As a morning radio host, most people assume I'm a "morning person" but I assure you that's not the case. People who think that about me have never seen me in the afternoon. So, I was pleased to see this in the news today ....
A new study out of Belgium found there are really FOUR types of people:
1. Morning people, who are the most alert in the morning.
2. Night owls, who are most alert at night.
3. Afternoon people, who are most alert from around 11:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
4. And nappers, who are alert in the mornings, then fade HARD around 11:00 A.M., but then get a second burst of energy after 3:00 P.M. . . . especially if they can squeeze in a nap.
The researchers say it could actually improve all of our productivity if companies embraced sleep type and planned accordingly . . .
Early starts for morning people . . . late starts for night owls . . . long bursts of afternoon work for afternoon people . . . and midday naps for nappers.
