Are you a morning person?

I'm not really, I don't like waking up early but once i'm up i'm ok. Although I prefer the night better. It seems more calming and relaxing, that's when I can get mostly everything done, my kids are asleep and I can relax, or clean the house.

I consider myself naturally a night person who's been forced into being a morning person. Granted, it's been YEARS (closing in on decades actually lol) since I've been able to stay up until the wee hours of the morning. But at one time, I did it all the time. Then I became a mom. LOL. Between getting up with the boys to get them ready for school, and myself, going to school and various volunteer opportunities, and now full time work; I became a "morning person". Even when I'm fortunate enough to get a day off (like every 3rd Saturday), I can't "sleep in" past 8:30am. LOL.

Well I think that I can function slightly better than most, but sometimes the morning is a battle for me. That bed can rather be comfortable a lot of the time during certain mornings. Especially when I unfortunately have to rather step right into the cold harsh world to say the very least. So it can be a rather prominent battle to rather get out of bed. However many mornings, I tend to bounce right out of bed, to rather get ready to get working, before most people have shaken off the cobwebs of sleep. It is almost scary in a number of ways to say the very least. But there are times where work is rather going to need to be done, so I am going to really get going. Despite the fact that the bed invites.

not at all haha.. I like to work at night. I feel more active and productive at night. I used to be on a graveyard shift for years until i accepted a new job and the training starts at 8am. I feel so sleepy the whole day though im feelin better now that i can sleep at night. I admit, sleeping at night is way better than daytime but again, i feel more alive in the evening. Plus i hate being under the sun hahaha..

No way! I am definitely not a morning person. I hate waking up in the morning, I feel so groggy and I just want to crawl back in bed. I have to wake up early so that I can get ready for school which is pretty early. I hate my alarm and I hate getting out of bed. I'm more of an night person, I tend to be more energetic at night and I just don't want to sleep. I tend to get temporary headaches once I wake up, I have to lie there first before I can get up slowly or else my headache would come. So I do not like my mornings at all!

I think I am! Although I am fond of sleeping in, I actually feel more productive when I wake up really early, while everyone is still sleeping. I would get things done, and I would think better and clearer early in the morning. But this doesn't happen often though.

I am also not a morning person, although I am awake early. Already as a small kid I had to wake up at 5.30 am. I need a lot of sleep but I never get it, so mostly I feel broke. The later it gets the better I feel (so my energy level is higher at the end of the day). I also find the nights so relaxing. I can do a lot and even housekeeping etc is less annoying and stressing as it is at daytime.

I hate waking up early unless I have something important to do. It's like a genetic trait for me, lol. I just want to sleep as long as I possibly can. Night time sits well for me though. It does seem more relaxing and I prefer environment you know? I'm also more alert than during the morning because even after waking up I'm in a sort of stupor where I can get the toilet mixed up with the sink...

I'm not particularly a morning person. But for the past year I have pretty much learned how to be one. When we need to do something or something that we want to we've got to do while we can. So for me usually late in the evenings and in the early morning is the best time for me. As long as I have glass of pop or cup of coffee I'm usually good to go. I usually get house work done and work online. It's also a little me time.
