Sleep time

I envy people who can do with just 5 to 6 hours sleep. To me 7 to 8 hours is a must;less than that, I do not feel well in the morning, plus I get eye bags easily when I have very little sleep. I also dream a lot, and sometimes my dreams are even 'colored'. How about you?

I need more sleep than I get too, and can hardly get my head off the pillow. I get around 6 hours, but it isn't enough. I have dreams, but they are in black and white.

i used to sleep like 10 hours daily. but now i realized that it wasnt good, becuz half of my life i spent sleeping. i waisted like 10 years only on sleeping and nothing wise came from it. right now i can sleep 4 hours if someone wants sth from i have no problem to ignor my desire to sleep, or not to sleep 24h, once not seldom. just man things are more interesting than sleep.

People after 60 tend to sleep less number of hours than those in 50's and 40's. I think to have a regular proper sleep of 6 full hours you may think of: 1. Exercise for 1 hour, if it is difficult, 45 minutes in the morning and 45 minutes in the evening 2. A meditation for 30 minutes 3. Drink lot of water in the morning itself (2 litres) 4. Avoid meat, junk food, fat food and fried food. Switch over to vegetables. 5. Read good books.

I try to get by on 5 or so. Sometimes I burn out. Go ahead and sleep 8 hours, but you know it will cut into your Mylot time. Have a great day.

That's a good reminder! However I have competition in computer usage. My partner is a computer addict. I never can be first to use in the morning. Thanks for your reply, and have a great day too!

You must be earning a lot being online 6 hrs a day. However, keep in mind that the body needs sleep just as it needs food, so try to balance your time. Thanks for your reply, and good luck!

HAHAHAHA! I only get about 3-4 hours of sleep a day. Its horrible! I work overnights and I have 2 toddlers. I dont get much sleep. I get a nap as soon as I get home...until about noon. And thats all. I am a mess all week long. But on my days off I make up for it. I will sleep 10-15 hours a night!!! LOL

I agree with you. I need 7-8 hours otherwise I feel awful. It makes me sick and moody all day. I prefer to get about 9-10 hours though!
