How many hours do you sleep over the night /fit/ ?

Do you ever take a nap during the day?
>>
8-10 hours
>>
8 hours

If I sleep more, I am insanely tired, much more tired than if I didn't sleep enough.
>>
i do 5-6 a night and a 30-60min nap after work
>>
Either 7.5 or 9 hours, so I can maximize REM time.

I sleep most effectively during naturally dark hours of the day, so I try to sleep early and wake early whenever I have the opportunity.

When I get into my later 20s, I expect I'll need only 6 or 7.5.

This.
>woke up more tired than before going to sleep
>why the fuck i even went to bed

>doze off for 30-40 minutes
>feel energetic and well rested
>>
6 hours of broken sleep every night due to a chronic condition that leaves me unable to sleep properly
>>
between 7-8 on weeknights, 9 on weekends

never nap
>>
Really depends, my sleeping pattern is really messed up.
Last night i slept just 2 and a half hours and it was enough. Sometimes i sleep 10 hours and i feel i could do 10 more...
>>
7-8 hours

never nap because it breaks the cycle
>>
>>35502342

I never had problems with that just don't overdo that afternoon nap. 30 minutes or 60 when i am really tired is enough for me.
>>
6 hours. No napping
I'm prescribed Provigil
It crazy how much more I can get done in a day with those extra two hours, it really adds up.

Also people who nap tend to die younger

>>
Honestly sleep is my bane I can almost never sleep enough I always sleep 6 hours maybe on a good day 7 days I still can do my 1.5/3/4/5 and improving but I still feel like I need more sleep.
>>
I prefer 8 hours of normal undisturbed sleep, but lately it's been only 5-6 and maybe a nap during the day
>>
>>35502444

well i cant fight those trips...

8 hours. Nothing better than taking a hot shower after an intense workout. Laying down on your freshly washed sheets after coming out all steamy.

It is blisss desu~
>>
anyone doing alternative sleep cycles here ?
>>
If you are sleeping at dawn (at 6) but you still sleep for 8 - 9 hours, will it have any negative impact on your body?
>>
What do you guys suggest to someone who has uni at night two days in a row and than the next day super early. I just can not fall asleep after uni nights, on those days my mind wanders around and thinks about the stuff I learned that night.
in4fit for just meditate bro
>>
>>35502742

Well over some time probably yes. I know guys working night shift - as guards,bouncers,truck drivers and they told me after a while they started losing appetite and getting irritated by anything.
>>
>>35501989

8 hours minimum
half an hour siesta if I feel cozy after a wank

I'm a naval aviator, so 8 hours is minimum.
>>
Too bad Chloe is a third wave feminist queer or else she'd be top tier. It makes her b/g scenes even better though
>>
during school, 8-9
during break like now, about 12
feels good
>>
>>35502075
>Either 7.5 or 9 hours, so I can maximize REM time.
Yeah same here, and when I only had 7.5 hours of sleep and feel tired, I try to take another nap during the day.
>>
>>35502027
interfere with any gains?
>>
>>35502306
2.5 hours is never enough for your muscles/brain to fully recover you retard.

2 to 7 hours.
>>
usually 8-9 sometimes 10 all my classes are afternoon and I never put alarm clock so it is what it is.
>>
>>35502865
literally lay in bed just thinking only about breathing, and whenever your mind trys to shift to whatever it is you are worrying about, go back to breathing immediately. Eventually I get bored and sleep that way.
>>
>>35503083

well what the fuck. i woke up with my eyes wide open, and cant get to sleep again just rolling around in bed. should i knock myself out when waking up too early?
>>
>>35503182
Sometimes that shit happens. If it's like a once a month thing it's probably not a problem, just go to sleep early (if you feel tired earlier than usual) that day, or if you get tired and it's still night, go back to sleep.
>>
I get 4-6 hours tbqh, sleep like 9 on the weekend though.
>>
Sleep is important as fuck, specially if you are lifting - it raises your natural growth hormone production.
So if you gaming or watching tv trough the night - say goodbye to your gainz.
>>
I haven't slept properly in over a month that I can remember, I have restless nights despite getting to sleep just fine and wake up drowsey and don't have as much energy throughout the day. What do fit?

>>35503178
This, works great. Just keep your mind clear of thoughts.
>>
>>35503268

Try asking your doctor for diazepam. It will calm you down (even 2mg), and its not addictive.
Started sleeping like a baby whole night long and i dont feel tired in the morning.

>Extremely light sleeper
>Takes 20 minutes to actual fall asleep
>>
8 hours, straight out, heavy.
An ex girlfriend was a restless sleeper, and I eventually learnt to sleep through her fidgeting or knocking me.

Later, I used this ability to sleep heavy to sleep on journeys to work, in a car, windows down, full speed on the highway (not driving), which only made my ability to sleep stronger.

My flatmate once tried to wake me up by punching me in the balls after shaking my leg repeatedly. I woke up slowly and didn't even realise he had until he told me.
>>
Usually 6.5 hours, sometimes 8 if I have nothing to do.
I don't understand it at times though
>try to sleep at 10pm
Doesn't happen
>give up and decide to take a dose of ec stack to keep me awake to get some more shit done
I'm sleeping like a baby 45 minutes later
Ever fucking time
Ps
>>
>>35503344
Why do you take an EC stack if you know you'll fall asleep anyway?
>>
>>35501989
4 or 5
>>
>>35501989
>tfw probably have delayed sleep phase syndrome
>Don't feel tired until at least 12 AM, sometimes later, no matter how early I get up and even if I work out hard during the day
>tfw if I fall asleep early (10 PM) my body just treats it as a nap and wakes me up at 12, wide awake
>tfw I have a job I have to get up at 6:30AM for
>>
>>35503358

If i understood correctly EC stack MAKES him sleep.

5-8 hours during weekdays, because I'm a retard. I know I should go sleep earlier, but I just cant fal asleep. I'll try to drink a lot of water and that usually helps me be awake during the day, I'll be crashing after the gym.

If I get minimal sleep I'll fall asleep in class.
>>
>>35501989

5-8 max. Unfortunately most of the time it's around 5. Working/School/Gym and insomnia is a hell of a mix.
>>
>>35501989
8 hours while on break.
6-7 at college.
>>
>>35501989
12-14
>>
>>35503565

>tfw Ephedrine makes me tired as shit and have fever dreams

Haven't been taking it with caffeine, been using it for asthma though
>>
>>35501989
10hours when possible, its when I feel refreshed and ready

when I have schoo(not underage, im finishing it) I only sleep between 7-8 hours and feel like garbage
feels bad going from 8am to 5pm in school and then having to do boxing and then eating so I got no time for anything

Breathing meditation doesn't make me tired, for me it's something more like a warm feeling haha
>>
>tfw racing thoughts and crippling insomnia
The ambien Jew has been a lifesaver but I think it's starting to fuck with my memory
