In April, I wrote a story about morning people. I spoke with 39 women-all of whom wake up at or before 6 A.M. every single day-about what they do during those wee morning hours, when the rest of us are hitting the snooze button and sleeping the day away.

But I did not think to ask them about their bedtimes-at least not until my editor told me to. She reminded me that anyone who was waking up was getting up early. (And if they are not, they're probably not getting enough sleep.) Remember, the National Sleep Foundation recommends that you get a full seven to nine hours of sleep every single night. And there are definitely consequences to skimping on that restorative rest.)

Before I was published that first morning person article, I went back to all 39 women I'd come to and asked them for their bedtimes. They ranged from 8 PM to 12 A.M., usually falling somewhere in between. But my curiosity was piqued-how much, exactly, were these people in the morning fitting in their evening routines? (In other words, how did they do it? Because I did not get to bed by 8, like, ever, let alone regularly.) hitting the hay? And how much was the next-in-the-morning prepping they were doing at night to ensure their early mornings ran completely smoothly (56 coffee maker or selecting outfits)?

To find the answers, I went back to them again. Here, 41 morning people share their evening routines. Some of these people contributed to my first-morning people's round-up, and some of them are brand new contributors. Either way, they're here to clue you in on. For your early-rising edification, here are the nightly routines that make their mornings possible, sorted from the earliest to latest wake-up time.
