To be a morning person

I was chatting with some friends over dinner the other night about being more productive in the mornings. "Oh the things I would get done if I was a morning person!" Sometimes I'm whinging (generally around the time I have uni assignments due) that there aren't enough hours in the day and it got me thinking.

When I was a boarding school kid in high school, any time I went home on the holidays or for a boarders weekend I cherished every minute I could spend in my own home and with my family. I was up at the crack of dawn because I had this urge to make sure i wasn't "wasting" any time at home or any parts of the day. This was mostly due to the fact that I was one of those big homesick kids but it kind of made sense all the same.

These days I am lucky enough, and have the luxury to sleep in until 830 - 9am mostly every day of the week because my uni class schedule is quite relaxed. I have to admit, I have completely enjoyed the sleep ins but I think it might be time for a change, or at least an experiment.

I want to test myself everyday this week (not including today, I'm sadly still in bed writing this!! ha!) by rising bright and early at 6am. I want to see what I can get done before the usual time I get up and also see if I am more productive with uni work having it all done before bed rather than crawling into be around midnight!

My Dad (the Farmer) would be so proud! Who knows, I might like it (after the first few cold mornings right???)

Are you an early riser? What time do you get up in the morning? Do you feel you get more done by getting up earlier?
