24 Sleep Experiment Step 1: Select a bedtime when you will be able to fall asleep easily. Try to make this bedtime at least 8 hours before you need to wake up. Maintain that bedtime for a week and note the time you wake up. If after a week you need an alarm clock to rise or if you find yourself at all tired during the day, you haven’t slept enough.

25 Sleep Experiment Step 2: If you’re not sleeping enough, keep your waking time constant and go to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier for a week. Repeat with an even earlier bedtime if, after a week, you are still showing signs of sleep deprivation.

26 Sleep Experiment Step 3: Once you’ve established a correct bedtime, try cutting back by 15 minutes and track whether that produces feelings of daytime drowsiness.
