At what time do you sleep and wake up?

Recommended Posts

I have a pretty disturbed schedule of sleeping and waking up, I am curious what everyone else is up to. I sleep between 12pm (is 12'o click midnight AM or PM?) to 3am and wake up between 10 to 12 in morning.

I have to be pretty consistent everyday with my day job and all. So I'm usually awake by 7:15 AM and then I turn in a little after 10 PM. On weekends I'll wake up closer to 9 or 10 and go to sleep closer to 11. And some days it just depends on how "into" programming I am. Once I get deep into a task, it can be hard for me to stop.

Generally, I sleep no later than 11. I'm usually out by 10, 10:30 though. I'm usually up pretty early, like 7:30. I'm not much of a night owl, never have been really. Plus for my day job, I do need to get in during the mornings (like 9 or so), so I need to have my sleep, otherwise I just can't function. 

I'm told that I'm actually an anomaly for people my age, since I sleep early and get up early. *shrug*

I sleep just fine. It all boils down to what you eat and an imbalance of nutrients. This affects behavior, sleep, mood, causes anxiety, etc. My suggestion - get a crockpot and throw in a whole bunch of vegetables, chicken, etc and eat. You'll feel better everyday!

I've gotten pretty regular in the last few years.  Go to bed at 11:00, get up at 6:00.  I used to be fairly irregular, both in times I'd got to bed and get up, and how much sleep on any given night I'd get.

As a artist I "volunteer" a lot of extra hours, so I have a very irregular sleeping hours.

 

After a job where I had to do multiple days of 24 hour work shifts, with 6 hours of sleep in between each, I had swelling and stomach pains.

Some of my organs where beginning to pack up. It turns out that lots of coffee, only fast food and little sleep is bad for your heart and kidneys.

 

So now it doesn't matter what time I wake, I always force my self to go to sleep in 16 hours.

Food is king. The kind of food you put into your body seems to determine your overall mood and even things like motivation from what I have found. Eat well - stay motivated, young, and happy. Get a slow cooker - easy way to cook and healthy!

Currently I go to bed around 3 AM and get up around 9:20 AM.

It used to be worse (going to bed later, getting up at the same time), but it's gradually getting better. Generally, my sleeping (+ energy levels + mood) is way better when I exercise. Excepting a few weeks rest time + vacation time, I've been doing fairly hardcore exercise 5-7 days a week for soon 4 months.

Ideally I'd go to bed around midnight - 1AM and get up around 7-8 AM -- I'm getting there!

Considering that my own time is mostly around 1-3 AM, there is a clear pattern forming.

I think it's safe to say that between 12 and 3 AM is going to be the median here.

Interesting stats, especially if you consider we are scattered around the world.

In bed between 22:00 and 23:00 and up at 05:55, except weekends and holidays.  Sometimes you need to down a half-dozen craft beers while binging on certain games in a kind of soma holiday, but you will pay for it.

I used to stay up and get up late.  Once I got up at 16:30 (which was mighty wretched).  After years of experimentation, it turns out out I need between 6.5 and 7.5 hours of sleep, plenty of exercise (I run a couple miles with the dog most days) and good nutrition to be on top of my game.

Studies have shown most people do best with regular sleep hours, and somewhere between 6 and 8 hours of sleep per day.  Try it for a week: choose your hours (start with 7.5, hours duration and choose convenient stop and start times)) and go to bed and get up at exactly the same time every day for that week.  It takes at least a week for your circadian rhythms to harmonize fully with your sleep/wake cycle (trust me, I've done a lot of cross-timezone travel).

Sleep wise I tend to head to bed around 22:00 or 23:00, though sometimes that pushes to around 00:00, Though my Alarm and time I get up is 5AM so, yeah I tend to wake up a little earlier than most of you guys it seems ;o

But up at 5am and go for a run before breakfast then work .. if I didnt get up then id have like no time to get any kind of exercise

I tell you what. Never eat pizza before going to bed whether or not its organic or anything. Ate a large pie before bed last night and got a hell of a lot of gas in the middle of the night. No digestive issues but gas and the stench kept me up all night. I couldn't sleep because it smelled so bad - even with the windows open. I will never buy pizza again!

Insomina is horrible and I solved it by just sleeping between Midnight and 7:30am.  The alarm is always set to go off, but I usually wake up before it goes off.  Most nights, I'm in bed chilling just before 00:30am.

The rest of my life has followed suit and most things are now done on a daily routine and far more productive.

I imagine there's going to be a pretty clear breakdown by age/stage-of-life.

When I was in college and for a few years thereafter I used to stay up all hours and sleep in late. These days it's in bed by 10:30-11pm, and up-and-at-em by 6-6:30am.

I've shifted my sleep schedule to accommodate less traffic before and after work.  I tend to get up around 4AM now, but I still get to bed around 11PM.  I've been doing this for a while now (well over a year), and the lack of sleep hasn't caught up to me yet, but I'm predicting that I'll hit a wall sooner or later and have to start going to bed earlier. :D

You might want to do some reading on the effects of long-term sleep deprivation on longevity

I've done research on the long term effects and honestly I would do it, if my situation was different. Once I able to have a sustainable lifestyle, I would love to do 7-9hrs of sleep, but since I'm not there yet, I want to increase my productivity. I'm not at a point where my thought processes are affected by having a short-term sleep consistency. Thanks for the insight though

I go to bed by 9:30PM, get up at 6:00AM, excercise for 1 hour, and am showered/out the door by 7:30AM, get to work at 8:00AM, get home at 7:00PM.

Looking forward to retiring so much, since I've been burned out of work for a while now.

Sleep vaguely between 9:30 PM ~ 1 AM.  Wake up vaguely between 6 AM ~ 9:30 AM.  I just wake up naturally and my body tends to end up with slightly less than 8 hours of sleep.

I used to go to sleep around 10 every day and wake up by alarm at 6:30, but I've grown to realize that the slight flexibility is worth the weird daze I get when my sleep schedule suddenly shifts by several hours.
