Wondering (concerned) about my amount of sleep

I am 68 years of age. For the longest time now I have been keeping track of the hours I sleep at night and I average about 6 to 6 and a half hours on a good night. On an extraordinary night's sleep. I might get 7 hours. Good, bad or ugly?

It looks like 6.5-7.5hrs is about the sweet spot:

Sounds like you're just about there. 30 more minutes would get you from Good to Great.
