Do you sleep earlier on cold winter days?
November 15, 2009 6:43am CST
It is now getting colder and colder with each shower of rain coming to us. When the weather gets colder, I don't feel like staying up late at night. I used to stay late at night, but now I sleep earlier because of the cold weather and the cold rain that we are having these days. Today (November 15th, 2009), the temperature is from 3 to 10 degrees centigrade and it is rainy and cold. Tomorrow the temperature will be even lower from 1 to 6 degrees centigrade. Usually when it is cold in winter, I sleep earlier than usual. So I am wondering whether you guys there also sleep earlier on cold winter days. Stay warm, friends.

Hello my friend williamjisir Ji, It is natural way of living. After sun-sets andNight falls, it becomes cool andby nature, one should retire to bed. Once it is raining and cold, it automatically takes me to bed and I too go to sleep. In our country, if it is added with no power, I am tempted togo to bed even much earlier. May God bless You and have a great time.

Hello my friend williamjisir Ji, WE too have winter season and it is tolerable here. But Next month it will be like your place. Mercury will dip to zero. But what weather I hjad during my childhood, I do not think, I will ever get. During that time, I remember teeth used to produce some music by shivering apart from covering many fold winter garments. May God bless You and have a great time.

seems hangzhou is colder than here in shenzhen. today the lowest temperature is 9, it's the coldest day in this winter until now. but the weather report says it will be higher abt 2 days later. i think i'm the same, begin to sleep before 11:00pm, but if in summer, sometimes after 12pm . no fire to get warm as in my hometown, when it's cold like so, feel hard.haha...

I agree with you that it is the winter wind that makes it even colder. These two days we are having the warm sunshine without wind. The temperature is now getting higher with the sun's visiting us. I like it when it gets warmer. Then we can have more outside activities without staying inside all the time.

hahaha!...I don't know why on reading your discussion content it reminisced me on the past life story in my hometown before I came here in December 2006 living as an expatriate in this country. You know what my dear great friend, William? hahaha! my father said during winter is a good season to 'make kid', sorry for my jokes for today but sometimes I think what has been said by my father is 99% true...hahaha!

Hello Michael. I think that you are right though it is a joke. Many jokes come from our realistic life. It is only nine six, but I am getting ready to tug into my warm blanket and quit to enjoy my warm sleep. I don't like it when it is so cold. Colder days will follow when it keeps raining and stay windy. Have a good day, my dear friend.

When it is cold, it makes us feel a little bit lazy. I wished that I had no evening classes tonight so that I would not have to go to school. But anyway, I am now done with my classes and have just come back for my spare time. What a good feeling it is to be home when it is cold outside.

[b]Different strokes, I guess, because it's just the opposite for me! With the very first nip in the air of Fall, it's as if something in me sparks & I come alive! The colder it becomes, the more energy I have, & by my birthday (Jan 6), I feel as if I can do anything, take on the whole world! Wow! Just lemme AT 'em!! Conversely, the hotter it gets, the less sleep I get, my energy plummets, & I'm not worth a soggy dishrag by August...fehh.... Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

Hello besthope. Cold weather in winter does make quite some people prefer to sleep earlier in their warm blanket or quilts. I am such a person though. I am glad that now winter is far away from us and we are now enjoying our nice spring. Enjoy your life, friend.

Well most of the time when its winter for some reason i wake up earlier thatn usual. My schedules for the day decide what time i should sleep. Normally when I dont have anything to do I slep pretty early. Like at around 9pm. I think the cold makes you tired faster.

Hello dh. I agree that one's scheduels for the day decide what time one should sleep. If you have to get up early in the morning for work, then you will have to sleep earlier so that you will be energetic for your work the next day. Take care, friend.

Hello my friend! There is no winter here in the Philippines. But there are times that it is really cold here especially in our city. Most often than not, I sleep earlier during those cold nights. It's been that way for the past two months. We expect the temp to be colder in the next two to three weeks. And until then, I would most likely sleep early at night.

Hello dolce-vita. Yes, when the weather is cold, many people tend to sleep earlier. I am glad that the weather is getting warmer now with the passing of winter. Spring is on the corner. I miss spring a lot after the long winter. Stay warm, friend.

Winter days are my favorite for sleeping. I tend to rise late from the bed. I sleep at the regular time after finishing my work. But when it comes to rising in the morning, it is fun! I set an alarm at 7 am and the one more at 7:30 am. But I only make then off and again go to sleep until i rise at about 9 am in the morning. It real fun sleeping until late in the winter!

Yeah, when it is time for us to get up, we just want to sleep more and sometimes we might sleep a lot more and get up late, especially during the holidays. I am glad that winter is gradually going away with the weather getting warmer now. Take care, friend.

Hello williamjisir, I seem to sleep and be a lot more sluggish in the winter time. I think it must be because it is colder and I tend to cover up more to stay warm and then I get to comfortable and warm and it ends up putting me to sleep. I also get where i don't want to get out of bed in the morning either because it is cold and I just want to stay under that blankets but in the summer time it gets too hot and all you want to do is get up so you can stop sweating....

The weather doesn't really change my sleeping habits. It's hot and humid in my part of the world these days...the temp is 38 degrees now at 8:30pm. I still stay up late and I have my fan next to me...in winter, i have a fire going. I still wake at 6am to feed my animals and again, either the fan or the fire go on.
22 Nov 09
You are still using the fan to keep you cool? I guess that you are in the southern hemisphere of the earth. Yeah, 38 degrees centigrade is a hot temperature. This summer we had extremely hot days that we could not sleep well. I don't like it too hot, nor do I like it too cold.

I can see that it is getting colder in your side because it is the same in Guangzhou. Two weeks ago we could still wear summer clothes, but right now everybody puts on coats. We have been slept earlier than before because of our son. Once we go to bed, then he can go to sleep. We change because of our child rather than the weather:) I love China

Hello youless. I see that it is usually the child that makes us sleep earlier. If we parents sleep late, they will usually follow us without wanting to sleep earlier. Just this morning it snowed again and it is freezing here that I am becoming very inactive. Take care, youless.

I do not sleep early because it is winter, but I will retire to bed early, finishing kitchen work soon and cover myself with sweater and shawl and monkey cap, cover with blanket and read some book. I will close the room door so that the room is cozy.

actually i dont sleep that quick but i wake up early in the morning as u see winter is the best season to build up your fitness which will last for the whole year. here in india we dont have that cold minimum temperature is about 8-10 degree cent. and also we dont have rain in winter seasons. so its not a very big problem. a suggestion for everyone enjoy what ever season u have its gods way to give varity to our life.

It is true for me as well, during winter i rather go to bed early inspite of sitting in drawing room watching tv and all. I feel that let me get warm under the warm blanket and enjoy nice sleep. The temperature you've mention is really low must be tooo cold there. Keep warm of yourself. Take care.

Yeah, it is too cold here. The cold we have here is different from that in the north of China, which is dry cold. But ours is wet cold. I am having more layers to cover me while sleeping to keep me warm. I have even used electric blanket. I feel nice and warm this way. Stay warm, friend.
