Waking up is hard for me. Jex has even instated a rule that I cannot open my mouth to say anything other than 'yes' or 'no' for the first 15-20 minutes I'm awake. Some of my friends are the same way, we just are not morning people. Toss me into the middle of the night with a fork and a piece of cake in front of a good book any time. Toss me into the morning before 8 o'clock with a muffin and a list of things to do and I will eslpode. (yes I said 'esplode')
So I wondered if there was a cure for this personality trait? Or if it was just that a personality trait. See my father will always be a sarcastic punk, but he's learned to channel his sarcastic punkishness to suit situations and such. Being the total enemy of the Morning person is a little bit of a different challenge.
The Cure: changing one's hard wiring, possible or no?
My mom told me to eat certain things as soon as I woke up. Like fruit and yogurt.
Most people would just say: "Get to bed before 4 am, idjit."
So I went and asked Google if there were ways to fix that. I was actually surprised at the amount of self excellence improving blogs and bits on news sites.
Things like getting to bed early and changing routines were most common. One blog talked about rewarding yourself; I liked that idea.
If you're like me and need a little help with getting to bed and out of bed in a time zone that is more conducive to the life you lead I have a couple links.
Curiosity sated, I'm going back to bed.
and Google has no shortage of Ideas if you'd like more.
