The early bird catches the worm ... and he's chipper all day, too. Morning people are happier and more satisfied with life than night owls, a new study suggests, according to LiveScience.
"We found that older adults reported greater positive emotion than younger adults, and older adults were more likely to be morning-type people than younger adults," study researcher Renee Biss, a graduate student at the University of Toronto, told LiveScience. "The 'morningness' was associated with greater happiness emotions in both age groups."
Only about 7 percent of young adults are morning types, but this tends to change as people age. Morning people also reported feeling healthier than night owls. So why are morning types so perky? Well, they might be more likely to get enough sleep, but they're also on track with the rest of the world. "Society's expectations are far more organized around a morning-type person's schedule," Biss told LiveScience. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
