8 tends to work but if I'm starting to feel tired during the week, for whatever reason, I have to take precauations and sleep a bit more to stave of any potential migraine.

When I was younger, I've been known to go to bed at gone 3am and get up for work at just after 6am and be fine; but those days are long gone, for my system anyway.

I do pretty well on 6 to 7 hours of sleep each night and a 1/2 hour nap in the afternoons. I need the naps because my back injury will not let me sleep longer than 7 hours.

For me it's not so much the amount of sleep that matters, but how I eat. If I eat a lot of junk the day before, I wake up feeling fatigued even with good sleep.

Man, I envy most of you. Sleep has always been a struggle for me. 5 to 6 with an occasional 7. Not as bad as a few years ago when I was on some heavy duty anti anxiety and sedatives, back then even with the meds 4 to 5 was a good night.

Lifting helps, and with my shoulder injury sleep has been hard to come by. Looking forward to starting back up with lifting this weekend.

I get probably 4-5. My problem is that I just don't go to bed. I stay up and watch TV, or post on the MAB forum. I know I need more. It would help with a number of issues.

leefarley, it has been my experience that ZMA does work. You've got to get to bed though. It does no good to take it at 1:00 a.m. then go to bed and wake up at 6:00. You've got to get to sleep and give your body a chance to go through a couple of natural sleep cycles. Lately I've had success with melatonin and valerian, but there again, you've got to get to bed and let it work.

9 hours is good for me. I am very active and need lots of sleep to recover.

Hi lzaar,
It is recommended to sleep for 7/8 hours in a day as it improves brain function, memory and sharpen our attention. It sooth stress and depression and prevent from cardiovascular disease. Do create a sleep schedule and sleep and rise early to lead healthy lifestyle.
