I am a morning person, irritating to some, I know! But that is just the way I am. My whole family are morning people. We get up early especially on weekends and do stuff. Or hope to do stuff. We go for a run, cycle or play golf (in my brother’s case). We don’t need 5 cups of strong caffeine based beverage to wake up, although I won’t turn one down.
The problem is when your partner is not a morning person! How do you get your clocks to be in sync? It is very difficult when you are up at 6 and wide awake and raring to go when your partner wants to sleep in till midday. It is also a problem at night, because come 9:30 I want to be in bed, tuck up and fast asleep.
So now the question? Is being a morning person psychological or do some people really just work on different times. Is it not more of a fact that you want to sleep late because you are always up past midnight or conversely you can get up early because you have already had your 8 hours and are feeling refreshed. Although I must admit I can’t really sleep late even if I was up past midnight.
So how many of you are morning people and do your partners run on the same clock. And if not how do you cope.
