I've been having difficulty making time for enough sleep, I'm getting about 6 hours/night.

How much sleep are you getting, and with a busy schedule, how do you manage to get it done?

I'm a college student with a pretty busy social life. When I'm in school and I'm studying all night and have to wake up early in the mornings, I'm lucky to get 5-6 hours. When I'm not in school and have nothing planned for the day, I'm good with about 9 hours. This weekend, I stayed out and slept for a grand total of 2 hours. Naps are my savior. Although I wouldn't call them naps when they sometimes last for 3 hours.

Its all about priorities. Sleep is very very high priority to me. I feel crappy if I get only 6 hrs, in fact I get a very specific type of headache that I can't explain but its specific to not enough sleep.

I can function on 7 but prefer 8-9. I let other things go to get it.

I get maybe 6-8..though I would LIKE 10...thing is, the amount of energy Paleo seems to give me, I just can't sleep more than the 6-8..BUT...I do make a point to stop and rest...whether it be conscious breathing in a place that I feel calm or just going for a walk in a place with nature...if Paleo won???t let me sleep (which I don???t think will last) it'll at least to help me relax and focus on simply - being???

I sleep around 6-7 hours and can't do a single bit more because I have too much energy. When I was pre-paleo, I'd sleep in all the time and still be tired even with 9 hours sleep. All these paleo gurus recommend that people get 8-9 hours but by the time the sun comes up, I'm jumping out of bed and ready to face the day. I feel great!
