How many hours a day do you sleep. I sleep for about 7-8 hours a day, If i sleep less than 6 hours a day i feel brain-dead the next morning and cannot concentrate on anything.

I usually like to sleep about 6 hours but lately it seems as though I am sleeping more. I think that it is important to get plenty of sleep but it seems that if I sleep over 6 hours, I do not do well with the rest of the day.

On average I get about 6-7 hours of sleep. I've had this sinus infection for a few years now, so whenever I lay down or the room temperature is above normal, it clogs up and I can hardly breathe. I can't wait to be able to get a full 8-9 hour rest once I get rid of the infection, those years were like paradise.

sleep like food and water are necessary for maintaining a fit body and a healthy mind.Its very important for everyone-starting from infants to aged adults.infants need atleast 16 hours of healthy sleep,children and teenagers-9 hours ,adults-6 hours and aged people need a little more...10hours or so.

I try to get about 8-9 hours of sleep a night. Less than that, and I get crabby really easy. More than that, and I feel fuzzy all day long.

I almost sleep, five to six hours, in a day. If possible I have a nap for a hour in the afternoon and five hours at night.

i work from 9pm-6am.. got home by 8am.. sleep by 10am and wake up by 3 or 4pm to eat my lunch.. that would only give me about 5-6 hours of sleep in a day! wish i could also have 8-12 hours of sleeping like you guys!
