ensure you get enough sleep in today's fast paced and demanding world?

    I sleep 6 to 8 depending on several things.  If I have no writing to do I go to bed at a decent hour and if I do have writing then I may slack on sleep.  I think middle age people have a hard time sleeping I took a pole once about middle age people and they all said they have insomnia I use to but I sleep well now.

    LOL, my answer will be two: The amount of hours I actually sleep, and the amount of hours I should (or wish) have slept!

    1. I sleep 5 to 7 hrs most nights.
    2. I wish it were a full 8 hrs every night smile

    Anywhere from 5 - 9 hours a week it fluctuates. I am what they call a failure in terms of sleep.

    When and if I'm lucky about 7 hours.  There are many nights I go to bed early enough, however falling asleep is the problem.  Usually the days worries or stress are on my mind.  I have trouble staying asleep, tending to toss and turn a great deal sad  I know it is not the bed.  I think it is because of stress.  Any ideals welcome!

    It depends whether or not you are in deep sleep.

    For anyone who can be in deep sleep then I think it will be enough for 4 - 6 hours. But if the person is light sleeper like me, then will require longer hours.

    Now I know that I should be having less activities in the night so that I can sleep better. So now I am sleeping earlier and waking up earlier.

    So, average around 6 -8 hours of sleep for me.

    I feel that my body needs eight hours of sleep.  When I have slept a full eight hours, I wake up without an alarm.  When I do not have a full eight hours, it is my alarm that wake me up.   

    If your alarm has woken you up, that means that you body would have like more sleep if your alarm had allowed it.

    Sleep deprivation results in hormonal changes that cause weigh gain.

    I typically get between 4 - 6 hours of broken sleep during each 24 hour period. I am a raging insomniac and have not slept a full eight hours in years, not due to a lack of trying.

    I wish i could sleep 8 straight hours.But I sleep only 4-5 hours of broken sleep, thanks to my doctors and loads of medications.This is happening to me since quite a few years. Now my body is also got used to this routine and do not get tired or anything.  So I am okay with only 4 hours of sleep everyday.

    Not more than 8 hours. I think it is enough as i feel fresh myself and it is painful to lay bed for more.

    I generally get around 6 or 7 hours sleep every night, which isn't really enough for me. Ideally I feel better if I have 9 hours sleep a night. At the weekends when I'm not at work, I have a sleep in til around 8 or 9am.

    well, I usually get 7 or 8 hours sleep every night, from 11:00 or 12:00 pm to 7:00 am. I have a regular sleep, and never stay up all night. I insist in this for I believe it will benefit to my health.

    Due to the hectic work shedule I get only around 6 hours of sleep per day and I seem that is quite enough to recharge yourself.

    I sleep about 8 hrs a night. I have very busy school days so I tend to like to get to bed around 8:30 if possible. It all depend on the amount of hw I have to do and any after school activities I have to go to.
