I've been a night owl for decades. On my last job of 10 years I gradually worked my way to where I'd stay up as early as 4 am, sleep 4 hours and be at work by 9 am. I could do that maybe 4 or 5 times during the week with no apparent ill effects no apparent ill effects no apparent ill effects no app-- .
Seriously, I usually do computer stuff from about 10 pm until 1 or so, then practice bass guitar through headphones while my girlfriend sleeps a few feet away. Everybody's happy.
Hoot, where's the rest of the owls? 3:37 am now....:o)
edit: I find it easier to be creative and get artwork done later. I use to do a lot of woodburning late into the night up until dawn, then go to bed. It's so peaceful and quiet, less distractions. Loved the article, thanks for sharing the link.
As of lately I have been burning the candle at both ends. Late to bed and early to rise. I have always been a night owl and worked much better after the kids were in dreamland. It's quieter here and I can actually think. REALLY THINK. lol But as late as I am staying up, I have still managed to get up pretty early. When I set out to do something, I go all out until I can't. Thank goodness I have not arrived at that state yet. But I know I will have to rest some in the near future just so my eyes can stay focused.
