Do you wake up bright and fresh and ready to go?

Or does it take you a while to wake and rise, perhaps pretending the alarm did not really go off yet?

Yes, I am fairly awake as soon as I wake though not if I wake in the night.
I think I would be termed a morning person -I have to lie still for about 15 minutes anyway while I put drops in my eyes so by then I am usually well and truly read to get up.

I don't have coffee first thing either.

Hell no.
I bump into anything around me.
I sometimes just stand there...seriously!

trying to t h i n k ....I'm fine by 10 am.
I am a morning person but don't 'jump' out of bed anymore!
Like to get up slowly around 6am make a cup of tea, feed the cat and then go back to bed to drink my tea and wake up with the radio before being much more awake and getting up around 7am to have brekky

Yes!! I am an early morning person and have been this way since my late teens!!! I am always ready to get up as soon as I wake.
No. Must have coffee before any awakeness can really happen. I'm in the process of teaching my almost three year old to make coffee (without the boiling water bit obviously!)
Definitely not. It takes me at least an hour and a cup of tea to be able to hold a conversation in the morning.
No, it takes me a while to feel awake.
I actually set two alarms, the first to kind of wake me up and the second the actually make me get up. It takes me a good 20 minutes to fully wake, if I'm really tired, expand that to an hour.
I thought this was physically impossible.

I am definitely more of a morning person than a night owl but it takes me a few minutes to wake properly. Once I am out of bed then I am wide awake

I most certainly am wide awake from the moment I wake up.
A friend who was a hotel receptionist told me to that when she was called by anyone from work to query things at night she would take a few seconds to collect herself and answer as if she was not sleeping. I have since taken her advice and it works well for me

It depends, although usually I'm not. It takes me a while to get fully alert, so if I need to get up early I like to do some yoga or go for a walk first.
Definitely: no. A big no. I can't even see properly for the first five minutes.

For all the night owls out there: there were a few cases a couple of years ago published in the Sydney Morning Herald showing that 'morning people' and 'night owls' are real things, not just convenient labels, and that people need to sleep at different times each day.
No It takes atleast 5-10 min to wake up fully.
It depends a bit on the time of year for me. In winter I use my snooze button a lot. In summer I'm usually up and at em before the alarm even goes off.

It takes me a while to get going in the morning. My brain doesn't switch on for a while. I potter around for a while and wake up bit by bit.
When working, brain 'snapped' into alertness!

Now, can take me 10-20 minutes' to get brain into 'gear'! In the meantime, wander around kind of aimlessly, & wonder WHY have I gone to Laundry, i/o Kitchen!

Very rarely, it takes me 30 minutes to come out of the daze of sleep, I like it that way.
