Reply To: Waking up early

Kelea Levy

My entire childhood I woke up at 5:30 am. Instead of trying to get me to sleep later, they had me go to sleep earlier and that worked. I went to sleep at 8:30 every night. I used to get up in the morning and do yoga with a lady on TV all those years…I didn’t know what I was doing – it was just the most interesting spaz thing to do at that time in the morning. Later in life, I found that experience to be very helpful to me in managing my ADD. Overall, I think my sleep time was just very sensitive to the day-light hours, which kind of makes sense – all the other diurnal creatures sleep at night and wake up early.
