    Do you believe in the saying "Early to bed and  early from bed"?

    I do believe and have benefited by practicing  this healthy method.  What is your style?

    You mean, you  go to bed early and wake up before the sun comes out?

    I go to bed between midnight and 1am, and wake-up between 5 and 6 am, before the sun comes out. Sometimes I have to compensate with a short nap at noon.

      Unfortunately my practice is going late to bed say by 11 or 11.30 at night and get early by around 6 or maximum 6.30 in the morning.

    I like to stay up all night and sleep in if I can.

    I pretty much operate on the "Late to bed, early to rise" "school of sleep habits".   LOL   smile   I'm not saying I think it's the healthiest thing in the world, but there's certainly something to be said for having twenty-one/twenty-two waking hours each day.    smile

    Yes i do believe in that. I tend to follow this method for a healthy and fresh day ahead. I have a son and I try to teach him this. So to make him understand I have to show him first. I love working out and early morning is always the best for that also. To inculcate good habits in children I believe in showing them rather then only ordering. Thank you.

    Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man wealthy, happy and wise.

    I dont know where the saying comes from but it hasn't worked for me but i did read somewhere that Andrew Carnegie was in bed before 10 every night.

    To each his own i suppose.

    The Chinese believe that your sleep must, at the very least, cover the period from 11.00 pm to 3.00 am because that is the time the body is healing the liver system. The liver system is one of the most important system in the body, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, because it is also the system that cleanse the body.

    I have seen how night workers, such as nightclub girls and those working on the graveyard shift (3rd shift), aged very quickly. This seems to support the above belief. So early to bed, and early to rise is good advice. Have a good night's sleep of  8 hours or more, the actual length depending on each person's requirement. That would mean you can either sleep from 7.00 pm to 3.00 am at the earliest or from 11.00 pm to 7.00 am at the latest.

    No, I do not. When I'm hungry, I eat. When I'm sleepy, I sleep.

    Great question.  As mankind evolved we were designed to be active during the day and sleep during the darkness hours.  Our bodies rejuvenate during the sleep periods. 
    So, health wise this is probably the best schedule for most people. But with the advent of businesses that require staying open 24 hours a day, this cannot always be accomplished.
    In the medical field there is a need to have people working around the clock.  Over the years i have noticed that those that work the night shifts (11:00pm -07:00am) are more laid back in personality, as the stress levels on their jobs are much less.
    Our bodies learn to adapt to the schedules we keep.  Although there are thoughts that the quality of sleep is better between the hours of 11pm - 6am, there is no proof that sleeping any other times of the day is not as effective in the rejuvenation of our body functions.

    I had some sleepless nights (study or work, not too much fun) and it didn't work well for me. I now try to go to sleep at 11-12 at night and wake up at 8. It works great for me, I get enough rest and can start the day well. Am not yet capable of getting up earlier though, 8 is the 'lowest' I can go big_smile
