15 Things Everyone Who Hates Mornings Struggles With


Mornings were invented with the intention of torturing us.

Seriously, who thought ‘making everyone get up early sounds like a great idea!’

Whoever thought originally was either stupid or cruel.

I hate having to get up in the morning. If I make plans with someone in the morning (before 11 am) you can guarantee I’m going to be late to that or not make it at all.

I don’t know how I managed to get up for school when I was a child, but it’s a miracle that I did.

I’m not grumpy about mornings because I haven’t had my coffee at that point, though coffee does help. I’m grumpy about mornings because I don’t want to wake up.

It’s even worse because your bed becomes even comfier when you have to get up early.

If you struggle with mornings, don’t worry you’re not alone.

Here are a few struggles all morning haters will understand.

1. Sleepless

No matter how long you’ve slept for, you’re always tired. Whether you slept for 6 or 18 hours the night before, you can always do with another hour in bed.

2. Preparation

It usually takes you three hours to reply to any messages you may have received overnight. Thinking properly before 10 am is impossible!

3. No Filter

Looking friendly and cheery before 1 pm at the earliest is nearly impossible. But let’s be honest, you’re out of bed. You have no reason to be cheery at that moment!

4. Coffee

Vampires need blood to survive, people like us need coffee to be able to function in the morning. So I guess this makes us morning vampires?

5. Hang In There

Your hangover remedy involves a lot of coffee and staying in bed until you stop feeling like you’re dying of the plague.

6. The Early Bird

You hate it whenever someone says “the early bird catches the worm”. Let’s be honest, while that may be true, you’re not a bird.

7. Children

If you have children, you understand how heartbreaking it is to be woken up on the weekend. ‘Oh it’s 7 am? That’s just great dear… Let mommy go back to sleep for six more hours.’


8. Laughable

You can’t help but laugh whenever someone suggests getting up early for a walk or a jog while you’re on vacation. Do they even know you?


You’re not really an afternoon person either. In fact, we’re not even sure you’re a person at all.

10. Shocking

You’re friends and coworkers were shocked the first time they saw you at happy hour at the local bar.

It’s a whole new side to you. You’re actually excited, talkative, and alive!

11. Sleeping

Sleeping is an incredible, incredible feeling. But let’s be honest. Listening to someone get ready for work while your sleeping is the best.

12. Emotional Emojis

The main emojis you use before noon involve angry, sad, and any other displeased faces you can find. We also use the crying emoji quite a lot too.

13. Alarming News

You set 6-7 alarms every morning because you usually don’t even hear the first 3 alarms.

14. Sleeping In

You have to explain to your friend what your definition of ‘sleeping in’ means. To them, it usually means sleeping until 9 or 10, but to us, it means sleeping in until 1 or 2 pm.


You’ve read lots of articles on how to be a better morning person, but at this point, it’s pretty pointless. It just seems like a lot of hard work.
