Halocho #243 - When to get up in the morning

If possible, one should awaken at midnight and say Tikun Chatzot; lamenting the Bet Hamikdash that was destroyed and the resultant loss of Torah learning as well as all the Mitzvos we can no longer do. If getting up at midnight is not an option, one should get up before dawn to say Tikun Chatzot.
After Tikun Chatzot one should learn some Torah; Mishna or Tehillim or Mussar. At the very latest one needs to awaken in time to get to shul before they start morning prayers.
