Musings: Why I Love Mornings

I have a freakishly weird routine where I wake up pretty much everyday between 5.37am and 6.30am. The only time this is disrupted is if I’m hungover or holiday, or both. Mornings are my favourite time of day, I’m not sure why in all honesty, but I read something somewhere that successful wake up early. I don’t know if I’m one of these successful types, I don’t hit the gym in the AM, nor do I get to work early but I do enjoy the following about this time of day…

The Silence 

No traffic, no beeping horns, no drunkards shouting past your window or throwing up. Perhaps this doesn’t apply totally to me as a Londoner, but the ‘silence’ is great for deep thinking about my life in general or the day ahead…


The Anticipation

You might have work, you might be spending the day in bed, you might even be going away (you lucky thing). But the anticipation I feel in the morning is enough for me to wake up every day and feel thankful for who I am and where I’m going.

The Solitude

This links in with the silence and the anticipation, but I find solace in my solitude, especially in the morning. It’s the one time of day, I am alone and I don’t feel conscious about it. Having time for yourself is important. Enjoy your solitude.

What is your favourite time of day?

    My favourite time of the day is around 5pm. It’s my relaxing/chill out time! x


  2. My favourite time of day is right before I fall asleep. It’s peaceful to be with my thoughts and reflect on my day and focus on what I want to do the next day. If I am lucky enough to be awake before 9am I enjoy that time too, it’s almost as if time is slower then I get so much done but with how my daily life works it hardly happens unless I need to get up!

    I can barely wake up at 7am 🙁 school is so tiring. My favourite part of the day has to be the evening because it’s so chilled and relaxed!

    I wish I could wake up that early! I love the mornings too but if I do wake up that early I’m really tired and worn down by about 10am so it’s really no good for me to wake up that early! My favourite time of the day is when I’m putting my self in bed, happy to get some shut eye! Great post lovely, Sarah xoxo

    Love this! I have experienced this once or twice but I’m mostly not a morning person at all! Wish I was because I totally agree with your description of the best bits:)

  6. I am most definitely not a morning person. I love my silence in the middle of the night when it’s around midnight. I’m the person who can stay up until 3am for no good reason at all! I do a good job of setting several morning alarms so that I get up in time and make it to work!

Usually I spend ages getting ready in the morning as I have to add time in for sitting in my towel, laughing at memes and spending too long trying to pick an outfit. I’ll never change, but the products I use in the morning do. Here are a few of my top morning skincare products as of late… […]

  14. Ohh I so wish I was a morning person, I would love to be up early and actually make it through a whole day xx

    ‪Really loved this post. Seeing as I’m up early and most defiantly am NOT a morning person I feel like this is a whole new positive perspective on the early morning life.

  16. […] I wake up most days around 5.40am and whilst I feel a little groggy, my mind is up and active. I reach my peak between 9am and 11am and this is when I work best. I am happy to say I am a morning person. You can read more about that here. […]

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
