always struggled with insomnia, leaving me in a permanent state of tiredness. but as of late I started medicating for it, and it's really helped. I now sleep 9-12 hours every night, heavily like a block of concrete
I used to sleep 6 or so hours and it was fine. I just started being able to sleep 8, sometimes, and I could really fucking use it, so I'm happy as a clam about that.
When im actually asleep im a deep sleeper, but I wake up a lot in the middle of the night or wee hours.
Usually 8 hours, sometimes 9, and occasionally 7. But lately I've been waking up in the middle.
I'm a light sleeper. Very much so. If you talk next to me while I'm sleeping, unless I'm in REM, I'll probably be aware of it. Fortunately it doesn't take me long to fall back to sleep if I've just woken from it prematurely. I also tend to remember my dreams very well.
I need 7-8, but my realistic average is probably more like 6-7. I actually used to be much much worse about it, but as I’ve gotten older my endurance for that has dropped. To be honest, I hate sleep and don’t truly want to turn my mind off even when it’s very tired, but it’s not a choice.
Usually I sleep through the night, but have much more trouble getting to sleep in the first place, and have had a few times in my life where it was disrupted regularly in the middle of the night by mental states.
I naturally wake up around 7.5-8 hours, but when I was younger I could sleep 10 hours without waking up near the end. Nowadays if I oversleep I will get these weird physiological effects which make it not worth it.
I think 8 hours is the right number, too. Anything less and I suffer at least a little bit during the day. Less than 3 hours is max suffering, feel it all day. 4-5 hours is mid-suffering, I'll feel it around noon, or 3-4 hours after I wake up. 6-7.5 hours is maybe I'll notice it at the end of the day, or 8 hours after I wake up.
I am a fairly light sleeper. I am anxious at night.
I typically get 6 hours on weekdays, which is enough to function ok and I usually need about a half an hour to sleep. I really need 8 hours to function at my best though, which I get during the weekend.
However, I am a night owl and I have an early morning job so I have become dependent on melatonin to sleep and coffee to wake up. I am also a light sleeper, so noises can easily wake me up.

In high school and soon after, I was getting by on 4 hrs of sleep (school+2jobs). Then I had my daughter, and I had no choice but try to make it on 6 hrs of sleep. Now that I'm older I need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep to make it through to bedtime, else I need a 20-60minute nap. My bedtime hours are between 8-10pm, and my wake up time is 4-5am. And I toss and turn a LOT, and sometimes get up to walk off some hip pain or regain feeling in my hands (severe carpal tunnel syndrome).
I've always been a super light sleeper Though these days I've finally gotten most of that trained out of me.
I also used to pop right up out of bed upon awakening, and now I laze around, postponing the start of the day.

For ears, I would sleep 12 hours a night. Now, thanks to a medication I'm taking, I can only manage about half that much.

I can easily sleep 9 hours if undisturbed.
8 hours is best though.. I try to sleep at 10pm and wake up at 6am.
I enjoy an occasional sleep deprivation though.

For the past few months, I’ve been keeping track of how many hours I sleep at night, and the running average is 5.9 hours. But I sometimes take 20 to 30 minute naps in the afternoon; once or twice a week.
I think I feel best when I get 6.5 to 7.5 hours of sleep. But I tend to stay up too late and therefore short myself the sleeping hours I need.
I go to bed around 8 pm, or I'll just listen to some music and chill for awhile. Then maybe around 9-10 pm I stop listening and fall asleep. Sometimes (quite often) I fall asleep with the music playing and I wake up later and turn it off.
I've had the habit of staying up too late, but I have forced myself to go early to bed because I hate being tired during the day, it consumes my whole being.
I wake up around 6 am. I am a light sleeper and often wake up during the night. So I get maybe 8 hours. I need at least that much sleep.
I'm kind of an early bird, if I go to sleep at 11 I can wake up at 5 and be energetic, but if I go to sleep at 1 and sleep until 7 I feel like shit.

slept 9 hours last night, feels good man
ive been having sleeping problems all summer waking up all the time and sshit ugh
I think it is important to have a girlfriend / boyfriend ect someone to sleep with. Then you'll sleep like a baby. Best way to improve sleep quality.
7-9 hours, I think it's ideal.
I normally sleep for about 7 hours, or I will sleep for 3 hours in the day and then 4-5 at night.
Sometimes I will notice myself overthinking way too much and then my thoughts and emotions keep me up at night but I have been much better at calming myself down, letting everything go- so I can get deeper healing sleep.
