    Sleeping habits.

    I've got a mate who sleeps 4 hrs a day and is still a fully functioning human being. He swears the secret is to make sure it's only 4 hrs otherwise he's knackered the whole day. 4 hrs good 3 hrs or 5 bad.

    Me? I work shifts so sometimes the alarm goes at 4am and sometimes it goes at 4pm but no matter when it goes it's pointless for me to go to bed before midnight, otherwise I can't sleep.

    Anyone else have weird sleeping habits?

    I remember speaking this guy (very weird individual) at a party when I was at Uni in Dundee. He said that during exam time he sleeps/revises in 20 minute shifts through the night. He'll set his alarm every 20 mins from 10pm-8am and will revise for 20 then sleep for 20 and so on.

    Me and a mate questioned this but he said its the best way to retain information. One of the strangest people I've ever met and this story has stuck in my head ever since.

    Nothing too weird, but I do keep on meaning to try to change my sleeping pattern to try to get more sleep. I generally fall asleep between 12-1 and my alarm gets me up at 7. I never particularly sleep in, at weekends I'll usually wake up not long after 7 unless I was particularly tired.

    I feel I should stop setting my alarm as I'm confident I'll wake up on time naturally - and feel much better for it.

    There's a theory that sleep works best in a 4 hour cycle and that 4 or 8 hours, being complete cycles, will leave you feeling better than, say 7 or 9 hours.

    I normally go to bed at 2:00am and get up at 6:45 (9:30 at weekends), though I sometimes nod off on the couch depending how crap the tv is.

    While most of you are just getting up I'm finishing off my glass of wine and am about to slink off to bed. Usually get to bed around half seven and wake up around three as I'm permanent nightshift...which is the way I like it. I've tried rotating shifts and sleeping patterns and that's the worst.

    I was about to say that I get woken up regularly, say around four or five times a "day" but I'm just used to it and I'm still fresh when I wake up for some reason. I can't imagine being a day person and being woken up so many times during my sleep.

    Maybe there's something in that four hour theory as there is definitely a four hour window where I'm in the deepest sleep imaginable. There could be bright sunlight, roadworks outside, blazing arguments in the same room but I'm out regardless.

    I can't lie in. I get up at 6.40 every day for work and don't set an alarm as I wake at 6.35 on the dot every morning. Weekends are the same, wake up at the same time and although I'll lie in bed for a bit longer I rarely fall back asleep and I'm usually out of bed by 7.15 at the latest. Not really that weird as it's just my sleeping habit but I genuinely can't remember the last time I was in bed after 8am.

    I'm exactly the same.

    I am convinced that my wife could sleep for a week if she didn't have an alarm/me/the dog to wake her up, though.

    I never lie in, I consider it to be a waste of valuable time especially at the weekend or a day off from work during the week. Pretty much midnight until 6.15am is my regular pattern during the week and until 7am at weekends.

    Back of 11 until 645 during the week.

    Usually wake up at the back of 7 at the weekends cos I need a push. Sometimes go back to bed, sometimes get up.

    I always wake up properly between 6 and 6:10 without fail every day, weekend or weekday.

    l also wake up several times a night, have done since I was in my early teens. I can count on one hand the number of nights I've slept through fully.

    Most days my Fitbit sleep pattern is up and down like a yoyo. For example, last night I woke up 5 times and was restless a further 21 times (that's not a mistype ).

    Does anybody for lack of a better word get restless legs in there bed?don't know if that's the proper wording but it drives me up the wall some nights the nights I don't get it is sleep like a log.

    Edit: just googled it restless legs syndrome is actually a condition that gets worse with age 😑 several causes most common iron deficiency.might have to see a doctor if it gets worse.

    I could sleep all day if I was left to it. If it wasn't for my wife forcing me to get up, I'd easily not wake up until 2pm on a weekend with going to bed at midnight.

    I get that occasionally, it's hell. I've found myself sleeping on cool surfaces (the floor!) Which seems to help.

    I'm pretty much the same, whenever I'm off work (weekends or annual leave) I sleep 12-14 hours straight without waking, tend to turn in around 1am and get up at 2pm is the usual routine. Getting up in the morning for work at 7 after 8-9 hours sleep is a monumental effort and I don't really fully wake up until around 10-11am. I've been like this since I was very young, and don't really drink alcohol or much caffeine at all, don't have sleep apnoea or anything like that so can't really explain my weird sleeping habits.

    Did you watch the program on BBC one earlier this week called The Trouble with Sleep? They discuss a link between insomnia and type 2 diabetes. It also had a look at some ways to improve sleeping patterns. I thought it was really interesting.

    I can explain it mate. It's quite well known actually.

    2 1/2 hours yesterday and 4 hours today, I hate nightshift.

    Not sleeping well just now. Been struggling switching my brain off, go to bed with it wirring around wake up the same so don't think it stops in between. Seem to sleep through not to bad but it can't be a quality sleep as I wake up tired every morning.

    Joys of running my own business I think.

    During the winter I was taking my medication at 3 in the afternoon and going to bed at 6. I would then wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning and be awake the rest of the day.

    I get that from time to time, it's brutal.

    Generally sleep well though, anytime between 11 and 1 for falling asleep then up at 6:45. Like a lie in at the weekend though.

    Sleeping isn't my problem, needing a piss is. Every night I'll be up at least once or twice and it does my head in. No idea last time I had a full nights uninterrupted sleep but we're certainly talking years.

    Weird sleep thing for me though is if I'm hungover or just hit a wall through being knackered it amazes me how little I need to sleep to sort me out. Sometimes even a 5 minute snooze sorts me right out.

    One of the best things I got from my time in the army was the ability to sleep anywhere at any time. That came in great use when I later worked for the emergency services on 24hr shifts, 25 minutes here and 15 there, being able to go from sleep to fully alert was something a lot of guys couldn't do and they paid the price with burnout. They only place I can't sleep is in a moving motor vehicle, but that's probably a good thing too. Funnily enough now I'm in a job with relatively normal hours in comparison to previous jobs, I have difficulty going to bed earlier than midnight.

    Can't sleep if I go to bed too early, I like to retire after 0100hrs.
    I don't use an alarm clock, I generally wake up when I'm due to get up, around 0700hrs.
    BUT,,,I do have a projection clock that beams the time on the ceiling, I reckon I clock watch without actually realising it.
