Early Risers are Happier

Early Riser

It turns out that people with established habits of getting up early in the morning have a more attractive body shape, their health is up to par and they are happier in general.

Getting up early is also indicative of better organization and handling of home and work tasks. This conclusion was reached by scientists quoted in the British "Telegraph".

The same cannot be said for those who have trouble rising in the morning and love laying around. For them, there is a greater risk of depression, obesity and stress.

These conclusions were reached based on a massive investigation, studying the eating and sleeping habits, as well as the emotional state of nearly 1070 people.

Thus it became evident that among the sleepyheads there were more people who often suffered from anxiety and health problems. They are also not the best workers and in most cases do not have great chances for a promotion or an enviable career.

Healthy and successful people were also marked out by their getting up on the weekends. Even on Saturdays and Sundays, "happy folks" usually got up before 8, while those more susceptible to depression and obesity - after 10 o' clock.


Let us not forget that anyone who sleeps less than 5-6 hours per day puts their psychological and physical health at serious risk. The cardiovascular system, hormonal balance, blood sugar regulation and reaction ability, the immune system, all depend on a good night's sleep.

Sleeping well (6-8 hours a day) is the main cause for hormones in the body to keep up the balance between feelings of hunger and satiety.

On the other hand, lack of sleep can lead to feelings of agitation and trouble concentrating, as well as a deeply depressing bad mood.

It is also important how we sleep. Exposure to faint light during the night - such as the glow of a TV screen for example, can provoke changes in the brain, which lead to abrupt changes in moods.
