Sounds okay to me. My son used to get up at about 3 in the afternoon when he was at Uni/on holidays.

On the weekends I almost always sleep in. Anything before noon is too early for me when I don't have to do anything. I feel like I've been drugged by anesthesia when I wake up early for work for the first half hour but it fades.

John 3:16 (NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

If it works, why not?

My body has been used to getting up at 7 - 7:30 AM on weekends - sometimes a little earlier without the alarm going off.

What is it you feel you should do? Emotions are always clumsy, they are like barking dogs. I would think long and hard about which needs / values you may be avoiding. Things sometimes get displaced and latched onto other things if there is something we aren't facing. (personal experience lol).

I lose all motivation to do anything that day when I sleep in. It feels like a waste of a day. Breaking the routine when you have to go back to work etc is hard too.

Apologies if that was presumptuous.

I should have probably worded it like, I feel the subconscious can send messages. This is based on what I have learned, and what I have personally experienced. When it does this, its clumsy like a dog, it just reacts in some way, with an emotion. That emotion might not be related to the thing its presenting as (because subconscious is like a dog, it doesn't "get" specific things, it just knows "something seems to be off here, BARK - feeling").

Something I have recently been doing, is to do "emotion maps". You think of an event which caused an emotion, then you write down the emotion. Think and try to "drill down further" and find more specific, or nuanced aspects of that emotion. Spend a minute doing this, dont try too hard, just let it flow, then see what you have. I find sometimes something surprising is in there.

This may be what you are looking for. Since there is nothing inherently wrong with getting up after 10am, or 2pm or 6pm (some people do shift work etc, how could it be morally 'wrong'?). There will be something, at least, interesting if you probe into the emotions a bit here. I can think if the kinds of emotions it might be, but i dont want to spoil it, and ofc its something you should try for yourself.

Has this always been your m/o? Or are you sleeping longer and longer now? Maybe you require more sleep than most or, conversely, you're worn out--either mentally or physically?

...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

I always slept in a little bit. it just seemed a bit extra. the feeling I had was... not much to get up for anyway. it's also tied up with my avoidance since if I get up later the flatmates are mostly gone. its possible I trained myself to sleep in with the reward of happiness from being home alone.

for work I get up at 4:45 or occasionally 3:45. and I usually have little trouble getting up when I have work. even when it's cold.

but anyway this was last weeks problem. I dont have a run of days off this week so I wont feel guilty or revert to questioning my motives.

as long as you get up in time to watch "the price is right"

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

I dont see a big issue with it assuming your not missing out on stuff you need to do in the morning. Ive read where it is important health wise to be consistent in what time you go to sleep and wake up everyday. So dont change it around wildly on a daily basis that is good.

What time are you going to bed? 3 or 4 am? Ask yourself are you doing anything productive after midnight? Would you be better off going to bed earlier and getting stuff done earlier in the morning?

This is exactly me. I absolutely hate that feeling. I'm getting things done and I still get it when I'm just chilling watching YT and stuff. Although in my case I strongly suspect that I do actually have some form of ADHD.
