Some of Us Just Work Better During Late Hours

By Tom Herrin

Do you ever wonder why it is that some of us are able to get up and get started early every day while others can't seem to get moving at all until well after that?  Many times, it seems that some feel that all we need to do is go to bed early and get up equally early.  While it may sound simple, it isn't all that easy.  For those of us who work better on a later schedule, making such a big change is much more than trying to go to bed early.  It is a part of our internal clock that may require more than a little effort to change.

Could You Go Endlessly at Night?

For those of us who get wired as the day goes on, we may find ourselves charged up in the afternoons.  In that case, some of us could easily go well into the night.  Having those juices flow at what may seem odd hours appears strange to some people.  For those of us who are geared for the late shift, we may be getting our second wind when many others are getting ready for bed.  I am one of these, and I could easily do most things later.  For me, I can't  exercise in the early morning as it leaves me feeling as if I have been completely drained.  Riding my bicycle at 10 or 12 at night works great for me.

Can You Barely Keep Your Eyes Open After Dinner?

Those of us who tend to function better early in the day have our own set of gears.  They help us to be pumped up early.  Such early birds are ready to jump out of bed in the morning and begin the day.  They operate full speed for the first part of the day.  Once they get much past noon, they often begin to wind down.  The difference in the two types is that their biological clocks run on a set of batteries that are uniquely their own.  It is not a matter of good vs. bad.  It is more like magnetic north vs. south.

Change Is Possible If Needed

For those who feel they would be better served to try to change their clocks, it can be done but carefully.  Efforts to make abrupt changes can result in more accidents and less energy.  If you must make a change, it is best to do it in small increments.  Move the alarm a few minutes at a time over a longer period of time.  Learning to read our internal clocks and respecting them may help us to work better with others as well as make better choices for ourselves.
