Are you a morning person?

Well, generally in the morning, i'm quiet and somewhat grouchy. Even if i'm not in a bad mood, my face is very long. According to my mum, she doesn't like me when i'm in my morning mood. What about you? Are you cheery in the morning or more awake and active in the evening. My dad is a morning person and he likes to "disturb" and play around with me in the morning. Hence rubbing me up the wrong way. And so i get even more black face. HAhaa.

It sounds that a great number of people get up early with bad room, especially the adolescence. So am I. However, sometimes, when I want to get others to angry with. I may remind myself to be calm down. We can enjoy the best time of day, having a rich breakfast and also can do some exercises. All of these are benifit to the heathy develop of ourselves. haha

I am a morning person. My only problem with morning is that it comes so early! I actually do love starting my day and being up early (5 or 6 am) I just have a hard time dragging myself out of bed then if I don't have to. But the days I do get up that early seem like better days all day long then when I get up later and the day just seems over for me before it's really begun. Weird I know.

Oh yes, mornings are my best time. I feel more awake and alert and chipper. I start to flag down around 5:30 in the evening unless I take a power nap then I am okay until about 10 p.m My husband is a night person and so we meet somewhere in the middle for things we do. Been making it work now for almost 39 years.

I certainly am! I'm the most perky person. Especially in the morning. If anyone is staying at our house, they BETTER be awake when I am. Cause i'll clean the house, cook breakfast, do some mylotting, etc. I've done a half a day's work by 8am. (I wake up at 5am or 6am depending on how much I have to do that day).

I am so not a morning person. I cannot stand getting up early and am usually always grouchy when I get up. I am usually more grouchy if I get woke up. My daughter is 6 and she is the same way. SHe is so grouchy when she gets up. Now my son is right the opposite. He wakes up everyday in the best mood ever just smiling and being sooo sweet. I wish I could do this. I would love it.

I'm an all day person! I usually have a lot of energy in the morning and get a lot of things done, slow down a bit in the afternoon and get a second burst of energy in the evening.

Well I can't say that I am one of those cheery morning people. In fact i try not to talk to any one until I have had my morning coffee. I have two little girls though so I don't really have much choice but to wake up early. I am definately more an afternoon/night person. I used to work the night shift before I had my children, in fact my husband was my boss. I really can't stand talking to morning people in the morning because they just remind me more of why I'm not a morning person,LOL.

Im an evening person. I dont know why... i always have energy to do many things in the night. i also study in the night. its terrible for me to wake earlier in the morning to study for my examination and quizes. I prefer to wake up late. I hate to sleep earlier... except if im not feeling well or if my activity during the day is really tiring and made me exhausted and i will sleep around 10pm. but it must be the earliest sleep time for me. regularly i sleep around 12pm or 1am in the morning, or 2am. I can be not sleep in the whole night and sleep when its already 6am in the morning, and wake up 7-8hours after. so i will wake up in the afternoon and evening again... Thanks for examination, i can sleep around 12 pm... But during my vacation, my regular days change into regular night... i sleep at 6am and wake up 1 or 2pm in afternoon. I think its not healthy lifestyle... but thankful that i dont have eyebags, i must have dark line below my eyes, but not the eyebags. I simply compress them with cold water that put into the ice bags. Thats my therapy. You can try it also, and it works....

I can sometimes be a morning person, but I'm mot of a night owl. If I haven't been up to late the night before, I have no problems getting up in the morning.

In the morning my fiancee wakes me up and my step daughter. But what happen is I 'm really sleepy, and can't talk I rather go back to bed. What really wakes me up is the cold shower. I rush to dress up, and go downstairs having my breakfast, and my fiancee just prepare my lunch box. I just eat and not really talking that much, even my fiancee really hates me cause I just stare at her. I rush not to be late but because of the traffic that I still am late for 15 to 19 minutes. It's better to be late then never I think. It's what a life from Monday to Saturday. Good night!

I don't consider myself a morning person since i can work well during the later part of the day. I don't feel like getting out of the bed in the mornings and I can't think well. LOL. i get to lazy during that part of the day and my energy zooms up in the afternoon and at night time and I can work well during that part of the day. i don't have bad mood but the quality of work is not that good. LOL.

It really depends on the day, specially if I slept enough or not =) And the sun makes an influence in my mood, if I see sun when I wake up, even if it's cold I feel so good and full of energy! Since I wake up in the week before the sun sometimes I'm not in a very good mood :P

I am a night person. I always have been. When I was working I preferred the 3-11, or the 11-7 shift. Even though I don't work now I still like to stay up until about 2 am then get up at about 7-8, I putter [very slowly] around and after lunch I take a two to three hour nap. It is after the nap that I will get more done as far as house cleaning or whatever. My husband is a cheerful and busy morning person. We laugh and call the time when one of us is up and the other asleep 'Free Time'. That way we both get to do the things we want without boring each other.

Hello rregal_aeros! Honestly, it really depends upon my moods. There are times that I am very playful in the morning and love to play around but there are times that I am grouchy and not on the mood even to talk. My husband is the person who got into my morning grouchiness. I am glad he is patient enough to handle it.

Yeah i am more of a morning person. If i lack sleep i may snap here and there but i usually can go around with a smile and be nice all morning. The evening are the part of the day i get real cranky. Before bed time is worse. If i can't go to be on time i start snapping at the littlest things. My mom thinks i have an attitude but i just tell her i am tired thats all.

My mom was always a morning person. I never was. Now it is worse. My husband and I would prefer to be night owls, but we have a morning person for a son! He has always been an early riser and fairly happy in the morning. He is two and a half now and still gets up early. It is horrible!

Yes, I am definitely a morning person. I love mornings. It's not that hard for me to wake up early, unless I sleep really really late like, let's say 4am? Hehe. But yeah, I love the cool morning breeze, birds chirping, sun rising, coffee, hot bread. In fact, my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love the feeling of remembering that i'm still alive and just starting a new day again, it gives me enough hope.
