Yesterday, I set my alarm for 5:13 AM.

No. I wasn’t catching a flight to some exotic location. And no, I wasn’t waking up that early just for funsies.

The truth is that I had a massive, almost brain exploding amount of work to get done in a very tight time frame.

Now before you even think about pouring some haterade assuming I’m one of those lucky people who naturally wakes up at the crack of dawn, please don’t.

Because on Saturday, just two days prior, I finally rolled out of bed around 11:45 am.

Josh and I had an indulgent night out with friends and after a pretty intense work week, I had zero guilt about sleeping in.

So what’s this have to do with you? Well today on MarieTV we’re tackling a hot-button topic that’s been argued about for years.

It’s a question I’ve personally wrestled with in my own quest to be as productive, happy and healthy as humanly possible during my precious time on Planet Earth.

We’re Talking Early Risers vs. Late Owls in a Classic Productivity Battle

Pay attention here because even if you’re perfectly happy with your own sleep patterns, the people around you may not be.

Now, I’d love to hear from you.

Specifically for my late owls: Have you ever tried to become a morning person? If so, tell us what happened. Or, if you embrace your late-nite nature, got any great tricks to share that help you live and work harmonious with the rest of the world?

Early birds: I’d love to hear your experience with night owls. Found any great ways to respect and honor the difference?

During my research for this episode I discovered some conflicting information and loads of very strong opinions on the matter.

So my appreciation in advance for being cool and kind as you share your view in the comments below.

Our community is simply incredible and that’s all because of you. Thank you for reading, watching and sharing with us!
