Are you an Owl or a Lark?

Mornings mean different things to different people. For many it’s the best part of the day when the air is fresh and the birds sing brightly. They jump out of bed at first light, make breakfast, read the morning paper and get ready for work.

Others can stay fully awake well beyond midnight, but snooze through three alarms in the morning and are forced to skip breakfast because they just can’t get out of the starting blocks quickly enough to arrive at work on time.”

The BBC Sleep Profiler says I’m an “Owl”:

“You are built to be at your best later in the day. Surprisingly, it also means your body clock is more flexible than people with standard or lark-like body clocks.
Ideally, people should wake at the same time everyday, but being an owl, you can probably cope quite well when your sleep pattern is disrupted.”

Yep. I can change my sleeping patterns from one day to the next, although it was so unfun when I had a full-time job and had to go to bed before midnight and at the same time every single night.
