    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.

      Never stop trying Vicki, there must be another reason we like to rise before the sun smile I also enjoy that time for myself, welcoming the new day.

    I'm 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 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!

      Wow, you must really like Jimmy Fallon! I do too. Except I'd never be able to stay awake to watch his show. I catch snippets on YouTube or Facebook. He's so darn funny. Sweet dreams GF!smile

    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.

    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.
