Humans are creatures of habit, and if there's one habit that most of us lock down sometime shortly after leaving college and then don't vary all that much for the following 50 years, it's mornings. If you're a lark, then you spring from your bed with a song in your heart and have plenty of time for your routine. If you're an owl, not so much. Yep, some of us rise and shine, and others... don't.
The eager risers may have the advantage when it comes to having time to prepare themselves for the day, but just because you have more time on your hands, doesn't mean you use it foolishly. If you have an extra hour, why not pop to the gym, walk the dog, or fit in a quick zombie-killing session on the old X-box?
Some people use the morning to get ahead on work, while others take time to put on their perfect game face. Some lucky souls are so self-confident - or at least, so indifferent to what others think - that they just roll out of bed, brush their teeth, and consider themselves good to go. And still, others work nights and find any activity before noon to be basically the crack of dawn.
Tell us which of these sounds like you, and we'll figure out just what level of maintenance you require!
