My sleep schedule is usually from 3-4AM to 10-11AM. Sometimes noon. Just depends on what I have going on that day. I like working second shift for this reason. :thumb:

Whenever I worked days, I was a ask me in two hours type of person. I'm still that way no matter what time I get up though.

I am a morning person only if it means staying up,there's something about midnight to 4 or 5 a.m. that I love.

As for a normal morning person,no way whatsoever,it's seriously one of the reasons I started my own business.Don't get me wrong,I still have to get up 2 1/2 weeks of every month and do the morning routine but I also have the rest where I can sleep in and do whatever.

...Same here, although I'm a bit tired right now because of my slightly jumble work schedule, but that is supposed to get ironed out once the boss comes back from vacation. Ooops! I guess ya didn't need my complete history. I voted "ask me in two hours". :D

I like being different. I work when everyone else is off work, I am up when everyone is asleep, and I can go errand running while everyone else is at work.

Yeah. I have my body on a certain schedule. When they have supervisor meeting once a month at 10:30AM, everyone wonders why I don't like it. I look at the day shift assistant and ask her how she'd like getting up and coming in five hours before her shift. She said she wouldn't cuz she'd be asleep. I said, "Well, then you'd know how I feel!" She always says I shouldn't have anything to complain about since I'm single with no kids, and how nice that must be. I hate that even more. She chose to have kids, so she shouldn't complain. And, secondly, I think she's the one who's lucky since she does have kids. Anyway....don't get me started...too late, huh?

I feel a little differently about second shift simply because I don't get to spend as much time with the family. The wife and kids are off to work/school before I get up and they are asleep before I get home. But when there was an opening for the second shift supervisor position I had to go for it simply because it meant more money with which to support the family.

As far as her kids go, it is asinine for her to use them as an excuse for being miserable. I think my kids are the best thing I have going.

I complain about being there due to sleep, she complains about me complaining, and the third shift whines due to having to stay over three hours before the meeting starts. Can't please everyone all the time. Off to bed I go. 'Night.

Not at all. The terrible thing is that the job I've had for the last 10 years requires me to be at work at 5 AM, which means I have to be up at 4:15 to get a quick shower and get to work. :ZZZ:

My all time favorite work shift was from 5:30 PM to 2:30 AM.

It's definitely not a natural state for me. Sleeping from 4am - noon seems about "normal" for me. But I really feel like I'm more focused and productive on those rare occasions where I can maintain the 10 pm - 6 am rhythm for more than 2 days.

I have been doing 12 hour shift 11 am - 11 pm for several years now. Me getting up before 11 or 12 on my days off is horrible both for me and those around me. Try to get to sleep by 2 am on work nights, 3 or 4 on days off. Those hours after everyone else has gone to bed are some of the best of the day! :thumb:

Nope not a morniing person at all. I worked the afternoon shifts for 5 1/2 years and loved it. Its the best shift in the WORLD! I dont care what ppl tell me.

However, just recently I had to move over to Day shift for personal reasons. I hate it. Im bitter right now and it sucks! Im dying to get back on the afternoon shift! When I get my opportunity, I will go back! Here are my reasons for not enjoying the day shift:

#1. Getting up real early in the morning. Approx 6:00am

#2. Cant sleep at 9:00pm, or even 10:00, 11:00pm. My body likes to sleep at around 1:00am or 2:00am

#3. I average 4-5 hrs sleep daily. Thats atrocious. Body and mind just dont feel right. Cant function well. Cant digest my food properly, cant think clearly. Always tired and dont want to do anything anymore.

#4. Here's a biggie. GETTING STUCK IN TRAFFIC FOR 3HRS! EVERY, SINGLE, DAY! Monday mornings and Friday afternoons are the worst! Everything is rush rush rush go go go. Nobody relaxes, totally opposite of laidback. Trust me, I know their are a lot of you out there that can relate to what Im saying. Getting stuck in traffic and feeling tired at the same time, just wanting to go home but you cant! Thats a REAL PAIN IN THE A**!

#5. All the big bosses roam around, spy on what you do. This translates into working harder, with more aggravation, pressure from up top. On afternoons you have the ability to work at your own pace where nobody bothers you because no big bosses roam around. Its great! Feels like a country club. You have the capability of getting the job done just as good, if not, better. Without all the hassle, and aggravation.

*Day shift is the most overrated shift imo

Afternoon shift>Day shift

I'm not a morning person, I have tried to be but its impossible for me. I usually go to bed at 11pm-12am during the weekdays since I work 8-5 M-F. But most nights I will either fall asleep fast and wake up around 2 or 3 and never go back to sleep, but just toss and turn for the rest of the night or I will not fall asleep at all. for the past few months I have not needed an alarm clock to get up in the morning but maybe just a handful of times because if I do end up sleeping I sleep from 1am-3am and toss and turn and look at the alarm clock for the rest of the night, so when its time to get up I'm already awake.

I'm going to the DR next week and I'm going to get a prescription for Lunessta or Ambien because I'm close to suicide here. The most sleep I've gotten in a night for the past few months was about 5 hours and that was on one occasion.

seriously, I'm not gonna kill myself, but never being able to sleep really really sucks and I refuse to take naps because I have tried so hard to get on a schedule of sleep but its impossible for me, even if I get drunk I cant sleep. I hope some prescription pills will help, otherwise I'm about to by a sleep number bed and that will cost about $5,000 but I think it would help and it would be worth it

maybe I should go with the tempurpedic bed then, I think they all have a trial period where you can return it. right now I'm willing to spend up to 5-7K for a bed I could sleep on. Honestly, I'm going to try Lunesta first before I buy an expensive bed, if this sleeping drug works well and isn't very addictive and can help me get on a regular sleep cycle I'll be happy with that, otherwise I'm willing to buy one of these expensive beds because I'm tired of tossing and turning every single night for hours and hours and going to work tired

Set the clock in your room back about three hours. Maybe you can fool yourself into thinking it's still too early for the sun to be up and fall back to sleep.

Just as a note, if you can get a doctor to write you a prescription for one you can write those beds off, assuming you meet the other requirements to write off medical expenses.

My alarm goes off at 0445. :( So days like today where I didn't have to go in to work today.... AND I stayed out LATE last night (had a few drinks - didn't get to bed until after 2). I woke up at 0630.

WTF! :cuss:

I managed to go back to sleep for about an hour. How pathetic.

Daily routine;

Up at 3:30 am.
Drink green tea, watch news, read until about 4:45 am. (have never tasted coffee)

Do my exercises until 5:30 am. Eat bowl of oatmeal, take shower and arrive at work at 6:30 am.

I spend the morning whistling and I can actually feel the spring in my step.

I worked off tours for many years, but I can tell it did not work well with my own body cycles. I've read some scary stuff about staying up all night and sleeping during the day. It's can be bad for your blood pressure and other health issues.

The key is to eat properly, exercise properly and get enough sleep (means going to bed a little earlier for me).

We keep our grandkids until about 7 pm each night so I have no problem getting to bed by 9:30 and getting 6 hours of good sleep. I always fall asleep within about a minute of hitting the pillow.

But that's just me....

maybe I should go with the tempurpedic bed then, I think they all have a trial period where you can return it. right now I'm willing to spend up to 5-7K for a bed I could sleep on. Honestly, I'm going to try Lunesta first before I buy an expensive bed, if this sleeping drug works well and isn't very addictive and can help me get on a regular sleep cycle I'll be happy with that, otherwise I'm willing to buy one of these expensive beds because I'm tired of tossing and turning every single night for hours and hours and going to work tired

We have a sleep number bed in our room and a Temperpedic bed in the guest room. Both seem good to me.
Don't take drugs or alchohol for sleep issues. That might make it worse. Your cells do not reconstruct properly - which is the purpose of sleep.

You might try taking melatonin (a naturelly occurring hormone in your body) supplement to see if that helps.

I needed it. Today's the first time I've felt good in over a week. 12-hour work days with no days off and 4-6 hours of sleep a night for a month finally caught up with me.

I'm not a morning person in any sense of the word. If I didn't have to work my sleep schedule would be from about 2am to 11am.

I read an article a while ago (canít vouch for its validity) that your sleep pattern is largely determined at the time of the day you were born.

For instance if you first seen light at 1am youíre bound to be a night person as opposed to someone who was born at say 8am. Could be total BS but interesting none the less.

I was born at 10:00 am. But I work 11am-11pm so my sleep is usually 2am-9am. Then I sleep in until noon on my days off! :)

Sometimes I am a morning person...sometimes I'm not. I would say if I got good sleep on a Tuesday night and got bad sleep on a wednesday night I would be a morning person that thursday morning. But two bad nights of sleep would make me a non morning person.

I was wondering if anyone would ever notice that I'm not on very much anymore.

No, I got done with finals a week before everyone else. I am at home now and back to working 40 hours. I am also playing softball in a few weeks for most of summer. So, I won't be on very much anymore. I get on here everyday, I just don't post very much anymore.

Yeah, if I get on during the day it's only for a few minutes just to see if there is anything going on. I wasn't even going to get on tonight but decided I wasn't ready to go to bed yet (don't have to work until 9:30 a.m).

I'll probably be on at night a few times a week. Just so you know I didn't die.

I'm ususally in bed anytime between 8 pm to 9:30 pm. I'm up every day between 3:30am to 4 am. I usually get to my office before 6 am and I usually get home anywhere between 4pm to 6pm.

Same routine every day. I spend morning time to read, meditate, do my workout, drink green tea and eat breakfast. And poop.

I rarely use an alarm clock. Just get up when I wake up. Feels ok to me, so I guess I must be a morning person.

I get out of bed every morning for three reasons;

1. I have to pee
2. I have to poop.
3. I have a raging hard on.

If just one of these things is missing, I could sleep to noon.

Not at all. I get tired after dinner...rest...then around 11 PM I'm just wide awake. I love being up between midnight and 2 AM.

I'm NEVER able to function until after 10AM and can't eat until then even if I HAVE to get up earlier.

Not really a morning person. My work schedule has some flexibility to it so I normally don't get in till 9:00.

Even when I'm up in the morning on a Sat or Sun morning, I'd rather sit, drink coffee, and relax than get into anything too serious at that time of day.

At my old work, I used to work 8-6, and everyone there would make fun of me and tell me if you asked me a question at 8 you'd get an answer at noon.

Mornings hurt. I don't know about other people, but if I have to wake up in the morning, for the first few hours I feel like I've been up all night partying, whether I've slept 4 hours or 10.

When I have it my way, I'll drift awake at around 10AM, realize the sun is still on the wrong side of the earth, and drift back asleep for a couple more hours.
