    sugarcloud :  Maybe you can find a morning activity that you enjoy! That may help you change your cycle. 🙂

    I can’t wait for winter, I live in Texas and it is so HOT. I am literally counting the days down to fall and winter, lol!

    booksybee :  I have one of those sunrise alarm clocks! It’s amazing in the winter when it feels like the sun is NEVER going to come up. I have to get up early for work (before 6 am most days, but sometimes as early as 4 😭) and the sunrise alarm is really helpful. It’s made by Phillips. It also plays pleasant bird chirping sounds as the “sun” comes up. I definitely wake up in a better mood than I do when I just have my phone alarm blaring at me.

    I would say in the younger years, night owl. But when I graduated college and got the good ole “9-5” career, things changed. I am actually 8-4:30 because I take short lunches. But I cannot for the life of me SLEEP IN. I want to so bad on the weekends but my body says NO. I naturally wake up at 6:45/7 no matter what time I went to bed.

    Im kinda in the middle but I went with with early bird because I do much better if forced to get up early than go to bed late. My general routine is up at 7.30am and in bed at 9.30pm. I need alot of sleep! I am at my most productive between 10am and 1pm and feel sluggish towards the late afternoon.

    Neither? I like sleeping. I like to go to bed pretty early around 9 or 10pm. I don’t like waking up early, but I can’t sleep in either, this usually means getting up around 7-8am. I’m useless if I have to get up at 5 or 6 though. 

    When I was younger, I was definitely a night owl, staying up until the wee hours and sleeping until noon, but those days are long gone.

    sugarcloud :  I’m the same as you and I’m already wondering how the hell this is going to work when we DO have kids. I am usually up until 12am-2am most nights working on my assignments, though I’m guilty of cleaning at night too! Darling Husband goes to bed around 10pm most nights.. It used to bother him, but now he realises just how much work I get done at night. I f**king hate mornings, I’m up at 9 and then I don’t ‘fire up’ until around noon embarassed

    I try getting up early for a week and then after that I am straight back to my night owl ways because I just can’t concentrate enough during the day and I get sweet FA of my uni work done!

    I used to be a night owl, especially when I worked at a restaurant. Now I have an office job and am up at 5am everyday. I still sleep in a bit on the weekends, but I do like waking up early as it makes my day feel longer.

    sparkosity :  That’s the same clock I’ve been thinking about getting.  Everything you said makes me think this might work for my Darling Husband as well.  It sounds like a pleasant way to start your day.  Thanks!

    I am a night owl and hate it terribly. I’m going into my 3rd year teaching and everyone told me that after a few weeks of “forcing” myself to wake up early and go to bed earlier, I’d eventually have no problems waking up early. It has been 3 YEARS having to wake up at 6:30 am M-F and I STILL can’t do it. I run late to work almost every day and am miserable the first few hours of my workday, EVERY single day. For some reason, I just feel more productive in the evening versus the morning.

    Falling asleep isn’t a problem for me; I pass out relatively quickly and sleep between 7-9 hours almost every night. By the book, I’m doing everything right, but I still can’t wake up at 6:30. My body will usually naturally wake up on weekends around 8 or 9, but 6:30? Never.

     night owl for sure. Most of the reason is due to work, i work late hours full time so i obviously come home late and take a few hours to wine down. 

    However i dont sleep in like crazy like i use to in college, im almost always out of bed at the latest by 11am.
