1 in 4 U.S. adults suffer from chronic sleep deprivation. But getting too much sleep can also be problematic:

How many hours of sleep do you get on a typical night?

Is this News? I thought it was common knowledge. Wall Street Journal scoops this "breaking news". Really?
I have obstructive sleep apnea mixed with random insomnia. I've controlled the symptoms and all is well but it really sucked for a while. I tried better time management, more sleep, dietary changes, exercise, etc. It was a long road! This may not be "breaking news" but I'm sure many have no clue what you have and your typical physician won't know how to diagnose or treat your condition unless you are conscious of the symptoms and possible root issues. Sleep studies are best if you feel sluggish or drowsy regardless of what you try. Insurance won't always cover the cost fully, if at all, but it's worth it. 8)
Who still gets 8 hours of sleep a night? Come on, not realistic. 
There's many schools of thought here. I think the common thread is that it's all about REM sleep. When sleep is interrupted, 6 hours or more won't matter much. On the flip side, sleep too much and you do more damage than good and miss out on a lot. I find that ear plugs, sleep headphones, and some light music or white noise help me get the best sleep. Different things, different results for everyone.
Most nights it is 8-9, but because I work second shift and dont usually go to bed until 2-4, I get interrupted a lot. A garage door below me opens at 7:15, a motorcycle leaves around 8:30, and I usually go to the restroom midmorning. I am usually up 10 am to 11:30 am, but I am rarely well rested
