How much sleep do you need?
Not how much do you get, how much do you NEED to feel good?
I hate to admit this, but I think I need about 9 hours a day to feel good. I NEVER get 9 hours of straight, uninterrupted sleep, but it seems 9 hours total is my prescription for feeling energized.
My husband probably gets about 6 hours per night, (if he's lucky, he gets up REALLY early). He sleeps soundly that entire 6 hours. (I know because I see him sawing logs while I'm up dealing with nightmares, or bathroom emergencies at 2 am!)
How about you?
(I just had a flashback to the newborn years, nursing every two hours, no sleep...oh the HORRORS!) But those little infants are so dang cute!!
