    A new study showed that people that got LESS THAN 8 hours of sleep (about 6.5 - 7 hrs) actually had a LOWER mortality rate than people that slept 8 hours a day...

    So you may live longer if you sleep less... heh

The semester I took P Chem lab will alone add an extra year to my life. During that semester, there was one night a week that I didn't even get to sleep! I was happy when summer arrived!

    For the people that sleep less than 6 hours per day, do you workout or weightlift.

    Just wondered.

    Hey AK,
    I've found that after strenuous workouts or weightlifting you have to get at least 6 hrs of sleep to make sure muscle soreness disappears in 2 nights or so, and you're ready to go again. If I get less than 6 hrs sleep (finals weeks, etc), I have no energy for a strenuous workout and I have to settle for a half ass "keep fit" session. :)

    I'm ok for a few weeks on 3.5 hours of sleep per night. I'm ok for a few days at 1-2 hrs. and I can survive long term on like 5 hours...

    Actually, college has INCREASED the amount of sleep I get a night. But that probably also has something to do with my involvement in athletics. I don't know if physiological changes happen between the ages of 18 and 22, but man... I can't do the 3 hr. sleep thing anymore. When I was a frosh, I pulled all-nighters left and right. Now, I go to bed by midnight unless I have crew the next morning, at which point I try to go to bed at 10 pm. Gotta get at least 6 hours, and even then I'm not happy.
