Spouse exhausts me during the day and I need to rethink my 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. schedule to sleep as well as can be. I can switch dinner earlier than its current 7 p.m. and would like to sleep through the night as much as possible. Right now it's at least 1 pit stop in the dark hours; looking at the clock then it's pretty depressing so all I know is that it's dark. Any thoughts about timing appreciated.

I think 6pm is a good cut off time. Dinner at 5pm works for us.

Thanks for replying - it's easier to eat earlier now that it's getting on to shorter days. I retire at 10.30 and sleep around 11, so 6-11 could be lollipop time! :D

I once had a doctor tell me 2:00pm is when liquids should be ceased if one wants to really avoid having to get up at night to pee.

Cant say if that would work - never tried it. Way to extreme. IMO, at least.

It's good input, thanks. 2! I'll have to think about trying that one, hmm.

It depends but to be safe 7pm. Give it a try and see how it goes.
No one will dehydrate from not drinking 10 hours.

Thanks for the swift reply - the dinner time is now 6:30 and it's acceptable to drink with the meal and quit afterwards. Maybe I can suck some lozenge or candy or something in the evening.

Timing... not so sure. try an hour earlier for water, and then stop?

On a trial basis, it's dinner at 6:30 p.m. and trying out sucking a candy mint or something like that in the evening. Thanks for replying.
