How much sleep do you need?Page 1 of 1    
The typical 8 hours is good for me. But it doesn't always work like that. If I get less sleep when I'm working I find I need a day to relax and recharge batteries.

For me it's not so much when I get to sleep as to what time I wake up. I can't seem to handle the contstant 6.00 am wake up's that when I need a day to relax and recharge. 8.00 am is a good wake up for me that keeps me going all day and well into the evening.

I do have broken sleep but I dont have any problems getting back to sleep. I loooveeee my sleep and my bed.

chrissy try buying some really nice sheets and a beautiful quilt or bedcover. Redocorate with nice pillows and decorations, you don't need a lot of money to do that. I have found that since I moved house and redocorated my bedroom, I just love walking into it and when I lay in my bed it's like heaven now. It's my own private little space where it's all about me.

Chrissy, my mother is like that.. no matter what always wakes up at the same time in the morning. hmmmm maybe some other poster can offer some better advice.

If ever I do wake up in the middle of the night and cannot go back to sleep which is rare, I find a glass of milk or milk and cereal normally sends me off to sleep.

If you are okay in the morning and during the day, maybe you don't need the sleep but if it is interfering with your work, try getting to sleep a bit later. This is such bad advice.. lol.. maybe someone in the same position can offer better advice.

i love my bedroom too ... always brings a smile to my face..

Try meditation? not like finding your spritual core or whatever, but before you go to be take breaths in through or nose for 4-5 seconds and use your stomach muscles to breath out for 12-14 seconds try that for 15 min just before u go to sleep every night. :)

I need heaps of sleep.... more than is normal probably... you know the phrase:

"I'm good in bed, I can sleep for days" I believe it was coined for me.

But Chrissy, just like you i have those wakeful nights... try magnesium... it is a muscle relaxant and assists regular blood flow (apparently). It helps to relieve the stress of work issues that I carry in my body and both my doctor and osteopath have recommended it for those middle of the night wake up things... (maybe google it... cause I'm too lazy to type everything that appears on the little bottle of my tablets here).

And if that fails... down a few glasses of red just before bed good nights sleep is sure to follow.

Well personally Ifunction on 3-4 hrs a day and have done so for over 20 yrs
and any longer I suffer migraines all day

Some people can finction on minimum hrs others need a full 10-12 hrs to recharge the system

When your body needs sleep it will take it

Im afraid i cant give you a cure for your insomnia if I had one for myself I would be rich

It may be that thats all you really need and yor body wants you to party some more

best of luck regards
