I think it is time the commercial world wakes up to the fact that not all of us like jumping out of bed at 6 or 7am. I always get a second wind about the time everyone is heading out the door and rarely go to sleep before 2am. I basically had to move to contracting work to get some peace in my life as I was exhausted all the time. Now I can work when at my best which is good for business productivity wise and health wise and I can work abound what is my natural sleep cycle. I still get 8-9 hours sleep and mange an 8-9 hour work day. However I get so sick of early risers who consider me lazy as I do not wake up until 10am! I get more done in a day than the average person just at a different time.

Fabulous article, thank you. We live in the Countryside and the alarm clock courtesy of our beautiful feathered friends ensure that a lay in is hard to achieve: a price worth paying though :-)

Occasionally, I love being up and about during the Night, the skies are beautiful, it's much easier to get paperwork/housework done, or just to sit down, listen to the radio and read a book.
