Physical and mental health is important, even in IB.

Adults should probably get between 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

Sleep: 9:30P

Wake: 5:30P 

So you’re awake for only 4hrs per day?

Go to sleep at 10-10:15 and get up 5:30-5:45.

Most important thing for me is falling asleep.  I'm the type of person that can lay down and be out in about 5-10 mins without any problems.  But I've talked to some people who can't get to sleep, especially during the transition period where they are trying to change their sleep schedule.  This piece of advice has helped everyone that I told it to: do not look at your phone for 30-60 mins before your head hits the pillow.  Personally I read for 30 every night before bed.  Also, dont eat too close to bed - I intermittent fast and when I started my sleep quality increased.  Not sure if this is because of the intermittent fast itself or because of the fact that I wasn't cranking late night snacks previously.  Also, something that is very important for sleep is relative exertion throughout the day - make sure to exercise.

Told this to one of my friends younger brothers and he started telling me about how he needs to wank his peen every night or he cant fall asleep. "how can I not look at my phone before bed if i need to..." - not a lot of relevance just thought I'd add it in since it was one of the dumbest responses ive ever gotten to an affirmative statement that I've made

Usually in bed around 11, alarm goes off around 730-8. Sometimes I just can't fall asleep though, I'll just lie there for 8 hours or so with my eye closed and nothing happens. Happened to me this weekend 2 nights in a row and on Sunday I felt like I was going to have a seizure. Was so exhausted that I went to bed at 8pm. Had a couple of glasses of wine, some melatonin, and some weed and knocked myself out. Still feel terrible though.

8 hours?! Dude, after the first hour of lying awake, it's time to try something else. I usually just get up and start working again until sheer fatigue drives me asleep. Most of the time it's because my mind can't stop running, so doing some work helps put me at ease

I try to get in bed by 11A and wake up by 7A (especially since since no commute). Sometimes I get to bed at 1A, but I still wake up at the same time.

Try to fall sleep by 10:30 and wake up 6:30, although I usually fuck around in the morning and sleep in since I can go to the gym during lunch which is nice.
