How many hours you sleep in a day?

I read on a science book that we should sleep at least 6-8 hours a day. But there is also this book that says that as we get older, the time we sleep decreases as well. How many hours do you sleep? I sleep 5-6 hours a day. It is fine with me. I can still function without feeling tired easily.

generally i sleep for 7 hrs a day but during my exams i hardly sleep for 4 hrs a day more over when i have some pending office file then sometimes i even go without sleep. i dont feel any problem with it but it depends on the mindset u have if u think u can control it then u can be sleepless otherwise u will be snoring whole day

It is really hard when we have so many work to do. It deters our sleeping and even eating sometimes.

It is sad to know. Sleeping is almost like eating. And really one of the best good thing in life.

i sleep anywhere from 5-9 hours a day. it depends on what time i go to bed and how tired i am and if or not i have to get up for something. i love it when i can get more sleep. sleeping is good. one of the best things ever. its funny tho, i love to sleep but i hate being a asleep sometimes because i feel like i might be missing something.
