Everyone has different body clocks and mine used to be a late, owl like one, though in the years I have had to go to school and work, early mornings have haunted me though at times getting up really early has been a boon of quietness and reflection. Emily Dickensen we are told work from 3 am to noon, so she also enjoyed the quiet. Charles Dickens on the other hand finished his work in the afternoon and then had his family time.
However life is a fluid and body clocks change, I now find I am enjoying late nights again finding moments to reflect when my mother’s illness does not take up my time. As we age sleep becomes less important for a while and management of energy levels becomes more important. I have always believed that humans are minds and bodies and one should take care of both with equal dedication and as such I allow my body to rest when it wants to, thankfully I do not have to force myself to do anything.
It is actually quite an intense way to live as Emily Dickensen observed simply to breathe is a wonderful experience, with all the passion of the universe held in every breath.
