Scientific Studies Say THIS Is the Best Time to Sleep

We’ve been fascinated by the topic of sleep recently, mainly because most of us agree that we either don’t get enough of it or can’t seem to do it. For the latter, you can try this editor-approved trick, and for the former, well, that’s a lifestyle decision that may or may not hinge on the fact that you decided to start Netflix series at 10 p.m. (again).

We interviewed a sleep researcher about how much sleep we should really get each night, to which she explained seven to eight is the magic range (you can read more about why here). But does this mean we can go to bed at 2 a.m. each night and wake up at 9 a.m. and feel just as awake as someone who went to bed at 11 p.m. and wakes up at 7 a.m.? Is there an “optimal time” that science has deemed the proper time to hit the hay? See below for the answer.
