    how much sleep do you get a night? do you want or need more? does lack of sleep have an impact on your life or do you just shrug it off as the cost of living in these times? if you're a little older, do you need less or more sleep than when you were younger?

    i'm in bed for about seven hours a night and probably get about six hours of sleep. i wish i could get more. lack of sleep is definitely a problem for me but i don't know how to change it. i need less sleep than when i was a teenager or in my 20s. for me, an ideal night's sleep is seven hours. eight or nine is awesome. any more than that and i'm probably a grump the rest of the day.

    What's that??

    Seriously, I don't require much sleep. Six hours is plenty, any more than that and I feel worn out as if I didn't sleep at all.

    I'm prone to insomnia.
    These days I've been getting six to seven hour consistently, which is great for me.

    Six hours on average. some nights it'll be four or five hours depending on when work ends and when getting the kids ready for school begins.

    On Sundays, though, I like to take a long nap.

    Six to seven. Some nights four or five, some nights eight or nine. I'm usually fine.

    I can never get enough sleep. If I got 12 hours in a night I'd be a giddy, happy camper.

    I go anywhere from three to 10.

    Who needs sleep?
    be happy with what you're getting
    There's a guy who's been awake
    since the Second World War

    My hands are locked up tight in fists
    My mind is racing, filled with lists
    of things to do and things I've done
    Another sleepless night's begun

    At least 8 hours a night, preferably 10.

    I'd prefer nine. My sleep cycle is in three hour cycles, so as long as I have a mulitple of three I'm OK. Normally, I sleep six hours a night, but if I sleep five or seven, I'm not a happy morning person.

    I don't know what you're talking about. I plead the fifth.
