Sleep.

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
On average, how many hours a day do you people sleep?

If you could sleep for as long as you wanted - without being interupted - how long could you sleep for?

I seem to be sleeping for more than 12+ hours a day at the moment :/

    weekends, at least 13, I would do more but the man always wakes me up saying hes hungry and wants to go eat.
    weekdays i only get about 9/10 :(


    Oh I often dream about how much sleep. I'd sleep for a week with a bed pan if I could :heart::heart:

    Once or twice a month I'll get home from work, go straight to bed and not wake up until its time for work the next day. So almost 15 hours! Grand times.

    About 9 hours, if we're going from when I go to bed til when I get up. But it's usually less than that because I almost always wake up at least twice during the night.

    If I party at the wknds I need 10-12 hours sleep for 3-4 nights in the week.
    If not, then about 8-9 a night.
    Often fall asleep early evening for an hour or 2 if I sit down and watch tv.

    At the moment i'm in bed from about 11.30 till 8am, so 8.5hrs. But it's too much sleep, i wake up at about 5.30 - i function best on about 6 hours, but Himself needs much more sleep than i do so we split the difference.

    I usually get about 10 hours and then I wake up. I do wake a couple of times in the night for the loo too... but not usually awake more than 3 minutes at a time.

    When I was depressed I could sleep for over 15 hours without waking up.

    I generally get very grumpy if I get less than 8 hours. :angel:

    I usually get between 6-9 hours sleep depending on a number of things. I tend to stay up late for no reason.

    If I could get 6 hours in one stretch I'd be happy with that, given I can never sleep longer than about 3-4 hours in one go I need a good 7 or 8 hour period in which to not sleep well before I feel slightly rested.

    About 6-7 hours at the moment, but I wake up lots during that time. I've got a lot on at the moment and I'm hoping I'll get more settled sleep once all my other worries are gone.

    Eight hours in the week, easily can do ten at the weekends. I can function on six. Any less and I'm a even more grumpy bitch then normal.

    I can function properly on about 3 or 4. I tend to have about 6 or 7 in the week, more at weekends normally depending on what I'm up to.

    When I'm at college, if I have less than 8 hours I can't function properly.
    On my days off, around 9-10 comfortably.

    Now I'm done for the summer and jobless, I'm still only getting 8 hours due to my body subconciously waking me up at 7:15 for college!!

    I need about 9, any less and I start to fall asleep on buses, trains and lectures. I can function on less but I'm never quite with it.

    Same here. 6-7 in the week, 10 at weekends. Sunday nights are always a gamble though and I've been struggling lately. 2 hours if I'm lucky. It's because of work though.

    On a normal uni day or weekend (if I'm not out) I get 8 and a half hours. If I'm on placement and getting up at half 5 then its more like 7 hours. I can't sleep much longer than 8 hours, my body automatically wakes me up at half 6 :rolleyes: ....good job I'm a morning person!
