All is not lost for your productivity if you're a late riser

Early starts and early bedtimes are presented as the tried-and-tested, ideal schedule for uni work, but could a night owl approach boost your productivity?

As someone who struggles to get out of bed before noon on most days, I have always hated when people call me lazy or are adamant that the early bird gets the worm.

I’ve tried the standard early to bed, early to rise schedule and that has just left me feeling more exhausted than well-rested. I can never get my brain to focus until the evening.

"Finding a routine that works with your lifestyle and habits is essential and maintaining it consistently is the key to maximise your productivity and get a good rest in."

Since my sleep patterns do not match the standard 9-5 day, I find that working in the evening through till night time is more productive for me. My phone doesn’t buzz as much, the environment is quiet and there are much fewer things I can do to avoid my work. I do my best uni work when the sun goes down, as that’s when my brain is the most functional and there are less disruptors around me to put off doing it.

Finding a routine that works with your lifestyle and habits is essential and maintaining it consistently is the key to maximise your productivity and get a good rest in. All in all, stick with what works for you; you don’t have to wake up at the break of dawn to have a constructive day unless you are able to.
