I Am Not a Morning Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,717 People

    It’s just not for me.

    Some people get their energy from the early mornings, others become more active during the day. I’m obviously the type of person that belongs to the latter. I’ve started with an internship position earlier this month, and of course they’ve set me up to start every day at...

    Once upon a time, I knew what early mornings

    were. Waking up in a disoriented state at 4:45 am to get to my 6 am shop job, which partially took place outside, in the cold dark of a northern Pacific coast morning. The number of times I'd lazily swing my legs out of bed, sit on the edge looking at the floor through...

    I'm a night owl, not a morning person.

    Don't have many words in morning unless it's an issue that's on my heart and mind a lot. Alas, with my family and trying to get to the gym...am needing to reprogram myself to wake up at 5am. So I can get to gym before hubby goes to work. I have better days when I do this...

    I've never been a morning person & never will I

    be. It's not only hating having to wake up early but being mentally awake. I am not mentally awake until 10am & that goes for eating food too, nothing enters my body before that! & one huge pet peeve of mine... I hate morning annoying talkative people that just feel the...

    I hit the snooze button like five times in the

    morning and then rush to get ready for class. Every single day! I hate mornings so much, that's why on the weekends I sleep in till around noon

    mornings for me are hard.

    i feel such an overwhelming power to just stay where i am in the mornings when the alarm goes off.it is definitely my brains way of telling me i haven't had enough sleep.although when i was on anti depressants getting out of bed was easy.

    I don't consider myself a morning person.

    The only reason I am up early is to get ready for work. However I have learned to enjoy the silence and beauty of mornings. The sunrise can be amazing and again it's so quiet. I do enjoy the the silence! It's just me and I love it!

    I Wish If I Could Wake Up Early...

    Aahhh!!! I always wonder how some people manage to wake up so early. If you ask me, I've been working on it since my childhood and despite all my mom's lectures, it's still one of the toughest tasks for me. I don't understand why I'm always awake during the nights and love...

    I hate getting up early to go to school.

    It takes me awhile before I'm fully awake. Until that happens, I maybe be grumpy or moody. Just depends I guess. I wish I could sleep until around 10 or 11 every morning.

    I'm not sure why but

    for some reason I always wake up very early. Once I wake up I can't just go back to sleep. This happens at least 5 days a week. Just because I wake up early DOES NOT mean I'm a morning person..LOL. It's probably best not to speak to me until I've been awake for at least an...

    Sometimes I'm not a morning person.

    I may wake up pissed off or mad about something the day before. Yes I do go to bed angry at times.

    I have 2 alarm clocks.

    One over the dinner table. One beside my pillow. I set the first one at the early time and the second one like 20 minutes later. My strategy is to wake up, walk to the dinner table and stop the alarm clock. Then, 20 minutes later, be annoyed by the second alarm and wake up. The...

    I'm not. Most definitely not.

    But being or not just depends on where you set your circadian rhythm.

    Okay, if you get my EP handle (Nyx) then you

    absolutely get that I'm not a morning person. If you don't, then you probably just think I'm from New York (which I love but I'm not).I don't like the morning/daylight because it just seems wrong! All that freaking daylight, giddy people, talking, freaking commuters...
