I fit into one of these roles quite distinctly yet live with two polar opposites of myself. Although I wear the hat of "morning person", I require hours of awake time before motivating into life's activities. One thing I notice at our house, my beloved non-morning people are able to jump out of bed, shower, get ready, pack their lunch, and be ready in ten minutes or less.
The most frustrating of this fact, sometimes I've been up almost two hours and am still finishing up while they put their coats on.
So here is another question, am I the morning person or do the ones with the ability to jump out of bed, prepare, and leave in less than ten minutes really fit the mode of "morning person"? They have maximized their sleep time and still manage to be out the door and functioning in 1/25th of the time required by me. I might have non-morning-person envy, lol.
Generally, the morning person is the one who enjoys getting up early, usually before the sun peeks through the window. This is so me. I'll be the first to admit that if I oversleep or have to get ready quick, I'm a bear to spend a morning with. I require an hour of no human interaction before starting the day. I enjoy this quiet time, no distractions or things-to-do. It's just easing into another gift of a day.
Whether you are a morning person or a get-up-and-go kind of a person, remember to start each day thanking God for the new one He gifted you with.
Tomorrow isn't promised to us and life can change in an instant. Is there a morning routing that makes the start easier? Are there things that happen that trigger a bad start?
Where do you fall on the spectrum?
