Are you an early bird or a night owl?

But recent studies of European doctors increasingly are forced to look at the apparent absurdity of wanting to one category of the population has a watch at 9 pm "cut down dead sleep" and another that is only an afternoon time begins to actively operate.Their results, on the one hand, confirmed the already established belief that everything in the human body is regulated by the internal clock, whether it is any hormonal response or turn on and off the activity of a particular gene.On the other hand - a sensation!It turns out that the person feels in a position to adequately prolonged wakefulness due to one single gene, designated Period-3 or Per3.This gene determines which of us is a night owl, and one bird.It would seem so simple: there are two versions of the gene Per3 - short and long.Human cells have two copies of each gene, so each of us can only be a combination of the three variants of copies - plus a long long, short, plus short and long plus short.Larks - people with a type of long gene, owls
- short.

As our bioritmika determined genetic program, we have inherited is destined to be an owl or a lark, unequivocally clear that no one is forced to restructure and re not.Needless to divide the population of owls and larks in Europe happened recently - in the 70s of the last century.But then the mismatch of biorhythms in the couple loved to illustrate a bed picture: the husband in bed, smacking his wife on the cheek and says that for five minutes in the shower runs.Five minutes later she was back, but the husband has a gun did not wake - it is a lark that helped.In the morning, five of hours, trying to love the rehabilitation on his part doomed to failure, because the wife of an owl, and her before ten am not crucified.In general, according to statistics on our planet about 40% of the population fall under the definition of "owl", 25% - larks, and the rest - intermediate, they called them the pigeons.They belong to a mixed type, that is, can be, and owls and larks.And the doves go to bed an average of 23 hours.Bedtime, in other words - the interruption of wakefulness, as well as early morning activities of the day, whether it's five in the morning or in the afternoon, all this significantly affects the performance of our health.

Doctors and sociologists have noticed that the modern pace of life is completely adjusted to the larks.It's safe to say the partial discrimination owls, because, for example, until they shake, most state institutions, banks, clinics have closed, and the owl to be late.Due to the fact that the working day institutions and enterprises begins in the morning owls accumulate "lack of sleep".By the end of the week they are already broken and languid, and part of their activity is useless.A tangible threat to the health of owls gets the evening meals.They eat a lot of "looking for the night," and went to bed with a stuffed stomach, rapidly gaining weight.A chronic lack of sleep lowers levels of the hormone leptin, which helps cleanse the blood sugar.As a result, the researchers note owls folds of fat in the neck.

leave aside cons plaguing owls and talk about larks.It turns out that they are in many respects more vulnerable owls.The need to adapt to the owls at Lark made them more resistant to stress, inner clockwork owls adapt to change more than larks.By the way, people will get tired, larks, by the end of the day, when people-owl just typed "crackdown", larks, as they say, "I have none."Owls at night, when the height of the show activities much more energetic and just more fun than larks.But they are at risk of depression.But the owl on average more likely to change partners and it does not cost anything to recapture a partner at Lark.In love, they are more bright and more active ...

Nature we "reward" an innate ability to be an early bird or a night owl.People have long put everything on priorities: "The early bird catches the worm" and risers popozdnee, called names lazy, not taking into account that they go to bed after midnight.The life of modern cities is that it does not freeze at night.Leading sociologists say that the work on schedule larks, as it has developed over the centuries - this is nonsense.Today's technology allows to switch to flexible work schedules that take into account each employee chronotype.Owls do not lose self-control in the most critical situations, so they are suitable profession attendant, emergency workers, firefighters, a number of military specialties.Larks also ensure revival of the city and prepare it for full employment or day Sunday.And for couples advice one: with the understanding to perceive reality as it is, and be tolerant of their biorhythms second matrimonial halves.
