WAKE UP! Early birds do get the worm and happier life, says expert

In what seems like a study done by your mother, it’s been found that people who are early risers also succeed more in the workplace.

Dr. Joerg Huber proved the early bird DOES get the worm.

They also are less depressed, less stressed and skinnier, on average, according to researcher Dr. Joerg Huber of Roehampton University in London. He announced his finding in a British Psychological Society conference in mid-September

“Morning people tend to be healthier and happier as well as having lower body mass indices,” said Huber, who was featured in London’s Daily Telegraph.

His study of 1,068 adults found night owls roll out of bed by 8:54 a.m. and after 10 a.m. on weekends. They were more likely to eat more unhealthy fast food, more calories and less healthy fruits and vegetables, according to another study.

They were also found to be heavier weight-wise, and had a harder time losing weight than those who got out of bed before 7 a.m.
