Do you function better in the morning or in the evening? In a National Sleep Foundation poll, 37% of males and 44% of females reported being an “owl,” or evening person versus a “lark,” or morning person. Younger respondents were more likely to be night owls; more than half of all respondents age 18 to 29 said they work best at night.
Of course, if you’re a night person, it can be truly tough to get up at six in the morning to report to work. So what can you do if you only fully wake up and come alive after you get home from your daytime job?
