Now I've been wondering this since I started my job. How long is enough sleep? 🤔 I'm 19 years old and I've always searched up how long of sleep I should get and it always says 7/9 hours sleep! I try my best to get 8 hours and a bit.

I work 10 hour shifts 4 days a week (7:30am - 6pm) at a private nursery and I'm nackered by 5pm. I've always wondered if getting just under 8hrs sleep is bad or not. I know it depends on the person but.... What do you think? 🤔

under 8 hours of sleep is fine for a reasonable minority of people who can have a productive day without needing or wanting more

Depends, I used to sleep in on weekends. But now I force myself to get up at 8 on weekends so 8 hours every day. Although when I have exams coming up I sleep 5-6 hours

Eight hours is recommded, but does anyone actually sleep for that long? In all likelihood, people sleep for less, at least I do.

It is discussion for years. I read that it is better 7-8 then 6. Some investigations were.

I work 7:00am to 7:30pm shifts and I seem to be managing pretty well with my current sleep routine. I always get 8 hours and allow 30 minutes on top to actually fall asleep so those 8 hours are good quality, deep sleep which is the most energising!
