In the 1960 Rubrics, it's permitted to anticipate Matins (but not Lauds) on the previous day. Before then, you could anticipate both any time after 2 PM. In the Liturgy of the Hours, Matins (the Office of Readings) can be said at any time during the day, but never anticipated.

Privately you can do what you like. One option is to say tomorrow's Matins after Compline, to keep the entire day intact instead of interrupting it with part of tomorrow's Office. Since you're not bound to say the Office, you could say that day's Matins later in the day; I'd keep it at least before Vespers if not earlier.
Peace.....tks!  It sounds like a good plan to do it right after compline or early in the day - not take on a larger office when fatigue is setting in.....it's more difficult to absorb and contemplate the words if too tired.  Tks again and God bless, angeltime :heart:
