I use SleepBot every night, which is pretty awesome. According to my history of the past two months or so, I sleep between 6 and 7 hours each night. I generally feel well-rested with that amount.

I normally get 6-8. I do best with 9-11, though. I normally play catch up on Friday and Saturday.

Most weeknights I get about 7.5 hours, and aim for closer to 9 hours on the weekends when I can. I need close to 8 hours or I'll feel crappy.

I try for between 7-8 which *should* be enough, but being woke up 2-9 million times a night makes it not work so well. (Actually the baby is generally a good sleeper but I'm bitter over the midnight, 1, 2, and 5 wake-ups last night.) And then on the nights when there are no wake ups I'm all groggy and weird from too much sleep. No winning.

If I get less than 7 hours for more than 3 days it gets pretty ugly.

I tried to use sleepbot when i first went on my meds to see if there was a marked difference between on and off them, but the app kept freezing and turning off my phone and then it only measured time but not the movement and i really wanted to see movement too. So I was bummed.

Not enough, 8 hours on average but it's rarely consistent.

Between eight and nine hours a night.

If I don't get nine hours most nights, I get migraines and feel generally yucky.

never as much as I want, but always more than most people.

Probably 7.5-9 on average during the week and 10-12 when I can sleep as much as I want. When I have a long stretch of time off, I think I average out at about 10 hours a night which leads me to believe that's what I ought to strive for... but it's just so much time out of a hectic schedule! I'm interested to try this sleepbot app...

Usually 10-12 but if I don't have any reason to get up, up to 14 isn't unheard of. I'm on meds that cause drowsiness for up to 18 hours which drives me nuts. 8+ and I'm fine but less than 8 hours and I have a very hard time waking up because of it.
