Please Drop Everything And Tell Us Whether You're A Morning Person Or A Night Owl

Because obviously one is superior. But which one?

Posted on

There are those hyperproductive types who get an obnoxious amount of stuff done first thing in the morning.

Like they've already worked out, showered, made a (PROBABLY HEALTHY) breakfast, and updated all social media before lots of people are even awake.

Then there are the night owls who are up (and sometimes about) until all hours of the morning.

Like, their day starts in the late morning, they eat lunch in the late afternoon. And their evening — whether they're going out to party or staying in to Netflix — starts at like 9 p.m.

And each group is usually pretty sure that their way is the better way.

"Mornings are the best time for getting things done — chores, errands, workouts, answering email, whatever — so you can actually have a productive day. Nighttime is dark, lonely, and way too opportune for depressing existential ponderings. Also, how do you people stay up so freaking late?" —Sally Tamarkin, morning person

"Mornings are awful. Going from sleeping peacefully to doing actual things is way too harsh of a contrast. And why do you have to get tons of shit done before 10am anyway? Like, calm down, Target isn't even open yet. Plus, it's infinitely more satisfying to roll over and KEEP sleeping than it is to GO to sleep. That's just science." —Casey Gueren, night person

    Early bird. Morning = when the day starts.
    Night owl 4 life. I keep adult hours, not toddler hours.
    I have a whole 'nother story about my circadian rhythms which I'll share in the comments.
