    I love it! Try having to get up at 0330 am every morning for work - sleeping until 6am is a treat! After doing that for years I naturally wake up between 615-630 am - any later and I feel guilty!

    Worked in the Texas Prison system - first shift so I had to be there at 5am. It was nice getting off at 2pm though!

    Overall, I'm NOT a morning person, but for work purposes ONLY, I've gotten used to it. Waking up at 6:15am isn't too bad, but I'd rather not wake up any earlier than that. But, the thing is, regarding my work hrs, I'd rather start early & end early.

    When I actually was a permanent teacher, my hrs were 8-3, which I guess is pretty close to perfect for me.

    The earlliest I have had to wake up is 4:45am. Thank God it was only on Mondays for 5 mos!

    I'm up, without an alarm, by 5:15 every morning (weekends, usually 6:30).

    For those of you that are morning people, do you have any tricks to help those of us that hate to get up early? I am trying to motivate myself to get up early and hit the gym before work, but I just end up resetting my alarm and going back to bed. Any suggestions?

    Kassrose:
    Get a dog, feed it first thing when you alarm goes off. It won't be too many days that if you aren't up and moving at the first alarm, you will have a dog paw on your face. My dogs wake right BEFORE the alarm, they don't get impatient until about 3 seconds after the alarm sounds.

    But, for real ... I wasn't a morning person until I added yoga to my morning routine. (I bought a DVD at Super Target). It's been a lifesaver for me. I crave that time, it is worth getting up to do yoga.

    Go to be earlier. If that is hard for you try taking a Tylenol PM for awhile. I think most people that do not want to get up early go to bed late. My husband is a night owl. I get up early even on weekends. I am usually asleep by 10 though. During the summer I start staying up later and later and sleeping later in the mornings.

    Are you sure you don't want to go to the gym after you're off from work? I used to think that 4 - 5 something PM was the worse time of the day to be at the gym & NEVER used to go at that time, but I got used to it when I finally had a personal trainer & it wasn't so bad.

    I don't see myself EVER going to the gym BEFORE work. :dizzy:

    i just love getting up early! I have to be up before the sun, there is something about being awake before everyone else (well, most everyone else). Also I absolutely love coffee, but only drink it in the morning - I am not one of those all day coffee people. As soon as I wake up and smell the fresh coffee I am up and in the kitchen!

    I'm up at 5. If it weren't for the alarm, I might sleep till 6, but rarely later than that--even without the "alarm clock" currently chanting "We want school LONGER"... whatever that means!

    I shower, change, get ready, and have half an hour or so of computer time before Kira is up and my day begins.

    I get up at 5:30 some weeks, and 6:30 other weeks... depending which school I'm heading to.

    I'm up at about 5:20 on weekdays. I've never gotten used to it, as I'm a night owl. I make up for it on the weekends and love to sleep in. When summer comes around, my natural body clock takes over and it is late nights and not so early mornings. :)

    :lol:I thought of another idea to help you late sleepers. Drink lots of water before bed. Ha! I think I wake up early because I have to go to the bathroom.:lol::lol::lol:

    The alarm goes off at 4:51; I'm up one "snooze" later, at 5:00, and I'm in my classroom by 6:30 getting ready for my 7:00 class. I teach five periods straight, and then at lunch I'm done, which is nice (though I usually stay until about 2:30).

    I don't think I really wake up until around 8:30. My body is just appearing in places before then, but my mind is sound asleep. I don't even know how I get to school some mornings.

    My alarm goes off at 5:00 am. I usually get up around 5:30 or so...only during the week. On the weekends, I get up when my daughter decides she's ready to get up...usually about 7:30 or so. I am sooooo not a morning person, but I'm also not a night owl. I am in bed at 8:00 every night...right after I put my daughter to bed. Then I still have a hard time getting up in the mornings. My husband makes fun of me for sleeping so much.

    LOL I don't really drink too much before I go to bed but I end up having to get up and go to the bathroom right around 6:15 so that's what time I get up. Sometimes I try to go back to sleep for 15 more minutes but my dog won't let me. He wants to go outside then eat!

    Indian alarm clock!

    I'm an early bird, should have used it for my name instead of Hoot Owl, but at the time I couldn't sleep and was staying up way past my bed time.

    It's just a curse, the older you get the less sleep you need. So "they" say.

    I try to be in bed by 9:30 PM every night. My alarm goes off at 6, and I am usually awake fully by 6:15. Out the door by 7:20 the latest.

    My mornings would be so much easier if I'd pick my outfit and pack my lunch the night before, ha!

    I'm a very early morning person. I like to walk the dog, read the paper, eat breakfast and work out at the gym. I leave for work at 6:00 am and arrive at 6:01 am. Not much of a commute. Don't try to call me after 8:00pm, though. I'll be sound asleep!

    If I could, I would stay up until 3 am, and sleep until noon. Schools just don't operate that way.

    I am def. a night owl. And this has worked well for me lately. I've been staying up until 2-3am working, and then sleep until 10am. My perfect schedule. I had a sub job today, however. Unfortunately, I was still up last night until 1, so I'm about to fall asleep on my keyboard right now.

    I'm such a night owl it's ridiculous. I feel like I'm going to sleep early if I'm in bed by 11:00pm. I have a hard time going to sleep in earlier because I hate laying in bed staring at the ceiling. I think I need to work out because I like laying in bed and going directly to sleep.

    I'm up at 6, ugh! I don't love it, but I've gotten used to it. I usually wake up at about 6:30 on the weekends and have to roll over and go back to sleep. Sleeping in is 8 AM nowadays!

    Up at 5 a.m. and out the door by 6:15. I have a 20 minute commute and a carpool buddy so planning a few extra minutes in there allows us to get to school on time with a bit of time to plan and ready the days activity.

    I hate getting up that early but it's what has to happen.
