How many hours do you sleep every night?

It is said that we must have at least 8 hours of sleep everyday. But we have too many tasks to complete which take much of our time. For example, we surf on the net and do not know how much time have elapsed. I go to sleep at 10 pm and wake up at 5 am. This means that I sleep for 7 hours. For me it is a reasonable time. What about you? At what time do you go to sleep?

My organism needs 8 hours of sleep. If I sleep less I feel tired. But I heard there are people who need more or less. So night sleeping hours depends on everybody's needs. I also heard that the more we grow older the less hours of night sleep we need. I think it's logic: babies need more hours of sleep than adults. Also best time to go to sleep is before midnight or at the moment you feel sleepy.

Currently, I'm at night shift so my sleeping is usually around 5~6 hours a day. I put on an aircon so that the heat won't be a problem anymore but my child who is still 2 years old really wants to play with me. I only get to sleep when he's also asleep or if he has other things to play with.

I would be very lucky if I hit a 7 hours sleep every night. For a start, I'm a parent and need to prioritize first my health with respect to my family. I've learned to sleep part 11pm every night and wake up at 4 am every single day of my family life. With an exception of course of a few days in a year when there had nothing to do in the house. As a parent, i have learned to sacrifice a little for the benefit of my family.

Actually i love to sleep a lot. I don't have any specific timings. Sometimes i go to bed early, sometimes i go late. Sometimes i sleep only for 4 to 5 hours a day. Everything depends on my mood. One day i slept for nearly 19 hours. that is the biggest.

Three to five.. if I am lucky. Often times, particularly the summer months, I am not even falling asleep until the earliest light of day has begun to show itself. Today, I have managed to get four solid hours of sleep with two hours off and on through naps, as I do not feel well.

I always just used to sleep little early and will get us very soon. I just go to by bad at 10 after completing all my works and my meals and i will wake up at early 4 am. This is my sleeping and wake us time. I feel this time is really fit for me.

Being a single & working mother, I only get average of 5 hours of sleep everyday, usually it's less. During days off, I get to sleep more, and that is only 2 days every week.

I usually get around 7 hours of sleep and it's usually not at night because I stay up all night. I sleep around 5 in the morning then wake up at noon just in time for my lunch. I am used to sleeping at this hour probably because I used to work in such time and up to now I acquired it.

I guess it depends on how much I work and how busy I am during the day to be honest.. It varies a lot, some nights I could sleep for say 8-10 hours other nights I might only get 5 hours sleep..

I think I usually get between 8-10 hours of sleep every night. Sometimes I'll wake up even after I go to bed but I'll fall back asleep and sometimes sleep in later.

I never sleep the same amount of time. When im at my boyfriends i usually dont sleep good and im up through the night so i go to work tired, this is becasue im sweating over there due to the AC being not on and really hot. I do sleep better when im at my house most of the time. If we had a bigger bed it would be better and i would probably sleep through the night instead of waking up. I know last night for example i went to bed at around 11 and got up at 4 to go to the bathroom then his nephew was staying at the house and he had a bloddy nose at 4:30 then i was helping him and i thinkg i might have went back to bed around 6:15 and i had to be up at 7 to get ready for work so not to much sleep last night and im tired.

I get about 7 hours of sleep and I can go to sleep any time after one am and sometimes around 4 am. I have no where to go the next day and it will be later.

The amount of time I sleep differes on a daily basis depending on work and band commitments. If I have nothing to do on a partiular day I might sleep maybe ten/eleven hours especially if I have had a sleep deprived week. I'd say I average 7 1/2 hours a day.
