If you are like me, and getting up early is no problem. I’m also pretty sure everyone has heard the term the early bird gets the worm but… is that really true?
Well in the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, I found as article that says finding out if you are a Early Bird or Night Owl is genetically predetermined, with Chronotype. People who are Night Owls in high school seem to have lower grades compare to the early birds and if it worsens in college it shows the same effect. Although you can change your sleeping habits, they have found that people who are Night Owls have been shifting their clocks when they are in college. Although there was a study found on Winnipeg Free Press that summarizes a study that people who are Night Owls tend to have a higher IQ then those who are Early Birds. The article also stated that people who are Early Birds are less likely to have addictions and depressions compared to Night Owls. Even though it seems Early birds have a better advantage, the Night Owls aren’t doing so bad themselves. It all depends on how productive you use your time.
