Are you an early bird or a night owl?
I've always been an early bird. There's just something I've always enjoyed about waking up before daylight and witnessing a sunrise. How about you? Why are you a night owl or early bird?
I am an early bird - probably in my subconscious is the thought "early to bed, early to rise, makes a man ( or woman) wealthy and wise!" But so far it hasn't worked, so I keep on trying!
Like you, I have always loved seeing the sunrise. I love that special time to myself, greeting the day.
I'm both....so you may think that I don't get enough sleep, but I do. I've always been a night owl and can't seem to break the habit.....and that's all it is. There's no reason for me to be up late.
Well...that' not true, exactly. I stay up late for Jimmy Fallon.....Except.....sometimes I will go to bed early and set my alarm to wake up for Jimmy.
My dog (and sometimes my cat)...wake me up really early, because they want to go out....the dog, NOT the cat. My cat is an indoor cat only! But, while the dog is out, I make a cup of coffee. If I'm still really tired, I will go back to bed and sleep another hr or 2. Either way, I'm up and about by 7.
If I wear out during the day from doing a lot.....I will take a nap....since retiring, I can take guilt-free naps. Not power naps.....can't do power naps. My naps are a couple of hrs. long.
Some nights I will go to bed EARLY...like 8 pm. if I'm totally exhausted......and sleep right through the night.
My dog wakes up no later than 5 am....he's a pain in my ash. If I don't let him out....he'll pee on the floor..1.) because he has to go and 2.) to punish me.
Did I go all over the place with this answer, gf? Hope I gave you enough info!! One day I want to normalize my habits.....just go to bed at a decent hour and get up early, stay up and get at least 8 or 9 hrs of sleep a night...all the time. BTW....going up now to get into bed...G'night Sweetheart!
I'm naturally a night owl. While I also love sunrises, I'm likely to take a look at the pretty sky through the window, crawl back under the covers and sleep for another couple of hours. But when night comes I seem to wake up as everyone else is winding down. That's when I'm likely to work on a painting, read several chapters in a book or watch some late night television . When I've had too much hub bub in the daytime, too much noise, music, tv, voices, then I especially enjoy the silence of the late evening hours. Staying up late has always been my way of satisfying my need for quiet, alone time each day.
Unfortunately I am a early bird not by my choice. Just like tomorrow or should I say in a few hours I will be getting up at 3 am to get ready to go to work at 4:30 am. I much rather sleep in lol
Actually I'm both, some what of an insomniac, I'm always up late until about 1 or 2 am, then I'm up by 5:30 am. I can go months like this until it eventually catches up to me & I'll sleep longer for a couple of days.
I'm an early bird, but by early bird I wake up around 7:30 am. The latest I can stay up is 11 pm. With age comes going to bed earlier.
I am an early bird and a night owl because I don't require a lot of sleep. After I did things to improve the quality of my sleep I started waking up hours before I wanted to get up. So I started going to be later. Now I wake up fairly early everyday and go to bed fairly late. I don't get up really early like you but I don't sleep in on weekends or holidays like most people do.
I don't like to waste daylight but I prefer to wake up when it is no longer dark outside.

Are you an "early bird" or a "night owl"?If you didn't have anything else (like a job) making you get up at a certain time, when would you get up/go to bed? And do you think creative people tend to be more early birds or night owls?

I am definitely a night owl. I enjoy watching TV, going on the computer or reading in peace while everyone is sleeping. However, I don't get out of bed till around 11 or 12 noon- I just have no energy in the morning!

Would you rather go to bed early and wake up early OR go to bed late and wake up late? Why?

I don't, can't remember last time I had one.Tonight that changes - I'm in bed now. Tucked up, hot drink, fresh pajamas, the lot. I've had to justify it to myself though. Now why would that be? When we're kids and your parents said 'right, 9pm - BED' it was excuses all the way. I'm laid here and...

What do you think of Jimmy Fallon as the new Tonight Show host?I have tried to like him in this new role, I really have. I think some of his things were funny on his own show, but in my opinion his interviews with people are painful to watch and I think he brings too much "Saturday Night...
