About what time do you most often go to bed at night?

According to HealthDigest, the average American goes to bed at 11:39 p.m. Across the globe, that time is just about the same: 11:40 p.m. on weekdays, and 12:10 a.m. on weekends.

Where do you fall in that spectrum? What time do you most often go to bed at night?

Currently (pre-retirement), I work a night shift. So it’s perfectly normal to walk in the door at 2 a.m. and finally go to bed between 4 and 5. Then sleep till 11 or 12 and start all over. I have NO IDEA what kind of hours I’ll keep once I’m on the road in another year or so. Most likely I’ll still be night-owlish, but on travel days will have to be earlier to bed & rise because driving a trailer long distances at night is a definite no.

For 48 years I worked a job that went from 7am to midnight 6 days a week (sometimes 7 days) for 3 weeks every two months, the rest of the time I worked the same job from 2pm to midnight the rest of the time of the month. Going to bed at 11 pm after I retired just seemed like a dream. And I still get up at or around 6am. But I did get 6 weeks of time off every year.

I chose “After midnight,” which is typically true. The real answer is when I get sleepy. Additionally the time I have to get up affects when I go to bed. Our typical time to rise is 8 or 8:30 AM and I try to get at least 7 hours of sleep.

Most of the time around 10:00. But I have a book to read. Usually turn the lights off around 11 unless it’s really good then until I fall asleep.

I don’t have a “set” bedtime. My body tells me when I should turn in. Being retired, if I don’t have to wake up for a particular reason / event, I sleep until I wake up naturally. I LOVE retired life! Now if Covid could be reined in, I could go back to my RV treks.

Wife goes to bed around 10 and gets up between 6 and 7. I go to bed around 2am after I wake up on the couch having fallen asleep around 12. I get up around 8:30ish.

Going to bed and going to sleep are two different events. We go to bed around 8pm. Maybe watch a movie, youtube or read books. We turn in for sleep at 11pm. Wasn’t sure which one you were asking about so I answered literally, we go to bed before 9pm. We have a truck camper, the bed is the most comfortable place but it’s the same habit at home.

I wonder if it is the time a person is born that influences their adult sleep patterns!? I was born around 2 a.m. – I am a nite person! Now, retired, I go to bed at 1:00 a.m.. Rise between 8:30 and 9:15 routinely. I have never had any problems adjusting to the start or the ending of daylite savings time. (Of course I am not mentioning the :15 to :30 nap after supper – or my recharge slumber!)

Right on ! I have worked mostly second shift, and since retiring 10 yrs. ago, it is still bed at 2:AM and up at 8:30AM. Sometimes bed is a little earlier or later (no more than an hour usually difference). If I need a nap my body will tell me. 6hrs. a night has always served me well. By the way I was born at 6:36PM.

At home, we watch TV and go to bed midnight or later. On the road we usually read for a while and go to bed by about 10:00.

Before the wife and I retired from the insurance business, we were in bed by 10:00pm. But now we both work a mini casino. The nights we work we don’t get to bed till 1:00 or 2:00am. The off nights usually mid night.

Usually around 10:30, then maybe read for 15-20 minutes to help me fall asleep.

Used to be between 9 & 10 when I had to get up at 5am for work. Now, tens months into retirement its 11 to midnight. Kept waking up at 5 am for a few months but eventually that faded away.

For 6 years it was 9PM, now after 6 1/2 years it’s anywhere between dark and 11PM

Lol! I thought when I retired I’d finally be able to sleep later – not so! I get up at six, but I’m usually awake at 5.

Anytime between 5 and 6:30 I’m up. Even when I was working afternoon shift I got up at 6 to spend an hour with my son before he left for school.
