Roughly, how many hours sleep do you get each night?
« on: November 01, 2017, 07:03:24 AM »
I have bouts of insomnia, during which I sleep less than four hours a night. Not too bad at the moment, I get between 5 - 6 hours which is quite alot for me.

What about you lot??

Apparently just a few nights of bad sleep 'upsets' the brain. No shit.

I'd say 7-8 on average during the week

weekends can be erratic though :)

I get a little more at the weeknds alhtough my 'body clock' wakes me at 5am any day of the week. Difference is at the weekend, I can usually nod off for another hour or two. uring the week I get stressed about getting up late for work.

How many hours per day is maybe the thing that matters not how many in the nocturnal hours. My sleeping is eratic sometimes... never count the hours... but the bits and pieces probably add up to plenty enough...

This is interesting. Folk used to have two sleeps with an hour or so in between
