As practitioners of life cultivation, we do not stay up late, so we will not feel tired for lack of sufficient sleep. We must be in deep sleep from 1100 pm to 0300 am. If we need six hours of sleep, we may then sleep from 1100 pm to 0500 am. If we need eight hours of sleep, we may then sleep from 0900 pm to 0500 am.

We will avoid eating too much food or drinking too much water after 0500 pm to get the best sleep.
