im wondering how much sleep is generally recomended for a young adult each night ..
more than the average young person gets.
I sleep 10 hours naturally with no alarm.
Always heard 8 hours no more no less...of course I don't even come close to that. I'll sleep 12 hours straight sometimes, other times I'll sleep 5 hours and get right back up. Also day and night don't matter...I'll sleep daytime or nighttime depending on what's on my schedule.
I don't know but I only get 5 hours of sleep a night and that is not enough.
During the week I average about five hours. On the weekend it ranges from 7 to 9. I have heard 7 to 9 is the norm.
I get about 7 hours, which I think isn't enough! :embarassed:
Usually get about 4 hrs per night during the week and 8-10 on the weekend to make up for lack of sleep.
Had a college professor that said if you sleep over 4 hrs. a night that you're sleeping your life away and he was 76 yrs old at the time.
Ask new parents about getting enough sleep.
Id say 8 hrs but sometimes 8 hrs of uninterrupted sleep is impossible.
7 is plenty..
You need less as you get older..
6 to 6 1/2 with 2 bathroom breaks.
What is uninterrupted sleep?
If you sleep eight hours every night and live to 75 you will have spent 25 years of your life asleep. Add to that time spent eating, on the pot, showering and day dreaming, its a total wonder that anything ever gets done.
so using that logic you spend another 1/3 of your life working for someone else generally ..
and the other 1/3 is your time to play with ..
I aim for six hours or so. But usually get up once at some point for our ten month old.
And she's got a tummy ache tonight... so it'll probably be a few times.
6 for me and I don't think it's enough.
Lemme see: Bout four hours then time for the can. Two hours then kitty wants to chat about daybreak. One hour and it's time to make it to the coffee pot. Then there's a couple naps during the day and maybe after supper, sometimes. Repeat as needed.
Gosh! It's good to be retired.
4-9 depending on the next days activities.
I was averaging 6 hours a night and it was enough. When I started lifting hard, anything less than 8-9 hours and it isnt enough.
I usually just try and sleep 1 hour for every 2 hours Im awake
