Bạn đang xem: The best hours to sleep


At 9:00pm I stop whatever I’m doing, whether I’m working in the workshop, eating dinner, or hanging out with friends. (I’m like Cinderella at midnight… but at 9:00pm.) At 10:00pm the lights are out, & I’m in bed with my eyes closed.

Most of my life I was a night owl, so it surprised me that I could change. Now I lượt thích to “sleep early, rise early” lượt thích the birds do.

Abi và I try lớn maximize our relaxation time together before bed as much as possible, because it’s so good to have a long laugh before you sleep. Sometimes Abi & I are so excited by a new commission that we can’t stop talking pillow to lớn pillow in the dark, but we try not to lớn push it later than 11:00pm. We love what we do, và so work feels more like playtime.

Wilf Richards · Coop Co-Founder


I have an alarm set for 9:00pm to lớn get myself ready for bed, và another alarm phối for 9:30 lớn get into bed. Usually, a bit of reading and then lights out by 10:00pm is ideal.

I aim khổng lồ get 10 hours in bed every night, & within that eight hours of sleep. So being in bed between 9:30pm and 7:30am is amazing and fully recharges me for the day. No afternoon naps are required. It has always taken me a while khổng lồ get lớn sleep, so a long time ago I started listening to lớn radio comedy (I always look forward to anything by John Finnemore) or audio stories in bed lớn get me to sleep. The most important characteristic of something I listen to before going khổng lồ bed is that it must be something that I have listened lớn before, but that my brain will still enjoy listening khổng lồ one more time.


Josh Gross · Founding Partner at Planetary


Midnight. It’s terrible. I really should go khổng lồ bed a bit earlier because I typically wake up feeling a bit tired, but I have trouble convincing myself to go to lớn bed sooner. Really, I’ve tried.


Melissa Clark · new york Times Food Writer


Between 10:30pm and midnight.


Paul Murphy · Third Grade Teacher


I love the night life. I got khổng lồ boogie. Well, not so much boogie, but I do like staying up late và sitting on things.

When I’m being productive, I stay up too late reading và writing. Teacher Habits requires a fair amount of effort, & I write books for teachers. Those keep me busy, and I tend khổng lồ be at my most creative late at night. When I’m not productive, I squander time staring at my phone và getting angry at idiots on Twitter or Facebook. Or I sit in the basement and watch Netflix or YouTube on the big screen. I’m usually in bed between 11:00pm and midnight.


Denise Lee · Founder of Alala


If I am in a good flow where I’m consciously protecting my time, I go to sleep at 10:00pm & wake up at 6:00am. Of course, there are some days where this doesn’t happen, but I try khổng lồ get into bed before midnight every night.


Amy Nelson · CEO of The Riveter


By 10:00pm at the absolute latest. Often around 9:00 or 9:30pm.


Rick Smith · Founder & CEO, Axon


I usually fall asleep between 10:30 and 11:30pm. I’m not super dogmatic about my schedule. It’s more important that I spend time with my kids, tuck them into bed, & spend some unique time with my wife before settling in.


George Foreman III · Retired Professional Boxer


Between 11:00pm and midnight, but if I have an idea or a problem that I need lớn solve, I’ll often stay up until 4:00am or later.


Carly Stein · Founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals


Generally between 11:00pm & 12:30am.


Shirley Meerson · Wellness Coach


Between 10:00-10:30pm, but before that time I begin my sleep hygiene routine in stages. First I cut off and dim the lights in certain rooms and begin to wind down… my phone is off by 9:00pm.


Hayley Leibson · Serial Entrepreneur


I try khổng lồ go khổng lồ sleep by 11:00pm. Over the past two years, I’ve found what really helps my sleep chất lượng is to stop using my phone and laptop at least an hour before going to lớn sleep.

I try khổng lồ read a book for an hour before going lớn sleep. I used lớn only read non-fiction, but now I’m incorporating more fiction into my reading list. I love using Goodreads khổng lồ find new books recommended by friends. I also subscribe to Scribd, a digital library, ebook, và audiobook subscription service with over a million titles. I’m currently reading Educated by Tara Westover for my friend’s book club next week, The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz, & Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom và Responsibility by Patty McCord.


Sarah Morgan · Digital Strategist


I’m generally in bed around 10:00pm, và I read until I’m tired (around 11:00pm).


Tina McCorkindale · President/CEO, Institute for PR


Normally about 10:30-11:00pm, but when I travel it’s closer to lớn midnight or 1:00am. I definitely need lớn work on getting better sleep, because it’s so important.


Sam Crawford · Blogger, The Man Blueprint


I try khổng lồ get khổng lồ bed before 10:00pm each night, which I’m usually pretty good about. I can’t remember the last time I went to lớn bed past midnight except for the odd night out.

I’ve found that when I go to bed on the same day I wake up, I’m asking for trouble.


Jean Chatzky · Financial Editor, The Today Show


It depends on what time I wake up. When I’m getting up consistently at 5:00am, I have trouble making it until 10:00pm.


Gideon Akande · Celebrity Fitness Trainer


There are always obstacles in getting to lớn bed (catching up with my girlfriend after a long day, unwinding while watching a sports game, reviewing text messages and emails), but my goal is to get khổng lồ bed by 10:00pm.

Being an entrepreneur, I rarely have “down-time”—I’m usually putting out fires or working on goal-specific tasks longer than I’d lượt thích to be, but I still realize how important rest is. On average, I make my 10:00pm bedtime 75 percent of the time.


Mara Schiavocampo · Emmy Award-Winning Journalist


Generally, I go to lớn sleep around 11:00pm, which is part of what makes waking up so difficult. If I went to lớn bed at 9:30pm, I’d be much better off. There’s no good reason for me to lớn be up. I just have trouble going lớn sleep early because I have lots of energy at night.


Josh LaJaunie · Runner


I’m usually in bed by 8:00pm. (I have no kids.)


Lauren Berger · Founder of Intern Queen


Pretty late—I’m a night owl. Usually between 11:30pm và 1:00am. I’ve always been a night owl và done pretty well on 5-7 hours of sleep per night. But I try lớn catch up on sleep over the weekends either by sleeping in or by taking naps.


Sabrina Zohar · Co-Founder of Softwear


I try khổng lồ get to lớn bed by midnight, but these days it’s inching closer to 1:00am. Sleep means the world to me, but often I go down the rabbit hole và work through dinner và well into the evening. I like to “unwind” from work prior khổng lồ going khổng lồ bed, so I usually spend thirty minutes reading or watching mindless TV lớn take my mind off things & get ready khổng lồ hit the hay.


Khajak Keledjian · Founder of Inscape


I go to lớn bed at 10:30pm & my eyes are closed between 10:45 & 11:00.


Liz Fosslien · Illustrator


Between 11:00 and 11:30pm. If I’ve felt tired all day, I’ll make a point khổng lồ be in bed by 10:00pm.


Tara Hanrahan · Corporate spa làm đẹp Director


I don’t have a specific time, but for the past year I’ve averaged seven hours of sleep a night (thank you Fitbit for measuring that!), so it would be around 10:00pm that I go lớn sleep.


Jules Clancy · Cookbook Author


I have a reminder set to shower at 9:20pm, và I aim lớn be asleep before 10:00pm. I’ve been experimenting with reducing the amount of time I spend in bed, & it’s really helped with my sleep problems.


Catherine Duc · Grammy-Nominated Composer


I aim for 11:00pm, but it usually ends up being midnight because I get sidetracked doing music-related things.


Robert Greene · Author


Before the stroke I would go to bed at around 11:00pm, sometimes a little bit later. Since the stroke I’ve found myself getting tired earlier và I’ve gotten into the habit of going to bed at around 10:30pm or so.


Nicole Gibbons · Interior Designer


Typically around midnight lớn 1:00am. I’m more of a night owl than a morning person.


Sam Conniff Allende · Serial Entrepreneur


Between 10:00-11:00pm, usually. I aim to lớn get 6-7 hours of sleep as often as possible.


Jeremy Anderberg · Editor & Podcast Producer


My wife và I, as a rule, go lớn bed at the same time. It’s a rule that’s been broken just a handful of times in seven years, và I think it’s a great rule for couples. Since we’re up so early, và we’re cognizant of our sleep needs, we’re in bed at 9:00pm khổng lồ read or chat for fifteen-twenty minutes, & then lights out. Our recent purchase of a sound machine has made our sleep far deeper; it’s been a pretty amazing difference actually.


Sabrina Hall · Multidisciplinary Designer


Between 11:00pm & midnight.


Dempsey Marks · Personal Trainer


I try khổng lồ be in bed by 10:30pm every night. Obviously some nights I stay up a bit later, but I’ve realized that there isn’t really a point to lớn staying up for the sake of staying up (which I used to do a lot). I’d rather go to bed early & feel fresh in the morning than stay awake until 1:00am.


Zara Terez Tisch · Co-Founder of Terez


One of my favorite things to vày is watch television, movies, etc. It’s how I turn my brain off. My favorite show of all time is Sons of Anarchy, like I wish I was in an “MC.” For my thirtieth birthday, David got me my own cut so I could feel lượt thích I was a part of the crew. Even though that’s my favorite show, typically my favorites consist of historical European time periods with or without fantasy—everything from The Tudors khổng lồ Game of Thrones.

So, I will hopefully get in bed at around 10:00pm, but not fall asleep until about 12:30am.


Professor M.S. Rao · International Leadership Guru


Usually 10:00pm.


Susan Lin · Lead hàng hóa Designer, Cloudflare


In theory, between 10:00 và 11:00pm. In reality, anywhere between 11:00pm and 1:00am. I feel guilty about it, though. I once stayed up until 2:00am lớn finish an enthralling book. Reading fiction before bed is not a great idea when you can’t stop.


Dr. Anthony Youn · Plastic Surgeon


I typically go to lớn bed around 11:00pm, và then I read in bed for 15-20 minutes prior to lớn falling asleep.


Danette May · Health & Mindfulness Expert


My body typically starts to wind down around 8:30pm, and that’s when I’m ready lớn light a few candles, do some stretching, tuck my girls into bed, and relax. By 9:30 or 10:00pm, I’m usually sound asleep.


Jamie Melzer · Fruit Jerky Entrepreneur


My bedtime is 10:00pm on Sunday through Thursday, but my bedtime routine starts at 8:15pm, after I put my daughter down for the night. I have an evening skincare routine that I adopted from a spa in Naples while on vacation that makes me feel lượt thích I’ve had a mini facial every night (and supposedly helps with anti-aging… but kiểm tra back with me in five years).

I’ll then crawl into bed và spend fifteen minutes checking thư điện tử and responding to lớn any work-related social media. I could literally spend the next two hours scrolling through Instagram, so I have a hard stop at 9:00pm. I spend the next hour reading and/or watching Netflix; not staring at a phone or computer screen helps me decompress before bed. At 10:00pm the lights are off & I’m asleep within ten minutes.


Suzanne Gibbs Howard · Dean of IDEO U


Sometime between 11:00pm và midnight. My days are hectic straight through until my daughter goes khổng lồ sleep and I wrap up any work. I need a little time to lớn relax and wind down in the evening before trying to lớn sleep. This might be a glass of wine, spending time with my husband, or even going out for a weeknight social sự kiện with friends.


John Jantsch · Small Business marketing Consultant


Always before 10:00pm, often between 9:00-9:30pm. Early in my entrepreneurial journey I would work at night after the kids went khổng lồ bed. Now I read & relax a lot more. As I’ve gotten older I don’t plan much that keeps me up or out.


Jake Knapp · Productivity Author


I usually start going to lớn bed at 11:00pm. Sometimes I stay up a little later. If I’m up past midnight, there’s trouble for me the next day.


Ashley Eckstein · Actress, Fangirl Trendsetter


This varies, but in a perfect world, I would get to lớn bed no later than 10:00pm. Unfortunately, it’s usually closer to 11:00pm. I’m constantly traveling, so my bedtime is constantly changing. I’m always on airplanes, so thank goodness I can sleep on planes! I’m really good at it, actually! I make sure lớn get a window seat và bring a full-size pillow, blanket, và scarf. Then I practically wrap myself up in a cocoon, và I’m usually asleep before take-off.


Krista Suh · Activist, Screenwriter


I go to lớn bed around midnight.


Kim Leutwyler · Painter


I go khổng lồ bed around 2:00am, give or take an hour.


Ashley Turchin · Co-Founder of ANTHOM


My friends and family always joke that I’m an Energizer Bunny that gets unplugged at 10:00pm. I’m going, going, going, and then, BAM, Ashley’s done! In general, I try khổng lồ be in bed by 10:30 & asleep by 11:00.


Julien Smith · CEO of Breather, Author


I always go khổng lồ sleep at 10:30 or 11:00pm at the latest. I have epilepsy (I used to lớn have seizures), so I need at least eight hours of sleep or else the rest of my life goes all over the place.


Ainsley Earhardt · Co-Host of Fox và Friends


I try to lớn go to bed around 9:00pm… but that never happens. My daughter likes khổng lồ stay up as late as possible—she gets that from me. I’m a night owl & I love alone time when the house is finally quiet.

However, sometimes Hayden fights going khổng lồ sleep. Her bedtime is between 7:30-8:00pm. We brush her teeth, pick out books lớn read, and say prayers. We thank God every night for all the people we love, và I pray specifically about her future, friends, teachers, that she comes khổng lồ know the Lord at an early age, và even her husband và their (God-willing) many children. It’s my favorite time of the day. But then she fights going lớn sleep. She is smart and tries khổng lồ negotiate for one more book or song. When she was a newborn baby, I played Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling in Love every night. I would hold her with her head on my shoulder & dance slowly around the room. Well, now she wants khổng lồ listen khổng lồ it every night, except she insists on watching Elvis perform the song on stage (on YouTube). She tries to lớn coerce me into letting her watch it, và it’s hard lớn say no, considering that it reminds me of her first few weeks of life (what a precious time).


Des Traynor · Co-Founder of Intercom


At 11:45pm, with a good consistency. It’s the “bedtime” setting on my phone. The only exceptions would be nights out, when it’s anyone’s guess when I kết thúc up in bed.


Mitch Joel · Founder of Six Pixels Group


We put the kids down, và then I just hang out in bed doing things on the computer, whether it’s Netflix, YouTube, or writing. On a typical night I fall asleep somewhere between 10:00 và 11:00pm.


Esmé Weijun Wang · Novelist


Between 8:00-10:00pm.


Ali Bonar · Co-Founder of Kween


My party-girl college-self is rolling over in her grave—I’m so boring now. Since I’m up so early, I go khổng lồ sleep no later than 10:30 or 11:00pm. Yes, I’m serious.


Cal Newport · Author, Georgetown University Professor


I try to be in bed by 9:30 with the goal of being asleep by 10:00-10:30pm.


Jacqueline Claudia · Founder, CEO of LoveTheWild


I’m usually asleep by 9:00pm. Lame, I know. I’m just mentally and physically exhausted by that time.


Aubrey Marcus · CEO of Onnit


1:30am.


Benjamin Hardy · Author, PhD candidate


Short answer, when my wife lets me. I lượt thích sleeping from 9:00pm to lớn 5:00am, but my wife likes 10:30pm to 6:00am. So we go to bed sometime between 9:00 và 10:30pm. Our kids sleep a solid 10-12 hours with the oldest going to bed at 7:00pm on nights he doesn’t have sports. This has been both healthy for the kids and healthy for us as we have time lớn unwind before our own early bedtime.


Derik Mills · Founder, CEO of YogaGlo


My wife và I aim khổng lồ be in bed between 9:30-9:45pm. I find that sleeping during the hours between 10:00pm và midnight is more rejuvenating than getting extra hours of sleep in the morning. Ideally, I sleep from 10:00pm to 6:00am. That seems khổng lồ be what my body needs. But it’s not uncommon that something for work keeps me from getting lớn bed until closer to the 11:00pm-midnight range.


Eliza Blank · Founder, CEO of The Sill


Hopefully by 11:00pm. And quite honestly, when I have the opportunity to lớn go to lớn bed earlier, I take it every time. I have no problem getting into bed at 9:30pm. I’ve never been a night owl. I always get too tired!


Judge Jeremy Fogel · Senior U.S. District Judge


Between 10:00 & 10:30pm.


Joel Gascoigne · Co-Founder and CEO of Buffer


Usually around 10:30pm.


Julie Zhuo · VP of sản phẩm Design, Facebook


I try lớn have my head hit the pillow at 11:00pm. I don’t always succeed—I’m a bit of a night owl, so I have a lot of energy at night, and often when I’m doing something I just want lớn keep doing it.

Sometimes I lượt thích to read books và do a lot of stuff at night, so I feel lượt thích my body resists going khổng lồ bed. I bởi very much try to lớn go lớn sleep at 11:00pm, but this realistically happens between 11:00 & 11:30pm.


Vanessa Van Edwards · Behavioral Investigator


Around 10:30pm.


Lily Percy · Executive Producer


I’m in bed by 10:30pm, and usually asleep by 11:00.


Lior Arussy · CEO of Strativity


Around 10:30pm. I try khổng lồ keep to Eastern Standard Time even when traveling to lớn combat some of the effects of jet lag.


Brent Gleeson · Navy SEAL Veteran


As much as I would lượt thích to maintain a rigid sleep schedule, it is difficult while traveling. When I am at home, I try khổng lồ be in bed by 9:00pm. I know—it’s not very cool, but that’s when my wife và I can have uninterrupted time to read, watch TV, or catch up. I’m asleep by 10:00pm. When traveling, I try lớn maintain a similar schedule as I navigate multiple time zones.


Christy Wright · Founder of Business Boutique


I go lớn sleep between 9:30-10:15pm.


Whitney Johnson · Leading Management Thinker


Between 9:00-10:00pm.


Corbett Barr · Independent Entrepreneur


Around 12:30am.


Grant Faulkner · Executive Director of NaNoWriMo


Last summer, I went back to lớn Iowa, where I grew up, & when I returned lớn Berkeley, I told my wife (Heather Mackey, who is also a writer) that I was going to lớn stay on Midwestern (Central) Time. So nowadays I go lớn bed at 9:00 or 10:00pm (and even sometimes at 8:30pm on days when I wake up super early). I’m so exhausted và unproductive at night that I figure I might as well use that time khổng lồ sleep so that I can maximize the time I have in the morning for my most creative energy.


Melanie Deziel · Branded-Content Strategist


I could be better about creating a more predictable bedtime, but I’m usually in bed around 11:00pm, và almost never after midnight. I really try to lớn listen lớn my body toàn thân and go lớn sleep when I feel tired, so if I’m staying up later than 11:00, it’s because I’m feeling energized và on a roll with something I’m working on. As soon as I start lớn feel tired, I start getting ready for bed.

I don’t vị well when I don’t get good sleep. I feel foggy, và honestly, a little grumpy. So getting to lớn sleep at a good hour is important for me. Knowing I’m getting up around 7:15am, I try khổng lồ make sure I’m going lớn get at least seven hours, but I often shoot for eight.


Bob Guest · Entrepreneur, xe đạp Rider


Depends on who you ask… My wife would say I’m in bed by 8:00pm every night. I guess there are nights when it’s true that I’m happy lớn get in bed at 8:30pm with a book and fall asleep. But I’d say my more normal bedtime is around 9:30pm. On Monday nights, when I know I’m waking up at 4:45am, I might say goodnight early. On Wednesday nights, when I have my chorus practice, I don’t get lớn bed until almost 11:00pm (that’s a long day).

Of course, much of my morning routine depends on what happens the night before: how late I stayed up, what I was doing, how much I drank, how I slept, etc. When I need to switch things up in the morning because of any given factor, I allow myself to vày that.


Kara Goldin · Founder of Hint Inc


My day starts bright và early, so I try khổng lồ get to bed by 10:00pm.


Kevin Warren · Chief Commercial Officer, Xerox


On average, 11:30pm.


David Gallo · Media, Set, & Production Designer


Usually around 3:30am. I hate sleeping & put it off as long as I can. My mom was always the same way. I could call her on the phone at 3:00am và be pretty confident that I wouldn’t wake her up.


Jing Wei · Illustrator


I often have a hard time falling asleep, so I usually go khổng lồ bed around 12:30am và expect to lớn fall asleep around 1:00-1:30am.


Onicia Muller · Writer và Comedian


No matter what time I go to lớn bed, my brain turns on around 6:00am. The only question is whether or not I’m functional when that happens. I try khổng lồ go khổng lồ sleep between 9:00-9:30pm. I can pull off going khổng lồ bed at 10:30pm for at most three nights a week before I become useless in the morning. I don’t drink coffee or energy drinks, so going to lớn bed at 11:00pm or later always ends in disaster.


Steven Heller · MFA thiết kế Program Co-Chair, SVA


It depends on how tired I am or if there is something good on TV. I usually try khổng lồ turn in at around 10:00-10:30pm, but I often cannot fall asleep until after 11:00pm.


Tracy Chou · Entrepreneur, Diversity Advocate


Around midnight.


Lindsay Champion · YA Author


On a good night, 10:30pm. On a not-so-good night (read: at least half the time, who am I kidding?), somewhere between 11:00pm và midnight. I can feel normal on anywhere between six & eight hours, but I try lớn get at least seven as often as I can.


L’Oreal Thompson Payton · Blogger, Freelance Writer


I try to lớn go lớn bed by 10:30pm so I can get a full eight hours of sleep, but it’s more often around 11:00 or so. I need lớn get better about unplugging before bedtime.


Joshua Spodek · Author, Adjunct Professor


I set an alarm for 10:00pm to lớn get ready for bed. I usually fall asleep between 11:30pm & midnight.


Melanie Elturk · Founder of Haute Hijab


Between 10:00 và 11:00pm.


Hilary Matheson · Ultrarunner, Climber


I try khổng lồ get at least seven and a half hours of sleep a night, which means I’m in bed with the lights out by 11:30pm. When I need to be up earlier, I work backwards with my bedtime so that I consistently keep those seven and a half hours reserved for sleep.


Jason Vo · Publisher


It fluctuates. I make an effort khổng lồ be in bed by 10:30pm, but that doesn’t always work out too well. Sometimes I succeed, but most of the time I’m asleep by 12:00am or 12:30am. I wish I were as disciplined about going to lớn bed as I am about waking up by 6:30am. On average, I’d say I get about 6-7 hours of sleep each night, which I guess is still good.


Samir Becic · Fitness Expert


Between 9:00-10:00pm.


Christina Wayne · CEO of Assembly Entertainment


I try lớn go to bed by 10:00pm each night. I feel like crap if I go to bed any later. Realistically, I go to sleep more often by 10:30pm because I get sucked into returning emails for work or reading about something on Facebook or re-writing these answers for you.


Ritu Narayan · CEO of Zūm


Usually by 11:00-11:30pm.


Josh Haynam · Co-Founder of Interact


Nine o’clock at night, unless I’m attending an sự kiện that goes later. I’m basically a forty-seven-year-old living in a twenty-five-year-old’s body.


Meredith Laurence · The xanh Jean Chef


I think about bed at 10:00pm, & hopefully lights are out by 11:00pm. Never after midnight unless work has kept me up.


Dr. Roshini Raj · Gastroenterologist, Internist


I try khổng lồ go khổng lồ bed by 10:00pm at the latest. I take at least half an hour lớn wind down with no electronics before bed. I love mystery novels và find it soothing lớn read for a bit before going to lớn sleep.


Carolyn Feinstein · CMO, Dropbox


I try to lớn go to sleep by 11:00pm, but it’s often a lot later. I’ve found that as my kids’ bedtimes have gotten later, mine has too.


Drew Logan · Fitness Expert, Trainer


I shut everything down at 9:00pm & start making my way through my nighttime routine. I’m in bed by 9:45pm at the latest, và sound asleep by 9:50!


Melanie Travis · CEO, Andie Swim


I try to be in bed by 11:00pm. I need a full eight hours khổng lồ be totally functional. But I grew up in New York, and my wife & I both have vibrant social lives, so all too often we’re on the subway at midnight coming trang chủ from something & dreading the morning alarm.


Todd Davis · Executive Vice President, FranklinCovey


I’m fortunate in that I don’t require a lot of sleep. Six hours seems to work well for me. So, I watch my late-night talk shows for a few laughs, go to lớn bed around midnight, and wake up at 6:00am (well, 5:58am, to be exact).


Gail Saltz · Psychiatrist, Author


Most nights I’m in bed around 10:00pm, chatting with my husband và maybe watching some comedy, which we enjoy. It is lights out anywhere from 10:30pm to 11:00pm. My husband gets up at around 5:30am lớn get lớn work at his hospital, so we both prefer to go khổng lồ bed early enough to get a good night’s sleep.


Sean Conlon · Real Estate Entrepreneur


Usually around half-past midnight, if I’m lucky! Because I’m constantly traveling and always on the go, I often find myself too busy working to lớn go lớn bed any earlier.


Matthew Weatherley-White · Managing Director, The CAPROCK Group


The flipside to being a morning person is that I am usually asleep before 10:30pm. Strangely, I have no problem staying awake, which could be an after-effect of adventure racing & mountaineering (my soldier friends have the same capacity). But I prefer lớn sleep before I am groggy with need, so an early-ish bedtime is definitely preferred.


Rick Popowitz · Serial Health Entrepreneur


Between 10:00pm & midnight depending on if I am binge-watching a series on Amazon Prime or Netflix. At the same time I am also scanning about fifty curated sites on Flipboard for articles lớn give me ideas for new products và businesses or khổng lồ get a sense of how the public may feel about one issue or another. Articles that I find useful professionally are then emailed to a team of people I rely on around the world khổng lồ get them thinking. I also use Flipboard to lớn stay abreast of subject matter that personally interests me.

I end the day in much the same way as I started. I use the Echo Dot to go to lớn sleep with a playlist of either classical or new age bedtime music.

Starting và ending the day with an Echo Dot shows that we actually live in a circular fashion. This is the lesson for me: there is no separation in life, only twists & turns that eventually all lead back to the continuum of the circle.


Celeste Headlee · Radio Host, Author


I’m in bed by 9:00pm.


Allison Grayce · Designer, Parent


I usually get to bed by 11:30pm & fall asleep around 12:00am.


Kristen Ulmer · Fear Specialist

Tami Halton Pardee · #1 Real Estate Broker in Los Angeles


I usually go to sleep around 10:00pm. Sometimes, I’ll fall asleep with my kids at around 8:00pm.


Jenny Blake · Author, Career/Business Strategist


If left to my own devices, I love going lớn bed as early as 8:30pm, which most of my friends make fun of me for. I’m the opposite of a vampire. If I go out to lớn an sự kiện or dinner with friends, I’m usually asleep by 10 or 11:00pm. I look forward khổng lồ quiet mornings so much, before the rest of the world is awake, that I really prioritize what time I go to lớn sleep. I don’t have FOMO for nighttime parties, I have it for the glorious mornings I might miss out on if I stay up too late.

I find that at night I’m usually just watching TV if I stay up late, which is not worth the tradeoff. I far prefer to sleep, followed by feeling alert and rested in the morning during my reading & meditation. Starting off that way improves the whole tone of the day!


James p. Owen · Forty-Year Wall Street Veteran


10:00pm on the dot, every night.


Tiffany Cruikshank · Yoga, Meditation, và Wellness Expert


Usually around 10:00pm, give or take an hour.


Tammy Strobel · Writer, Photographer


Typically, I go khổng lồ sleep between 8:30 and 9:00pm. I love reading before I go khổng lồ bed. Snuggling under the covers with my cats và a good book is the best feeling.


Hitha Palepu · Writer, Entrepreneur


When I’m not out in the evenings, I’m in bed by 9:30pm và reading for 30-45 minutes.


Jillian Michaels · Health, Wellness, Fitness Expert


Usually around 11:00pm. My kids go khổng lồ bed at 8:00pm. I then spend time with my partner, Heidi; finish off whatever work is left from the day that didn’t get done; watch one show; and listen lớn a book or podcast to fall asleep.


Ravi Raman · Executive Career Coach


The key to lớn waking up early in the morning is going khổng lồ bed early in the evening! During the winter, I’m in bed by 8:30pm và I fall asleep by 9:00pm. During the summer, with more hours of daylight, I tend lớn be in bed by 9:30pm và asleep by 10:00pm.


Simon Enever · Co-Founder of Quip


I pass out around 11:00pm. I’m an early riser, so I try to go khổng lồ bed on the earlier side.


Wendy McKennon · Head of UX, Color


I’m usually in bed by 11:00pm.


Mick Batyske · DJ, Parent


I try to go lớn bed around 11:00pm or 12:00am. If I can lie down in bed with a book at 10:00pm, I’m the happiest person ever.


Nick Tasler · Organizational Psychologist, Columnist


I go to sleep at 9:00pm almost every night of the week. Even on those weekend nights when we happen khổng lồ be at a fiesta, or when I’m with friends that I haven’t seen for a while and I really want to get after it lượt thích we did in the Glory Days… yeah, no. Doesn’t happen. I turn into a pumpkin by 10:00pm at the absolute latest. No exceptions.


Caroline Burckle · U.S. Olympic Medalist Swimmer


9:00pm at the latest during the week!


Jenna Tanenbaum · Founder, GreenBlender


I know what you’re thinking - I’m not a morning person because I go khổng lồ sleep late. Not true. I am a sleepaholic and lượt thích to get between 8-10 hours of sleep every night. That means I am typically in bed by 10:30pm.


Mike Vardy · Founder of Productivityist


I am a night owl, so my bedtime is usually around 1:00am. I want to lớn get in at least 4 full sleep cycles in so if I don’t go khổng lồ bed by that time then I won’t be able lớn function the next day.


Leen Al Zaben · Writer, Food Stylist, Photographer


I want to say 10:00pm, but that never happens. I lượt thích to take some quiet time to read or write in my journal before going to sleep. I find that it’s a good way to lớn disconnect from my day & get a good night’s sleep.


Nikki Pechet · VP of Marketing, Thumbtack


It varies. I am a huge believer in sleep being an essential ingredient to happiness & health, but I have to be realistic about when I get it. I limit myself lớn two late bedtimes a week, where I may not get to lớn sleep until midnight. I counterbalance that with two nights a week where I go lớn bed by around 9:00pm (I always try for 8:00pm, but it doesn’t happen), and then aim for 10:00pm other nights.


May Boeve · Executive Director of 350.org


Usually before 10:30pm.


Stephanie Lee · Writer for Lifehacker, Men’s Health


The frequency of my travels messes up my sleep schedule, so it depends.

I usually go to bed between 11:00pm & 1:00am, but I strive to lớn be in bed before midnight. I’ve discovered that my sleep pattern is really subject to the environment và its pacing. In Tokyo & Hong Kong, where there was hardly a difference between 6:00pm và midnight, I picked up night owl habits just because everyone else seemed to lớn be up late at night. When I was in Boise, Idaho, & the North Shore of O’ahu, I automatically went khổng lồ bed around 10:00pm.


Zane Bevan · Creative Director at Robinhood


This varies drastically. When I’m lucky, I’m asleep by midnight. On the not so lucky ones, I’m still wide awake at 3:00am.

Usually if this happens I head into the living room và pull out my sketchbook. I find that if I can work out the ideas that are keeping me up, I can convince myself to lớn stop thinking about it và fall asleep. To lớn be honest, most ideas that keep me up aren’t worth revisiting in the light of day.


Bedros Keuilian · Founder, CEO of Fit toàn thân Boot Camp


At 10:00pm, same time every night. This is just as important as waking up at the same time every morning. Lượt thích I said, the human body toàn thân wants consistency.


Todd Henry · Bestselling Author


I am in bed between 10:00pm & 10:30pm every weeknight.


Amanda Hesser · Co-Founder and CEO of Food52


I used to lớn be such a night owl và wouldn’t become productive until about 11:00pm, after which I would happily work until 2:00am. That made for some very rough mornings and mid-afternoon productivity dips.

About three years ago this changed suddenly và drastically. I found myself much less resilient without a good night’s sleep và I simply got tired earlier. At first I thought I was dying, of course, but over time I’ve come lớn appreciate my new internal clock. It’s actually forced me into a much healthier sleep pattern. Now I’m in bed by 10-10:30pm và asleep by 11:00.


Merrill Stubbs · Co-Founder và President of Food52


Most nights I’m in bed around 10:30pm. I answer emails, catch up on news & social media, and maybe read a few pages of my book before turning off my light around 11:30pm.

If I’m very tired I may go lớn sleep a little earlier; on nights when I’m behind on work and/or life it can be much later; closer lớn 1:00am.


Shawna Kaminski · Fitness Coach


I need to lớn be in my room by 9:00pm, hopefully in bed và reading. Lights out by about 9:30pm.


Christine Koh · Lifestyle Expert, Parent


I love sleeping. I don’t believe anyone who says they only need four hours of sleep! I try khổng lồ get in bed by 10:00pm. I love getting eight hours a night, but when possible, I love getting nine hours a night even more!


Sahara Rose · Holistic & Ayurvedic Nutritionist


I’m currently writing my second book, The Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda, and my creative juices really start flowing once the sun has set, so I’ve been sleeping quite late recently but normally I try to lớn sleep by midnight.


Terri Schneider · Endurance Athlete, Author


On a usual day, after stretching, I get in bed between 8:30 và 9:30pm. I will then read or watch a Netflix/Hulu option on my ipad tablet until I get sleepy. When I start lớn get sleepy I turn it all off và sleep.

I am a classic early-to-bed, early-to-rise person, & my patterns are affected by the sunrise and sunset, which I enjoy because it feels primal và natural.


Emily trắng · Founding Partner at Collective Entertainment


During peak business weeks I often go to sleep between 6:00-9:00pm. I know this is insane, but waking between 3:00-6:00am allows me to work on projects in the still of the morning without interruption. I highly recommend it for focusing on certain projects for a set amount of time.


Erin Loechner · Author, Parent


The second my littles are in bed, I follow. This is usually somewhere between 7:00 và 8:30pm, hopefully! I’m definitely an early-to-bed type.


Erika Serow · President and US CEO, Sweaty Betty


I aspire to lớn go lớn sleep before 11:00pm, but more realistically, it’s closer to midnight.


Guy Tal · Landscape và Nature Photographer


Most nights I’ll go to lớn bed early (9-10:00pm), knowing that I am a very light sleeper và will likely wake up multiple times during the night. I’m also prone lớn episodes of insomnia and on some days I may not go to sleep at all.


Nick Onken · Photographer, Podcast Host


Ideally, 11:00pm or midnight. Depends on the day/week/events going on in my life. Life in new york can lead lớn some late nights when there are events.


Mauricio F. Corridan · Photographer


I usually go lớn sleep between 12:00 and 1:00am, but sometimes I stay up a little later working or planning upcoming projects.

I used khổng lồ be a night owl & would spend late nights editing pictures; now I prefer doing this early in the morning, but depending on my week và schedule, I will edit in either the mornings or the evenings.


Vanessa Garcia · Multidisciplinary Artist


I try khổng lồ go to lớn sleep by 11:00pm, but this really doesn’t happen very often. The reality is that I’m usually asleep by midnight, staying up a little later some nights than others.


Erin Motz · Co-Founder of Bad Yogi


The exact time fluctuates, but I try to be asleep by midnight.


Danny Gregory · Artist, Author


I go lớn bed around 10-10:30pm. Then I read for half an hour.

I fall asleep almost immediately but I’m not a great sleeper và at least once a week I wake up at 3:30am or so và can’t get back khổng lồ sleep. I usually read my Kindle which has a soft glow & won’t disturb my wife. Sometimes, I’ll wake up with an idea that keeps batting around my skull and I’ll get up & go out lớn sit at my desk và write it down. That usually gets it out of my head & quiets the voice. Most of the time, when I reread the idea in the morning, it’s crap.


Liesl Gibson · Pattern Designer


Never early enough. I try khổng lồ get into bed by 11:00pm & do a little reading before going khổng lồ sleep, but I’m really a night person so it’s easy to get wrapped up in something & forget to lớn go to lớn bed on time.

I tend lớn wake up really early in the morning (4:00am seems to lớn be my spot), so I listen to a podcast or something to lớn settle my brain & try to get back khổng lồ sleep again. This restlessness means I need to be in bed for longer than eight hours if I’m going khổng lồ get enough sleep!


Steph Davis · không tính tiền Soloist, Wingsuit BASE Jumper


Usually not too long after dark or sometimes even before dark in summer when the days are so long.

Lisa Nicole Bell · Writer, Producer, Podcast Host


Usually between 11:00pm & midnight. I let my body be the guide. If I find myself falling asleep or feeling drowsy at 9:30pm, I’ll honor that and give my mind and toàn thân the extra rest.
