Generally I sleep 7-7.5 hours I do occasional do 6 hrs and manage yet I like to get back to 7.5 and occasionally I sleep 8-10 when my body recognises I need more and enjoy it.

Eh, eh… If you are in balance, you actualy dont need a sleep at all… Pls, read the book “Seth speaking” from Jane Roberts, and you’ll find why is better sleep a few times for few hours, than one time eight or more hours…

KU research spoke of 1.5 hr REM cycles. Seems right for me. 6 to 7.5 hours sleep has worked well for me if I get a 15-20 min nap after lunch.
