How Sleep Chronotype Works

How Sleep Chronotype Works

Chronotypes are genetic, linked to your PER3 gene. Your chronotype is connected to your internal body clock and circadian rhythms.

In addition to influencing the times you wake or go to sleep, the length of your PER3 gene also dictates how much sleep you need. Night owls need less, early birds need more.

Chronotype - Bears N Wolves

Chronotype - Bears N Wolves

  • Bears naturally sleep and wake according to the sun. They feel most energetic during daytime and have little trouble falling asleep at night. A Bear’s peak productivity occurs in the mid-morning and dips during mid-afternoon. 50% of the population falls into this chronotype.
  • Wolves (or traditionally the night owl) wake up later and go to sleep later than others. A Wolf’s peak productive time is in the middle of the day, and their productivity lasts until the evening, when all other chronotypes have already logged out. 15 to 20% of the population falls into this chronotype.

How To Not Fight Your Chronotype

How To Not Fight Your Chronotype

Do not fight your chronotype — move with it! Go to sleep when you’re tired rather than forcing yourself to go to bed earlier or later. Schedule your most important tasks during your peak productivity periods.

But most of all, don’t give yourself a hard time about your chronotype. Whether you are a night owl or an early bird, it doesn’t say anything about you as a person. It is in your genes, and simply explains your most natural rhythm.
