Does Spring make it harder to sleep?

Asked by 6rant6 (13672points) February 5th, 2010

As morning light comes earlier and nights are lighter, do you find it progressively more difficult to sleep?

Does Summer make it easier to sleep around?

Yes, and I use heavy drapes to keep the sunlight down. In the Winter I sleep a lot more from the lack of sun as well.

I used to. I couldn’t sleep unless it was completely dark and silent. I stapled heavy black fabric over my bedroom windows. Then I had kids. Now I am much too tired to be kept awake by little things like light, or loud noises, fire trucks, dogs barking, kids screaming…..

I use a t-shirt as an eye mask. But I love the light of spring.

I think it is actually easier for me to sleep in Spring. The open window, the breeze coming in, the sound of bugs and birds making music. The lullaby of nature creates a very relaxing mood.

Spring? What’s that? In February in New England we have forgotten all about spring, except as it sometimes appears in books, movies, television productions and other works of total fiction.

@CyanoticWasp Oh, yeah, I get your point. Southern CA here. Brutal winter – into the 50’s.

@marinelife The T-shirt eye mask – I thought that was just me!

Bob was having trouble getting to sleep at night. He went to see his doctor, who prescribed some extra strong, sleeping pills. Sunday night Bob took the pills, slept well and was awake before he heard the alarm. He took his time getting to the office, strolled in and said to the boss. “I didn’t have a bit of trouble getting up this morning.”

“That’s fine,” roared the boss, “but where were you Monday & Tuesday?”

@6rant6 No, I even do one for my dog. He gets a sock.

Winter is for hibernation. Spring is for messing around. That’s a good thing to get up for
(no pun intended).

The caveman in us says to get up and out to gather up and chase down as much food as possible while it’s more plentiful/blooming/breeding. Oh yeah, we’re supposed to be breeding too.

I tend to follow the pattern of night and day. This often makes me a pretty lame person during the winter because I get sleepy at 6, but won’t go to bed until 9, still that is early for most people. Then I automatically wake up at 6 in the morning, because that is when the sun comes up.

So I guess it makes sense that I would get less sleep in the Spring and Summer.

Alberta here, the days are getting longer, which for us means dark at 6 pm light at 7 am- plenty of time to sleep! I have my bedroom window open today ( -12C here) and I can hear birds chirping, sun’s shining. Our groundhogs are still hibernating.
