I go to bed when I am sleepy. It varies. Since I am retired, there's time now, time enough at last.

I've been the same for decades.

I go to bed around 8pm and read for a couple hours.

I get up around 5-6 am naturally. If I go to bed at 2am...... I still get up around 6am.

In bed before 10:30, up at 5:45.

On weekends I'm often up till 1:00 AM and wake up around 8:00.

I'm so relieved not to have to follow schedules anymore. I've always despised having to live by a clock.

Most of the time I go to bed between eleven and twelve. Then there will be that occasional night when I'm tired out and go earlier.

Those poll options are awfully limited and skewed very low. Average bedtimes for adults are 10-12, roughly.

Being unemployed right now I stay up pretty late. Working I was in bed by 10 PM but now I'm sometimes up till 12-1 AM. And sometimes it depends on whether I've had a nap that day. My naps usually last several hours. Never been a 'power nap' person. Yesterday I managed to 'sleep in' till nearly 7 AM...unheard of for me!...then a 2 1/2 hour nap and still in bed by 10:30! Not really a 'normal' day these days.

At 66 I go to bed between 9 and 9:30 during the week, 10-10:30 on Friday and Saturday. Since I get up at 4am to go to work, starting at 6am. Bed by 9:30 gets me 6.5 hours which is my comfortable minimum. Even on the weekends I'm up by 5:30-6:00, and rarely sleep more than 7-7.5 hours.

I said "get into bed" because I thought that perhaps many people would go to bed and watch TV or read or whatever - didn't say "what time to you go to sleep for the night . . . "

But maybe most people do "stay up" in another room and then just go to bed to sleep.

I go to bed around 1-2 am but fuss around on my phone and then listen to the radio. I keep the radio on all night long. Have always been a night person and haven't been able to change that.

In bed by 9:30, up by 4:15 every day. Even though I am retired, I have been doing it for so many years, no matter what time I go to bed, somewhere just after 4 am, I wake up and can't go back to sleep. 6 1/2 hours of sleep are good for me.

It is nice being up that early as I go to the gym, and usually have the place to myself.
