Early risers are slim, healthy and happySeptember 15th, 2011 - 10:51 pm ICT by IANS
London, Sep 15 (IANS) People who get up early in the morning are likely to be happier, healthier and slimmer than those who do not, says a study.
The researchers from London’s Roehampton University have found those who watch more TV are more likely to skip breakfast. It could be since they snack in the evening when watching TV, making them less hungry when they wake up in the morning, the Daily Express reported.
In the study, experts quizzed 1,068 adults to see if they were morning or evening people. They found that morning people tend to be happier, thinner and more conscientious than evening people. They are also more likely to eat breakfast.
Joerg Huber, the researcher, said: “These findings bear out the consensus that there are morning people and evening people, and that morning people tend to be healthier and happier, as well as having lower body mass indices.”
