It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.--- Aristotle I can never manage that, only these two days, i set the alarm clock to drag myself down from bed to bid at ebay for my dear eyeshadow at 2.30 and 3.15 each time. After that, i slipped back into my warm quilt once again. What I hate most to do in the morning is to get up early, earlier before 8.30 or 9.00. What i hate to do in the evening is to finish my short night life early. I normally, no, especially these days surfing on ebay, i go to bed at 01:00 am. by night life i mean to pursue my personal interest like watching movie and writing mylot and search items online. when do you get up and go to bed ? are you a late bird as me ?

If I had it my way I would sleep all day and stay up all night! I am a major night owl! When I was a teenager I would get in bed around 3 or 4 am and sleep untill 1 or 2 pm sometimes later. Now that I am older I had to grow up so during the week I have to get up at 6;30 and I try my best to go to bed before 1 am, but it is very hard for me to do sometimes. Weekends I am like a teenager again,up till 3 or 4 and sleeping until around 11 or 12 pm I dont know what it is but I am at my best at night!

Since I'm retired I have no set time for waking up or going to bed, or anything else. I always wake up with the sunrise. I see the sun shining through the window and hear the birds singing and I'm more then happy to get up and get moving . I usually go to bed around midnight or so. That depends on if I took my siesta during the day . No siesta, I might be asleep before 10:00 at night .

I get up very early. Probably before 6:30 most days. This is when I first start working on the computer. I slow down during the day, and I take a nap ususally in the afternoon. Then I get my second wind, and I stay up at least until 11:00, but sometimes until 2 or 3 in the morning. I work on the computer at night, too, and I let time get away from me. I guess that is why I am always so tired in the afternoon! Because even if I stay up until 3, I will still get up by 6:30.

Well I'm not a early riser either, I'm usually up between 8:30am and 9:00am, I start my day around that time. I hate getting up earlier than that too, sometimes I may have a doctor appt. real early and all I can think about is having to get up early..haha. I usually go to bed around 11 or 11:30 and I'm asleep by 12, usually watch a little tv first, I used to be able to stay up till 2 or 3 in the morning, but I can't do it anymore, getting old I guess..lol.

Hi Sparky, You and I two peas in a pod. I am exactly the same way. I love to sit on line until sometimes 5:00 am. I love the quiet, no phones, no people, just quiet. And then I love to sleep. So it's a vicious circle (that I love). Cheers, Nightowl

Hi there tudors! Since November this year, I had to wake up as early as 5:30 in the morning. That is because my work starts at 7:30 in the morning. Every semester, my waking time changes depending on the time of the first class I have to attend to. (Yes, I teach.) At night, if I am not that busy, I would sleep at around 10:00. If I have to work on tons of papers, I would most likely hit the sack at around 1:30am.

The best time for me to get up is nature awake up, but I cann't. Every morning I must get up early than my husband and son, than I awake them, sent my son to the kindergarten and I go to my corporation. Every evening is also busy. Doing some housworks, playing with my son ,and accompany him to play piano. I must go to bed early, cause my son want to sleep with me, early to bed will make his body healthy. Sometimes I feel tired, really need to sleep for a rest. Happy mylotting.

I don't get up early! But for the record, the earliest I got up (take note. AT WILL!) was 6.30 am because I dunno I just felt like it. I ate early, showered early and went to work early. I was even half-galloping, half-tap dancing to work. My sleep schedule's kind of irregular. I sometimes sleep at 8, or go as late as 2 or 3 am.

I have always been a night owl. I was born at 1am and I have been staying up ever since. Now that I a am out of school, I can stay up all night. But usually I get to bed by 3am. If it is a work day , then I get up at 9am. If it is a day off, then I get up at 10 am.But I have stayed up until 6am and then gotten up at 9am to go to work.

I usually get up before 7 because I have to go to work before 7:45. My working unit has a very strict rule about time and we must be punctual. For me, I hate to wake up sleepy and tired, but I have no way! Night is my favourite time to pursue my personal interest like you. I like to visit my relatives and friends or go to the supermarket with my wife. I always surf on the net late into night. That has become my must-do stuff. I search some information, get contact with my friends, check my emails or do online shopping. When I get really sleepy, it is already 11 or more. So i go to bed very late.

I usually wake up at 7am and will go out to work by 8.30am. For the weekends, I usually sleep till around 8am and that would be it, I will get up and work on different things and try to be productive. I usually go to bed at around 10pm or 11pm. I think I have a quite healthy sleeping routine.

I get up every morning between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. Not because I enjoy getting up but I do so enjoy the peace and quiet that I have and I get so much work done that by the time many people are getting out of bed I am done working for the day. It is so worth it to me. Love the peace and quiet and be finished with work early so I have the entire day to do with as I please! I usually go to bed around 10:00 in the evening, sometimes later if I happen to be watching a show I enjoy or if I'm on the computer doing something that I enjoy doing!

For me sleep has been the biggest problem till date.I dont get proper sleep any day.I usually use to sleep early and get up early before some yeas.But now since 7 months i am getting insomniac.I cant sleep till 2 in the midnight and i get up by 6 or mostly 7 in the morning.but then my sleep is incomplete my eyes never open up but i have to get up in any condition though. i always make it a point that today i will sleep early and get a good sleep but i always fail.i just sleep for 5 hours in 24 hours and rest all times i am busy in work. i am so busy that i sometimes feel as if i am going to fall off on road in stressed condition i have tried a lot times taking sleeping pills but it has caused me a lot of harm in recent tmes. i wish i could sleep peacefully without any tensions. i remember sometimes i havent even slept for 24 hours just stick my self to computer then

Well, I get up at seven O' clock or five minutes earlier, it's kind of a habit actually, waking up at seven without the need of an alarm going off since I go to high school and I live in pakistan, here we need to be inside school before eight no matter which school it is. After coming from school or at two-thirty, I turn on the T.V and wacth it for an hour or so, might read a novel for two hours, then turn on my P.C at eight and surf my favourite websites, those are Mylot and Facebook. And I go to bed at ten, like every other kid. Thanks for the discussion.

Hello my dear tudors Ji, Well, I follow following slogan, "EARLY TO BED, EARLY TO RISE, MAKE HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND WISE" I try and go to my bed by 2130 hrs. I do not want to attend any telephone calls after 2000 hrs. I do not expect any body rining my door after 2000hrs. It might be very bad for others, but i live my own ways. At the same time, I do not compel any on eto follow my ways, as tehy may not suit to present generation. may god bless you and habve a great time.

Hi Tudors, I normally get to bed around 10 to 11pm, and I need to wake up to work at 4am in the morning, so I can't stand so late go to bed, it so hard to me. I need time to sleep to get body in good condition when I am working.
