Night Owls vs. Early Birds

Our chronotype determines whether we’re early birds or night owls. Our chronotype is how our body reacts to the time of day. There are typically three chronotypes: morning, day, and night.

  • Morning people are the early birds. They are awake, operate at peak efficiency in the morning, but usually can’t stay up for the late news.
  • Day people sleep a little later and are most effective in the afternoon.
  • Night owls sleep as late as possible and are up well past nightfall, into the wee hours of the morning.

Pros:

  3. Healthier

Cons:

  1. Energy crash: Whereas night owls get a second burst of energy in the later hours of the day, early birds tend to lose productivity and energy as the day goes on without getting a natural energy boost to keep them going.
  2. Tend to have higher levels of stress hormones, which can result in health issues like migraines, anxiety, and depression.
  3. Less socialization: Because early birds are wired to begin feeling tired earlier during the night, they may have a more difficult time in their social sphere.

CURATOR'S NOTE

There are two kinds of people in this world: people who delight in hearing birdsong first thing in the morning, and people who groan, and wish birds had a mute button.
