What is your sleep schedule?

I usually go to bed at midnight or a bit later. I currently wake at between 6-6:30 am, I tend to always wake early during the spring and summer when the sunrises early, I sleep longer in the winter when it stays dark. I do occasionally get to have an afternoon nap if I need it.

I get home at around 8:30am, fuck around for a bit, go to bed at about 10:30. Sleep for a couple of hours, get up and fuck around for a bit, go back to sleep sometime in the afternoon and wake up at about 9:30pm.

Weekends I'll pretty much just sleep whenever I'm tired /whenever I feel like it. No set schedule.

For the better part of last month I was crashing out before 10pm, waking and staying up from 2-3am to 5-6am and finally waking back up and out of bed by 10am.

When I smoke a lot of pot I will pass out between 6pm-9pm.

I am usually asleep from about 00:00/01:00 - 06:30/07:00

I get up work out a bit ,get dressed, and go to work. As I'm working from home now I get up a bit later.

At the weekend or on holiday I will vary this depending on what I'm doing, but I still sleep no less than 4 and no more than 8 hours.

I was born with severe obstructive sleep apnea that comprehensive surgery and positive airway pressure equipment failed to treat, so I've always been all over the place with my sleep schedule when not taking prescription medications (which began in late 1996).

Prior to that, it was typical for me to go to bed between 2:00 and 3:00 AM, then sleep past noon when I wasn't going to school.

Most of my working life, I typically worked the 3:00 PM -11:00 PM shift. I also worked 11:00 PM - 7:00 AM off and on over the years, but never got completely comfortable with overnight hours. I also held one job which took me from 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM, but was getting out of work in a surreal afternoon haze.


The idea of "sleep hygiene" is a blatant myth BTW. If there was any validity to the concept at all, then everybody with a developing brain who grows up attending school from the early morning to early afternoon would retain that schedule through the rest of their lives.


One nice thing about the modern 24/7 world is that all sleep cycles can be accommodated today. 70 years ago or more, I'd have been a railway lineman or watchman, or working some other jobs which allowed for what seems to be my natural schedule. (As a kid, I had a vintage Lionel train set, and wanted to grow up to be an engineer and sleep in a red caboose, something I saw frequently on the rails in Miami.)

You sleep 12 fucking hours?

I get about 5 or 6 maximum.
I envy that, and it's people like yourself who really need to be studied in overnight sleep laboratories. We study disease, not health, and efficient sleep is one of those things that doesn't get explored like it should.

Unless medication really knocks me out, my bed sheets are all "torn up" after a full night in bed, and always have been. I also need to sleep on my stomach so my airway doesn't collapse, screwing up my neck, shoulders and back.
