    I find it's also normal for many students who generally appreciate afternoon classes.

    Early morning starts are evil

    Doctors Push For Later School Start Times
    by Leah Rocketto, 25 August 2014

    Teens aren't the only ones who want a little extra sleep. New research from the American Academy of Pediatrics says high schools and middle schools need to push their start time to 8:30 a.m. or later. With 45 percent of teens getting less than eight hours of sleep each night — the optimal amount for their age group — members of the AAP think a delayed start time is necessary to prevent "a public health crisis."

    "As adolescents go up in grade, they're less likely with each passing year to get anything resembling sufficient sleep," Judith Owens, director of sleep medicine at Children's National Medical Center and lead author of the AAP statement, says. According to Owens and her fellow authors, insufficient sleep can lead to:

    • Increased risk for obesity, stroke, and type 2 diabetes; higher rates of automobile accidents; and lower levels of physical activity.
    • Increased risk for anxiety and depression; increased risk-taking behaviors; impaired interpretation of social/emotional cues, decreased motivation and increased vulnerability to stress.
    • Lower academic achievement, poor school attendance; increased dropout rates; and impairments in attention, memory, organization, and time management.

    I think this interesting thread is worth reviving.

    While I'm definitely a night owl, I found it interesting that when deprived of electricity for an extended period (twice now in about the last ten years!), my sleep cycle did adapt to 'early to bed and early to rise'.

    My problem is that earlier to rise sadly does not result in earlier to bed...so letting myself sleep when I can.

    Its the lack of artificial light and reduced exposure to screen time and mobile devices that helps realign the brain. There is never a time when I go hiking or camping that I dont sleep from sundown to dawn.

    Most studies seem to indicate that going to sleep no later than 9pm is best for your circadian rhythm and to achieve the best quality of sleep.

    The last time I went hiking I was getting to sleep at around 8pm and getting up at about 4:15-4:30am to make sure I was on my way by 5am when the sun had pretty much arisen.

    Another good reason why Sprouty is a Night Owl is da Fact dat Ems lives in da Arizona Desert where da daily temps 8 months outta da year stays above 100 f. during da day light hrs n its hard to shop for chilled groceries n keep em chilled on da Ride home during da day when da daily temp ranges from 100-122 f. here in Arizona.....

    Corona19 Virus has Halted this night owl routine of da Sprout for Big Biz has changed its 24/7 hr approach to daily life n locks da doors tight at night... Big Biz blame it on da Corona19, using da virus as an excuse to say that da closed hours is for proper daily cleaning of their box stores but in fact they are doing da nightly closing for security Reasons along with cutting labor cost. Vampires(criminals) fully masked up come out in da night to rob,steal n loot da big box stores especially in Arizona......

    -Sprout85
    Every One will Catch da Corona19 Virus, May God Help Us All
    You just can't reason with da BA.2.12.1 type Corona19 Virus...... IT DON'T CARE !!!1
