As i get older I seem to need less
I could sleep for England, if it was an olympic sport I'd be a multi gold medal winner!! My other half is in awe of my ability to be asleep before I'm even lying down properly.....
That said, the last few nights have been challenging, what with the heat and noisy neighbours/dogs (a down side to having windows open).
Most nights we are in bed by 10pm at the very latest as we are both up early - and I'm a bit tetchy if I don't get enough sleep.
I really need my sleep.......
more and more
Usually in bed between 9 and 10.occassionally later but then I need a 7 pm bedtime to catch up.......
stay in bed till at least 7 am each morning........usually awake at times during the night though......
and when i get more tired i have an afternoon nap like today.......
I'm feeling tired right now. That'll do.
About 10.15 to 10.30. But I sleep very lightly and in the summer up here in Scotland I am often awake before 4am!
Bed just after 10, up at 5. Prefer about an hour less, with a 20 minute nap in the day.
Forget all this 8+ hours per night nonsense, learn to nap. It's like having a reset button half way through your day.
I've been asleep (18:00 - 19:00), I've been asleep again (22:45 - 01:50), I might go back to sleep until maybe 04:30.
12 mile run at 05:30.
Go to sleep again at 08:15.
Wake up at 08:45.
Go do some work.
A typical day.

holy cow! that sounds very military.. or something
Need my sleep, 9.30pm off to bed then up at 6am. Its always 6am I think anybody who has been in the forces for the rest of their lives wake up at 6am whether they want to or not
My bed time is normally 9 pm,
I really need my sleep, otherwise i don't feel human.............
I turn everything off at 9 pm: TV off, lights off, go upstairs, brush teeth, clean face...........go to bed. May read a little while in bed, until before 10 pm, but i try to be sleeping by 10 pm.
I woke up at 7 am, (with alarm clock) .............when my cat gives me the "paw in face" treatment..........
Fatima - 9 pm sounds great but not achievable for me. I train on a night and when it has been hot sometimes I dont go out till 9 pm. My other half works shifts and doesnt get home til 10pm every night on alternate weeks so I wouldnt see him if I didnt stay up. I get up in the morning at 6 to walk the dog before I start work at 8 and find getting up at that time really difficult. So I normally get 7 hours but feel like I need 8. Just try to catch up on a weekend
I seem to go to bed these days ataround 11.30 - 12 but still up at 5-5.30am. I seem to do alright on 5 ish hours a night. I do get to sleep for 35 mins on the train morning and evening. They must be my power naps
