Are you a night owl, or a morning lark? Even if you do not stay up late in the night, do you still find yourself crawling out of bed in the morning? Some people love to be waking up early in the morning to start the day earlier than others. Meanwhile, others would rather work hard in the night and get up later in the morning. Which type of person are you? Do you prefer waking up early or late?
The benefits of waking up early
Waking up early has a lot of beneficial effects to one’s life. We will take only some into account in this post. The people who get up early in the morning tend to do more than the others. A research conducted at Texas University has found out that the students who get up earlier tend to get better grades at school. Also, if you wake up early, you would find more time to have breakfast and even do some exercise before starting your day. But to be able to get up early, you should also go to bed at a reasonable time. If you go to bed at 3 a.m., you will not wake up at 7 a.m. next morning probably. Although there are people who accomplish that, it is not the intended strategy if you want to change your lifestyle.
Waking up late: is it always bad?
Some people, especially the ones who work at night, prefer to stay up late and get up later in the morning. They like to be working (or partying) in the night even if that would mean less sleep for them. Some of them claim to be more productive when they stay up late in contrast to waking up early in the morning. Also, individuals who wake up late state that they are less prone to sleep deprivation. They claim that consistent patterns in their sleep schedule help better adjust their biological clock.
Whether you are a night owl or a morning lark, you should get a solid 7 hours of sleep every day. Whichever you choose, you should adjust yourself to get that much sleep. Otherwise, you would find yourself sleeping in the middle of the day, or giving less attention to your work or school. There are benefits of both waking up late and early. Now, tell us which one are you? Do prefer waking up early or late?
