I am actually an afternoon person, but if I had to pick one, it would be morning.

Well, I've managed to shift to 2am and up at 9:30am. Been working on that. But it's that, or 3am -10 am.

I am definitely a morning person. My dad always got up early and he said it was the best part of the day to enjoy, especially at the cottage. I guess that I get it from him.

Morning person, as in I wake up early. I'm not one of those chipper morning people, though.

Up until I had kids I was a night owl. Now I am a bit of both. I get up early easily and I stay up later than everyone in the house. Which is nice since I get some alone time twice a day.

Both....my challenge is the late afternoon when sleepiness comes over me but I am usually up and at it at 5:30 or 6 am and then turning out the lights after mid night although I think I will go to sleep early :)

I am a night owl. I usually go to bed at 3am, and get up at 10. I sometimes go to bed at 4 and get up at 11, but I prefer being up at 10.

I tried unsuccessfully to change that pattern using all kinds of techniques, and failed. Left to my own devices I would go to bed at 6am and get up at 1:30pm. But that really makes life in this morning people dominated world difficult, so I have at least managed the 3-10.

Honouria

I'd say a morning person, but for the past few years I've been more of a night owl. That's only because my daughter keeps me busy and on my toes through out the day. When night time comes that's when I can catch up on my favorite shows and watch them undisturbed.

This is a great question, as it can actually be really important as to how you eat. if you are a morning person, up early, no alarm, full of energy, that can indicate that you have a high metabolism and a breakfast with full protein can work well for you.

Those who are slow to get going in the morning, need their coffee and quiet time, usually have a slow metabolism and a very small breakfast works best for them. Dinner is the main meal of the day when their metabolism is highest and they can more easily burn it off.

You do need to take into account that if you have a lot of sweet cravings, you would need full protein at all meals to help curb the sugar addiction.

I am a morning person.
