Nice sunrise, and cloud formations, it's the best time of the day to be up when the world is quite before the craze begins!:)
Thomas, kind of how I feel about it. The silence and peace of an early summer sunrise is nice.
That is okay in summer but not in winter. That is one plus for retiring, being able to snuggle under blankets in winter and get up when you like. BTW what is winter?????
Diane, here winter sun comes up quite late, so no big deal. To my surprise, winter is when Queenslanders need to use heating.
I have developed a theory about morning and evening people. Morning people are job-focused, dedicated, Conservative-voting, church-going citizens who are reliable, trust worthy and careful with their money. However morning people have no time for their family, are too tired in the evening for socialising and find the idea of dogs a bit dirty.Evening people are a bit lazy, don't give 100% attention to work, vote Labour, have houses in the city or in inner suburbs, love dogs, love music, love cafe culture. They sleep through sunday mornings and never get to church except for weddings.
Brilliant Hels. I take it that you are an evening person.
Helen is definitely an evening person :)
Hello Andrew:We suppose that we are morning people as the alarum is always set for 6.00am. But then, equally, we seldom are in bed before 11.00pm.
JayLa, I consider seven hours sleep is adequate, as long as you can take a nanna nap. Does Budapest do siesta?
No, and we never can understand why not. Particularly as summer temperatures are in the mid 30C [doubtless cool for you!!].
JayLa, while we have hot temperature extremes, mostly our weather in in the twenties, today 22, tomorrow 26.
You'll be pleased to know that the older you get the less sleep you need. But a nanna nap helps.
So I am learning Bill. Nanna naps are wonderful.
I used to get my best sleep between 5am and 7am, so deeply asleep even the kids wouldn't wake me. Then I got a job....now I'm a morning person, awake before the sun comes up, getting things done, usually in bed again by 9.30pm unless I don't have to work the next day.
River, I tend to sleep my best between four and six. A really good sleep. No matter how early I have had to get up, like 4.30, I don't think I have ever gone to sleep before 10.00.
I am a morning person who doesn't like getting up in the dark, if that isn't a contradiction.
Victor, you are rugged cave man type. Sleep to the pattern of the sun.
I'm a morning person in denial. I always thought I was a night owl, until last year. Then I started waking up at 5am no matter what. Now I find I do my best work in the morning and am useless in the afternoon. I'm not sure I like it.
Fen, like me, you are adaptable. I do my best work late at night but it needs polishing in the early morning.
Late to bed and early to rise,does that make me 'bi' haha! or just tired most of the time!
Makes you a high achiever I think Grace.
