Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Are you a morning person? In my case I’m not a morning person, but I’m definitely an early riser. In my early 20s, I rarely went to sleep before eleven at night, and you could always count on me to sleep in late. Usually my day would start each day until late afternoon.

After awhile I couldn’t ignore the fact that I was sleeping most of the day away, and if I was wanted to be success in life I would have to wake-up (literately). There were rare occasions when I did wake up early, and noticed that I was much more productive on those days. Not to mention I felt a better sense of well-being. It was clear that I had to get accustom to waking up early if I wanted to have a chance in succeed in whatever I had planned for the day. So I set my alarm clock for 6AM. Guess what! I got up around mid-day.

It’s hard to become an early riser, especially if you’re using the wrong strategy. The most common wrong strategy is: You assume that if you’re go wake up early you might as well go to bed early. Sound very reasonable, but it will usually fail.

There seems to have two main schools of thought about sleep patterns in humans. One is that you go to bed and get up at the same times every day. This seems practical for living in modern society. But when it comes to the human body things are always unpredictable. One thing is sure the body needs adequate rest.

The second school of thought says you should listen to your body’s need and go to bed when you’re tired and get up when you naturally wake up. Our bodies should know how much rest we need, so we should always listen to our bodies. But there are times where listening to our bodies just don’t fit our life schedules.

After trial and error, I realized that both these school are far from effective, the result varied from person to person. I’m still trying to get some way which I can be an early riser and have more productive working days. If you’re late riser, try the school of thoughts, you never know it might just help you become an early riser (or not!).
