We were up late last night chatting with other recumbent cyclists ... this morning I slept in to a few minutes past 5.

I am a night owl, as a nurse I worked from 1900 until 0730 am in a cardiac unit. I still am awake most of the night watching TV, on my computer and reading. I shop at night in the surround area there are stores open 24 hours.

I'm definitely a night owl, no traffic going to and comming back from work. Store are opened 24hrs, I see the sunrise many times a month, never the sunset, until daylight savings time changes again.

But I love my night time!

I used to be a night owl, having worked the night shift for 25 yrs. Now, being retired, i guess i'm a morning person. I love seeing the sun rise & the sun set.

I have to say I used to be a

morning person when working dayshift. Then I worked nightshift.

 It was difficult to fall asleep after working nights; getting to bed around 9 am.

So now I am a night owl. Staying up until 3 or 4 am and then sleeping about 8- 8 1/2 hours most of the time.

Yes. Well documented studies show long term deleterious effects on health from chronic sleep deprivation. Studies also show optimal sleep for adults is 7-8 hours. I have always felt my best on 6 hours of sleep ( provided it is uninterrupted sleep ). I can function on 4-5 hours of sleep but always feel low on energy especially with 4 hours of sleep. I am much less focused on lower sleep amounts and don't get much accomplished because I am easily distracted on less sleep. This leads to general dissatisfaction with myself for wasting so much time/ not doing the things I want to do on any given day. I wish I was one of those people who do best on lower sleep amounts.
