Curious to see what you dudes say, maybe for some inspiration haha. Ive just started a new job which requires me to wake at 4am so if i go to bed around 10 Im only getting 6 hours. Add on top of that the shitty sleep I'm having id be lucky to have 5, and its physically demanding work. Anyone in the same boat?

Blessed with pretty good sleep. Unless I have severe anxiety, which is pretty much always.

Physical activity, solid routines and mindfulness helps. Can't combat nightmares, though.

Normally a solid 5 hours when im working. Thats all I need/want.

With this injury though, 2 hours when the pain is bad, like 12-15 when it doesnt hurt.

My last set sleep schedule was bed between 11 and midnight, wake up at 4:30 for no reason, sleep until 7 and snooze until 7:40. Not nearly enough, and no amount of physical activity makes it any better. And why the fuck I wake up at 4:30 every night is beyond me.
Currently I'm all kinds of fucked, I didn't know you could be jetlagged for a month.

I went through a horrible month of good weed drought. Like, i could get weed but it was nowhere near as good as what i was used to. This messed my sleep pattern big time. From a 7 hour sleep i ended sleeping around 4 hours at the most. All this ended when i bought my personal hair straightener and started making my own rosin. The last 6 months have nothing but sweet dreams - 8 hour sleep sessions. I have been consistently waking up in the same stance i fell asleep.

Little old men are always telling me that it's not just how many hours of sleep you get, but which hours you sleep! I've heard that the human body is still somewhat in sync with sunrise/sunset, and that the closer you get to sleep after sunset, the better. The little old men like to say, "Every hour before midnight is worth two after!"

My last set sleep schedule was bed between 11 and midnight, wake up at 4:30 for no reason, sleep until 7 and snooze until 7:40. Not nearly enough, and no amount of physical activity makes it any better. And why the fuck I wake up at 4:30 every night is beyond me.
Currently I'm all kinds of fucked, I didn't know you could be jetlagged for a month.

I've also heard that it's natural to wake up for about an hour or two every night if you're getting to sleep at the right time. This is supposed to be the best time for fertility and stuff, as I hear it. I remember reading an article that said you shouldn't spend this time tossing and turning, but maybe read a book or something and avoid the blue light from computer/phone screens.



I find this sleep stuff so interesting, but it's really hard to separate the pseudoscience from the worthwhile stuff. I guess you just have to try everything and find out what works for you!

Weirdly enough, I was watching that Rock Adio promo yesterday and he had a decent cut of footage in it. Also, this part was in the bonus features on the DVD

I try for 8 hours. I get up at 5:55am so I try to be in bed by 9:55. Then when in bed, usually scroll through IG or FB for 20 minutes. So less than 8 hours....

Between heavy bouts of anxiety attacks to my manic depressive episodes I'm lucky to get more than 5 hours a night. I do try to get a day nap in when possible but feel completely worthless if I get more than 8 hours of sleep.

5-7 during the week depending on what's going on that day, I often take a 30-60 minute nap right after work as well. Weekends it ends up being anywhere from 8-12 depending on hangovers, plans for the day etc...

for a little while I got into a really shitty habit of going to sleep ~4am and getting maybe 3 hours every night. Took a while to force myself out of it, but once I did working at 8am wasn't anywhere near as shitty.

I have to be at work at 4am on most days which means I get up earlier than that to take a shower n get ready, anywhere between 6-8hrs n I feel good. If I do too many 6hrs though I start feelin weird over the course of time. Even an extra hour of sleep makes a huge difference.

There's a night light for the kid n the wife likes to sleep with music blaring like a fuckin rave so that's led me to wear ear plugs n something around my eyeballs. Ever since doin that I wake up less at night which makes me feel better the next day.
 
It's a 5mn skate to work, I usually take a quick shower, boil an egg for the old lady, get the diaper bag n milk ready for when she leaves, don't ever partake in breakfast which saves time (I work around food so I eat at work), then proceed to do not a god damn thing but take bong loads, contemplate life, n nerd out on SLAP for the next hour or so with no interuptions.

After havin a newborn it seems to be the only time I have to myself without my wife askin me to do 'one more thing' before I sit down (which usually turns into a few things).

So yeah, anywhere from 6-8 hours.

5-9 hours, depending on myriad factors including but not limited to stress, diet, how physically active I've been that day/week, and the greatness of my dog's desire to be little spoon.

Usually 7-9 hours, but sometimes I go through little bouts of depression, and then it's closer to 10-13

Been a shitty sleeper for years now. I just can't shut off my mind and overthink too much sometimes. A few years back when I was going through some shit I only got three or less hours of sleep a night every night for a whole summer straight. It sucked but eventually your body just adapts to it and you just get used to being tired. It's not til you finally get a good nights sleep that you realize just how tired you really were.
These days I average in about 5-6 hours a night, sometimes a little more, sometmes a lot less. For some reason my body tends to not let me sleep for more than 4-5 hours straight at a time, and that's at most too, so a lot of times I'll wake up after only few hours of sleep, toss and turn for a bit, and fall back asleep for another few hours. But yeah it usually averages out to about 5-6 hours a night total when the night is all said and done, which I don't consider bad at all. Six is the perfect amount I need to feel energized. Every now and then I can squeeze 7-8 hours out but it doesn't happen too often hah.

Oh my God, I haven't had an uninterrupted night of sleep since my five year old was born. My 3 year old daughter won't leave me alone for a longer period than 2-3 hours. There are times when I sympathize with Casey Anthony.
