    How many hours do you sleep each night?

    I have recently noticed that I feel like I'd be sleeping too much for my own good. I usually go to sleep around 1-3 AM (I know, quilte a fluid time there, can't help it) and wake up between 10AM and 12PM, leaving my sleeping time to somewhere between 7-11 hours. Quite irregular at that even, so that's not really helping either.

    I have tried to occasionally correct that, but it just falls back down to those numbers after few days anyhow.

    I'm a night owl that tends to stay up late until about 2 in the morning, so on average I get about 5 hours of sleep on the weekdays and 7-9 hours on the weekends.

    My sleeping pattern seems to be all over the place at the moment. I was like it as a kid, it sort of stabilised, and now it seems to be back to "normal". Normal for me anyways!

    I usually go to bed anywhere from 1-3am, sometimes 4, and try to wake up everyday at around 6 but often oversleep until 10-11am. Other times I feel so drained that I go to bed about 10pm and wake up at something like 10-11am.

During the day of this "all-dayer" I was severely tired and had to play some pretty adrenaline-pumping FPS to keep myself awake. I did doze off for about ten minutes on my chair though. I'm glad I was woken up by the phone.

    Then, come night time, I went to bed at 10.00PM and couldn't sleep for three hours. I was so annoyed by this after the effort fixing my sleep cycle, and it's still terrible now. It's nearly 2.30AM and I feel as if I should sleep soon. When I go to sleep before I feel very tired, often my crazy mind keeps me awake with endless thoughts.
    It seems everyone has the odd sleep cycle just like me. I get some peaceful sleep when I got to bed pretty late 3-4 am but if go to bed around say 9pm I end up waking up within 3-4 hours and cannot go back to sleep. These odd sleep cycles are usually related to worrying or stressing over your life situation.

    Crazy sleep patterns here as well. As someone that has been self-employed for most of my life, I hardly stick to a regiment like most folks. I can get by on 5-6 hours sleep when I have a tight deadline and work late nights. But I do try to get 8-9 hours sleep on most nights as I know it's unhealthy not to do so. When I sleep too long I tend not to be very productive even though I feel rested. Generally I go to bed late, around 1 - 2 AM but I try to be up by 9 - 10 AM but there are days when that doesn't happen.

    I lack what humans call a 'sleep cycle', but I always function best on a minimum of ten hours of sleep. I've had days where I can't function without more though- quite a few. But I have a few health reasons my sleep needs are so high...But I also tend to wake up paralyzed, so while I wake up at like 10AM, I might not be able to get out of bed until 10:15 while I regain my ability to move and then actually manage to do it.

    I have such terrible sleep habits. For the past few summers before this one I had a job that started in late afternoon, so I could be up until 3-4 in the morning regularly and not have to wake up until noon. Now that I have to be in at around 9-9:30 every morning I've been trying to get to bed by 2 at the latest but I usually turn in closer to 3. The weekends are better, if only because I can sleep all I want.

    I tend to sleep facing my wall or on my stomach. I have a tendency to get sleep paralysis and wake up paralyzed and unable to move for a few minutes. This is usually accompanied by hallucinations and an overwhelming sense of fear, so I've taken to sleeping on my stomach and facing the wall in order to try and limit that.

    My sleep lately isn't much different from my last post in this thread. I tend to sleep at 5-6AM. I get into these habits and I find it difficult to change it, which kind of sucks during the hotter months since when the weather is better I want to enjoy as many hours of sunlight as I can. I should probably watch some shows before going to sleep and tire myself out a bit, rather than going to sleep right after working on stuff.

    Sometimes when I wake up I find it difficult to move. I didn't think of it as sleep paralysis but it's a weird feeling, and I feel like I'm going to be sick, so I just try to calm down by heading to my sofa when I'm able to and watching some Netflix.

    I'm going to merge the "How many hours do you sleep each night?" and "Sleep" threads since they're both about the same general topic, not to mention sleep isn't a very serious topic/debate and belongs to Clyde's Bar.

    Oh, man. The escapades of my sleep processes transcend time and space. For the most part I've been consistently a night owl all my life, especially during college when I had planned afternoon classes to offset the consequences of waking up at noon, or when I worked 2nd shift for a stint in a plastics factory during the summer and didn't really get to start my social life until 11pm. You know, the good ol' days...

    Currently as a bartender, the majority of my days (not necessarily my work hours) start at noon and end at midnight - there's no set schedule in the customer service industry - but I've never been one of those guys who can get home from work and fall asleep. I need at least two hours to eat something substantial, take a shower and unwind in some way; whether it be playing the vidya (in before cringe), catching up on that anime or manga I've yet to start/finish, or in this case, browse the nexus , I need to do something other than work and be stressed over stuff out of my control.

    All this being said, I've tried almost everything to get back into a "normal" sleep schedule, ranging from taking meletonin supplements (makes me feel unrested), taking a nap in the middle of the day (can't do that due to irregular work schedules), lift weights (that worked, but I got out of the workout routine, and so did my sleep routine), moderate drinking (possible hangovers the next day are inconvenient to say the least) and starting to go to support groups to cry my insomnia away only to have my apartment burned down and end up starting a cult with a figment of my imagination bent on having people beat the crap out of each other (...seemed like a good idea at the time).

    All these methods were my attempt at telling myself "Okay, you're gonna wake up at 8:40am every day, have a light breakfast, do a 5x5 weightlifting routine, and be ready to start the day at the reasonable time of 10:30am!" The reality is this: my alarm goes off at 8:40 and by the time I button-mash the snooze and wake up at 11am, I wake up exhausted and malnourished only to find I need to pick myself up and eat on the go if I want to make it to work on time. It sucks, but it's something I've been trying to get right, in case you haven't noticed. It's all about building the dedication and motivation to execute, as with anything else.

    ...Oh yeah. My lucky number is 84. The number 84 pops up a lot in my everyday life, so I might as well embrace it.

    EDIT: 10 wong goes to the fortunate one who spots the movie reference.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.
