What’s your favorite time of day and what do you usually do during it? I think all of us have a favorite time of day. A time when we either feel best or we love what we are doing or who we are with. I'm going to guess that we have a wide spread on favorite times of the day for all of us.

My favorite is the evening, especially in the fall, winter and springtime. I love after supper to be with my husband. Hopefully the dishes will be done and I can feel relaxed and just 'be' together. It doesn't much matter what we do....we are two who can be very comfortable with total silence in the air. And at other times we are both talking up a storm and laughing. In the fall - spring the nights come earlier and we have a fire in the woodstove. I love the feeling of being bundled up and snuggley. On work nights he often heads to bed earlier than I do and then I have some 'me' time either at the computer or on a sewing project.

So what time of day is your favorite? And what do you usually do during this time?

I have become a morning person. I like having time to myself in the morning to watch the news and have a cup of decaf coffee. I feel like it is my time to relax before I get started for the day.

Hi Richard,

Did you become a morning person by choice or did you have to get up early and then it sort of grew from there? Once my kids started a million years ago...I had to do mornings, but I can return to being a night owl very easily. ;-)

I'm definitely a morning person.  I LOVE mornings.  I love to watch the sun come up, the birds at the feeder, and the day awakening and I am usually out the door within the first light to walk my dog.  This, in turn, helps with my pain and gives me energy.  Then I have breakfast and the mornings are when I get things done.  I'm usually in bed by 10 PM.

I like the early evening. My work for the day is mostly done and dinner is partially ready, as I fix a lot of stuff early in the day. At 5:00 I like to sit down with a glass of wine and watch the news while playing with or petting my furry friend. Later I get the rest of dinner ready and then my husband and I eat at 7:00 watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. I use to hate these shows but now since I've gotten better at "winning" I like them both. wink

Good topic, Chutz.

I tend to like somewhere between 11:am and 2:30 because that's when I feel physically good most of the time.

At night time, in the couple hours before bed time is another favorite. I like to get my jammies on and sit up in bed. It is a time of day that is peaceful and quiet. I know the phone won't ring. My family tend to leave me alone at this time of night and I can relax. Typically this is when my b/f and I will spend an hour or so on the phone talking. It's also the time my hobby projects come out. So I might spin some wool into yarn, or plunk on my ukulele (newbie!), or make something from my yarn. This is also when I do a little journaling, etc. It is hard to sometimes quit what I'm doing and remember to go to bed - but I try to be careful so I can get some restful sleep at a decent hour.

I also like that first half hour after I wake up now - because I know I'll be playing my hypnosis relaxation recording and I look forward to how it charges my batteries in a mellow sort of way.

I would like to be a morning person like you are Arrunk. I'm getting closer to it. Maybe one day!

I LOVE when I finally get home from work and have walked the dog and can finally just collapse on the couch, so around 6:30 pm.
But on weekends, I love the mornings.  I love taking my time with a cup of tea and a good article to read before taking the dog for a walk. cool

I use to really be a morning person but I have to say I like the hour or so before bed.  I get in the total relaxation mode.  Get the PJ's on, sometimes snuggle up with the doggies and usually I journal a bit.  I still like morning too- when the world is waking up.

I read this when I got up this morning and couldn't at the time think of any time of the day that was my favorite. Now that I have had time to think about it I realize that my favorite time of the day is when I can say to myself You have accomplished something today. Since the chemo last Thursday all I have gotten accomplished has been sleeping and eating and so I have not been a happy camper. Yesterday I managed to finally trust myself enough to drive to the grocery store and do some shopping. And now today I was able to sweep the floor and do the dishes. I know these are not big accomplishments but they are enough after the last week to make me happy. Well that is my deep insight for the day.

I like from noon to around 5:00 and the hour or so before bed. Mornings are hard as I take a while to get motivated. We are in bed by 11:00 he falls asleep and I watch TV until about 2:00am. I wish I could fall asleep sooner.
