I’m an early riser…and when I say early I mean EARLY.
I’ve gotten myself into a habit of being in bed by/around/slightly after 9pm and waking up between 4-5am. That may seem ridiculous to some of you but for me it’s ideal.
In the evenings I’m practically useless.
After working all day I come home and just don’t have the desire to be productive. Give me dinner, some time in front of the TV and let’s call it a night. Nothing good is going to come of a sleepy Kerry.
After a 9pm bedtime and a solid 7-ish hours of sleep, 4am comes around and I’m ready to go.
At 4am I feel like I have the world to myself.
I come downstairs and am greeted by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
For the next hour I have no interruptions, no to-do lists to worry about, no nothing. It’s my time to sit down and enjoy my coffee, catch up on blogs or scour Pinterest.
(Once I get some coffee in me) I find my mind is more alert and active at this time of day. I start to make those to-do lists, respond to emails, get a head start on laundry or tidying the kitchen. I feel motivated, ready to tackle the day ahead.
My workouts and runs usually take place between 5-6am. Sure sometimes staying in my snuggly bathrobe sounds more appealing but the feeling I get afterwards is always worth it.
I recently came across this quote and deemed it the perfect summary of my feelings:
I even wrote this post at 4am!
So don’t be surprised when I comment on your blog or respond to comments you’ve left me between 4-5. That’s just how I roll. : )
I want to know…
Are you a night owl or a morning person?
What’s your usual bedtime?
If you don’t set an alarm, what time do you usually sleep until?
