Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy and wise. If you are a lark or morning person, you may not understand the lure of the late night.
Since you choose a sleep period of 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., you are not stumbling out of bed and throwing on some clothes just to get to work on time. You get up and are ready to take on the day. The 9 to 5 schedule not only suits larks’ natural body rhythm but also is likely to be more detail oriented, making morning larks more aware of potential problems and more prepared to deal with them.
A lark is steady as it goes. According to researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada, your performance remains relatively steady throughout the day. A lark wins the approval of bosses and supervisors who like to see workers coming in a bit ahead of schedule because he or she is more likely to be at his or her desk early.
A lark gets more family time. Children tend to wake early since they know their parents who are larks are here to greet them. The morning lark can enjoy more family time in the evening because he or she gets to work early and then he or she can get home on time.
A morning lark is thinner. The morning larks tend to be lower than night owls because of the exercise, eating habits and other factors. Larks are more likely to hit the gym when it comes to exercising.
Compared with owls, larks are happier and more optimistic. The early morning light may be an “upper”, helping fend off depression. If you are a morning person, you tend to be alert, and cheerful, and you will be more optimistic than the night owl. Morning larks are just plain likeable human beings.
Your bed plays a big part in your sleep. You cannot get the rest you need if your bed doesn’t give you support or is lumpy and sagging. Try a latex mattress.
