"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
I really try to get at least 8 hours a night, especially since it does affect weight loss, and have managed to do so--more or less. I've been tracking it. I think that the regular exercise I've been doing since starting SparkPeople last September helps a lot....
6-7 but I usually wake up throughout the night to change positions because of arthritis pain. During my younger years, I averaged 8-9 hours nightly. I miss those days. During the work week, I usually try to nap for 30- 40 minutes.

Weeknights about 6-1/2, give or take a few minutes on any given night. It's really not enough but I've learned to take a power nap of 20-30 minutes sitting up in my chair at my desk at work. At 66 I'm the oldest person in our small company of 30 and my coworkers have learned that I can do the work of a 40 year old in the afternoon if I get my nap.
Weekends I get close to 8 but still find myself tired in the afternoon, although I can manage without the nap.
If I ever get to retire maybe I can catch up . . . yeah, right.
Not enough for me... I go to bed early enough, but end up awake around 2 am, and lay there for quite some time. Then up by no later than 5 during the week to work out before I go to work. A short story made long... about 6 or so hours!!!

sleep, at night? AAAHhhahahahahahahahahaha... seriously... sleep and I argue all the time! It usually wins ... worst sleep destroyer: falling asleep on the couch for 2 or 3 hours in the evening and then up most of the night Or all night).
be authentically you... it's journey, not a one day hike.
