    Default how many hours sleep do you get?

    So I'm trying to come up with a really disciplined daily routine to fit in everything. I am crazy busy so time mangement is crucial to me. I'm trying to work out what time I need to wake each day to fit everything in and it's getting earlier and earlier. Anyway it got me thinking how many hours sleep do you generally get each night? I don't want to burn myself out from lack of sleep 😳

    I attempt to get 8 hours (approx 10pm-6pm) but am still getting up to my just turned 1 year old multiple times per night so I think I'm getting about 5 hrs a night. I think each person requires varying amounts. I'm struggling on 5hrs a night but I know this is enough for others

    I get about 5 ... I think I need more but I just can't fall asleep. My boys sleep really well though. 8 I think would be ideal.

    when I am functioning well around 5-6 hours per night but using very strict sleep hygiene practices (otherwise insomnia sets in) ATM because I am not overly well a good night = 2 hours broken sleep but in past the week have managed around 10 hours total

    About 6-7 hours, with one toddler and studying full time. (I go to bed around 11.30pm, he's up for the day around 6am).

    Pre-baby I could barely function without 8-10 hours, I can't believe how much I've adjusted.

    About 7.5 hours usually, however I'm a light sleeper so my quality of sleep is sometimes not all that great.

    Around 6 hrs per night. When I am asleep though,I am deeply asleep (according to my fitbit!), so I think I get quality sleep.

    About 8-10 depends when my 3month old wakes up
    Prior to having him I'd need at least 10 hours a night
