    How much sleep do you get?

    On average, be honest.

    According to this site: http://www.sleep-deprivation.com/
    almost 1/4 of adults in the US (and possibly other industrial countires) do not get enough sleep.

    You need:
    Zero to 24 months: Thirteen to seventeen hours.
    Two year olds: Nine to thirteen hours.
    Ten year olds: Ten to eleven hours.
    Sixteen to 65 years: Six to nine hours.
    Over 65 years: Six to eight hours.


    Side effects of sleep deprivation:
    Exhaustion
    fatigue
    lack of physical energy
    pessimism
    sadness
    stress
    anger
    difficulty with speech control
    difficulty with memory access
    difficulty with problem solving
    symptoms of aging
    symptoms of early diabetes


    So how much sleep do you get?
    Let's see what the AO percentage is.

    Do you think you get enough sleep? Why or why not?

    Re: How much sleep do you get?

    I average about 6 hours of sleep on weekdays, and each morning I wake up I realize it is not enough. I blame this on the fact that I'm a college student and have to get up at a certain time. Also, the internet never sleeps, so it tends to keep me up. If you've ever seen the Flame Warriors site and have happened across the warrior "Nanny" the picture and description fits me well.

    Except I've got dew on top of my moniter, not coffee.

    I usually get around 7 or 8 hours, depending on my work schedule. Any less than that I get sick and cranky and blah .

    6 to 7 hours, I'm always busy on weekdays.
    I can only sleep in on Saturdays.

    Re: How much sleep do you get?

    I average about 4 to 5 hours a sleep each night. I sleep usually between the hours of 2am to 7:30am on weekdays, thanks to work. Weekends I average about 8 to 10 hours of sleep. I've been having bad sleeping habits ever since I was in elementary school and when I plan to sleep earlier, something usually gets in the way to extend my day. Also for the fact that I'm a night person and feel that the days are too short to be sleeping at 11pm or 12am, although at times it tends to happen.

    The side effects that I do experience according to the list you gave are:

    Exhaustion
    Fatigue
    Stress
    Stress
    Stress
    Stress
    difficulty with speech control (rarely)
    difficulty with memory access (rarely)
    difficulty with problem solving (rarely)

    However, I find it funny that I have plenty of exhaustion and fatigue, but I don't have lack of energy, because I have enough energy to have 8 hours of work then go to the gym for 2 hours 5 days out of the week.
    Too big. 110 is height limit.

    9+ hours: "I love to sleep. I would never leave my bed if I didn't have to eat!"
    Well, Since I graduated High School, this is me, lol. GO to sleep around 11:30-1:00, wake up anywhere from 10:00 - 1:00, I just love my comfortable bed! ^.^


    There are still some days I stay up for a few days straight though ;P
