How much sleep do you NEED?

Not how much sleep you GET...but what is your optimum amount of sleep for having a non-tired, 'good' day where you felt well rested all around?

Make sense? :P

Mine is 9 hrs. I can function on less, but if I get 9 hrs, I am having a good day (unless I am sick, but that is a whole other scenario)

  •'s been so long since I've had anything longer than 6 hours that I have no clue. The few times I've slep longer, it was because I was sick or the one night my MIL babysat. I'd probably about 9 hours as well.

  • To be perfectly refreshed, ideally, 10 hours a night, or at least 8 hours with an hour nap during the day. How often does that happen? LOL
