12 Ways Being a Night Owl Could Hurt Your Health
Getting a good night’s sleep is often easier said than done, especially when things like Netflix and Twitter and beating the next level of Candy Crush exist. But it is going to bed in the wee hours of the morning really that big of a deal? Is staying up late bad for you? Like most questions related to our health and daily habits, that answer is both yes and no. Some studies suggest that there are benefits to staying up late. People who consider themselves night owls may be at peak physical performance at night, with one study suggesting they may demonstrate increased strength at nighttime. It’s long been said that creativity and staying up late are connected. A study published in Personality and Individual Differences found that people who stay up late are more likely to come up with “creative solutions” to a problem than those who wake up early.
