I've always been more of a night owl than a morning person. Getting up early for me is borderline torturous — there's nothing more painful than leaving a warm, snuggly bed before sunrise. One of the worst jobs I had, even though it paid good money and was easy, was nannying my senior year, because I had to get up before the sun.
But I will admit that the few times I've gotten up early (or stayed up really late) and watched the sunrise, it was amazing. Unless I'm out with friends having a late night, there's just not much to do once it gets dark, but there are hours in the morning that are totally wasted because I'm asleep. I want to start going to bed a little earlier and reclaim those morning hours. I want time to make coffee and eggs, enjoy it on the porch, walk my dog, and spend time with Todd (if I can get him out of bed) — all before even going to work.
Do you think it's possible to become a morning person if you're not one at all?
