fark subby, fark the author, but especially fark that AverageAmericanGuy.  Tickle attacks are not an acceptable means of waking someone up.  It's been ruled torture by the UN.

Yes, because history is just overflowing with designers, inventors, artists, writers, theorists, architects, etc who were morning people....

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM, NOT THE SOLUTION! The world is advanced forward by night owls, morning people do the mindless grunt work.

I'm up at 05h00, on the road before anyone else so it is a pleasant 25 minute commute on empty roads rather than 90 minutes stuck in traffic. Quick stop for coffee on the way and at work by 06h00. Back home (again missing the traffic) between 15h15 and 15h30 and half an afternoon still to myself to go shopping, putter around the house or do anything else I damn well please.

AverageAmericanGuy: The biggest hurdle is just getting out of bed.

What I like to do is get out of bed, splash some cold water on my face to freshen up, then wake everyone up with a big smile and rousing tickle attack. Then I turn on the TV and do some stretches before sitting down to a hearty breakfast.

It helps to fake being happy and energetic. Eventually it becomes habit and not fake anymore.

It's awesome. And you're awesome, if you're awake!


If I was a member of your household, you would not have survived the first time you tried to wake me up. Also, everyone else would have been woken up by your screams and pleas for mercy.

Not even Hitler was a morning person.

So if you are a morning person, you're worse than him. Think about it. Now hit snooze.

Conspicuously absent from this list is ditch the caffeine.

I used to be a "night person" when I was addicted to caffeine.  My alarm would go off, I'd be tired and groggy, and I'd need that jolt of caffeine to fully wake up.

I got tired of living like that, so I stopped using caffeine.  Now, I am a "morning person".  I no longer need an alarm clock, and when I wake up, I'm refreshed and wide awake right away.  I do try to abide by some of TFA's other recommendations, like going to bed when one is tired, and trying to keep a more regular bedtime, even on weekends.

All you morning people go kill yourselves. Right now. I'll wait...

My natural body clock is set to a 25.5 hour day, meaning it's sheer hell maintaining any sort of a regular schedule at any time of the day or night. But I do my best work in the hours before sleep comes.

The moment I see that something eliminates "bad toxins in the body," I stop caring about the point that is being made, even if I know what they're talking about.

Another article that assumes everyone is the same and that what works for them must work for everybody.  As for the "no screens before bed" one, I fall asleep with the TV on every night, I can't fall asleep without it.

doglover: August11: doglover: August11: I go to bed at 8pm and wake up at 3:58am most mornings, though my alarm is set for 4am.


What horrible things did you do to get that schedule?

Ha! No really it is a chosen schedule--I have always been a morning person.

I guess you must have been really terrible in a previous life. Not like... Genghis Khan terrible, but pretty bad. Bad enough that someone cursed you in this life.


Either that or just an absolute lazy fark. Because I'm getting a lot done in this life.

Most people, though, who are against getting up before sunrise have never tried it. It is a different world and mostly distraction free, he said while typing on Fark...

lindseyp: I don't know why, but I am a morning person.  Always have been.

Currently my alarm is set for 6:30 but I'm always awake before it.  5am is easily doable but I end up going to bed at 10pm which is quite boring.

I think part of the reason is I never have light-blocking curtans, so when the sun wakes up it's bright as anything.
