After Hours>How early is too early to go to bed?

My oul' fella always used to say " 7 for a man, 8 for a woman and 9 for a fool..."

I do a lot of shift work so most of the time I sleep for 4 to 5 hours but crash out maybe once a fortnight for 8 hours or so. Extremely rare for me to sleep any longer than that.

Do you feel tired usually? Id love to be able to run on four hours of sleep, youd get so much more stuff done!

But for instance doing an all nighter during college is a waste of energy for me because if I dont sleep 7 hours one night my body just makes me sleep for double the amount the next night or I never feel right, even I slept four hours one night Id need to sleep 7+4 hours the next night to feel back to normal again

Asleep by 12 up at 5.50. If I get more than 8 hrs sleep I'll be like a weasel!! Every1 is different

Get the toddler in a routine and it shouldn't be a problem.

6 hours sleep does me good
But each person is different
Broken sleep is a killer though

Generally I wouldn't feel too tired but if I'm at home and I do feel tired I'll lie down on the couch and tell herself to call me in 20 mins. Right as rain then again after that.
It doesn't mean I get more done though - just more time doing nothing !! :D

Have smallies that rise most mornings at 5-30. It's not worth staying up after 10 for me.

I appreciate that you seem to know by just reading a one liner that I have no routine established :) What's your hourly rate, Supernanny?

I have it in my head that being in bed before 9.30pm is a bit sad.

No response why? Now we have a little one, I don't care much anymore

"After Hours" means after pub closing time? That, then.

Anything before 10.30 pm is just undignified.

I usually retire between midnight and 1a.m. Waken promptly at 7.15, plus an afternoon siesta. Bright as a button at all times.

very bad sleeper seem to get a lot of energy in the evening ,sometimes stay up till 2 or 3 am then lie in bed for what seems like hours before i nod off , find it hard to get up in the morning. Can't be right.? will continue to wear boxing gloves in bed till i can get a cure.

Usually between 10-12 and up at 7am.
Closer to 10 usually but if we end up watching something interesting we will stay up.

What's the problem, why doesn't the toddler sleep through the night?
