For me it's 4 to 5 hours. I can't function when I sleep 8 hours, it's like I wasted the day. I haven't slept 8 hours since my drunken drug use party days. But on rare occasions if I get sick or something I will sleep all day long.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

I have a friend that sleeps just 5 hours, no more. And looks terrific this sob. He's very skinny, by the way.

It depends on the age of a person but still 8 hours of sleep is sufficient.

..."He ---R Buckminster Fuller--- hypothesized that we would need less sleep if we stopped to take a nap at "the first sign of fatigue." Fuller trained himself to do just that, forgoing the typical eight hours, more or less, most of us get per night.

... He found"as have many artists and researchers over the years"that "after a half-hour nap he was completely refreshed." Naps every six hours allowed him to shrink his total sleep per 24-hour period to two hours. Did he, like the 50s mad scientist, become a tragic victim of his own experiment?"...

What's 'normal' really depends on the individual. The body has a marvellous way of adjusting itself to your sleeping patterns, this is why humans can learn to function on very little sleep - even if it will eventually catch up with them and cause burnout. Overall, I'd say my ideal sleep is 1-2:AM to 7-8:AM. Sometimes I don't go to sleep until later but that's usually on a weekend these days (although it alternates).

There was a point where I wouldn't sleep until 4-6 in the morning, then I'd have to get ready for school within a couple of hours. Unfortunately, I've always been a night owl. In terms of those aged 65+, in my opinion, they should get more than adults aged 26-64. Most seniors (say 70+) tend to get tired in the afternoons, on average they also go to bed earlier and are less likely to experience insomnia, so I'm presuming most do (and they certainly should) get more sleep than young-to-middle aged adults. The only exceptions to this that I've ever observed are my own grandparents, lol. They could stay awake until 2:AM and still get up at 7:AM.

Sleep is the most important for health and well-being. Three is recommended sleep range for every age group. If you did not sleep well then you are not well prepared for the day ahead.

It really depends on the person. You can't really say "what's healthy" when you don't know

Sleep is the most important factor in our daily routine. You must take a proper sleep as mentioned above in order to be more energetic further.
