    I generally go to sleep between 9:30 and 10pm and wake up around 6:30. I guess that is 8.5 to 9 hours of sleep. If I do not get that much sleep I morph into a very, very mean cranky person.

    Ever since I started CF and adjusted my diet, I just basically lay down, and fall asleep, then wake up the next morning. Very sound sleep, except for one day a month when I end up with insomnia which is I think related to hormones.

    Pretty much this. Bed between 10-11pm, up at 3am. On my weekend one day I sleep in until 5am; the other day I sleep in until 8, though I may stay up later on weekends.

About 1-2x/week I take an hour nap during my lunch. I am never dragging ass or feeling tired while working or playing though. Its just how my body works I suppose.
    How's that impact your muscle recovery on work out days?

    Average 6hr 50 min per night for the past 13.3 weeks according to Sleep Cycle.

    I know I feel horrible when I get less than 6, and feel amazing after 7:30

    I average ten solid hours a day with a 16 hour nap to go back from nights to days, but with baby and other stuff, it's been less lately. More like 8 or nine, and I feel terrible.

    I used to love sleeping in, but recently during the week I'm up at 6 to get to work, and 7:30am on weekends because that's when the dog gets up, no matter how late we stay up. And now with a puppy, I am sometimes up at 2:30, or 4:30, or 5:30 at which point I just stay up. So generally I try for 7 hours even though I don't feel fully rested. Can't seem to go to sleep earlier than 10:30, no napping. Sleep is the biggest primal hurdle for me.

    I try to sleep at the same time every day even though I have to get up by different times. The only exception is when I go out and then it might be me coming home at 4 or 5am... But those nights are rare. I still get up at 7 or 8 and take a nap later; my body just wakes up at around 7am now.

    Doesn't matter what I do the night before, my eyes click open by 630. I physically can't stay in bed past that.

    Wow guys I'm struck by how early a lot of people seem to be rising? Is this a natural thing or a work thing? I tend to go to bed about 11.30 and wake at 7am so getting aroundabout 7 hours a night once I get to sleep, but I have huuuge trouble getting out of bed! I'm UK based and in Scotland so not sure if it's just the fact the clocks went back and the weather is getting cold, or whether I need to address another underlying issue. Either way, it's a big struggle to get out from under the warm snuggly duvet! I went through a phase of trying to get to bed early and rise early, but I'm currently writing a phd thesis and find the quiet evenings the most productive time for me.

    Oh Lspoor, if I could, I'd sleep in until 8 or 9... I have to be at work at 7:30 and on weekends my dog wakes up at 7:30, so wakeup time is out of my hands, and I'm sure most of these other commenters as well!
