In brief: 7 hrs

You need 7 hrs of uninterrupted sleep on average.
Pick a time when you can consistently go to bed, maybe around 9 am.

In brief: 7.7 hours

Studies show that on average you need at least 7.
7 hours of sleep. I would recommend trying to get your sleep right before you go to work, just as if you were sleeping at night and getting up in the morning to go to work.
