I am not the morning person, and believe it or not, I never get up at the crack of the dawn. I need to get up before 8am every morning due to the work. Every morning, I feel exhausted and out of it. So, I am kind of envy of the morning person for their energized looks in the early morning.

Aaaa. Well!!!. 

I’m someone a bite more moderated and flexible with sleeping and waking up hours. In fact, I can wake up one day soon and the other day late regarding my agenda and situations. But normally, I do like to wake up not at the crack of dawn, but soon enough. It makes me I feel good and start my new day with high energy. I found myself nothing when I sleep-over especially if i get used to that. I might wake up for a few days late specifically in the weekend, nevertheless I’m definitely a morning person. 

Being a morning person and watching my Shamani when she is snorkeling makes me to laugh in the morning. I starts my day always with smile and I do believe it will go on. In addition that, I feel so happy in the morning of each day that I’ve taken one day more to live with my family, share my moments beside them and love them. I’m pretty sure u r too.

I like to wake up early to see the sunrise. And the whole day is yours.You can reach so much and a lot of work can be handle. But independtly from liking to get up early; for me it is more important to sleep 7- 8 hours to have energy for the day- so when I go early to bed I can wake up early and I will be full of energy. Sometimes to be a night owl is enjoyable as well. Good night.

I’m sadly not a morning person, but I hope to be soon. Getting up late at noon unintentionally makes me cranky because I miss a lot of things I could have done in the morning like exercising, studying, doing some chores and other things. I wish I could wake up at the crack of dawn some day and make it a long-lasting habit.

Early to bed and early to rise makes you healthy and wise. You might be a morning person or a late owl, depending on your biological clock. But it would be better to get up early in summer and a bit later in winter. In other words, you act yourself in conformity with the laws of nature as an element of the Universe. May God bless you all!
