So what time do you get up in the morning

Do you think getting up early in the morning makes you really get the worm? Isn't there times when late at night is when you get to see or be a part of the real gems in life? My wife gets up at 4 AM every morning, I get up near 7AM, but we go to bed by 9:30 PM, so I never see late night talk shows anymore.

What do you think?

These researchers that run sleep labs found out that the internal clock of humans is more in a 25 than a 24 hours per day rhythm.
Every day it is "recalibrated" by the day/night change.

That seems to me the cause why I always like to sleep a little longer in the morning.

I also get up at seven during the week, but on week ends I tend to avoid the single digit hours (am).

Even with coffee, I'm not a morning person. I get up around 9:30, and start work around 11.

I tend to sling my best code after the family goes to bed and the house gets quiet. So I tend to work some during the day to communicate with people, and then work seriously from 10PM to 2AM or so.

I am not a morning person, I rarely get into the office before 11AM or noon.

No, but I like being up when it's light out. I'd rather get up at 8am than stay up until 2am.

When I wake up and look at the clock it shows 7:45 am, but I keep it 30 min ahead , so it is still 7:15 am. But wifey+kid wake up around 5ish and they are out of the home by 7am.
so I never see late night talk shows anymore.

why don't you record it, you could zip through commercials later. I record jay leno everyday .... for a few laughs... good for heart.

I get up whenever Cozmo starts pawing me on the head. That's usually just a little after 8:00 AM.

I get up around 6:00 am in the morning it is because I've to start work at 8:30 and my commuting time is 1.30 hours in my previous job I used to wake up at 8 AM as I've to start from 9:00 and it was only 1/2 hour distance from my home, so it all depend upon the situation I like to wake up as late as possible in the morning.

I remember a cartoon, a man in bed, just waked up, one eye closed the other looking at the radio. Out of the radio comes the voice: "Good morning fellows, it is now 7 o'clock, apparent time is 5:15 am".

If no one wakes me up, I get up around 8:15-8:30am, feeling fresh and rested well.

One can easily wake me up between 7:45-8:15am. Before that if someone wants to wake me up, I give her/him a tough time. Worse, I talk in sleep. So at times I have even told my elder brother or sister that I have completed all my studies in the night itself.. only to get up and ask them- "why didn't you wake me up?"

My husband seems to possess this awesome gift from God- he can wake up at any time he decides to or sets the alarm to. If we have to go somewhere early morning, he keeps 45 min only for me - just to wake me up!! I make kindness challenging face like "puss in boots in Shrek II" and keep begging to let me sleep

But when he does get me out of the bed, all ready to go, I enjoy looking at people on the road who are just about starting their day. [yes you do see that on roads in India!!]

Even though it is once in a while and its only because of someone else, I do admit, getting up and at work early gives me the feeling of superiority. I kind of feel being ahead of time. It definitely is a good feeling - only to be consistently experienced by someone who can get out of bed early morning.

What? People get up in the morning?

I slept 16 hours last night, from 12:30 AM until 4:30 PM this afternoon.

I am seriously jealous! My day starts at ten past six every morning, and I will be on the train just before seven, and at work just after eight - and to make it worse, I just can't bring myself to bed before midnight! That's not all, if I sleep past seven on weekends, I am guaranteed to wake up with a nasty headache which lasts the whole day!

you're either very sensitive to light or this is around the time you fall into R.E.M. this can really hurt the eyes. I have the same problem.

I don't get a bad headache, just a slight one, but I find that happens to me if I sleep too much.

Yeah - I was awake at half past five (05:30) this morning - just in time to miss my train.. and then did not get to work until quarter to eleven (10:45) too. Expect to be here until late.

But tomorrow I'll be sleeping in till five to nine (08:55) - and getting to work for quarter past (09:15).

Fortunately I currently work on a project very close to home (6 km = less than 4 miles). I get up at about 7:30 AM and work from about 8:15 AM to 5:00 PM, after work I'm home at 5:15 PM.

My alarm goes off at 7:30AM, I crawl out of bed around 8:00AM, turn on my computers, hit the shower, walk Ajax [my dog] for 30-40 minutes. Grab a drink, walk up to my second floor and log into my work at 9AM.

If I feel like sleeping in, I skip my shower. Does not hurt to smell a bit when I work at home. LOL

On days i go to work, my alarm goes off at 6, and i'm in the shower by 6:10.

On days when I don't work, I usually wakeup around 7-7:30, and on rare occasion can sleep until 8:30 (if my daughter lets me).

That sounds terrible. Why does she need to do that?

I get up at seven on weekdays. In summer it isn't so bad but now the days are getting shorter and it's still dark when the alarm clock goes of. That makes it much harder.

During the weekend I wake up when the cats start to try to break the door down.

When I was young, I used to work in bars and restaurants a lot. I would get up around ten, start work around four, finish around midnight and go to bed around two. That was perfect. I wish I could still keep those hours.

Actually she doesn't need to get up at 4AM, she just does. It is her internal clock, no matter what time she goes to bed, she will always wake up at 4AM, she can't go back to bed.

Yeah, when we were young, The good ole days of staying up late, I can't do that anymore, even if I tried.
