A NEW STUDY has claimed to offer a definitive amount of the time you should sleep every night.

The verdict from researchers at the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Centre in Athens is between six and eight hours.

They found that much less than six hours, and anything more than eight, puts you at a significant higher risk of heart of heart trouble.

So, today we’re asking you: How much sleep do you usually get every night?

Poll Results:

6-7 hours (9128)
8-9 hours (2854)
< 5 hours (2162)
> 10 hours (220)
Not sure (135)
