Morning larks are less likely to have depression.
Morning people have few problems springing out of bed bright and early to face the day.
Now it has emerged they are less likely to suffer from depression and are generally happier too.
A study has found morning ‘larks’ are up to 35 per cent less likely to suffer from depressive symptoms, based on their genes.
These people, who are more likely to be older and female, also have better wellbeing.
The silver lining for night owls is their ‘late riser’ genes may also make them more intelligent, perhaps because they spend more time reading when they are up late.
