The author offers tips for improving sleep patterns and how to make early rising a long-term habit. According to him, one should only go to bed when one feels really sleepy and then rise at a fixed time. He advises not to sleep the same hours each day because one will end up going to bed when one is not sleepy enough, and to not assume that one needs the same amount of sleep each night because sleep varies from day to day.

We speculated that...
