    Are there any other Morning Larks out there anymore? People that prefer to go to sleep around 9-10pm and rise around 5-6am? Most people I know that are actually on that sleep schedule do so because of their job or other obligations. I can't be the only one who doesn't abhor the thought of getting up at 5am without coffee?

    From last one month. I have been sleeping at 1 A.M. and waking up at 6 A.M. Of course I take my 1 hour afternoon nap too.

    Morning person here. Up at 04:30, gym by 05:00 workout til 6:30 then at the office at 7:00. Lights out is 20:30. Weekend days I sleep in until 06:00.
    If I stay up past say, 22:00 on a weekend night I'll be a mess the next day.
    When I was in the monastery I did not have an alarm clock to get me up. Now I do use one...

    I get up with the sun now matter how late I'm up so I guess by definition a morning person. Though like probably most people my energy for workouts peaks around noon-2:00pm.

    If we're a dying breed it's probably because there's now 24 hour access to entertainment - in my day you just had 5 stations of broadcast TV and they all signed off around 1:00am running the Star Spangled Banner and a test pattern. (To this day I yawn whenever I hear The Star Spangled Banner.) In Art Deco's day, people went to bed at sundown to conserve candlepower (xxoo).

    I love mornings, even on the weekends. And I hate sleeping in, short of being sick. I just feel like I get so much more done when I get up early, AND I get it done so much more quickly and efficiently!

    I sleep between 9-10 and wake up at 5-5:30 on my own. Of course, I still put the alarm just in case, but it rarely has to wake me up. Even my 2-yr old kid works on this schedule.

    Sometimes, like the past couple of nights, I sleep very late and only sleep 3 or 4 hours to finish some work but still wake up at the same time.

    Glad to hear that I'm not the only one! icon_lol.gif

    My alarm is set for 5am every weekday and I haven't had coffee in years. Morning people FTW!

    I'm a unique combination of Daywalker and Night Owl; being able to stay up late, and walk up early; though my mind and batteries usually die off in the afternoon cause of that; which is fine cause I'm either napping or my brain is trying to sleep while I "look at" the news.

    Up sometimes as early as 4:30. Usually go from sound asleep to wide awake. And once my brain wakes up can't shut it off. So I try to get a run and/or a workout in before work.

    Well, do I ever have a job for you! It's a two person gig, so you have got to bring a friend. Must be familiar with plowing, -scaping, have strong hands, but also know how to do intricate work. You don't need your own vehicle and must be good with pets.icon_wink.gif

    Have always been a morning person, even as a kid.
    Not into sleeping in; I feel like I've missed something if I did.

    when I´m on my own and given a week or two and no evening commitments or internet my body clock resets to get up about 5-6 and sleep at 10. Work and relationships across time zones make me get up later which I don´t like.
