🦉I have always been a night owl, I thrive at night. I read that these temporal preferences might be due to a delayed circadian rhythm, the internal clock that controls melatonin levels, body temperature, and sleep drive. I read that for owls, peak productivity can hit in the evening, rather than during the typical 9-to-5 workday, even tho I wake up at 8 am and start my day by 9 I can go all the way to 3 am working, doing house chores, taking care of my family.

Some research has shown that being a night owl might actually boost creativity to work when we’re tired. Generally, while working, we’re dealing with two distinct types of problems: analytic and insight. Analytic problems require more systematic solutions, repeating the same process again and again until you get the right answer (think algebra). Insight problems, on the other hand, often try to trick the solver and require out-of-the-box thinking. We’re better at solving insight problems during non-peak hours when our brain is less focused and more prone to distraction. These distractions help to trigger the “aha” moments necessary to move forward on creative or innovative projects.

Since I started my business I don't mind going to bed late, I really love what I do, I can't stop thinking about what else I need to do, what could I improve in my process and every morning is exciting!
