Day 23: Morning or night?
Perhaps a bit of both but one more than the other!
Morning, well because that is how society operates and order to fit in one has to adapt to its daily cycle. It’s just the way it is. You wake up in the morning and start your day (some earlier than others). And if you have kids, then you’re bound to have mornings to get them where they need to be during the day and if you’re lucky you will experience peaceful mornings where nothing goes wrong or messy. The way of modern society, I guess.
However, I’m no early bird. In fact, when it comes to my own sleeping patterns I’m not like the rest and it’s safe to say that I’m a ‘night owl’ – marching off to bed at sensible hours proves to be somewhat a difficult challenge, not until I changed work. And after working ‘daytime’ for several years it’s fair to say that working night shifts suits me pretty well in this particular time in my life.
While aware that being a night owl may not be a healthy habit to have in the long run, however, at night it’s when I feel more energetic, invigorated and creative. And as a writer when I get the most work done.
So in order to be a part of society I do mornings but for my own preference and creativity I embrace nigh time and balance the two. I wrote a blog post on being a night owl – do you agree with the signs?
