Ok I’ve always been a bit of a night owl and preferred shift work for this reason. In fact after 2 yrs, I’m still not adjusted to 9-5 life (I’ve tried earlier in life to only to return back to shift work). I struggle a lot with it as often my deepest sleep occurs when I need to get up for work.
However, why does my mum's cognitive ability peak late at night, like between 9pm - midnight.? And even further on if it weren’t me wanting to go to bed for work sake, lol.
I feel like I’m able to have much better conversations with her at night. There is a drastic difference to her cognitive understanding between day and Night. Her rational is also better, ie she’s able to reason.
At day time there’s often no reasoning and tantrums. She seems more confused at day.
She does get up rather late, ie brunch, sometimes lunch coz I allow her to rest while I start work or I wouldn’t get anything done.
What's going on here?
Having said that, I’ve always said about myself that my brain is most powerful in the afternoon at work. Is the same disposition at play here?
