I understand. My wife isn’t a morning person either. She’s a night person. She can sleep way longer than I do as well.

I just don’t sleep more than 6-7 hours- ever. As a kid, teen, or adult, I’ve always been an early riser.

Man what a boring life. So do you just skip the second half of Tennessee games? What about when the game starts at 8?


If a game is on past 9 or so, I'm either watching it while I'm dozing or not at all. Unless it's an LSU football game. I'll stay up for an LSU football game. Like I said, value.

And my life isn't boring to me. If it were, I'd do something else. I don't see how staying up past 9 is a prerequisite for a fun life. What are you doing at midnight that I can't do at 3 PM?

I've been known to get up around 3:30 to light the fire pit in the winter, and drinking my coffee next to it while the sun comes up.

I feel like I've wasted the day if I sleep past 7.


100% TRUE STORY.

i used to spend 2 weeks at my grandparents' house every summer. i would wake up at 6am and there would already be 2-3 biscuits out in the yard for the squirrels to eat. my grandmother would be washing & folding clothes in the laundry room which wasn't attached to the house.

my granddad would walk into the house, sweaty from having worked his butt off in the yard and say 'well you ready for LATE breakfast?'

some things stick with you your whole life. this was one of those defining moments. grandad didn't play

Power of habit. It'll be a routine change initially. Just stick with it. Then it'll become your new norm. I wake at 5 to workout at 6. I go to bed between 10 and 10:30.

I have 2 young kids, btw. I found that for any time other than the mornings, life always got in the way. I ended up being irregular because of that fact. Life doesn't get in the way at 5-6 am.

I get out of bed at 4:30 and at work for 6:00 but I’m not really awake until somewhere around 7-7:30ish. Wish I could work out before work but that just isn’t possible.

You literally talk out of your arse on everything health related


If you are in bed for 4 to 5 hours and you have good sleep hygeine and circadian rhythm then you MAY have 90% efficiency so you are getting 3.5 to 4 hours a night.

Getting less than 5.5 to 6 hours of sleep has shown to increase dementia, obesity, depression, among other ailments.

If you don't believe me read Dr Mathew Walkers book, listen to him on Rogan, read his colleagues, etc.


Or just disagree because I said it and you want to be an emotional pussy.

You can go slowly. Wake up 15 minutes earlier than usual next week and just use that time to meditate or even read a book in bed. Then you'll slowly adapt.

I am getting up at 5:45 to hit the gym and if I'm going into the office it's too late. Prob need to move it back to 5:15

5:15 wake up and eat oatmeal
5:30 Dog for walk
5:55 Leave for gym
6:05 At gym
7:15 Leave gym
7:30 Home/Shower/Eat
8:30 Leave for work

I was about 15 minutes later than I'd like to be today, but it's still empty in the office so no harm no foul

Night shift has got to be one of the most grueling and detrimental things a person can do. It fricks with your sleep patterns as well as the quality of sleep. Wife did it for 15 years Sunday- Thursday. She said she had no idea how bad it was for her till she went into private practice on days. I couldn’t do it every week like she did.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I envy early risers. I've never been one, unfortunately.

I don't care if I go to sleep at 9pm or 1am, I struggle to wake up and get moving before 7am. With COVID and WFH I typically don't roll out of bed until at least 8am.

Would love to be the kind of person that got up, had a quiet cup of coffee, and worked out each morning. But it's just not in my DNA.

I read it and that is the absolute bare minimum that you MAY be ok if you are a very efficient sleeper.

And I'm not just making this shite up, it's published medical information from one of the leading sleep experts in the world.

But your brain is so broken because I said it, it can't be right.

In bed by 9pm, up around 5am, in the office by 6am.
I hate getting home after the sun goes down, been this way since I got out of high school. I would rather work my arse off from 6-noon than sit in an office until it gets dark then go home with just a couple hours to spend with family/hobbies

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
My grandparents were early risers as well. Some of my best bonding time with my grandmother was when I'd go there in the summer and wake up early while she cooked breakfast for him before he went to work. Once he left, grandma and I would sit at the kitchen table talking while we waited for my brother to wake up. I can still remember the little black & white TV on the counter she'd have on and tuned to Good Morning America with Joan Lunden.

I remember spending the night a friend's house when I was 7 or 8. His parents were out of town and his grandparents were watching him and his sister. I assumed they were like my grandparents and up early, but nope. I sat in his living room for what seemed like 6 hours waiting for everyone else to wake up. I was too scared to turn the TV because his grandpa was kind of mean. I think it was only an hour or so I was out there.

These people are awful. I'm not a morning person so I'd hear it all the time.

Some dumbass at my old job thought it was a badge of honor to wake earlier than everyone else. He gets up at 2:30am lol.

Or those who brag about getting up early but then take mid-day naps.

Its easy at first, gets stale after a couple of weeks, becomes second nature after a year or so.

I get up at 4a.

re: How to become an early-riser "morning person"
I am getting better but going to bed earlier helps. Im up at 5-5:30 most days. I’m in bed for 8:30 or 9 now. Some nights I’ll play around on the phone for a hour or so and that hurts.

It’s great for being at work on time. Bad for doing stuff you actually want to do (PS5, watching TV, etc.).

Maybe that’s just called adulting. Whatever it is, it sucks.

Go to bed 8 to 9 hours before you need to wake up and have good sleep hygiene.

Its an incredibly simple concept that is hard for people to execute.



So much to it than this...... Our bodies have natural circadian lows generally between 3-5 pm and 3-5 am. Maximizing these two windows will benefit many people. Food, alcohol, and so much more can be in the “sleep hygiene” category but going to bed 8-9 hours before you need to wake up isn’t going to work for a lot of people.
