    Definitely a night owl. I usually get anywhere from 4-6 hours of sleep a night during the week, but I’ve been this way since high school. I just enjoy the wee hours of the day better than the morning. Somehow I’ve always been able to manage to function at a day job despite the lack of sleep. I sleep forever on the weekends, though.

    Night owl! Unfortunately for me baby is an early bird…no advice other than caffeine.

    When I’m working (on Mat Leave for another two weeks) I’m up for work at 6:30 and have been for the past 5 years and nope, still definitely a night owl! I can manage to get up, but it’s still miserable and no matter how early I’m up, nor how little I sleep (baby isn’t sleeping through the night) I am just not tired in the evenings. I try to nap when he naps but only manage to fall back to sleep during his first nap of the day.

    I’m a night owl whether I want to or not.  I have worked 3rd shift for most of my life that I’ve been working.  Because of this, I cannot break out of 3rd shift mode so most nights (unless I’m super super tired) I’m up til 3-4am which sucks.

    On top of that, I’m a light sleeper.

    I really wish I had normal sleeping habits.

    Well my username is nightowl lol so I guess that gives you my answer! I have been a night owl my whole life. Even in primary school and high school I went to bed very late and woke up with just enough time to get ready in the morning. My parents are also night owls so I think that’s where I get it from ๐Ÿ™‚

    To be honest, I LOVE waking up early and being productive in the morning. But while it’s cold and wintry I just find it so hard to get out of bed any earlier than I need to ๐Ÿ™‚

    In the summer months I plan to be more of a morning person as my day is generally more fulfulling and productive that way.

    sugarcloud :  I was never a morning person but working 8:30-4:30 forced me to get into the habit of waking up early (6:30am). Before this job, I could easily stay up until 11pm or midnight, but I also slept in later. Now I’m ready for bed by 10:30-11pm at the latest. This holds true for weekends. Even though I can usually sleep in, I’m usually up by 9:30-10am instead of noon lol They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, so start waking up and going to bed earlier on a regular basis. Once you get up earlier, you’ll start getting tired earlier and you’ll want to be in bed sooner!

    Both? Depends on my sleep schedule but soemtimes I have to get up really early…I’m usually very energized then. But days when I can do whatever, I always wake up late and stay up late!

    I’m a lazy night owl who unfortunately married a hard-working early bird.

    So now I wake up at the same time as him and then need naps later.

    Night own for sure, hubby is an early bird. We compromise by spending *fun* time together in the evening and when he goes to sleep I get to wander around the house and do whatever I like to do while he sleeps โ˜บ I also have to wake up in the a.m so naps are my friend ๐ŸŒธ
