    I have found that overall I do better if I only sleep for 5-6 hours a night instead of 8+. The longer I sleep, the worse I am the next day.

    Is this the same for everyone else?

    Yes, I find that as well. Also the quality of my sleep is better if I sleep those 5-6hrs during a certain time in the day. For instance I get the absolute-best-most refreshing-sleep without using a sleepaid from about 9am-3pm. But yes, if I try sleeping for more than 7-8hrs I experience worse fatigue and joint aches and pains, especially in the hips.

    Hi, i have heard of this with others people before. For me i need 8-9 to be able to function. If i only slept 5-6 hours a night i would go downhill pretty fast.

    Thankfully, I get 10 hours. After getting my hormones all balanced and getting the vit. d, seratonin up etc, I sleep so well now. You heal when you sleep so I need all I can get.
