Both.

Early riser and love my nights too..
While I do get a good night's rest, I often have to get jammies on a tad earlier so I can wind down, and then get my head in the "bedtime mode" as it takes me awhile to get to sleep now.

But definitely up with the birds each morning! heh.

Morning Glory...but struggle as I live with Night Owls in my family home. The bonus is found in getting up to a quiet home and having "me" time!

For me it's morning glory. I used to be a night owl until I hit my thirties. No more partying for me.

I have always been a night owl, I find that I am more creative at night... perhaps it's the quiet... and I love the moon. But I am trying to remedy that to get a better sleep and get more out of the day.

Naturally, I'm a night owl. Even when I was a kid, I hated getting up in the morning and found it difficult to sleep. Over time I learned how to adapt to the compulsory social norm ;-) by staying on the same schedule all the time and keeping an elaborate bedtime ritual. (Hot herbal tea, reading quietly, no phones after a certain time, computer off by a certain time)

I still internally yell NO! when the alarm goes off, but I roll out of bed and get to it. :-)

A little of both, but more of a morning glory. I'm up at 0330 to get my husband and I ready for work. This time still give me the opportunity to have some "me" time, outside where I can listen to the night song and smell the earth as she's s awakening. Love it! emoticon

I've always a morning person. When I was a toddler, I'd eat cottage cheese and canned baked beans and then finger paint on the rug with them while my family all slept. They chained the refrigerator to make me stop ruining the rugs. When I worked a swing shift, I had trouble getting to sleep if I didn't fall asleep before 3 am because my body would say, It's Day -- Wake UP!

Now, though, I'm tired every morning. I still wake up around 6 am, but need a morning nap to be ready for the day. I expect that reduced weight, balanced digestive functions, and improved sleep quality will eliminate the need for a daily morning nap, eventually.

I was a morning person - up most days by 6 AM, sometimes even earlier. Then I started my current job, which is mostly night shifts that end around 12:30 AM. Now, I'm a night owl, up until 2 or 3 in the morning, sleeping sometimes until after Noon.

Hi everyone, I'm a lark... Generally up between 4am-5am, exercising by 6am, breakfasts done and kids off to school and then my day begins. Generally pass out about 11pm.

Definitely a morning person. Love getting up and watching the world wake up while the sun begins to rise (or the rain begins to fall). Early morning is my quiet and solitude and gets me ready the day. Exercise at 9 and home by 10:30 and my day can start officially.

morning glory - I enjoy watching the sun come up from the horizon. Everything is fresh and new in the morning and I'm ready to start another great new day. I especially love summertime mornings, sitting on my backyard swing overlooking my beautiful perennial garden...sipping that first cup of coffee, playing ball with the dogs, watching the hummingbirds and butterflies. It's a little slice of heaven for me. emoticon emoticon

Night Owl, for sure. Although I get up very early three days a week to attend bootcamp exercise classes, I struggle, and even have a problem getting to bed at the right time even if I know I will only have a few hours sleep before class. I've been this way all my life, except right after I go camping. I think being in nature resets my clocks to the natural way, but real life intrudes eventually, and I go back to late nights.

I'm a "Morning Glory Night Owl"--Day or night, I get in my exercise at any time. I prefer mornings just for convenience but it's never a consistent time every day.

But there's something about the morning that I just love, especially when the sun hasn't come up. The gym I go to has big windows so it's nice watching the sun rise--endless possibilities for a bright new day!

I guess I'm a night owl who wants to be a morning glory. emoticon

No matter how hard I try to go to bed early, I'm usually going to bed around 12 or 1. Then it's 8:30 or 9 before I'm able to drag myself out of bed!

Do you consider yourself to be a morning or night person?

Morning Glory?
Night Owl?
Something else?

I'm a night owl I don't do mornings well, but get this burst of energy about 9-10 p.m.
