Research reveals that ‘Early birds are happier’June 13th, 2012 - 10:16 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Toronto, June 13 (THAINDIAN NEWS) According to a new research, early risers are the happiest. Scientists have concluded that individuals who get up earlier in the morning were generally healthier and happier than to “night owls”.
University of Toronto researchers stated that early risers are more satisfied with their lives because they find it easier to adapt themselves to life’s “schedule”.
Renee Biss, a PhD student in the university’s Department of Psychology and the director of the research, stated that the survey has shown that adults have different levels of positive feeling, depending on how early they got up. These University of Toronto members have discovered that humans who preferred the evening are more prone to social jet lag, while morning-type people or larks are more energetic, feeling more awake, alert, happier. This, gives them enough motivation to tackle every day challenges, and makes them more satisfied with their lives.
The research report, published in the journal Emotion, found that most individuals stop being “night owls” as they get older. By the time people reach age 60, most people became morning types.
The researcher members ascertained that less than one in 10 young individuals can be regarded as “morning larks”.
