      I think it depends. Most of the reason I ever become a "morning person" is for work. I mean, sure, I'm trying to get back to earlier days so I can separate some of my working out more, but in general, I'm much better off a late morning/early afternoon person. And don't get me started on how productive* I've managed to be overnight on some occasions.







      *For varying descriptions and/or definitions of productive. Example: I run a RPG for friends across the country using the Discord app. I have been known to be so focused on what I'm doing while creating for them that it can easily get to 0300, 0400, or even later before I realize I should have gone to bed hours ago. Granted, this also applies to Civ 5... >.>

        wjs, I think part of it is that I am not a good sleeper. And I am not a good focuser, either. Maybe, I am just crazy?

              There is something magical about being awake at 3 or 4 am (willingly). I dont know what separates that time from the other time, but I always feel like its a very different feeling at that time than any other. Totally enjoyable for me. Harder to do some mornings, but its always worth it.

                aveoturbo for me, it's like 430-6. If Im awake before 430 I am too annoyed abt it to enjoy it. But if I sleep past 630 I feel like I lost something all day.

                  If I sleep past 5:30a (assuming I went to bed at normal time) I wake up with back pain.

                  Where I am at, 4am actually has the sky lit up enough that you can tell its not night time anymore. Its crazy and blows me away every time.

                    i burn the candle at both ends. unless i am sick, i can't sleep before 11p, sometimes as late as 1a. i will wake between 6-7 without an alarm. i usually set the alarm for 5 but depending on the quality of my sleep, i may not get up when the alarm goes off. and 4 am? i can do it if i have to but that makes for a very very bad day because getting up at that time means i wake up really groggy and i can't shake that groggy feeling all day.

                      I'd love to make use of early mornings, but my gym opens at 7AM and I can be at the office at 7:30AM earliest, otherwise the doors of the building are closed. So getting up at 5AM is completely pointless - I don't eat breakfast, doing household stuff in the morning annoys other people, and "me time" like reading when I'm still tired just makes me want to go back to sleep.

                        Thanks Gee and, lol PetiteSheWolf I live in a shoe box, so atm meals are all at couch. My cats are pretty well behaved except w deli meat (turkey, ham, etc) at which point they get in my face. (Altho, ever 6-8 months Shadow forgets she is not a foraging street cat and steals some larger bit of meat.... but she usually does that to my husband and not me so...)

                        I think everyone has some "optimal body clock" and if they are lucky their lives and responsibilities line up so they can follow it.

                        I was so discombobulated this morning it took me forever to get into my routine. I need to get better organized.

                            Have you considered that a bit more rest might be exactly what you need on all fronts related to this comment?

                              Whisper would never try to steal my food...Willow on the other hand...it was unwise for me to leave a glass of milk unattended. She also would try to drink my ice water.
