Is your Bedtime Making you Fat? – The Insomnia Blog – Sleep Doctor Michael Breus, PhD

(if) you still need your morning alarm to wake up, then move your bedtime alarm back by 15 minutes every three days until you wake up just before your morning alarm.  When you wake up before your morning alarm, you have found your perfect bedtime.

This sounds pretty interesting.  Ideally, says the author, you should wake up on your own before the alarm clock rings.  So work backward.  Start by going to bed 7.5 hours before your alarm clock rings.  If you don’t wake up on your own before the ring, the next night go to bed 15 minutes earlier, then repeat till you do wake up before the ring.
