Thanks, David Meir! Oh I’m sure you know we have to do our due dilligence for all choices we make in life. The thing with this 4 or 5am crowd is that it’s a trend, and trendy. And does it work for some? HELL YES!

I’m a morning person. I get my most creative work done early. I wake between 5 and 6:30 naturally, and usually am in bed with the lights out between 9:30 and 10. The extra 1.5 hours of sleep (an actual sleep cycle) depends on how hard I’ve been working, my stress, what I ate, etc. in days previous.

I also have severe sleep apnea so sleep is a FUCKING priority for me vs. getting up tired because I know the sickness of sleep deprivation.

It’s simply to easy to write a fluff piece to get good stats. I’m so tired of that. Write QUALITY, thoughtful, engaging content that actually helps people.
