I generally sleep 5 1/2 to 6 hours a night with anywhere between 5 and 10 times restless. It is usually between 15 and 30 minutes. I would say you are pretty high and that's probably why you are so tired during the day.

My sleeping habits are improving. Try turning the clock around so you can't see it, that has helped me.

I find I have pretty poor sleep habits. I average 4-5 hours of 'sleep' a night, with many restless periods(5 to 20 times) even though I try to get eight hours in. Sometimes I'm tired during the day, sometimes I'm not. I just figured my body can function on that amount of sleep at this stage of my life.

Thanks so much that is what I am wondering when should you get it looked into? I wanted to see what others had for numbers. I did go an extended period of time not using my fitbit flex but decided to try again and don't find my sleep any different with it on or off! I wish I did! lol
thanks for the tips!

I got my Fitbit mainly to track my sleeping. I have a hard time going to sleep and wake up a lot. I also take sleep meds. Well, I used it for about 3 months and then....dropped it in the toilet while on vacation!! It was amazing how fast it was gone!!!
I am sleeping better now. Not sure if it is behavior changes or not I cut my sleeping pill in half and take it with a cup of Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time tea. Then I got to bed within 10 minutes. I am going to sleep very quickly. And pretty much staying asleep. Of course I do walk 30 minutes 2x a day too.
When I used my Fitbit, I found that I woke up between 15-20 times a night. Sounds like you might need to do a sleep study if you are also sleepy during the day. Not sleeping is terrible!

Whether I think I can or I think I can't, I am right.
