Speak Up: What's Your Sleeping Schedule?

Speak Up: What's Your Sleeping Schedule?

Adequate sleep is a vital part of a healthy life. Not catching enough Zs has been linked to migraines, heart problems, a weakend immune system, high blood pressure, weight issues, and of course crankiness.

While it's best to aim for seven to eight hours of sleep a night, no one says you need to hit the sheets by 10 p.m. So what is your sleep schedule? Do you feel like you get enough sleep? Do you go to bed at the same time every night and wake up every morning at the same time? What about on the weekends? Share your sleep schedule in the comments section below.

I try for 8-9 or eve 10 hours if I'm training particularly hard. in the summer I either run early or work early, so it's bed by about 8pm to be up by 5 or 530am. During the fall and spring though I tend to got to bed at 930 or 10 and get up around 6 or 7.

Tiger Lily...I feel your pain! I get in bed around 9:30, but don't fall asleep til 11 or so. And then I wake up all night long. Then, I'm exhausted all day! And you think I'd sleep in on the weekends...but it doesn't matter...if I go to bed at 4, I'm up at 7 or 8. It sucks.

We got to bed about 11pm and then I wake up around 2am, 4am and then usually about half an hour before the alarm at 6am. I've told my doctor but I am being tested for all kinds of things so she isn't too concerned with it right now. :(

Since I shortened my commute, I dont have to wake up during the week until 7:30 AM. This means as long as I hit the hay by midnight at the latest, I'm golden. This is awesome cos it means I have so much more time in the evenings to do shit and go out and see friends! Back in the day I used to have to be up at 5:00 AM, and I used to go to bed at 8:30 PM sometimes. That friggen sucked. Here's to moving closer to work! :drinks:

My sleep schedule is terrible in comparison to most people on here. But I'm in college, and I don't have classes until noon1 I usually go to sleep between 2-4 am every day, and then I wake up between 8-10 am. On Fridays, I wake up at about 9 or 10 because I have a baby-sitting job from 11-2:30. On Saturday and Sunday, I sleep like there's no tomorrow! kikidawn - I feel the same way about oversleeping. Sometimes I feel more tired if I get 12 hours of sleep versus 6 hours. It probably has to do with my diet or catching up on lack of sleep or something.

Usually in bed around 10, sometimes as late as 11, up at 6:30 or 6:45 every day. I'm always tired because I have a neuro-muscular disorder that causes fatigue, and it's been playing up lately so I usually take a 1.5 hour nap after work as well. It's the only way I can do anything in the evening other than lie on the couch.

I've noticed that refined sugar and carbohydrates tend to make me sleep more. I can get by on 6.5 hours without an alarm clock (unless the sun counts) and feel fine. As they say, quality over quantity. And I never skip out on an afternoon power nap. :)

My sleep schedule should look like this: 9pm - 6ish am, but it doesn't ... it usually looks like this: 10(11)pm - 7ish am. That's 9 hours or so of sleep, but it doesn't do it for me. I am exhausted. I think it's b/c our mattress sucks though (like no padding on top of the springs). So I'm getting quantity sleep, but not quality sleep. We are going to get a new mattress tomorrow. Also is it possible to get too much sleep and that make you feel tired and exhausted throughout the day? B/c I can sleep all the time, 10-12 hours a night and still feel tired the next day! I don't know what's wrong with me :(

It was all over the place during summer...trying to get it all sorted out again since classes start soon. So now bed by 10:00 and alarm goes off at 6:15. Haven't been able to get up before 7:30 yet though, lol. Oh well, may as well enjoy my last couple weeks of freedom :)
