    Social requirements affects to individual’s sleep-rhythm together with the biological clock. The study aims to explore the morningness and eveningness peoples’ experiences of their own life satisfaction by qualitative methods. The theoretical starting point with sleep-rhythm is biological research, which is combined with the background of life satisfaction theo-ries. This study focuses on subjects' own experiences and views of their own chronotype and life satisfaction. Morning-ness-eveningness -division is the ground of examine individuals’ experiences of their life satisfaction, chronotype and the importance of sleep. Analysis of the study is done with phenomenographic methods. Despite the quantitative theory-base, data-driven orienta-tion is highlighted in the analysis. Since cultural factors not been previously taken into account because of the neuropsy-chological studies, the aim of this research is to increase the field with phenomenographic perspective. Life satisfaction and sleep-rhythm is constructed by social demands, for example by work-schedule. The material consists of ten examinees with different life situations. The age varies from 20 to 55. They have responded to the survey in October 2016 with anonymous questionnaire, which has been adapted from earlier sleep- and life satis-faction surveys. The results involves three different groups; morningness, eveningness and both. Based on those, the analyze of life satisfac-tion is done. The third group was unable to identify themselves only morningness or eveningness –type of person. This group can be considered as one of the result. In the addition, all of the examinees determined their chronotype through social requirements. This research is lacking the holiday-period-time evaluation, when sleeping habits could be more re-alistic regardless of working hours. Still, one examinee is connected to very high life satisfaction and the same examinee has the possibility to sleep freely during the week with school or work. Also, by the results, the eveningness-people were not as happy with their chronotype as the morningness-people. The importance of the sleep, showed really high im-portance to all examinees. Sleep’s high relevance in well-being, happiness, state of mind, work and in social relations was maintaineid. All these parts builts life satisfaction. Allthough, we can’t ever definitively control the culture factors, more attention should be taken in the future to those with every sleep-study.
