  • I have really gotten into the habit of going to bed early now. Im in bed by 8:30 and asleep by 9. I get up at 5:30 though. I feel better for it. I need to get at least 5 to feel human.

  • I need 8 solid hours. But, I can function on 6, somewhat, as long as there is plenty of coffee! LOL.

  • 7 hours or so and I'm good. Any less than 6 and the day is completely wasted because I will feel lousy and unmotivated and headachy.

  • 5 hours. I have horrible insomnia. If I get less than 5 for a couple of nights I start feeling bad
