Why Am I Wakening So Early In The Morning? This Has To Stop

Could someone please explain to me why it is that my body is wide awake at stupid o’clock in the morning?

That is almost every day this week I have been wide awake at about 6am.  I don’t start work until 9am, what earthly reason is there for me being awake 3 hours before I am due to start work?

I am sure there will be some out there who are bright eyed and bushy tailed at this time of the morning.  Trust me, I am not one of them.  I require warmth and tea and a slow relaxed journey into the day.  None of this jumping out of bed and raring to go, that is never going to happen.

I am happy with wakening a little earlier than normal, maybe get in a blog post or have time for toast with my tea.  I am not happy with wakening up early enough to have done half a days work before I even get to work.

It has taken me many many years to perfect the art of falling out of bed, in and out of the shower and ready for work in less than 30 minutes.  I have trained hard to enable me to stay in bed for the longest possible time before having to face the day.  Now it seems all this training has gone to waste as my brain has decided it wants to be a morning person whilst my body is still clinging to the duvet in protest.

What is the point of this being up early lark when in a few short weeks it is going to be pitch black at that time of the morning?  What good is it going to do anyone to have me up and about in the dark cuddling my heaters and drinking tea?

If this is the way the rest of this year is going I shall need fleecy pyjamas, furry slippers, a large fluffy robe, hot water bottle and an endless supply of teabags.

Oh, and just before anyone starts being all sensible and telling me I should do my housework or start an exercise routine, don’t even go there.  Unless there is some sort of emergency which requires me to be immediately alert, I am not a morning person and have got no intention of going anywhere other than the sofa, my desk and the kettle at that time of the morning.

Now that I have successfully killed two and a half hours, it is time for me to get ready to go to work.  Have a good Friday everyone.
