I'm a morning person. Unashamedly. I like to get up at 5:30 AM, when the whole world still seems to be asleep, and take my time with my mug of black tea, my computer screen, my thoughts. I'll take the dog for a jog around the block. Sometimes I'll work out in front of the TV.
I'm at my best and my most creative in the mornings. After lunch, don't bother! Stick a fork in me, wrap me up to go because I am DONE!
I wasn't always like this. A few years ago my crazy research-psychologist husband got it into his head that we would sleep better if we went to bed and woke up at the same time every day (given one hour leeway) even on the weekends. Science said it would work, so we tried it! I may have been a little whine-y at first, but after a month or two, I noticed that I didn't get sleepy during the day. Like, ever.
And I also started to treasure those early morning hours. I think heaven is going to be an eternal Saturday morning - peaceful, beautiful, and with the whole day of possibility ahead.
What about you? Are you an early bird or a night owl?
