ARE YOU A NIGHT OR A DAY PERSON?

SHE WRITES:

My mother-in-law used to tell me that instead of staying up late at night and waking up late the next day, I should sleep early and wake up early. Staying up late at night (or until early morning) isn't a problem for me but waking up early is a real struggle, especially if it's cold or raining! I also like working at night because I think it's more peaceful so I can focus on what I'm doing more. Although I've read that it's healthy to sleep early or at least before 11pm, it's still something I have to force myself to do. Even if I can function well during the day, I still believe I am a night person because of the reasons i stated =D.

How about you? Are you a night or day person?
A. night
B. day
C. others (pls. specify)

YOU WRITE: (please read comments portion for the FULL version of the comments posted)

A. night
mary: I have always been a night person. I can work late into the night...I do most of my work at night as I can focus better when my kids are asleep.I've enjoyed your blog very much.
ramon: Waking up each morning has been easy for me...However, getting up had always been such a task. I close my eyes for a moment and then, ta da! i had slept again! I guess that makes me a night person.
ha.ha.wait.what?: I'm probably more of a night person than a morning person. I hate to wake up in the mornings. I hit my snooze button on my alarm literally like 20-30 times.
reedwrites: I am definitely a night owl. If I didn't have to get up in the morning I would stay up until the morning LOL.Nice blog by the way!
Kathryn: I was once a night person . . . now, by necessity I've had to be a day person. But, I suppose if it were up to me, I'd be a night person.
Every Photo Tells A Story: Night, all the way :)Unless, I have really great plans for the day, then I can get my self going really early.

B. day
lee: Without a doubt, a morning person. Once I wake up and start thinking, that is it. I have to get up. In the evening I start shutting down by 11pm. Sometimes earlier.
meggie: I am an early morning person. I used to be the opposite when I was younger, but now, I love the peace of the early morning.

C. others (pls. specify)
jenners: C. I've found that I am really at my best from about 10:00 am until about 1:00 pm. I am neither a day or night person--I'm a midday person...In reading this, I'm beginning to think I might have a sleep disorder!!!
posh post: Mine would be C.sometimes i am really revved up in the morning. sometimes in the afternoon going into the evening.
henry the dog: I sleep alot of the time but mum and Uncle Hugh normally go to bed about 10pm. I think she's a mid-morning person. That's usually when she starts to come out of her 'zombie' mode - after her millionth cup of coffee.
philip: When I was a bit younger (winking)...I was a night person. Somebody who doesn't miss partying and socializing.But when I grew a little older (smirking)...I think I'd better get a longer rest at night time.:)
amy: Well, I'm a morning person and a night person, but not a middle of the day person...I am pretty productive in the morning...I generally don't go to bed until after midnight.
lynn: I'm a "revolving door" when it comes to sleep. On some nights I'm in bed by seven...Then, on other nights, I'm a night owl and up poking around till ten or eleven...I'm usually awake by six so I can spend a little time with my family before they dash out the door.
mrs.h: I would say I'm both. I love mornings but I really like the quiet stillness of the night too. I'm far more creative at night though.
why: C. I am both. A day person during the week, when I am forced to wake up early for work. A night person on the weekends.

I have always been a night person. I can work late into the night. As I've gotten older, it is harder to get up early in the morning if I've stayed up late the night before. I do most of my work at night as I can focus better when my kids are asleep.

I've enjoyed your blog very much.

C. I've found that I am really at my best from about 10:00 am until about 1:00 pm. I am neither a day or night person--I'm a midday person. I love to sleep in (but am rarely allowed due to an early rising child) and I could easily take a nap every day. I can't really stay up much past 11:00 pm either. In reading this, I'm beginning to think I might have a sleep disorder!!!

Mine would be C.

sometimes i am really revved up in the morning. sometimes in the afternoon going into the evening.

my down time would be after lunch, that is my naptime, till 4 pm..hehe

Lee said...

Without a doubt, a morning person. Once I wake up and start thinking, that is it. I have to get up. Oh, I can toss and turn for a little while but I don't get back to sleep. In the evening I start shutting down by 11pm. Sometimes earlier.

Henry the Dog said...

I sleep alot of the time but mum and Uncle Hugh normally go to bed about 10pm. Mum likes sleeping. She gets REALLY cranky if she doesn't get loads of hours sleep every night - I wonder if that's why she never had puppies? I think she's a mid-morning person. That's usually when she starts to come out of her 'zombie' mode - after her millionth cup of coffee.

Well...

When I was a bit younger (winking)...I was a night person. Somebody who doesn't miss partying and socializing.

But when I grew a little older (smirking)...I think I'd better get a longer rest at night time.:)

Waking up each morning has been easy for me ( thanks for the help of an alarm clock, my phone's organizer and my noisy dog ). However, getting up had always been such a task. I close my eyes for a moment and then, ta da! i had slept again! -_-

I guess that makes me a night person..so, C.

Amy said...

Well, I'm a morning person and a night person, but not a middle of the day person. I am pretty productive in the morning, the sort hobble along after lunch and thru dinner. But come 7 or 8pm, I'm revved up again and raring to go. I generally don't go to bed until after midnight.

Lynn said...

Thank you for the invitation!

I'm a "revolving door" when it comes to sleep. On some nights I'm in bed by seven (especially with the time change - I'm ALL out of whack). Then, on other nights, I'm a night owl and up poking around till ten or eleven. Still, no matter how early or late I get in bed, I'm usually awake by six so I can spend a little time with my family before they dash out the door.

Ha Ha. Wait. What? said...

I'm probably more of a night person than a morning person. I hate to wake up in the mornings. I hit my snooze button on my alarm literally like 20-30 times. I always ask myself, "Is my job THAT important??"

reedwrites said...

Hoot! Hoot! I am definitely a night owl. If I didn't have to get up in the morning I would stay up until the morning LOL.

Nice blog by the way! And thanks for the comment.

I would say I'm both. I love mornings but I really like the quiet stillness of the night too. I'm far more creative at night though.

I would love to follow your blog but I'm new to blogging and don't know how to do that if it doesn't have a "follow this blog" link.

Kathryn said...

Tough call. I was once a night person . . . now, by necessity I've had to be a day person. But, I suppose if it were up to me, I'd be a night person. If I could wake at 11 or so, though and take it from there, all would be good. :o)

meggie said...

I am an early morning person. I used to be the opposite when I was younger, but now, I love the peace of the early morning. I now find I like a little nap in the afternoon!

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

Night, all the way :)
Unless, I have really great plans for the day, then I can get my self going really early. But, with a few cups of coffee to help!

WHY said...

C. I am both.

A day person during the week, when I am forced to wake up early for work. And, I can wake up rather quickly.

A night person on the weekends, when I like to lounge around and catch up on my sleep.

missy said...

i kind of do both...stay up later for a few nite then it all catches up with me and have to go to bed by 10pm for a nite or 2.....but i hate to get out of bed in the mornings!!! i hit the snooze button 2 or 3 times in the mornings!!!!

GĂ©raldine said...

I'm definitely a day one! Night is for sleeping... well normally...I like the brightness of the day light even if night ahs got something special.. a nuway I'm too drowsy to benefit from the exciting side of night !

gege said...

Night. I usually sleep anywhere between 2 and 4 AM. A few times I went beyond that time, and a couple of times I just didn't sleep at all until the next evening.

I definitely work better at night. Though there are things I can only do in the daytime, like making phone calls, meeting, teaching and training.

I usually wake up past 9 AM, except when I need to be somewhere early.

These sleeping schedules aren't really a problem for me, but can be an issue because my husband sleeps and wakes up early.

Maybe I can change, and sometimes I do sleep at normal hours but then eventually I revert to my weird hours.

t. said...

DAY! i'm only 24, but my friends call me "grandma" every time i decline an invitation to an event that starts after 9 pm. living on an island for over a year now has caused my circadian rhythms to be very closely aligned with the sun i suppose...
