Is it possible for a night owl to become a morning person?

    Well, I'm 41 and I've never, ever been a morning person. I'd have to say no, in my case. Others might not have as much trouble with it, especially younger folks.

    I can't believe I just said "younger folks."

    I don't think it's possible, I think it's mostly your genetic predisposition, not something that a person can change, at least in my opinion and in what I have seen.

    It is definitely possible. When I was younger (teens and 20s), I was definitely a night owl. I would sleep until about 11 AM and I wouldn't go to bed until about 1-3 AM. Now, I'm completely the opposite. I'm a chipper morning bird getting up between 5-6:30 AM and go to bed around 10-11 PM. Recently, I read a health journal where research was conducted on this very subject. It stated that for physiological and chemical reasons, young people are natural night owls while older folks are early morning birds.

    Yep! I did. It seems to come naturally along with advancing age ;-)

    I'm trying not to be a night owl. But since I work at home I tend to not worry when I go to bed. But if its 4 in the morning than I freak out.
    I think if I train myself to fall asleep by midnight I'm okay.
    However I do like the idea of being up late while everyone else is asleep.
    It's a good time to watch my cat. Or do some writing.
    I like to just sit in the quiet.
    But I'd rather be asleep and get up earlier rather than later.
    And if I need a nap. Then I'll take one.

    Last year while in the hospital the doctors were in at 4 AM that didn't make me happy.
    That's too early to think or comprehend anything from anyone.
    Seven is a better time to tell me important things.

    I really enjoy both aspects of being a night owl and a morning person.
    Is it okay to be undecided?? I'm an unaided night owl/ rooster:)

    In my experience, no. I've always been someone who prefers sleep in and then be up and about later in the day. I'd wager to say the best times of my life have largely taken place after the fall of darkness.

    After 25 years of late rising and late bedtimes, I made a tactical error: I married a morning person. A teacher, no less!

    Since then, I've pretty much had to adapt to her schedule, and I've done so happily for the most part. But it has NEVER felt natural to me, and whenever the opportunity to stay out late and avoid getting up early arises, my body just falls right back into my old nocturnal patterns.

    The nighttime is the right time!
