Are you an early riser (morning person)?

Do you get up sharp at the start of the day and get things done or do you stay in bed for as long as possible? (Not specifically dressed en femme)

      I am usually out of bed by 5:00 am, staying in bed late means 6:00. I get up each morning sit and relax for a bit checking e-mail and such. Then it is into the shower, pick my outfit for the day, get dressed, put makeup on and begin my duties as a housewife. I have a wonderful life.

      Even though I am retired, I am always wake around 4am and usually go to bed after the 10pm news. I have always had jobs that started early and the last 15 years my starting time was 6am. Occasionally when I wake I force myself to stay in bed and might not get up until 6am. I do enjoy the peace and solitude of my early “quiet” time and mostly use it to email my friends on CDH…..

      Oh Penny

      An early riser… goodness me, no! I’m a night owl and always have been. The best parties are in the evening and even garden parties don’t usually start before 2 o’clock which gives me enough time to get ready!

      My wife is a frightening early riser and sometimes our schedules conflict. But… rising at 11 o’clock is not so bad… on occasion!

      Love Polly

      I’m up at 6AM every day. I’d love to say that I can use that time to be alone and dress, but my wife is up at 4 every day and she doesn’t approve. I’m usually at the gym by 7, at work by 8:30 (just for an hour or so), then it’s home and Emily time.

      Hi Penny,

      I love to get up at oh:dark:30, before everyone else. The house is quiet, the neighbors are not paying attention to how I am dressed (nor not!) as I putter in the garden or enjoy my coffee on the deck.

      I like to go at my chores like I am killing snakes until noon, then taper off and enjoy the afternoon being lazy.

      I am by habit an early riser. It may have something to do with the fact that I was born at around 2AM or so my mother always claimed to explain way I was always up early to bother her.
      I usually wake up at 5AM even when the wife keeps me up until 11 or 12 pm watching TV in the bedroom, my eyes pop open at 5. Though last night I was down and out at8 and slept until 2 when the old blaster insisted it was time to get up  but I when back to sleep until 6 it was wonderful. I only got up then because we have to go to a funeral this afternoon. And I do then to take a long time getting ready. My brother in law died suddenly last week of a massive heart attack, of my wife’s brothers and sisters he was the one I liked best of them.
      Though when I was in the Army I regularly worked the graveyard shift and really enjoyed it. Though that may have had something more to do with getting out of having to play stupid Army games than really liking the hours.

      Now in enforced retirement getting up early gives me time to myself which is really nice.

      I get up when I have to and that is not early in any book. 7-8 on work days and maybe as late as 9 or 10 on weekends.

      To “compensate” my bed time is late, it’s rare I hit the bed before midnight and it has happened I been up working until 3-4 am when I suddenly realise the time and remember that I have to get up soon to work.

      One strange thing is that when I decide to go to bed (not because I’m tired but because I know I need some sleep) I many times feel I could been working on this project or whatever much longer, then I go to bed and 5min later I’m a sleep.

      I went with ‘other’. I used to be an early riser exclusively but two years ago i picked up a part-time job and now i have slept in all the way to 07:30 at times.  Twelve, fourteen, sixteen hour work days can be a drag and a girl does need her beauty sleep.

      I can be perfectly described as a night owl. Especially during pandemics, I got used to start sleeping very late in the night or even sleeping after sunrise. The last night, for example, when I slept it was about 8am and I I woke up after 2pm.

      If left to myself I probably would have gone back to my school years, getting up at 8 or 9.   For almost 30 years I worked 2 jobs First job at 4 am and the second at 8 am, so at that time I got up at 3 am. 2 years ago I was ‘ layed off’ from the early job.  This gave me time in the mornings to rediscover my feminine side.  I moved my wakeup alarm to 5 am, but often got up 15 to 45 minutes early, which gives me a good opportunity to take a walk outside in fem, this has given me the courage to start going out in fem during daylight hours.

      I’ve always gotten up early. I guess this started when my daughters were young. I had my own business, so I worked all of the time. This was so I could afford to be with them when they had something going on. Getting up early gave me the added time to take care of a lot of things before they even woke. That allowed me to spend time with them before their day started. They are long gone so its just a habit now. Even though I’m retired I still get up excited ready to jump at the things that I need to do.

      Fortunately, it also allows me a little time to dress a bit nearly every morning.

      Genevieve, it takes me 1 1/2 hrs to briskly walk the 6 miles. I started when the pandemic began in mid March when I would walk with my wife. It allowed me to get out of the house and also to lose some much needed weight. I would estimate in the 8 months I’ve walked 1,200 miles and lost 30lbs. My lady clothes fit sooo much better. I’m a little bit addicted to walking now. I’m feeling healthier, sleeping better and clearing my mind for the day.

      I’ve done shift work for so many years I’m whatever kind of riser I need to be.

      As I’ve been working straight days now for about 3 1/2 months, I occasionally wake up an hour before my alarm goes off, but if I roll over and go back to sleep does that still count as an early riser?

      Up early? Yes, 0600; and to bed around 2300.  But get things done, early?  I plead the 5th Amendment….and I do admit to some unplanned afternoon naps, sometimes.

      Hi Penny,

      Work has me getting up early. Too early. Long commutes and early starts. But I voted NO. My whole life I have been a night owl who gets up late in the day. I have always felt that sunrise is best before going to bed. I would love to be a happy early riser. Especially during the winter months when daylight is so short. I get a little seasonal depression during the cold dark winter months. Waking up late, it always seems like the productive hours of the day are wasted. I think I would get more done if I was an early riser.

      Hugs

      Autumn

      Hello

      Grace is usually up 6.30 a.m. every day, work or holiday. I’m like Kay, never need an alarm…I just wake up !!………………..but I can be comatose until the second or third cup of coffee is consumed.

      Late to bed early to rise. My internal clock goes off at 5am even if I went to bed at 1am i try for 8 hrs sleep but 6-7 is more normal. Always have had early shifts with bush jobs, and on our farm the early bird gets worm… wifey needs her sleep so it often gives me some time to lounge now that things have slowed down with the seasons

      I had to choose other.  I am a long time graveyard shift person, so my routine is pretty much opposite to everyone else.  I usually get off at 7am and am in bed by 9am, sleeping usually until about 4 in the afternoon.  Days off, I do try and get out of bed earlier in the afternoon and usually am up until the wee hours of the morning so that I don’t mess up my sleep routine.  Sometimes though, I can stay awake until about 1 or 2 in the afternoon then sleep several hours before getting up to dress and leave for work.

      Much to the chagrin of my wife, who loves sleeping in, I am an early morning person.

      I feel getting up early I can get stuff done around the house, run errands, which leaves me more time to dress up as Wendy.

      Hi ladies,

      In the Spring and summer I have been known to go for a relaxed walk or drive till it’s nearly dark and then spend time walking and time in the garden wearing the same summery outfit till it’s light.

      In the Autumn and Winter it’s every woman for herself.

      I’m fortunate enough to work for myself, and work from home, so can pick my own schedule somewhat, would like to be a night owl, but nonetheless find myself stumbling out of bed around 6 AM.Kelli often works that first shift, then the drab me takes over for outside work and away from the shop work.

      I start work at 5 am. So I go to bed at 8 pm and wake around 3 am. Every morning I check into CDH and drink my coffee before showering and breakfast. I am a morning person and I never set an alarm. Just seem to wake at the same time, even on the weekends.

      Most days, I prefer to go to bed early… really early, 5-6p.

      Pour a cold Martini, jump into bed in my ‘comfies’ and check out a few websites… mainly, CDH. Soon fall asleep.

      Wake anywheres between 2-6a. It’s nice and quiet in the wee hours. Back on CDH to do a little catch up. Then do some girly things… 🥰

      7a… off to work.

      Gen… 💋

      Nope, not me, although you already know that!

      And even at the weekend you get up at stupid o’clock to go golfing – mad!!  I much prefer a cozy long lie – although you did have a long lie this morning ……. does it count that you stayed in bed listening to podcasts while I was sleeping?

      Left to my own devices, I may be up all night & sleep til afternoon, or go to bed at a decent hour and be up with the sun or earlier.  So really, I enjoy both 😁 Hi PennyJ!!
