Are you a morning person or a night owl? Why?

    I'm a morning person myself. I like daylight and I wake up naturally so I don't feel groggy in the mornings at all which is a big plus.

      I'm trying very hard to not hate you right now.

        To fight off the groggies, drink plenty of water before bed, and maybe keep a glass by the bed for the morning. Or, if you’d rather, keep an oxygen tank and oxygenate for your given body mass before sleep. Maybe for four minutes or so. Does wonders warding off hangovers.

          I don't drink, so hangovers aren't really an issue with me. And I wake up easily enough, I just don't feel cheerful about it. I'll see if a glass of water first thing in the morning helps but really the best solution I've found is to stop requiring me to wake up before noon.

            Bet that glass of water does more good before bed than after, but best of luck to you.

              Oh, that I do all the time. In addition to waking up groggy, I usually have to wake up extra early to use the toilet.

              Electrolytes, then?

              I just need to win the lottery so I can go to bed and wake up as my body desires rather than by someone else's schedule. ;)

    I'm a night owl who got transformed into somewhat of a morning person. I blame my children: my oldest conditioned me to sleep lightly and get up at the slightest provocation. So it's now easier for me to wake up at 5 AM than it used to be, although it still takes me a long time to get my brain in gear and get moving. The consequence to that is that I'm no longer as vibrant at night as I used to be.

    I'm not enjoying it at all.

    A little bit of both. It's almost like they come in spurts. Sometimes I'll be a night owl, because of what I'm doing and how invested I am in it. Other times, it depends on how much stuff I need to accomplish the next day. But since I've been bumming it this summer, I have been setting my alarm for 8:30. Still morning enough, but with a little bit of sleeping in. It's my "just right" time.

    Yes to both. I like to be up by 6 and I like to be up past midnight. How do I manage this, you ask? Planned naptime!

    I'm a day person. I like to see the sunlight, spend time with family and have a social life

    Night owl, night owl, night owl. Did I mention I'm a night owl?

    I've always hated mornings. I'm not a person that wakes up easily, sleep through most alarms regardless of how loud or annoying they are, and...I don't know, I just like night time. In the summer, it's cooler at night. In the winter, you get that amazing permanent twilight because of all the snow reflecting light. A city lit up at night is gorgeous to me. Plus I tend to have more friends overseas than I do here, so it lines up nicely to many of their schedules.

    I'm totally a night owl. I hate going to bed almost as much as I hate getting out of it.
