I'm naturally a night person - I feel happier, more alive and more creative when it's dark (the difference is noticeable even on overcast days compared to bright days). However, due to life, I have to be a day person, which is probably why I feel exhausted and only half-alive most of the time.
If I had my way I'd go to bed at 9:30 and wake up at 8. But alas, my body doesn't understand the concept of sleep which means it does whatever it wants. Mostly I try to go to bed around 10. On a good night I fall asleep around 12 but wake up around 3 or 4 am. Then I'm up until about 6. My best sleep is between 7am and 10am. But that doesn't work for my job...
I'm very much a day person ...but my day always starts 5 am or earlier . My dream world is so intense that I often wake up exhausted so I get up to " change the channel" ! My real world is always interesting as well . I am retired and Love the peace of the new morning : SUNRISE , Strong Coffee ,Looking out to the sea( I live on a beach and actually see the Sun rise above the coastal mountains) and plan my day ....I can enjoy all this before my wife gets up and starts BITCHING!
