Just because you're able to operate on seven hours of sleep doesn't mean you wouldn't feel a lot better and get more done if you spent an extra hour or two in bed. For every age group, the amount of sleep required is different. Babies 16 hours, 3-12 years 10 hours, 13-18 years 10 hours, 19-55 years 8 hours, over 65, 6 hours.

REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. We can only dream about faces we have already seen, whether we actively remember them or not. Within 5 minutes of waking up, 50% of your dream is forgotten. Within 10 minutes 90% is gone.
