When I lived in Iowa, I often stayed up until 2 or 3am every night because that’s when I got sleepy. Living in Seattle, that’s switched to Midnight or 1am most nights, which is pretty consistent considering the timezone shift. Steve Pavlina has been doing some experiments with sleeping and also getting out of bed earlier. I’m not entirely convinced getting up early leads to more productivity, but he might be on to something. Steve’s not a specialist in the area of sleep, but I think he still may be on to something. He’s also got tips about getting up when the alarm goes off. One tip for early rising he fails to note is having kids. There’s nothing like a four-year-old standing next to your head saying, “Wake up” to prompt you to get out of bed.
