How long do you sleep every night on school days? Because in my country, school starts at 8 a.m. so I have to get up by 6. And I have only about six hours or so of sleep. This really affects my dreaming time.
My cousin who lives in Australia gets up at about 7 am because school starts at 9 am for him. So if I were him, I would get as much as 8 hours of sleep.
I wonder if any of you sleep more than six hours a night on weekdays. Thank you!
Mahdii: That’s nice! Waking up at 7.30. Three years ago, I visited Australia and had a five-week stay at my cousins’ home. I realized every morning my cousins would wake up about 7.30 when the sky was all bright. If you sleep at just say 11 pm every night, wow, you have plenty of time to venture in your dreamworld!! So if your school starts at 9, what time does it end?
Leeh: Sounds right. I think from now onwards I’ll go to bed at 10 PM, then I’ll have more than seven hours of sleep!
I’m a mature student with 2 kids under 5 so i go to bed very early - 10pm! Can’t handle it any later! lol
But most of my LDs so far have been when my husband has given me a lie in - which would mean that at those times (with interruptions - kids etc…) i get about 9 or 10 hours sleep. You wouldn’t want to know me if i got less than 8!
It does seem fairly obvious to me though that dream work means as much sleep as possible!
I usually go to bed at 10pm and am usually awake by 7 regardless of the day of the week, on a schoolday, I’m then usually UP by 7.15 unless I’m feeling really groggy then I’ll push it a bit and stay in until 7.30 laughs
EDIT: Oh, forgot to mention School starts at 8.45, so I normally leave the house between 8.15 and 8.20
That’s really great! You have a regular sleep schedule. You must have loads of dreams! Sometimes I sleep at 11.30, sometimes 11 o’clock.
Really fun!! I went there late November. The weather at that time was a bit cool, I just loved it. And on Christmas day, it was supposed to be 40 degrees but instead it was 16 c! Absolutely freezing, I wore four layers of clothing. During the five weeks, I went horse riding, cherry picking and also visited the Melbourne city, the Enchanted Maze( this one’s really exciting!) and the animal sanctuary. It’s a nice place to live in, Australia.
Oh no, now I remember school again. Great. -.- Now I’ll never be able to LD.
I go to sleep at 9 or 10 nearly every day (Even Sunday and Saturdays) and wake up at 6.30. Every day. I don’t even need an alarm clock, becouse my body wakes up automatically (It’s really great when I try to perform WILD). So I get around 8 hours, 9 if I’m sleepy. That’s why I can’t WILD properly when it’s school. If it wasn’t, then I’d get way more LDs than now.
This has been the biggest problem for me with LDing… this is the reason i used to just work on it in the summer. However now i work even earlier than i ever went to school. So… yeah basically i am screwed
Thanks! I’ll try to have a regular sleep schedule!
You’re right. That’s what I’ve been trying to do. Unfortunately, I have some sleep problems, especially these few days. Like yesterday, I went to bed at 10.30 PM, and guess what time I finally slept? 2.02 AM. So I ended up having four and the half hours of sleep. At least I had a really cool flying dream!!So even ten hours of sleep will eventually become eight hours.
Aelyissía and R3TRO: That’s why school’s really an obstacle. Maybe the best time for LDing is probably when we work…
I used to get that ALL the time. It was terrible so I can sympathise. But, having a routine also really helps with that as well, not just the getting up and going to sleep at the same time, but having a small drink before bed and stuff like that The more you’re in a routine; the easier it is for you to switch off…
Another thing that would help with that is improving your sleep hygiene. E.g making sure you’re only using your bed for sleep, not for reading or anything else. In fact, even staying out of your bedroom can help apparently. Getting associations that your bed is for sleep and nothing else, can really help your sleep patterns.
