Do not think lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not think lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." A drop at a time is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

well it is not 5, nor really 4 or less, as it is 4h and 30 min
it can get down to 4 hours but I'm not steady in it yet.

My sleeping varies greatly each night. I sleep 2-3 hrs on two nights, 5-7 hrs on 2 other nights, and 10-12 hrs on my days off.

So it would be misleading if I gave you the average hours, it doesn't really reflect my sleeping habits.

Usually 5 or 6, sometimes a little more.

Mostly I go to bed at 01:00 AM and get up between 06:00 AM and 07:00 AM.

I try to sleep at least eight hours each night. Sometimes that winds up being seven or so. Six hours or less, and I feel much weaker throughout my day. Earlier this summer, when school first let out, I was sleeping ten to twelve hours every night, but I got tired of wasting half of my day sleeping. And I've become much more focused on Dhamma practice, and I know the Buddha discouraged excessive indulgence in sleep.

With persistence aroused for the highest goal's attainment, with mind unsmeared, not lazy in action, firm in effort, with steadfastness & strength arisen, wander alone like a rhinoceros.

Not neglecting seclusion, absorption, constantly living the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, comprehending the danger in states of becoming, wander alone like a rhinoceros.

When I was doing my PhD I slept about 6 hours per night, but now I'm doing a very physical job at stupid hours so I tend to sleep much longer now, maybe 9 or more hours.

I'm rather hoping when I begin teacher training my sleep duration will diminish again.

Lately, I have been having difficulty getting to sleep. The other night I slept six hours, four hours the night before last, and last night I couldn't sleep at all. I know correlation does not mean causation, but can anyone comment on whether or not meditation practice (specifically, anapanasati for 45 minutes 2-3 times a day) can cause sleep difficulties? I don't feel as bad as I normally feel when sleep deprived.

Regards,
Eric
