    i don't know, it always seems better to sleep early and wake up early than to sleep late and wake up late, even though i'm getting the same amount of sleep in both cases

    from what i've read from several authors on t-nation, its better to sleep early and wake up early than the opposite, they say that the hours you get before midnight are more restful

    Some hormones change according to the amount of light you get (ie melatonin). It's easier to fall asleep (your body probably responds best too) at the onset of these hormones rather than after you've felt them for awhile.

    Apparently, it's better to wake up at a consistent time every day. If you're extra tired, you should go to bed early rather than sleep in...

    It's optimal to get a straight 8 hours of sleep and sleep in the same time frame everyday.

    i hear your body stops making seratonin at around 6am, so if you sleep from 4am to noon you run a higher risk of being depressed
