Surely, there has to be more to it that that? I 'naturally' do the 7.5 hrs. Who knew, yet my sleep is shocking. Recently I seem to be going to sleep then waking up 2hrs later, tossing and turning for another 4hrs, only to then fall asleep.

Dr. Breus,

Another excellent post--having a regular bedtime schedule is crucial for health and we can easily fall into the trap of "this show is almost over" or "I've got to finish these emails." If I may add, it's also important for folks to know to keep a regular sleep schedule on weekends too. It does take self-discipline to go to bed and rise at the same time, 7 days a week, but isn't a long, healthy life worth it?

that is good advice about setting your alarm to remind you to go to sleep. Even then it probably would be difficult because going to bed if you aren't tired is tough to do.
good post and blog!
