Discussion on: Why wake up at 4 am may not work for you?

I guess the bigger problem is how to manage going to sleep at 8. The waking-up-part seems trivial in comparison.

Your comment is very important and really made me think about it.

Here in Brazil, an average student has class in the night that may end up at 11 PM and have to work more or less 9h/day to pay the class and finaly you have to wake up at 4:30 AM to be "productive" in the day. In the best scenario you will sleep at least 4h per day. It's impossible.

Doing this routine of waking up at 4:30 AM, you have to sleep at 8:30 PM, but if you work all day and have family, then you won't sleep at 8:30 PM you gonna go enjoy the rest of the day with your family, am I wrong??

I wonder what people do for living to keep this routine.

I guess it's a feasible sleep-routine for a single person with more than average flexibility job-wise.

With family you need to match your sleep to the kids' schedule. For me that's 11-7 Sleep, 7-9 Kindergarden-Run and Commute, 9-6 Work & Commute, 6-11 family & personal-time.
