Bold in the Morning

Made a recent personal discovery: I have more courage in the morning. I don't mean the arduous moments of struggling to wake up, but instead after I get rolling. Then the world feels new, or newish, and I'm out in it.

Fatigue, on the other hand, does not make me bold. And that's probably just as well.

Have you observed any such patterns in yourself? This could be useful info for scheduling.

I used to be a night person but that has changed. I know that anything I put off until the evening will not get done. Because of this, I need to take days off work or use the weekends to get writing or shopping or cleaning done. The only thing that affects this is if I drink a cup of coffee around 4 or 5 in the afternoon. I get about three to five good, buzzy hours from it, but then I have a hard time going to sleep before midnight.

Like Mamie, I used to be a really lively night person. I still stay up late (but after a nap in my chair while trying to watch TV). I have courage about 11am, after taking time to wake up, eat and clean up. I can't seem to get out of the house early anymore, unless I'm getting paid for it...LOL

I think I make a distinction between energy and courage. I think I'm bolder mid-morning about decisions, etc. But I get more of the long steady work done from early afternoon until far into the night, if need be.

Have you noticed any such difference, Mamie and Kenju? And anyone else?

Hey, Peggy, I can relate to that. I think it takes energy to be spontaneous and I think I have more courage if I allow myself to be spontaneous. So...I'm not as courageous later in the day when I don't have an abundance of energy. (I'm not sure what I just said. Maybe I'm fatigued even though it's not noon, yet.)

Now that's interesting, Greta. I always felt as if planning ahead was more demanding and operating on whim less so. Wonder if that's something that's consistent for a particular individual.
