I'm 64. I usually go to bed between 9:30 and 11:30 PM depending on when I get too tired to read. Occasionally I'll stay up a bit later.

Usually around 2 a.m., because I can only manage to sleep for 5 1/2 to 6 hours and I absolutely do NOT want to have to get up at some ungodly hour like 6 or 7 a.m.!

I did that for too many years when I was working and/or being a stay at home mom. I like to get up sometime between 8 and 9 a.m. Not before. So in order to do that I have to stay up until 2 or 3 a.m.

I used to be able to sleep for 7 or 8 hours when I was younger. Now if I (very rarely, maybe 3 or 4 times a year) happen to sleep for 7 hours I will wake up feeling groggy, fuzzy-headed, and ache for hours. The back muscles don't like being in one position for that long anymore. Ugh. Sooo not worth it.

Depends.

I work 2 second shifts (3-11 pm) and one day shift ( 7am-3pm).

Days that I don't work. I get into bed anout 8 pm, maybe as late,as 9. Same for the day I work day shift.

But those two pesky nites I work till 11pm, I am lucky if I'm in bed by 2 am.

I don't sleep well to begin with, no matter what time I go to bed I sleep 4 hours tgen get up to go, and am up for 1-3 hours before I can go back to sleep. I get up usually around 5 am or as late as 6 am, regardless what time I go to bed.

If I have an early appt the day after working til 11 pm, I am lucky if I run all day on 4 hours sleep, especially if I work the next day 2nd shift again.

If I had my druthers, id be in bed at 8 pm, up at 4 or 5 every day.

The choices on these posts are ridiculous!

I go to bed anywhere between 11:30pm and 3am. But I would say on average it is probably around 1am.
