Hi guys!
How much sleep do you need to have enough energy for the day?
Specially interested about the daily sporting coders.

    Between 6 and 8 hours. Below that i'm still "operational", but my performance suffers a great deal.

    Hello there.

    I sleep for somewhere between 4-6 hours and drink an unhealthy amount of energy drinks

    About 7 hours. Going to bed around 23:30 - 23:45 and getting up around 7 in the morning.

    I get 6 in the week and 8-9 on weekends.
    Not enough energy but i'm functional.

    @thmnmlst no, 3-4 hours is kind of rare. Majority of people needs at least 6 hours. You may be a young dev, not taking enough care. But in the longer run, lack of sleep is going to cost badly

    Between seven and eight and a half is usually best for me. It depends on how/where I sleep, though.

    @thmnmlst It is sounds brutal. I am doing karate and going to gym so every day I have very intense 1 and a half hour training. My body is usually sore so I need a mininum 8 hour of sleep but it would be better if i could keep up with less sleep.. When i am not sleeping enough i could sleep sitting at my desk. :D

    On ideal days when i have no obligation to wake up early in the morning i sleep 5 to 6 hours and in normal days when i have to wake early and stuf i sleep 4 to 5 hours at least i try, i have no problem with 5 hours of sleep, i'm convinced that 5 hours of sleep is good enough to stay happy all the day, after work / studying the whole day i go to gym or sport for 2 to 3 hours and code during late night without any kind of regrets... Sleep is only needed when the body force you to unless it does it's no need... I think i hate sleeping....

    I do crossfit for about 4-5 times a week, and I definitely need about 8 hours sleep for my body to recover. I avoid eating any carbs for lunch so I don't slack in performance.

    7 - 8. I fitness 3 times a week and drink like 4 cups of coffee a day. I do have a lot of energy :D

    I think it depends a lot on how old you are. For me, ~5 hours is enough to be somewhat productive. I can also get 3h of sleep for a month and keep going, but that results in many more hours of bad coding and fixing stupid mistakes because I wasn't maintaining enough focus.

    Also, coffee.

    Atleast 7-8 hours for me to maintain an optimum performance. If it goes down to 6 or even 5 hours, performance won't take much hit, but anything below that will result in a drastic hit on performance, I will simply linger around everywhere with sleepy face and an almost dizzy head.
    But then again, with huge energy requirements comes guaranteed performance and results 😂😉.

    I can keep normal performance for days with 4-6 hours, but eventually I have to rest 12+ hours to recover, it also depends on your routine and the food you eat.

    9 hours, but apparently that's unusual.
