Being a student my family always scolded me for waking up at 2 a.m. but that's only how i could study well. I mean my brain works best between 11 pm to 4 am and that's when i study and i end up sleeping late

My 8 year old brother wakes up at 4:00 AM everyday just so he can watch TV. I can't even wake up at 5 with ease. But my brother does it effortlessly.

Maybe a better experiment to do over a month of everyday life, not when traveling.

Please, point me in the direction of the research that stipulates that getting less than 7 hours sleep is detrimental to your health. Just because this Mathew walker guy said what he said doesn't make him god in this area. It's just his opinion. The bottom line is that it's more to do with the quality of your sleep than how much sleep you get. 6 hours of sleeping like a baby is better than 8 hours of interrupted sleep.

Study or not, many people do not need anywhere near 8 hrs sleep. For me, 5 hrs & my body wakes up.

*I think u got the rule wrong: it should have been: try to wake up early but get 8h of sleep!*
When you where on vacation: you should have stayed by the 8h rule, not by 5 am! You could have held you rhythm easily ... waking up at the excact time +3 hours for new jersey ... and simply hold your rhythm ... and be perfect on time, when you where back home! ;)
I think changes should be made in a slow way ... wake up 15 Minutes earlier each day till you found your spot you wanted.
Changes should come more naturally ... not force or by the perfect hour.
So the "better" challenge would have been: adjust a few weeks the time you want to wake up (every day -15 minutes for example) ... and THEN start the challenge for 30 days!
In this case these challenges are more "natural" more realistic ... but the do take longer (which is a good thing!) and maybe ... you dont get such a "catchy" headline out of it ...
p.s. I wake up at 5 every day ... at 6 I drive to work and start working at 7 am. The first 2 months are difficult. The key is to hold that rhythm even on holidays and weekends ... just wake early and dont do hard hours in front of the tv or pc like staying awake all night ... after a few weeks your body has adjusted and then a miracle happens: at 11 o'clock you notice, that you got more shit done than with your old rhythm till 4 or even 6 p.m. ... so you don't have to "punch in" a night shift ... or two.

I tried to wake up at 5am for a month. As a single parent with two young teens, I decided that 6am is better for me. We grow through trying new things.

I used to never be able to study after school because I was just wayyy too tired. I'd keep telling myself "15 more minutes of rest then I'll study" until eventually it was 11pm and so I'd do rlly unproductive work till 4am. I changed to sleeping at 9pm and waking up at 4am because for me 7 hrs is enough and i isntantly go into deep sleep but I'm now so much more productive. Doing work while fresh in the morning feels so good. Sometimes it comes to the point that I get annoyed of having to wake up while it's freezing and dark but it's satisfying to be in the shower at 7am knowing I've already studied for 2.5-3 hours. Also since no one is up then I'm not distracted. Only problem is sleeping at 9 means my social life is pretty low now. All the good late night convos are impossible.

I watched this one and the "how to wake up by 6am" videos. Interesting perspectives on both. I am not a morning person...at all. I have heard my entire life especially from my grandparents "your generation is lazy..sleeping till 10am!" LOL! I agree you get more done and have more day. It is sad that we cannot construct our schedules at most jobs to our lifestyle. I agree some professions there needs to be structure but many they really could allow flexibility as long as work is done. I have been trying this past two weeks with success and failures. It is hard I think because it goes it against my body rhythm. Back to the drawing board.

Kinda feel like this was doomed to fail from day 1. Planning it for a time when you knew you were travelling is kind of silly. The mindset that it was an arbitrary challenge can't have been beneficial either.

I can’t go to bed early nor wake up early. It’s impossible. I’ve placed a giant alarm by my head and I always sleep through hours of it. Heck, even my parents can hear it from the other room but I can’t. And even if I wake up I’ll just convince myself to sleep again

...Hi young man,
I watched your, STOP WATCHING T.V., and BREAKING UP WITH SUGAR, and now THIS video. ...and though wish I had video making SKILLS ( anywhere near yours ), ...I will NO LONGER watch your videos. ...Because, God ( the Father, who raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day according to the scriptures ( Dan. 10:21; 12:10 ...K.J V. only ), is MY FATHER! . . .and I HATE, hearing His name used as if it were "a CURSED word!" ( Psalm 97:10; 89:7; Job 28:28; Psalm 1:1-6; 19:1-14; 119:1-176; ...I Peter 1:14, 15-16; Rom. 16:17-18; Matt. 15:7-14; II John 9-11; I Tim. 6:3-10; Phil. 3:2, 18-19; ...Prov. 28:4-6; 14:7 ( case-in-point ); Eph. 4:28-30; 5:1-7; II Cor. 6:14-18; 7:1; I Cor. 3:16-17; Prov. 13:13; 15:3; Heb. 4:12-13; I Cor. 15:33-34 ...I could type on and on, having READ GOD'S HOLY WRITTEN WORD for 40 years, since July 4th, 1980, age 21 ...humbly speaking before God, my FATHER, who ALONE IS HOLY! ( dung/excrement is NOT! ...it's BLASPHEMY to say otherwise ). ...So, I TRULY hope that The Lord leads you to REPENTANCE ( Jonah 3:1-10; II Cor. 7:8-15; Isa. 55:7-9; II Tim. 2:24-26; II Chron. 7:12-14; Eze. 14:1-23; Matt. 7:1-29; 23:1-39; Isa. 30:1-3; 33:14; John 9:31; I John 2:15-17; Heb. 7:26 )!! ...and WHY, do I SAY THESE THINGS to you? ...ANSWER: Ezekiel 2:1-3:27; 7:1-27; 13:1-23 ( this refers to ALL the LEADERS of ALL the churches of our day, who have help NO ONE: II Peter 2:1-22; Isa. 2:6-22; II Cor. 11:3-4, 13-15; Matt. 7:13-15, 21-23, 26-27; Isa. 56:9-12; Jer. 5:20-31; Rev. 9:20-21; 2:2, 20-24; 3:14-18; 17:1-18:24; ...22:18-19 ); Eze. 14:1-23; [ 18:1-32; 21:1-32; 33:1-33 ]; and Romans 1:1-16:27; Galatians 1:1-6:18; Ephesians 1:1-6:27 ...this... by the way IS WHAT THE WORLD is created to do: DISTRACT as many as possible from OBEYING God's Word ( I Cor. 15:1-58; Phil. 3:1-21; I John 2:15-17; James 4:4; and for details: Ecclesiastes 1:1-12:14; Daniel 1:1-12:13; and I John 1:1-5:21; Revelation 1:1-22:21!! ...but, WHO PAYS ATTENTION to details...? ) ...from Niles Livingston Sr., a servant, and, an apostle of The Lord Jesus Christ. ...Amen.
