The Right Sleeping Pattern

Why different people have different sleeping habits?
Our bodies are designed in a way that requires intervals of rest after many activities that we undertake during the day. No wonder a good night's sleep is so important. There are many people who say that you need to go to bed at a particular time and wake up at certain times only. Often they recommend early rising which not best suited to most people. One book suggested rising at 5 in the morning. 
These are the general perceptions about the sleeping habits and I have personaly experienced that such generalized approach doesn't hold true for a long. I decided to follow this suggestion. All was well for couple of days but soon I lost my patience and got back to my usual habit.
Many people talk about habit. They are right but there is something more important than the habit itself -Your Sleeping Pattern. All of us have different biochemical clocks. What works well for some body, need not work for you. If you find out how your clock works, you will never feel sleepy throughout the day. You will have higher energy levels and that will show on your productivity.
How to find out your biological clock?
Well, it is pretty simple. First of all decide a fixed time for going to bed and waking up. Follow one routine for 2-3 days and record the changes you observed like how you felt throughout the, how was energy level, how many time you felt sleepy, how much work did you do that day and so on. After trying out several routines, do a thorough analysis to see which routine worked best for you. It sure requires some trial and error, but the squeeze is worth the juice.
