Do you spring out of bed in the mornings with a big smile?
I'm a morning person. I've been an early riser for the last 10 years or so, but I was more of a night owl when I was a teenager. I used to stay up really late. Now, I prefer to go to bed early to get 7-8 hours sleep and start the day when the birds are chirping. I have more energy and feel happy. I always look out the window to see the morning light and what kind of a day it's going to be. Of course, I enjoy a lie in on the weekend if I've had a late night.
This could be an IELTS Part 1 answer to this question: Are you a morning person?
3-4 sentences showing the examiner how you can communicate your thoughts and feelings in English.
I've just listened to a BBC Podcast on:
Why are There Morning People and Night People?
Here is the summary from the website:
Some of us want to be up with the larks, while others are more like night owls. But is our preference down to our genes, or more to do with habits and surroundings? We set out to find the answers, inspired by a question from Kira, a night owl CrowdScience listener in Philadelphia, USA.
Our daily, or circadian, body clocks are a hot topic of discussion at the moment - this year’s Nobel Prize for Medicine went to three scientists who discovered the gene that makes these clocks tick. To answer our listener’s question, we need to know why different clocks tick at different rates, so we visit a specialist sleep centre to see how having a slow-ticking clock makes it hard for you to leap out of bed in the morning.
And the morning sun helps all of us regulate our daily rhythm, so what happens when it doesn’t rise at all? We travel to Tromsø, in the far north of Norway, to see how morning and evening types fare during the long polar nights - and meet the reindeer who seem to be able to switch off their daily clocks altogether. Meanwhile down near the equator, we hear about the hunter-gatherer community in Tanzania where there’s nearly always someone awake.
