Do You Consider Yourself a Morning Person?

A recent Gallup poll found that the majority of American adults feel their best, on a typical day, between the hours of 5:00 am and 11:59 am, making them "morning people."

Mornings definitely have their merits, and some people find that it is the best time to schedule and stick to a workout. Others, would never classify themselves as morning people.

How about you...

I get up at 2am every day I dont start work until 5am I am only ten miles from work I need at least 2 hours alone to wake up to even function the rest of the day , I really hate it if my husband stays up that night , then all he wants to do is talk it ruins my whole day I need the peace and quiet in the morning to wake up that is why I get up early , he dosent get it

I am tired of being thought of as lazy because I cannot get up in the morning. I live the same life as everyone else: I work, I have household chores, I exercise, I read, I do freelance work, I watch TV, etc. But I prefer to live that life from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., rather than 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Ever since I was a little kid I've preferred to stay up late, happily working or playing until 1 or 2 in the morning. A morning person I have never been, nor will I ever be. (And don't tell me I'll change when I have kids...I'm not having any!)

I do better at 7 am if I haven't gone to bed yet than I do if I have to get up at that time after 8 hours of sleep! lol

I hate mornings with a passion. I hit th snooze about ten times before I actually wake up... seriously.

I'm not really a morning person, but I never hit snooze and I hate sleeping in past 10 because I feel like it's a waste of time. I'm not a night owl either so I guess that makes me an afternoon/early evening person.

I'm totally a night owl. I prefer to exercise around 10:00pm and I do my best work at 2am. Too bad I now have a job that requires me to start @ 7:30am- it has messed with my rhythm and now I'm tired all the time.

I am a morning person. I always seem so much more productive during that time of day and that's without breakfast too!

I am surprised so many are morning people! I cannot imagine that. My daughter isn't a morning person either, so trying to get her out the door in the morning... we're like oil and water!

I'm totally a morning person. I wake up easily and I love the sunshine in the morning and the smell of mornings.

I'm not a morning person at all. I don't want to talk to anyone, even hear someone else. I need peace and quiet at that time.

If mornings were to start around 10:00 a.m. I *could* be a morning person. I never, ever, ever want to get up. But once I'm up, I'm up. But I prefer evenings/nights, and we usually live by a different clock, going to bed on average 2:00 - 3:00 a.m. - and very often dinner is 10:00 - 11:00 p.m.

Syako, I am like you. I do not talk in the morning though. I need my time to do whatever it is and be done with it. My boyfriend hates it!

I press the snooze (I think it has to do with my erratic work-out schedule), but I love mornings. I do most of my errands in the a.m. and take classes early too.

Oh, hell, no, I HATE mornings. I much prefer the nighttimes. =) I feel more energized starting in the late afternoons and stretching into early evenings. =)

I'm a morning person when it gets light early. Winter is hard for me. I also need enough sleep. I wish it were cut and dry. I'm def not a night owl though. I could go to bed at 9 and be happy as a clam.

Never used to be a morning person when I was younger. Now that I am older have a family, 2 dogs and a career I kind of have no choice but to be. The alarm is set for 5am these days. I find that waking up earlier and giving yourself plenty of time in the morning is the key to making it enjoyable.

I'm not a morning person, but my job forces me to be, which sucks.

Definitely a morning person. Up at five with the blender going for a pre-workout fruit smoothie! Plus sunrises and beautiful scenery (my apartment has a garden out, that's about all the scenery I get).

I'm really good at getting up, no hitting the snooze, no dragging my ass...once that buzzer or alram goes off, I'm up and ready to get prepared for my day! But, I also like the night too, I like the darkness and the stars and moon. So mayeb I am a monring and night person?!?!?!
