    Wish I could live on six, but I need 8 hours one way or another. Still I have no problem falling asleep. I could sleep on the floor of Grand Central if I had to. Sad thing is the people who can't get to sleep are generally in most need of it, as they are overwhelmed by their waking life. But if ever I do find myself thinking too much to fall asleep, mediation will do the trick, which should illustrate how terrible of a meditator I am. :D

    Even when I was a teen. 6 hours is all I needed. If I fall asleep at 9pm. I'm up at 3am. If I fall sleep at 11pm. I'm up at 5am. Even if I pull an all nighter the night before. If also my sleep is broken up. Like if I slept for 2 hours earlier in the evening. Then go to sleep again at 1am. I'm up at 5am.

    I am still a ten hours sleeper.
    I can manage on 8.
    I used to sleep walk, when I drank too much Vodka.
    I have stories on that.

    Sleeping 10 hours every night is not a sign of optimal health. Do you think it might be a good idea to talk to your GP and maybe get a blood and urine test? I had one done when I came back from the UK a couple of years ago. I came down with Deep Vein Thrombosis going over. They test for iron , B12, folate and a few other things.

    I will follow your advice.
    I have not had a blood test for ages.
    Thank you.

    It's vital to do blood work annually especially when you get older.

    I fixed my vitamin D deficiency by taking supplements and it has actually improved my energy and sleep.

    It also helps that I don't smoke everyday anymore. Speaking of that. I'll be sparking up my bowl soon :D

    I find cannabis is a great cure for insomnia.
