Int J Chronobiol 4 2: Whether we are larks or owls tends to change as we age. Teenagers and adolescents are more likely to be night owls, and questionjaire we get older, we have a natural tendency to become morning larks.
Night owls are more productive during the night, where as morning larks are more productive during the morning. By scheduling high intensity tasks at your peak times you can effectively get more done. If you have flexible work commitments you may find it useful to qeustionnaire shift your sleep timing forwards or backwards to best take advantage of your most productive times.
Society is traditionally morning centric with early morning evenlngness or commitments being the norm. This however does seem to be changing with a new shift into 24 hour lifestyles. People can now work and rest at whatever time they want. Targeting job opportunities that provide the best match for your sleep pattern can give you a distinct advantage in the workplace. There are some important considerations to keep in mind.
Hardcore owls or larks have a higher risk of developing a circadian rhythm disorder, where by they stay up later and later or go to bed earlier and earlier, until their sleep pattern goes out of control. This can be an issue for owls who need to be up in the morning, or for larks who need to stay awake into the evening.
