Re: How much sleep do you need?

k since I've been trying since Sunday to recover the sleep I lost on Saturday night, I thought I'd ask everyone how much sleep do you need in order to feel well rested AND what time do you normally go to bed and wake up in the morning?
I need at least 8 hours
I go to bed at around 10 and generally fall asleep within in the hour
My alarm is set at 7 and my clock is 25 minutes ahead and I hit the snooze at least twice (9 minutes each).
I just want to go to sleep NOW!
I stayed out till around 5AM last Saturday, I walked home from downtown through many alleys trying to avoid being picked up and thrown in the drunk tank, that took me a couple of hours to get home, and I had to work the next day @ 11. *So I never really had a chance to sleep in on Sunday and make up for lost time....but oddly enough that allowed me to get back onto schedule faster. You see on Sunday night I was so damn tired that I slept soundly and I actually even woke up Monday morning before my alarm clock even went off. *If you are sleeping for more than 9 hours no matter how tired you are that is called oversleeping, and it is just as bad as not geting enough sleep. *You will know you had a good sleep if you wake up before you need too (assuming not because you have to take a piss or your waking up in less then 7.5 hours), if this ever happens to you do yourself a favour and dont go back to sleep, climb out of bed and you will feel great in no time. *If you go back to sleep you are wasting your time because it takes atleast a couple of hours to fall all the way into REM sleep which is actually the only real productive part of sleep. *So having 20 or 30 minute naps mid day basically is a waste of time, save all your sleep for one time in the day. *
