How Sleep Smart Are You?

I've heard so many things about how much sleep we need and it always seems different. If you value your sleep as much as I do then take this fun little quiz to see if you're getting as much as you should.

AWESOME! I finally got 100% on a sugar quiz! I'm glad I finally have research to back up my reasoning for going to bed early!

I know I need 8 hours.... but I work from 4am to 630pm and even though, on a good night, I'll go to sleep at 930p or 10p, it's still only 5 hours of sleep. To get the full required, I would have to go to bed IMMEDIATELY when I got home from work at 7pm... but every normal person needs to relaxing time to wind down, eat dinner and whatnot. :/

I have always needed 8-9 or even 10 hours of sleep to feel rested. Unfortunately school work means less sleep lately which makes me sleepy during classes. When I miss on sleep I try to take a nap during the day somewhere on campus so that I am not sleeping in class

I got all 3 right, but I am one of those people who is great with 5 hours of sleep. To much turns me into a mean, cynical, nasty, biting person. 5 Hours and I am perky and happy!

I am so happy to see the answer to number 3!!! When I clicked on all of the above, I was thinking I will be pissed if they say morning! I am so tired of hearing how you MUST workout in the morning.

I agree, I can't do without 7 hours, 8 is better, but I find that if I don't set an alarm, I wake up on my own after 8.5-9 hours, every time. I'm 29, so I would think that would be a little more than necessary, but I never feel more refreshed than a day when I work out and get just over 8 hours of sleep. The next day always proves to be a good one.

If I get less than 7 hours, I'm a disaster.

100%! My boyfriend had sleep apnea but got it fixed and now he doesn't snore anymore either. Yay! Is it possible to get too much sleep? I've been sleeping a lot more since my boyfriend has been away. There's been times where I'm just exhausted/bored with TV/my book/etc. and go to bed at 8PM and sleep until 7AM when I have to get up for work.
