How I Dynamically Liberate Spunk Day or Night

Home / Design Diary / How I Dynamically Liberate Spunk Day or Night

A good friend of mine once asked if I was a night owl or a morning lark.  This reference to my energy patterns was certainly thought provoking.

After talking with many people – I realized how many people regard being a morning or evening person as part of their identity.  Lark verses night owl identities significantly results cultural meaning.

Essentially, this relational category helps us gravitate towards specific relationships and accomplishments.

My energy bursts seem to be in the morning, so one may say I’m a Lark. Sometimes I like to get myself organized and complete all essential tasks (laundry, cleaning, e-mails, workout) that expend a lot of physical or mental energy in this time frame. Evenings are always more geared to the quieter things I enjoy, including going for a walk, reading, or a phone call with a good friend.

Do you relate? Then one might presume you’re a Lark.

This morning I woke up earlier than usual. I didn’t have anywhere to be until an hour later than the usual. Due to this change, I was able to expend so much more energy at home geared towards starting dishes, organizing my space, leaving a note for my boyfriend and planning for the upcoming weekend.  This start made my day. It gave me instant feelings that comes with accomplishments.

Despite the fact that I don’t typically stay up for late night talk shows, I wouldn’t say that I am just one way or the other.

What I’m conveying here is I wouldn’t call myself a Lark.

Instead, I know my energy levels and when I am most energetic. This dynamically liberates me to plan my spunky tasks accordingly based off that. No matter day or night, I maintain endurance and drive for the things that I want to prioritize.

If one must box themselves into being labeled it may skew the potential for productive moments. Judge me as a Lark or Night Owl. I’m not missing out on life’s advantages.
