Are You a Morning Person?

This post might contain affiliate links

Other than a few years in my early teens, I have always been a morning person. Up early, bed early. It’s definitely a trait that I got from my dad, seeing as we’re both the ones that are always up the earliest in the family.

I never used to appreciate being up early in the mornings and would try my best to sleep in as long as possible, but never could and would be frustrated (and bored). Fast forward a few years and I’ve learned to appreciate being up early.

I, weirdly, love running errands but tend to get overwhelmed when I’m out and there’s a lot of people around. Introvert problems, amirite?

In all seriousness, it can be really overwhelming when you’re not comfortable being around a lot of strangers in a public place. The walls feel like they’re caving in, it’s hard to find an area for some peace and quiet, and not to mention how frustrating it can be to get out of these types of situations.

*queue the anxiety attack*

Since I do get overwhelmed very easily, learning to love my early wake-up time has been a blessing. I’m able to enjoy my time running errands, grabbing a coffee, or getting work done without feeling overwhelmed.

Mornings are also the best because I can get all of my shit down before a majority of people wake up. Talk about the best feeling of accomplishment!

Mornings are special. They’re a new start. They’re a new opportunity. They’re my favorite part of the day, especially when it’s going to be a busy one!

So tell me, are you a morning person?

    I started to be a morning person this year! At least waking up way earlier than before. Today I was up at 4, scrolled through my phone until 5 and have been up working since! Love getting everything done early.

    I am so not a morning person but a few things help make mornings easier. Tea/Coffee is one of them. 🙂 And I’ve come to accept that taking advantage of mornings means being able to relax the remainder of the day!

    100% relate! I love how accomplished I can feel when I get up and get things done right away. And I am suchhhhh an old lady when it comes to my bed time.

    I really wish I could be a morning person. When I was a kid, I loved getting up early. Now that I have all these health issues, it’s really impossible for me to be up early – even when well-rested, unfortunately. But if I COULD – I would totally be the person out and about bright and early to run errands. I can see the appeal. Love this cute, casual look!

    Yes I’m totally a morning person! I’m usually up by 5:30 AM and ready to start my day. If I sleep in until 7:30 when my husband wakes up we’re both surprised!! It’s great for getting stuff done, but I have a hard time staying up late to party, lol.

    I am and I am not haha. I hate getting up early but once I’m up, I am up and ready to go. There is no slacking or slow and steady. However, my husband is SUPER hyper when he wakes up and I am just not ready for that haha.

    Definitely a morning-ish person. I’m like a 7:30am person. I definitely don’t understand people who wake up at 5am to go workout and then head to work. I could NEVER!

      Some mornings I set my alarm for 5 AM to be productive and then once it goes off I always say “Why the FUCK am I up right now?!” and go back to bed 😉

    I wish I could be! I’m up early for work Mon-Fri so during the weekends I definitely sleep in! But when I do get up early, I feel more accomplished. Ahh, the struggle! Lol!

    Girl I am not a morning person! My husband jokes I blog full-time because I could never make it to work on time when I worked at an office. I am so productive at night and am a major night owl!

    I’m up every day between 4-4:30am, so I guess I would consider myself a morning person!

    I am so not a morning person, but need to learn to become one. I thrive at night and so the thought of being the first person in the stores in the morning seems so crazy to me. Any tips on how to psych yourself into a morning person? 🙂
