Sleep

Recommended Posts

I hear people all the time saying that, going to bed earlier, is better than waking up later, as the sleep is some how "better". I dont see how it could be, unless its something to do with light, and sleeping more deeply in the dark.

 

Any ideas?

My father used to be a firm advocate of that statement.

 

The first thing that occurs to me is that

a) It may be somehow more in phase with the bodies natural rythyms.

b) Going to sleep earlier means you weren't up as long the day before ;) .

 

Speaking of sleep and strange coincidences, I just looked at the time.

 

Cheers, I'm off to bed.

Just from experience, when I took summer classes and woke up at 6 am everyday for a couple of months, I felt more energetic and in tune with my body than ever before. I would even get up early on weekends because my body felt no need for a sleeping-in.

 

I think it may very well have something to do with light, but it also may have to do with a steady sleep pattern. Nowadays, because of my schedule, I go to bed at any time from 11pm to 1 am, and I've been feeling more tired.
