what time should I go to bed?

 

About this calculator

some pills can cause you to delay your sleep. some pills can make you sleep longer than you intend. if you need to wake up by a certain time, this is a way to calculate that.

give yourself 3 days to adjust your sleep cycle to a new wakeup time, and make the time shift gradually, not a huge shift. circadian rhythms seem to play a role in all of this and will throw off the timing of things. for instance, taking some pilkls at 9pm will get you up at noon-1pm, while taking them at 5pm will get you up at 4am.

this calculator does not (yet) take into account circadian rhythms. I am not even sure if that's different for different people, but I suspect not.

this is to help you take care of your God-given body.

Uses:

  • you are just starting a job or an interview and need to wake up by a certain time and get decent sleep (not going to work tired - "being on your game".
  • there's an event and you need to wake up really early, but you don't know what time to go to bed by so you get some decent sleep.
  • someone just got some new pills and they are imposing a delay on your bedtime. they want to find out when they are going to wake up if they take their pills at a cartain time (usually not the desired method).
  • someone just got some new pills and they are imposing a delay on your bedtime. they want to wake up by 7am, so they want to find 9out when they should take their pills.
