Subject: BS: Sleep pattern
From: Zany Mouse
Date: 08 Jan 07 - 05:41 PM

We have what I consider to be a weird sleep pattern. Can I ask what other catters regard as a 'regular' pattern? Are most of you in bed by Midnight and up with the lark?

Anything between midnight and 6.00am is regular for me... but recently it's been more like between 2.00am - 5.00am. A lot of it is to do with Christmas diet, being overloaded at work and possibly the first stirrings of another bout of depression.

I'm usually asleep before 1.00am and wake up, as a rule, about 7.00am.

When everything works right, 1AM to 8-9AM... It works right once a week, if I'm lucky.

It has been known for quite awhile that we have different patterns...some of it is discussed in places like these

Roughly midnight to 5:30. I can't sleep if I go to bed much earlier unless I'm dog tired. I go to bed a bit later and sleep in on weekends but even at that, I'm usually awake, if not out of bed, by 7:30.

During the week I'm up at 6:00. I go to bed anywhere between 10 and midnight.

On the weekends I sleep until 8 or 9. I usually go to sleep very shortly after turning off the light unless my mind is racing.

Hi Rhiannon
My sleep pattern is absolute rubbish at the moment.

That is caused by this horrible cough/cold virus/my daughters big sleeping problems/watching the test matches :-)

Having managed to get my daughter off by 11:30 managed to get 3 and a half hours in, before tickly cough woke me up. Having a cup oftea at the moment and surfing. I guess I will get back to bed about 4 and will be up about 7:30

I have always been up relatively early all my life and if I ever sleep in, I normally finish up with a headache (nowt to do with the alcohol :-)   ).

Unlike a lot of people, I don't get phased out about sleep patterns. If I wakeup in the middle of the night, I just get up, do a few things, relax and generally go back to bed about an hour later and get back to sleep.

What I can't do is lie in bed awake, I have to get up.

Rhianon,
I usually go to bed between 3:00 am and 6:00 am and stay there from one to nine hours, as those around me, obligations, and other conditions allow.

What is your weird sleep pattern?

Peace,
Those are sheep, not sleep. (grin)
I agree, they make a lovely pattern. How do you always manage to find the perfect image to link to a post?

Given anything extraordinarily interesting to do, I'll go to bed when I'm good and ready whether it's 3:00 or whenever. As a rule though in recent years I go to bed about 12:00 and get up anywhere from 6:30 to 8:00. In the summertime I am usually up before 6. An Alaska summer dawn breaks at about 3:00 although the sky never does get fully dark until August sometime. The local native people used to call August "the month the stars return".

I go to sleep quickly and sleep well. And I usually take a nap in my chair in the evening, although, again, if something interesting is going on I'm fine.

My guess is that I have trained myself to just let go and sleep. I'm probably normally asleep within five minutes.

I sleep when I'm sleepy and when I'm not, I'm awake. Being retired has it's advantages! Consider the Taoist's "Yin Yang" symbol. The little spot of opposite color in the center of each swirl means, among other things, that you should take a nap every afternoon!

I must admit I like your whole attitude to it, Villan. Maybe I should do that. I seem to 'waste' a lot of time in bed, just lying awake, sometimes all night. A lot of that has to do with pain, but not all. Trouble is, when I lay there I start mulling things over (ALWAYS in a negative way) or I get very bored. Neither helps sleep return.

Yep, the more I think about it, the more I think I will take a leaf out of Villan's book.

Squeaks: Are you OK?

awe thank you Rhiannon :-)

As it was, I did go to bed at 4 and I did wake up at 7:30 :-)

I always think that mentally people think they have to stay in bed when they can't sleep as that is the done thing. However as long as you don't wake anybody else up, then getting up and having a drink and watching telly, listening to radio or surfing the Internet helps to take your mind off the problem of trying to get to sleep.

I think the thing to do is be positive about your sleeping pattern and value the time when you do get sleep and stop worrying about the times when you can't sleep and get up and do something - better than lying there getting all wound up and still not getting to sleep.

I normally get to bed between 12 & 1, & wake about 7. I have between 6.20 & 7 hours of sleep. Some nights I get to bed well after 1, but I still get up round 7, or maybe 7.30 if I got to bed after 2, any later I wouldn't be able to get to work on time. If I sleep too long - over 8 hours - my back hurts.

On Saturdays I get up at 6 to meet friends for brekky, so I try to get to bed closer to 12.

On weekends I sometimes have a nap in the afternoon, at work I just YAAAAAWWWN a bit some afternoons!

I don't see myself making any changes when I retire next month.

If I'm not out and about I try to get to bed by 11.30pm as I'm up just after 6am for an 8am start at work.

I know I need on average 7-8 hours sleep per 24 hours and if I don't get enough during the night I'm one of the lucky ones who can sleep on a clothes line. I'll often have a 10-20 minute doze when I get home from work in the early evening. It sets me up for an evening out and failure to have this short nap can mean dozing at the folk club it it's warm and the music is soft and relaxing.

If I'm tired in the day I can go off to sleep in a chair, on the train, in my car (not whilst driving), in the bath and on occasion in front of my computer screen at work (so lightly I can hear footfalls along the corridor and appear alert and working to the casual observer should they glance through my window).

I am a great believer in following what your body tells you. If you're not tired, don't sleep. If you're not hungry, don't eat.

However, NEVER pass up the opportunity to visit the loo for, if you do, you can guarantee that your car will get a puncture or blow a radiator hose 10 miles from home and you will have to sit with your legs crossed waiting for the R.A.C.

Christine

I am in bed by 10pm, asleep by 10.30, up for about half an hour at about midnight, sometimes up for an hour or so at about 2 or 3, sometimes sleep through till 5.45 am when I get up.

If I didn't have a 5 month old baby, things would be a loooooooooooooooot different!

I try not to drag myself out of bed before daylight - I've been told that switching the light on suddenly is VERY BAD FOR YOU. (Luckily I live well south of the Arctic circle.)
In June I am often up and about by 4 a.m.

Good grief - my sleeping arrangements seem so banal by comparison; in bed by 10.30, read for half an hour and then sleep through until 6.30 (5.30 in the summer months).

Bed between 10 and 12, up at 4 or 5, then a nap around 9 or 10. I started sleeping in 2 shifts years ago when I had to get up at 3.30 to go to work. That only lasted a couple of years but I've never been able to break the habit.
