    I’m an early bird.  I get up around 4 on weekdays and by 7 on weekends.  I’d suggest moving your alarm clock away from your bed so you physically have to get up to shut it off if you need motiviation to get you up in the morning.  Once you do the early mornings for a few weeks, you should adjust to a early-to-bed, early-to-rise way of life!

    Do you work? I’m a night owl as well, unfortunately. I’ve always thought that the world is made for early birds 🙂 What really helps me is having to adjust to an early bird work schedule (most days I have to get up at 6,40). If you force yourself to get out of bed early, you’ll be tired early in the evening. 

    I find it useful to create a “sleeping atmosphere”when I don’t feel sleepy at all – low lights, relax in bed with a book and a herbal infusion, no cellphone. You could try melatonin as well.

    I’m really more of a day person.  Haha.  However, if I had to choose, I’d say I’m more of an early bird.  My Darling Husband is definitely a night owl and hits snooze several times before getting up.  

    They sell wake-up light alarm clocks that simulate the sunrise to wake you up gently.  I’ve thought about getting one for my Darling Husband.  I’d be interested to hear feedback if anyone has tried this.

    There was a time that I only saw the sunrise if I was just getting home lol. Now though I’m usually up at 5:30-6 without an alarm. I don’t really know how I became an early bird…it just kind of happened one day. 

    What time does your husband leave for work? Could you spend some time with him in the morning before he goes to work and leave the nights for weekends?

    My Fiance sometimes has to get up for work around 3:30am. We have an alarm that attaches to his wrist that vibrates and wakes him up gently. It’s genius. I can’t for my life remember what it’s called but we got it at the Apple Store :).

    in my younger years i just didn’t like to sleep and was a night owl and early bird.  when i started cycling, i needed to go to bed early to get up early and have energy.

    since being pregnant with my first (now pregnant with #2), i will forever more be an early riser. 

    and just a habit of getting up for work at 6am, my body wakes up at that time even on weekends.

    sugarcloud : I am an early bird! During the work week (when I come to the office) I wake up at 4:20am! When I work from home I wake up at 5:45am. During the weekend I’d rather make morning or afternoon plans, lol. 

    The mornings are so peaceful and I love watching the sunrise!
