Personal Essay on When I Function the Best
When Do You Function the Best?
There are people who function best in the evening or even at night, but I just don’t understand them. Being an early riser, around 9 o’clock in the evening I can’t think about anything except for reading a book in my bed for about half an hour and falling asleep.
For me the most productive time is after about an hour or two after I wake up, and this productive state can last for different periods of time, depending on my work load and general mood. And I think that this order of events in my day is only natural, as after a good night sleep people’s brain is ready for new adventures and challenges.
Besides, I enjoy getting up early in the morning, eating my breakfast and leaving home when the streets are not so crowded yet, but are appealing due to their subtle magic and special atmosphere. I love my city so much and just don’t understand those people who consider it to be overcrowded and, thus, depressing. To my mind, they simply don’t understand its essence and spirit. If they would at least once try to get up early and watch this beauty, they would forget about all their complaints and maybe even start to look at things in a different, more positive way.
I almost always have very productive and saturated days, as I am an active and energetic person with many interests and ideas. And in the evening I know that the best activity for me is falling asleep as soon as my face touches the pillow.
Thus, I just don’t understand people who feel depressed and out of mood during the day, but in the evening start some important activities. Of course, there are so many people, and there cannot be two identical people and preferences, but I feel a little bit sorry for night people. They still have to work at the day time, which doesn’t make them content at all. I am happy that I am not one of them.
