Mental Health Tip: Sleep Late

I’m not a morning person and it seems everyone would have you believe that if you do not wake up at 5am and start writing then you are not a good writer.

I just want to say I’m quite productive after noon. I used to be the person who started writing at 9pm but as I’ve gotten older I’ve needed more sleep.  (I basically didn’t sleep until I was 20 and that was with the help of powerful medication).

But don’t let anyone make you feel bad for not wanting to be bothered first thing in the morning and not getting out of bed until 11am.  Morning people are not better than anyone else.  I would even argue I’m more productive than many morning people and it’s productivity that matters most.

So if you wake up at noon don’t think the day is shot.  The day could just begin.

You decide.
