Are you a night owl, or do you like to retire early, and get up early? Do you think those who get up late are wasting their lives?

I'm a night owl completly. I hate to stay up too late because it lead me get up late and I always late for school. however, stay up late is inevitable. I lost tack of time at night. and in late night it's so quiet and peaceful that good for reading and thinking. anyway I'm a incurable night owl though I tried so hard to quit .

I can understand why. The night hours can be so peaceful. It's just you, your thoughts, and whatever else...the PC...music...DVDs. Utter peace.

in the late night or early morning, when you still wake, sometimes you get the feel like I'm the king of the world or you can do whatever you like

I think I am worse than a night owl. It looks like I am more like a vampire. I just love to stay up at night to log onto the net. I know it is not good for my wellness. Anyway, I am cutting down on this and discipline my time.

I understand what you mean perfectly. I like doing that too...there is a wonderful sense of peace in the middle of the night, and I really enjoy chilling on the net in the small hours; but like you, I am trying to get to bed earlier. Man it's hard though...that net just beckons!

I resent having to spend time in bed. I know it is necessary, but I wish it wasn't. Thankfully, I only need about four hours sleep and maybe five hours in the cooler months. I always rise early, usually around 4.00 - 4.30am. I love the quiet of the early mornings, before anyone else is around. I spend one to two hours communing with my Lord and Saviour, reading God's Word and talking with Him. This gives me strength and inspiration for the day. I am seldom in bed before midnight, but the time depends on how much work I have to do. I do a lot of voluntary secretarial and design work, and writing lessons for a children's ministry. When I am busy, I like to keep on working, and have worked right through the night and the next day at times. I praise God for the time He has given me and for the ministry He gives me, even in my old age.

You are so lucky. I wish I only needed that amount of sleep. If I only get four or five hours, I am OK once I get used to it, but feel terribly unrested at first. I always end up catching up. It seems that God has blessed you with great amounts of energy. Amen to that.

Hi CarlHalling, I think I have the same sleeping problem like you. I always have heavy stresses from work and everytime when it's bed time, I'll be lying on the bed and trying to sleep. Trying to sleep as in really FOCUSing myself to achieve black out. It got worsen for the past few years and it is becoming a habit. I need to sleep at least 9 hours daily. Sometimes, I will be feeling rather restless and I need to sleep up to 13 hours. It is crazy... Eventhough, I have this sleeping pattern, I still achieved my work and doing well with my life.

I'm a night owl, I can't fall asleep before 1am usually. Now that I work at home and make my own hours, it's more life 2am or later. I sleep late of course, but it's not wasting time since I'm up late, as long as I'm actually doing something late at night, and not just staying up doing mindless Web surfing!

There are advantages: I love the peace of being up into the small hours. Time was though I had a regular routine. I broke it about 12-13 years ago, and loved the change.

I started staying up late towards the end of 1994, and found the change exhilerating. In time I got used to it.

I live in a place where summer means light day and night and winter means darkness most of the time. During Winter solstice that comes soon, the sun is up about an hour. So it is only during autumn and spring we have "normal" daylight. I have been kind of night owl since I became partly retired and partly self employed for more than ten years ago. I still want to change that habit, a bit at least, but maybe I canĀ“t until I move to more southern regions.. At this time of the year, my sleeping habits are rather "unusual" But I know I can change if I need to get up earler..

Wow; intriguing; what time does the sun come up, and when does it go down in winter? is there no darkness at all in summer? Seems amazing to me...

I wish I was more of a morning person, and less of a night owl.
25 Jan 07
On a night when i have to get up for work the next morning, i usually go to bed around 10pm - 10.45pm, and get up about 6am. On the weekends i normally go to bed slightly later, at around 10.30pm-11.30pm, and get up when i feel like it - usually 9am ish. I do not like going to bed later as the more tired i get,the more grouchy i become. One of my workmates goes to be at 9pm EVERY night, weekdays and weekends - no matter what. I dont think i could do that all of the time.

I used to be like you. If I didn't get to bed before a certain time, say around 12pm or thereabouts, I used to suffer terrible sore eyes and be agitated in consequence. However, with advancing age, I got used to late hours. I'm not sure that's a good thing though.

My sleep is often broken. Sometimes I wish I could sleep 8 or 9 hours straight every night, and get up nice and early. My sleep patters are all over the place.

On a weekday as I have work the following day, I usually sleep around 10pm or 11pm then I get up around 6am to get to work. Fortunately I am not hooked anymore to soaps which are quite popular in my country. I usually bond with my son reading and playing with him before we retire for the night. On a weekends I try to splurge and stay way past bedtime just playing on-line, anyway I have the luxury to overslept the following day since there is no work.

I do think that who do late in night to sleep they do mistake and miss a great things in their life as they can't wake up morning. So i try my best sleep early at night and wake up early in the morning. As i have a class every day so i need to wake up early in the morning. I do sleep at around 11 clock every day.And get up 6.30 am everyday. Good day!

Bedtime for me is around 10:30-11:00 most evenings. I tend to stay up a little later on the weekend, but no later than 12:00. I prefer to rise earlier in the morning. Once I get my 8 hours of rest I am ready to start my day. In the summer months I love to rise early and enjoy the day.
