    There are other studies that say sleeping is a huge factor in the aging process and general health. Most people don't get enough sleep... If you wake up to an alarm, you obviously haven't slept enough... 5 days out of 7 an alarm wakes me up... :biggrin_25510:

    The alarm wakes me about once every 3 months. I usually only sleep about 5 hours. I wake up around 5 am every day.

    I agree, on some mornings i wake up on my own, those days i usually feel GREAT all day long, some days i'll just sleep right through the alarm.. I try getting to bed around the same time each night but i guess it just depends on the actual quality of sleep that im getting.. Not sure. In most cases i slept better in my truck than i did in my bed at home!

    How so?

    You do not have to sleep the whole time.

    Believe me, I know some that do sleep that long and have thought they were supposed to be when they were on break.
