    No lately I get about 3, 4 and at times 9.

    I go to sleep late from playing ps3 with the wife then wake up around 3am to go drive an hour and go hiking once a week. Wake up at 4am to go jog 6 miles, hit gym, get breakfast, go home shower then take a nap before work at ten am. Other days I go to bed at 8 and sleep till about 7 or 8

    I think it depends on what your motivated to do and accomplish as to how your body will react. There are guys 50 years old out jogging early and faster then I so that's my thought on it. Here is to staying healthy my friend

    Side not my goals and why I wake up early
    ten half marathons this year
    one full marathon
    Triathlon next year
    be able to do a hundred dips nonstop and 50 pull ups without kipping or stopping

    Maybe make some goals that require you to get out of bed and take action to accomplish.

    I get 6, but it takes me like an hour to fall asleep (f'in anxiety), but when I wake up I usually go back to bed for an hour after I eat breakfast.

    Your body probably just needs 8 hours of sleep... That's not a bad thing btw. I wish I could sleep for 8 hours straight.

    Nope. ~5 hours is perfect for me. There is another thread about sleeping habits of forum members: How many hours do you sleep?

    As long as I have 6 I am fine but studies show there are actually short and long sleepers, which is why some people are considered "morning people" and others hate the morning lol.
