It varies for me between 5-10. Usually takes an 8 hour sleep night for me to feel refreshed the next morning though.

About 6 to 6 and 1/2 hours.  That's all I've needed since my early 20's and consider myself lucky.

Love 7-8 hours when I get it. Retirement allows that to happen. When on 3rd shift 3-5

Averaging 3-4 depending on how much blow has been involved.  0 on the low end. 18 on the high end.

This out of South Africa:

"We know that sleep has a correlation to hypertension as well as obesity.

"Sleep apnoea is also an independent factor of mortality because some people do just stop breathing in their sleep”, she said.

With the increase in non-communicable diseases across the world, Scheuermaier said it was critical the country also focus on treatment of sleep disorders.

Sleep plays a role in adding to obesity and cardiac disease by regulating two hormones, leptin and ghrelin, which influence the energy balance of the body as well as appetite levels."

I usually do about 4 hours, with a nap in the evening. Are we talking uninterrupted, or in a 24 hour period?

 

I just try to make sure my evening nap is after I've arrived home, and not while driving home.
