Are you a morning or a night person?
As my father made his way into the bathroom each morning when I was a child, he was fond of saying “Give me a man that can sing in the morning!” I am not sure when this habit started as my father was not a singer. I think it was his way of saying that he didn’t like grumbling children who were only half awake.
In all my working years I was out of bed and wide awake before 6am each day. I loved an early journey to work. The streets were quiet and the people around at that hour were always ready to greet you with a smile. Later when the day warmed up the folk I passed either kept their heads down or grunted a greeting. More often than not it was a complaint about the weather being too hot, too cold or too wet!
I grew up in a household where bed before midnight was the norm. I suppose I did go through a spell when I stretched the boundry to pass the midnight hour. Now in the autumn of my life bed calls earlier. Although I am a very bad sleeper I like to climb into a warm bed and stretch out my weary limbs and relax.
Do you wake and sleep easily? Have you a ritual to start and end the day? Tell us about it.
