Research: Early risers may be more healthy than night owls
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Listen up, early risers--we have some promising news.
New research shows you may have a leg up on night owls when it comes to your health.
Scientists in Finland found morning people tend to eat better and earlier in the day, compared to those who go to bed later.
That can lead to higher risk for obesity for night owls.
Doctors recommend late sleepers try to wake up earlier, and watch what they eat at night.
Researchers say they also found night owls engaged in less physical activity, had more difficulty sleeping, and are more likely to smoke.
