My 11 month old requires a great deal of attention during the sleeping hours. In spite of that, I usually feel well rested during the day after spending 8 hrs sleeping/taking care of baby.

No Nap

When working, I woke up tired. Since retiring I sleep well, wake up refreshed without an alarm at 5-5:30 AM and am on the go all day.

Re: Sleep, Age, and Napping

47, 80, rarely nap.

When I worked full time, I only slept about 5 hours a night. I was exhausted every afternoon. After I reduced my hours to half time, for about 6 months I took a two hour nap every afternoon and slept like the dead. Now I get 8-9 hours of sleep per night, I'm rarely tired and I don't nap much.

I snore too. Had the blood oxygenation test, which ruled out sleep apnea. I am a vivid and complex dreamer and a light sleeper, so I wake often. Also menopause and a tiny bladder contribute to some of it. But I'm pretty satisfied with the way my sleep life is going.

sleep like a log (I go to bed early and get up early)
I don't nap but I can't wait until I do!

No

Normally, I rate my sleep quality at 95+ but it has gone down a bit since I am selling my house and I'm a bit anxious about my unplanned future.
I suspect after I close on the house and have a clearer vision of the future, I'll get back to my normal sleep patterns.

1. 34
2. 85
3. No

>TromboneAl, if you're looking for info on this, "we" already know a lot. Quality of sleep on average tends to get worse as you age, and napping is generally not a good thing unless its limited to short durations, such as 15 minutes. Of course i'm talking about averages here. Great diet and exercise, and avoiding certain foods before bedtime go a long way towards bucking the averages.

Re: Sleep, Age, and Napping

1. What is your Age? 53

2. How do you rate the general quality of your sleep (0=Terrible, bad insomnia every night, 100=great, always wake up refreshed and rested). 0

3. Do you usually take a nap during the day? Not with insomnia

I have apnea and also have a CPAP machine. I do not do naps or I would sleep even less at night. Lunesta has helped a lot but I would like to get off the pills to sleep more than a few hours a night. Gets old after 15 years of so.
