One Hundred and Twenty Fifth Question

It's usually recommended that people get at least 8 hours of sleep each day. Studies show most people are sleep deprived. How much sleep do you get per day?

    I get... uh... umm... What was the question?
    JK.

    I get 6-7, usually closer to the 6 side. After all, I have 3 small kids.

    Ugh! Sleep! It does not matter if I have slept for 4 hours, of if I've gotten 12 hours of sleep, I feel AWFUL every single morning and have the HARDEST time getting out of bed ALWAYS! Whenever I have the chance to sleep a long time, I always regret it later because I feel bad all day if I get TOO much sleep.

    Between 7-8...My radiators are giving me a hard time expanding with the heat levels, so I'm up about 3 or 4 times a night with a loud Bang..Scares the "poop" out of me.

    I need at least 7 hours to feel human. Unfortunately 5 is about the most I get.

    On a work night I tend to get about 6-7. On the weekend, if the dog and cats let us sleep, I can easily go for 8-9 hours. I prefer the 8-9. If I get less than 6 on a regular basis I have a hard time talking, my brain is moving faster than my mouth is.

    between 5 and 8 depends on how long I stay on the computer at night. LOL

    i have to sleep for at least 7 hours. I can sleep for less for one night if I can then make up for it. Otherwise, I'm sort of like a baby and I get VERY cranky.

    Nine hours is ideal and I do that on the weekends whenever I can. During the week it's more like seven, eight if I'm really anal about it. Anything less than six and I'm guaranteed a headache all day the next day.

    I get 5-6 on weeknights and 8-10 on weekends. I'm a night person.

    Usually 6-8, but don't think I got more than three hours in last night. Water pipe burst on our street. Between the generator powering their floodlight and the backhoe parked outside my bedroom...well, let's just say loud machinery is not conducive to a good night's rest. :-\

    Nowadays, about 8 or 9 on average. I seem to function best on 9 hours.

    you can sleep when you die. 4-5 hours on average.

    I usually get anywhere from 5 to 6 1/2 hours. Sleep is important to me, but there's always so much to do!
