OK, the amount of time you are awake, and in the day would be roughly equal. But your productive hours are when everyone else is asleep.
Knowing that you use the hours best for you, regardless of what "office hours" generally are.
4. You get a proud feeling that while most of the world is sleeping, you are working. This feeling is really good for your morale💯
If you are a night owl, being on your schedule is great! Going grocery shopping at 10pm or 6am is a great experience!
A happy well rested self, is going to get more done with a higher degree of quality.
With all the morning plebs sleeping, you can buckle down and write code, strategize, and not get sucked into as meetings.
Ok, the science here isn't great for us night owls. Hopefully it's correlative. But the Gym is generally empty between 11pm and 4am!
And although studies say our health tends to be worse, we also tend to have more creativity, endurance, and better reasoning skills!
You can talk about it on social media.
Internet speed is usually faster in the middle of the night.
You can brag about being awake all night, getting stuff done.
This is a joke of a response to: https://dev.to/nirbhayvashisht/waking-up-early-in-the-morning-how-and-why-1eem
Us night owls get a lot of crap for our chronotype. It isn't easy being tired all day, and then once the sun sets getting a burst of energy.
Unfortunately, when the world was figuring out how to run businesses, factories, and schools; some jerks with money and power chose to slot us all into the great lie about the greatness of early risers. Multiple shifts would be better IMO.
My suggestion: Do what works for you, if you can. And always push for flexible hours. Even if you are a morning person!
And finally, Nirbhay Vashisht offers some great advice for us all! Whatever your schedule is, make it a schedule. A consistent bedtime and wake-time each day will help your route immensely. For me, the perfect bedtime is about 7am (when my real life allows it)
