On average, how many hours of sleep do you get each night? Is this too much sleep

I get about 8 during the week but on weekends I get about 10 hours of sleep. I'm 25 and never slept the day away like this when I was younger but now I always seem so tired. I need lots of sleep but I hear that it is bad to get too much sleep. How much do you get? Do you feel like you need more than others?

  • I love sleep and especially cat naps on the weekends, if I'm lucky. Umm...I usually get close to 8 hours during the work week and 8-9 on the weekends. I found that after having my second child I tend to need more sleep. Just listen to your body and get the amount you want! Everyone's different...my dh needs less than me.

  • I only get eight hours when I'm seriously ill. More than six makes me dysfunctional.

  • liltymesmom, my hubby needs less than me too. Thats why I can normally sleep more on the weekend while he watches the baby:)

  • I get about 6 hours and take no naps. If I sleep longer than that, I feel like crap.
