I'm like you Goddess, I need 8, but dislike going to bed at a reasonable hour and function on 5 or 6. If only someone forced me to bed like I do my kids! I'm working on it and most often now I'm getting 7.
I function best on 6-7 hours of sleep a night. I can function on 5 but I get tired in the middle of the day. Increasing our fitness makes important to get the correct sleep. Mike

I have found that rest is a key ingredient to loss and better health. My body would like me to think that I should stay up... it's lying. 8-ish hours is closer to what it needs. I found some great music to fall asleep to and got a new bed and now I can go to bed at a decent hour and get up when I need to fully rested. Forcing sleep has been worth it!
how many people out there feel that you are actually getting enough rest? I dislike going to bed at a reasonable hour and can actually function on 5 - 6 hours of sleep (although it is a struggle). Anyone else with this "problem"? How does it affect you? Any strategies?
