I guess it depends on the lifestyle of a person! As for me I do household work during the day and my online job during the day! And I suggest we should practice a better time management not to be stressful enough to do work!

My family has always called me 'The Night Owl'. There are pictures of me asleep in my cereal bowl at the age of nine. I've always had a hard time in the morning and am more alert at evening time. In school all my classes before ten had low scores and after I had higher scores. So in college I picked classes in late morning and arranged my schedule to suit my sleeping oddities. I graduated with a 3.97. For me there really is something to my ability to rest better at certain hours. Funny thing I noticed though in a recent trip to Indonesia, is that I slept great at normal hours. So maybe I am in the wrong time zone or destined to live in a warm tropical climate.

Yes, I'm sure that is it. We are all just in the wrong time zone. lol I'm surrounded by roosters... I actually do not know any night owl people, with the exception of maybe one. So, you think there are more of us than there are of them? What do you base this on?

Hi innocents_lost, I'm also a night owl and I like to stay up late all the time. It's so quite and peaceful to do my favorite things in wee hours. I hate to get up early in the morning. getting up early in the morning would happen only if I were to catch the early bus or plane Happy posting
• Canada
21 Jan 12
yes you are right it is defiantly more peaceful i think that might be part of the reason i'm up late because it is the only time i can do stuff around the house with out being asked 100 questions or nagged about stuff....hmmm i never really though about that

it's the great benefit to be alone in tranquil night for all my family members have gone to bed No more noises made by the tv program as well as the disturbance from their never ending chitchat and laughter too. Yeah, the nagging asking me to go to bed earlier every now then would in a bad mood and irritable too. And certainly I couldn't concentrate on what is on the web for sure

that is true i can't do anything here when everyone is awake i generally wait till everyone has gone out for the day to do my laundry and that and cleaning that needs the vaccume as it stops the content have you cleaned this yet have you done that yet. where i used to live i would get up early with the sun to do the chores on the farm and that might be it as well as everything is so calm first thing in the morning and the animals were just waking up
• United States

Lol I think I'm neither. I don't go to bed that late (usually between 10:30 and 11:30) and I don't wake up super early. When I do wake up early I'm sort of grumpy and I don't like people talking to me. But then at night I get really tired before its even that late. I guess I'm just one of those odd ones who's neither of the two lol.
• Canada
20 Jan 12
but as you said you dont like being woken up super early and can get grouchy to me that makes me think you are more a night person then
• United States
20 Jan 12
Hmm, I guess so then. I just don't stay up super late and I also get tired lol. I'm stuck somewhere in the middle!
• Canada
20 Jan 12
I wish i could be somewhere in the middle its hard as heck getting a full night's sleep when you have to get up for work in the morning but end up staying up late because you are wide awake

Hello, it is saying that early to bed and early to rise make a man healthy and wise. It is true one must be wake up early in the morning. But I like to stay late at night if I have some urgent work to do. But I like to wake up early in the morning.

i wish i could do that i have such a hard time getting up in the morning....I have never heard that saying before

I'm a night person. I go to sleep pretty late considering that I have to get up early for work. I go to bed around midnight and have to be up by at least at 6am. I probably should get up early so I dont have to rush to get ready but I don't like getting up each morning and wouldnt even if I did go to bed at a normal time.
• United States
21 Jan 12
I think this is the way I'm programmed. I've always been a night person and have always had the same habits.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
yea if i have to get up at 7 i set my alarm to 6:30 and it takes me 15 min to get my bum out of bed lol but i would rather get 15 min extra sleep and be rushed then not get that extra sleep :P

i hate mornings so much but i get up because i have to my little girl wakes me up. but i'm definlety a night person i always stay up late on the computer or watching tv everyone in my house is like that so thats why. for some reason i feel super lazy in mornings.
• Canada
22 Jan 12
it does seem so much easier to get things done at night on the computer adn all the best t.v. shows are on at night

I guess that being required to take a pill at 6am is good for me, otherwise, it's no telling when I'd get up. Many years ago, I worked for the phone co. My hours were 10pm to 7am. That was my favorite job, so you can easily see which category I fit in. Don't know if I was programed that way. I've hated to get u p early in the morning since childhood, but that may have been because of the drafty old farm house we lived in.

oh i would love to have a job with hours like that as that is when i am the most awake and have the highest energy

I used to work at night , on my days off I used to stay up all night then the company I worked for changed the hrs no nights so now I am falling asleep in the chair by 10pm so now I have become a day person

so weather you are a night or morning person for you depends on your lifestyle and job that makes sence

I have always been a night person and have always had trouble trying to get up early in the mornings even when I was still a child. I guess the reason for this is that my parents always allowed me to sleep in especially during the weekends. Not that I was a inactive child, rather I was very hyperactive and loved to run and climb. When I started working, the shifts that was given to me were closing shifts at the fastfood restaurant I was able to work with. The schedule suited me well and I had no trouble adjusting to late nights working unlike other people who would be lethargic by 9 or 10PM because it is already past their bedtime. I have been working in the call center industry for the past eight years and this is another job that I have had no problems adjusting to the work schedule. I have never really been a morning person and when asked what shift I wanted, I would always answer early afternoon or the graveyard shift.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
yes i wish i worked a later shift so often! I to believe i have always been a night person i remember going to school many days so tired because i could not get to sleep at a half decent time I ill often go to bed around 9 to make sure i get enough sleep but then i just end up lying in bed for hours awake and get no extra sleep at all very frustrating

I am definately a night person. Of course I do work at nights and have done so for many years now. I am not sure if I began working nights because I am a night person or if became a night person because I work at nights. Either way, I am always slow to wake at the beginning of each day. I try to sleep in as long as possible before getting out of bed.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
even though i work days i find it difficult so get up as well i often think it would be easier for me to find a night job

I'm more of a night person, not a morning person. I definitely do not wake up happy Especially when I need to wake up real early. When I wake up each morning, I need to lie there for a while before I can get my mind together and get up. I tend to be pretty lazy and just want to crawl back in bed and I hate my alarm. I tend to be more energetic at night, I just don't want to sleep! But I prefer sleeping better than waking up. I feel more like myself at night when it's cool and dark, not bright and hot in the morning. So I'm a night person, I like to stay up late.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
do you ever wish you could change that? just jump out of bed every morning and be wide awake and ready to go?

Well it will be difficult to answer any of the above questions as I dont fall under any of them. I am a night person but i can get up early or sometimes if is too early then I dont prefer to sleep at all. About reason for all this I think it has to be life style as every one has their own schedule and their own watch to follow. As long as you are fit and fine all izz well.. What say ? Cheers !
• Canada

that is very true i am finding it extremely interesting how many more people are night people then morning people my schedule fluctuates so i don't have a set sleeping ruitine

I am flexible,but yes, I do hate waking up early in the morning. I am supposed to be a better worker late in the afternoon until evening but my real-life tasks require that I have to be up early.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
see the only thing i have to get up for are the few days i have early mornings i find it so difficult often i ill come home from work then around 9 get a second burst of energy and get everything else i need to done

I'm definitely a night person! I achieve so much during nighttime. During daytime I'm usually groggy and on autopilot. Moreover, I'm often sleepy! As a student, not staying up late is not really an option because I have to submit a lot of papers and the like, and I only have nighttime to finish them all. I'm just more relaxed at night, if that makes sense.
• Canada
21 Jan 12
that makes perfect sense i am much the same although not a student i seem to get all my house work finished at night when i have more energy

I think I am definitely a night person! I always get incredible ideas and think about all sorts of different types of projects at night! For that reason I find it difficult to go to bed and I would like to just continue doing what I was doing for longer, which is not very considerate for others!
• Canada
21 Jan 12
yes i believe i am much the same i get so much more accomplished at night then in the morning and everything seems so much easiest often its hard to go to sleep as i feel i can get so much more done

I am a morning person. I go to bed early and find that I am fresh and energetic in the morning. I'm not sure it's my lifestyle. I kind of programmed myself. A decade ago, I was never up early and used to go to bed very late. I realized it wasn't helping me and started getting up at 5 am and going to bed before 10pm. It helped me a lot. I got time to myself in the morning when everyone else was asleep and I could plan and manage my time well.I wasn't rushing around trying to finish things and I was calmer and more patient with the people around me. I feel since I am a morning person, I needed this routine for things to work out well. A night person would probably reverse what I do and be comfortable with that.

makes sense that is what my boyfriend is like he gets up at 5 am and does all kinds of stuff around the house while i'm still sleeping then at night i do the same thing while he is already in bed :P Even when i go to bed early with him he's up at 5 and i ant 5 more hours sleep lol just cant bring myself to wake up early no matter how much sleep i have gotten
