1.What kind of people usually get up early? And why?

All sorts of different people get up early for quite a few different reasons. Children and young teenagers must wake up early to get to school on time. Similarly, many adults have to wake up very early to commute to work. Dependant on the job some adults wake up between 6am and 8am but there are certain jobs where people must wake up even earlier. In contrast to this, many retired elderly people still wake up early. Some people just enjoy being awake in the early morning, to watch the sun rise and experience the fresh air.

2.Is it easier for older people to get up early than young people?

Personally I believe it is easier for older people to get up early than young people. Children begin life waking up very early in the morning but after about the age of four or five they enter the developmental stage of their growth and require lots of sleep. Therefore, children and teenagers often find it very difficult to wake up in the mornings as they need their rest. In contrast to this, adults require far less sleep than children do. Furthermore, they have had their entire lives to adjust to waking up early for work, therefore waking up early comes naturally to older people.

3.What are the benefits of getting up early?

There are many benefits to getting up early. There have been many studies which show that waking up early improves an individual’s energy levels throughout the day, even though this may seem counter intuitive (违反直觉的).Waking up early has also been proven to have positive effects on improved mood and greater happiness in people. Furthermore, people who wake up early are normally more productive and better adjusted individuals. However, there are some people who would disagree with me. Many people find that waking up early leaves them tired throughout the day and very unproductive.

4.What effect does sleeping in late have on a person’s life patterns?

Sleeping late can have very adverse (不良)effects on a person’s life pattern (模式).We all develop natural routines in our day to day life and small changes can have large effects on these. If somebody starts sleeping much later in the day then they may lack their usual energy and enthusiasm. This will make them less productive and could potentially even decrease their mood which can lead to depression. Therefore it is very important that one has a regular and sensible sleeping pattern. However,occasionally there are people called ‘night owls (夜猫子)’ for whom the inverse (逆、 相反)is true. These people feel most productive during the night and therefore sleeping late can have positive effects for them.
