    Night

    I tend to wake about 11am with little energy, several coffees later and I pull into what a morning person probably considers "normal" then once night hits my energy level sores and I have trouble sleeping (with or without the coffee)

    Once I crash I'm very hard to wake and need a lot of sleep

I don't like staying up much later than that or getting up earlier.
    Yeah I'm pretty much exactly the same way!

    I'm both! Definately.
    This can cause problems...

    I am best suited to the med style of sleeping

    I naturally fall into the habit of being up late into the night, and this is usually when I am the most productive. However, I have recently started (2 months ago) a health and wellness program of my own design which incorporates proper nutrition, exercise, stress reduction (yoga, hot tub), and proper sleeping habits. As a result, I have been going to sleep between 11pm and 1230pm most every night, and waking up naturally at around 8.

    I must admit, although I rather enjoyed what I accomplished from being up at night, I much prefer how I feel during the day when I get a proper night's sleep.

    As I sit here writing this at 3:17AM, I have to say I'm a night/early morning type of gal.

    i'm morning and night. i just like being up.
    ever since i changed to sleeping once a day
    my energy hasn't been the same, i can't
    stay up as late, and feel groggy if i wake
    up too early.

    I'm wondering if it's better to sleep twice for 4 hours each day than once for 8 hours. Does anybody have experience with this?

    I'm undoubtedly a morning person.
    My internal clock is wound to wake anywhere from 7-8am, and I start to fall asleep or pass out completely around 11-12pm. Lately things have been a bit sticky, if you've seen my post on sleeping troubles, but generally that's how things go

    @Hatter, I would assume that sleeping the full 8hrs is 'better' as your body has a chance to get into a deeper, more relaxed state for longer rather than two brief stints throughout the day. But that's my two cents and I'm not a doctor Let us know if you find out.

    Apparently, two sleeps is our natural pattern. Like the whole siesta thing.
    Also I read some thing about during winter when people used to go to bed at sunset, they'd have basically two sleeps too, getting up for a few hours in the night, or least experiencing wakefulness.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    If I get up at or before 8, the day feels SO LONG. Even though I end up staying up just as long as a nightowl, the interminable, boring morning hours just kill me.
