Morning people really are happier than tired night owls6/12/2012
Those people who can muster up cheerful smiles almost as soon as they leap out of bed in the mornings aren't faking it. The results of a new study suggest morning people really are happier. The research, conducted by University of Toronto graduate student Renee Biss, also found old people are much more likely to be morning people than younger people: Only 7 percent of people aged 17 to 38 are morning people, but just 7 percent of those aged 59 to 79 are night owls. Biss theorizes old folks feel more content because society forces us to get up for activities like work and school -- which conflicts with younger people's desires to go out in the evenings.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
