Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I sleep about 6-7 hours a night, but it's peppered with bathroom breaks and rolling over repeatedly to try to get feeling back in the side of the body I'm lying on.

<anecdote> My wife loves my sleep cycles due to the fact that I take some serious meds for bed time (due to a disability, not for fun) which makes sure I'm never fully cognizant. This has led to exciting trips to the bathroom.  Sometimes I end up in the closet without knowing how to get out and other times I'll fall into the shower, taking the curtain down on the way.</anecdote>

(Depends on how old you are.)

The bane of my existence is the hard requirement of 6.5-7 hours sleep between 23.00 and 6.00 for feeling refreshed.

I spend my days envying people my age who only need 4 hours a night/day.

Just do the math: Say just 2.5h more uptime a day provides them with ~38 days more time to be awake in a year, which amounts to an extra lifetime over their lifetimes.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I'm pulling in ±7hrs a night for the last year or so, down from 8 or 9 for a few years before that.

However 20 years back I was living on 4 - 4½hrs a night with 7-9 hours on Friday or Saturday night, my catch up night.  And during that time, two or three times a month I'd go to work on one day and go home the next day after work.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I need a minimum of 8 hours a night, period. If I don't get it, my attitude gradually starts to nosedive.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I can get by on 6 hrs., but I prefer 7-8. I also like a cat nap for 15-20 minutes mid-afternoon.


What? Me worry?

Red pill or blue pill?

But they'll probably die that many days sooner...

I'm another 7~8 hours person. I can get by on less, but soon start to feel grungy.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I have the kind of mind that is never truly at rest unless I am sleeping. It quite quickly becomes my enemy if I do not feed it new information and challenges regularly. The more I work my mind out the more I need to rest it.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

i used to sleep more when i was younger - minimum (and i mean minimum, it could go up to 12h) 8h.

these days i am happy if i get close to 8h. usually i wake up after 7+h, which is still ok if the quality of the sleep is ok.

sometimes, when i'm stressed, it can be much less.
and sometimes i get these stretches where i can't get more than 5-6h of restless sleep (not good quality) per night, for weeks. after a few days it becomes torture.

Napping Reverses Health Effects of Poor Sleep
I take short naps regularly after work. Actually, I also have the rare opportunity to take naps occasionally at work: napping is socially accepted or at least tolerated. There's a couch in the teachers' common-room that is just a bit too short for me. Of course it is not as comfortable as my own living-room couch or plywood bunk in the fire-room. I usually don't take naps in my bed, it's primarily for overnight (5-8 hrs) sleeping.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

Pretty much like Nili.

Never slept too much in my entire life, but currently even less. I guess I'm getting old.

Naah, computers you say? No, they're not the cause. LOL

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I mostly follow a segmented sleep cycle:  3-4 hours of sleep, a couple hours awake, 2-3 hours more sleep, then my day (actually evening) job.  Apparently anthropologists recently confirmed that what I've fallen into by accident used to be the norm for people before we had conveniently lighted nights, but whether that was a good or bad thing is disputable, since people didn't tend to live anywhere near as long back then.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which disrupts my sleep pattern to the point there's no real pattern, when I get in bed, I've never any idea if I'll sleep 5 hours or 15.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I work a bit too much, i blame the work myself. I do sleeping on two different schedules.

To make a calculation, in fact I do the rest 8 hour,

I sleep 5 hour at night and 2/3h at day or afternoon, in the end i do 8 hr. But I would prefer to do without break 8 hours.

I'm 37/38years old anyway. Perhaps these changes come with age, Used to have healthy sleeping over my 20's.

Thanks for sharing your relaxation, I found usefull info regarding the rest, nice to read.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

The sleep patterns of some of the most famous and productive people in history were rather unusual.  Churchill's and Edison's sleeping habits seemed crazy to me, though interesting to read about, http://www.artofmanliness.com/2011/03/1 … amous-men/
Churchill lived to 90, and I'd say he led a rather full life, but his sleep times were very odd.  Reportedly Edison's sleep was mostly naps, and he sometimes worked 72 hours straight;  he only lived to 84.  Whatever.  I try to sleep when I can and where I can, though usually about 6hrs/night.  I find in my middle-age that I actually sleep better in a sitting position than lying down.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I can get away with 4-6 hours at the weekend but I need 6-7 hours in the week -- I did a 16 hour shift at $WORK yesterday so it was a good thing I was well rested.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

^ I'm the opposite way - shortchanging my sleep during the week only to catch up over the weekend.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

Whatever I can get, and it's all over the map. 5 hours is average, but sometimes I can fall back asleep for at least one more. If I do 5 for several nights in a row, I'm sure to do one night of 7. But sometimes I wake up after 3 hours and I can forget about falling asleep again that night.

2-4 beers seems to make me sleep better, more and I'm sweating in my sleep, less and I'm not falling asleep.

Re: How much long you rest is the question!

I have always preferred 10 hours sleep...from birth I would always need a lot of sleep to feel on top form.
Perhaps it is at the upper end of the scale but it has worked for 56 years and counting...

Just 2 points of note;
Shift Worker alert! sad
*I have worked non standard hours for 35 years and this sleep requirement probably reflects my need to recharge...
*I did work in a job (TV News) where sleep deprivation was common...so the longer sleep pattern was always a good 'recharge' for me.

I sleep around 8 hours a night.  I do suffer from sleep apnea which isn't helpful.
