at age 66...I sleep most nights 5.5 to 6.5 hours...then wake up...... usually decide to go to the bathroom......get back in bed.....
I hit the hay most nights at 10pm when home...if I'm traveling, maybe 9 pm......
Awake at 4 am...5 am...if i exercise moderately...or talk for an hour or two........well, I sleep another hour or two...... if I exercise too much...I sleep less, with sleep apnea rearing its ugly head.....waking up too many times....
I dunno....just get enough exercise every day to tire you out.
I turn on a radio when I wake up ..listen to the Midnight Trucker program on many of the clear channels...good right wing radio.....and usually sometime later I fall asleep and the next thing I know it is an hour or two later...and time to get up.
Yeah, it is a bummer if you are with people who go to bed at 3am, sleep till noon.....
Youngsters and teenagers and 20s folks tend to get sleepy at 2 or 3 am and sleep till noon.
Older folks get sleepy right after sunset..and are 'awake' at 6am or earlier for the most part...just part of the aging process.
I don't do well at parties that start at 9 or 10pm......
