Yes, I have slept for 12 hours last night. It didn´t happen to me until today. I wonder if the cold weather is making me sleepy. Thinking about my long sleep, I am glad I woke up. Hubby just let me slept. It felt like I was having a winter sleep but then it is still Autumn. It seems that my annoyance yesterday about the internet has let me slept for a long time. I am glad that our internet connection is okay again. I wonder if the disturbance was from the outside connection of the provider. How long do you sleep every night? I am going to watch a comedy movie starred with De Nero on tv. It has been a long time I have seen a movie on tv. I forgot the name of the movie. I will let you know the title later. Now I know, it is "Dirty Grandpa." Thanks for reading. Have a nice weekend.

I sleep for 7_8 hours everyday. But sometimes I do sleep longer to catch up with lost sleeping hours due to something or when sick or too tired. The longest I have slept is 14 hours. Glad that your internet is back and working well.

Just the same with me @arunima25. 8 hours is my normal sleeping amount, the least is 7. Yes, I am glad it is back again. Thank you.

I would give quite a bit to sleep for 12 hours - even for 8 hours!! I don't usually sleep very well.

@thelme55 It's okay. I think as you get older you don't sleep so well.

Your body needed that sleep. It was normal for you. 7-8 hours usually is good enough for me.

@thelme55 I sometimes require less sleep or more sleep. Our bodies know when to wake us up

Sometimes, we can sleep long enough so as to compensate for lost sleep earlier on some days. Even some days I feel like sleeping more but due to certain habits, I wake up earlier than expected.

You probably needed the sleep. I sedated myself last night..and slept well, but I didn't want to get up this morning. I could have probably dozed another two hours. I did get up though instead.

You really needed those 12 hours of sleep. I sleep about 8 hours each night; sometimes 7 hours.

If you are really tired your body is telling you to rest.

@marlina I can imagine that. I always felt tired when I was lacking sleep and I was not in the mood for doing anything at all.

I've slept quite a lot lately, last Friday I think I slept 12 hours. 'Cause last Thursday I was standing on a very cold and foggy hill for too long, so on Friday I had a bit of a cold. Home office and lots of sleep, made it so much better that I didn't have to stay at home for days.

@thelme55 Putting on a lot of clothes to avoid getting a cold. It's even more annoying than usually to have one now. Hope you have a lovely weekend too, with nice autumn weather. No winter weather in Germany yet?

@Torunn yes, it is annoying and heavy to carry wearing layers of clothes. Thank you. No, not yet winter weather but it is still cold for an autumn. We have 11 degrees celcius. Enjoy your Sunday.

For as long as it does not happen always l guess it’s okay. Oversleeping according to some can also be bad on body metabolism since there are some biological functions that are skipped when you sleep more that the normal number of hours. Under sleeping maya also have the same outcome. So it’s better yo stay sleep between 6-10 hour would be good.

It does not happen often @rsa101 that I slept for more than 8 hours. I usually sleep 8 hours a night. 6 hours of sleep is not enough for me and I might end up sleeping in the afternoon or having a headache. Thank you.

@thelme55 Headache is a sign that sleep is lacking or you got too much of it. If you’ve overslept you might also feel the same headache too.

Will try to watch his film also if I can find it on youtube. If you slept that long then you needed it for sure. I have slept about nine hours today and was still a bit sleep after.

I sleep like 7 hours a day. I do think some people who get home tired from certain jobs can have a 12-hour sleep.
