I can’t believe how well my “what time do you go to bed” post went over!
But it did spark a new curiosity for me: how many hours of sleep do you get, on average, during the work week? (not weekends, because I know there can be a huge discrepency there! and if you work a non traditional work week, I mean YOUR work week, not M-F!)

I have to get at least 7 hours of sleep a night or I will be feeling it the next day. I wish I could get less sleep though…I imagine all the things I could get done…

I usually go to bed between 10pm and 11pm and wake up at 7am so I get between 8-9 hours of sleep (so I voted 8.5 average). That usually doesn’t feel like enough though!

Weekdays, I usually get between 7-8. It’s very rare I get more (or less!) than that.

During the work week I usually get about 6-6 1/2. Ive never been a good sleeper so if Im stressed out even a little bit I will wake up all night long.
This morning I was up early before work shoveling for an hour so I’m exhausted!

I try to get about 7-8, sometimes it’s only 6 though and on those days I seem to do better. I don’t get it.

On average, 6.5 hours to me.

It depends for me I have insomnia so sometimes I don’t sleep at all but then again if I am lucky I can get almost 7!

@LRin2011: It’s possible that you have a 3 hour sleep cycle and so when you get 7 or 8 hours (especially if an alarm wakes you up) you’re waking in the middle of a sleep cycle, which can really throw you off.

i’d say at least 8 hours on average.

Whenever I’m left to my own devices (i.e. no alarm), I naturally wake up 9.5 hours after I go to bed. Like on the DOT. So, I figure that’s what my body needs, and I try to plan accordingly.

Wow, everyone who gets 6 hours a night has my complete and total sympathy :-/
I get around 8 hours. Sometimes slightly more, sometimes slightly less.

Seriously! 6 hours on average? No way! My body can manage on 7 1/2 but loves 9 1/2. Sometimes 10 if it’s on a weekend. 6 and I’d be a zombie!

I’m a full time law student, but during my school week (I have class Mon-Thurs, so I’m talking Sunday night through Wednesday night), I typically sleep about 5-6 hours. I have 7:30am class that I have to leave by 6:15am for, and I just can’t go to bed earlier than like 11… and then I get up around 4:30-5 (I have a tendency to do some of my homework in the morning before class). Thursday night I get a little more sleep (I sleep in until maybe 8 lol) and on weekends I usually get about 8 hours. I really could use more sleep =/
