How much sleep do you need a night?
« on: February 27, 2007, 01:53:23 AM »

I'm sitting here wondering this as I'm up late not really accomplishing anything. I usually need to average out around 7, but as long as I average out individual nights can vary wildly.

We have a newborn preemie baby, and I'm on indefinite leave while Mrs Velo works days.
Sleep is something I catch in between feedings, but not really even then.
Voof!
She's a sweet baby, though.

I said 9-10 because that's what I PREFER to get. I usually only get 7, maybe 8, just because I don't go to bed early enough. On the weekends when I don't have to get up, my body lets me sleep up to 10 hours before I naturally wake up.

6.5-7 hours is just about perfect for me. Works well with my schedule too: 11p-6a.
I know 8 is recommended, and it's okay. Less than 5 is too little for me.
Over 9-10, when I'm not sick, is way too much. I end up with a fuzzy brain all day, though not quite as bad as when it's less than 5.

Sometimes I prefer two three hour 'naps' instead of a full six to eight hour sleeping session. I don't know why, but usually I do that when I got a problem to solve and just need mental down time to work on it in dreams.

I usually get between seven and nine hours of sleep, eight on average.

Sometimes I only sleep one or two hours a night when I have a crap load of work to do....I can't get much done in a 8 hour work day.....So I work like 20-40 hours, or untill I can't stay up any more, take a 1-2 hour nap, and repeat untill complete.

Since my schedule is so weird, it depends.  Sometimes I sleep four hours a night, and sometimes I sleep 14.  I've slept for as long as two days at a time, because usually I won't sleep much, and I spend the majority of my time working.  Four hours seems to keep me more awake than 14 though.

There does seem to be such a thing as too much sleep.
Damn those bears for their ability to hibernate.
