As one who has been getting up at 5:00 am (or earlier) for many years, I can say this practice often turns into burning the candle at both ends. My wife and my children all prefer to stay up late. But, by 9:00 pm (particularly when I’m awake by 3:00 am) I am tired, irritable, and disinterested in participation in family activities.
If I could do it all over again. . .
