    Growing up in Northwest Iowa in CST wasn’t a problem, latter living in Northwest Florida in CST wasn’t a problem either. The only time I noticed the light/time difference was when I went back to Iowa for a visit and than it was no difference than switching daylight savings time. A bigger problem is when you live on an edge of two time zones. Fort Pierre, South Dakota MST and Pierre, South Dakota CST both towns are only divided by the Missouri River yet there’s an hour difference between the two towns because of the time zones.

    If you are waking up refreshed, when you went to bed/woke up and how long you slept was fine, the majority of people need 8 hours of sleep, and should wake up at around sunrise, but there is always an amount of people in those studies that didn't. The night cycle can be between 16 and 12 hours, with the day cycle being between 8 and 12 hours with the average being around 11-12 hours, so asking people to wake up at sunrise and go to bed at sunset is asking them to sleep for 12-13 hours, we are awake for 16 hours, sometimes more or less, depending on the person, some people only need 3 hours of sleep, some people need 13 hours, I need about 6, all of this is to say, our ancestors did not go to sleep at sunset/awake up at sunrise, just mathematically that doesn't make sense, unless you are saying they needed 12-16 hours of sleep, and if they did, but we only need 8 on average, than why should we follow their sleeping habits? that would just be dumb, and I personally can only fall asleep after 3 am, and I sleep the best if I spend the first 6 hours of sunlight asleep.

    I grew up on the western side of a time zone, and i now live on the eastern side of one. I find it very difficult to wake up on this side; my biological clock is programmed to western-part-of-a-time-zone, waking up while it's still dark. I miss it honestly.
