Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon shares new research that shows that those who like to stay awake late at night are less likely to be healthy. The study finds that night owls have a 10% higher risk of death than those who go to bed on time.
Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow says he believes this research but thinks a lot of it is a correlation. “If you are a night owl you’re probably a night eater, probably have a lot of bad habits, and are less likely to exercise,” says Dr. Dow. He does note that on the positive side, night owls probably have two bumps of energy throughout the day while early risers only get one.
Dr. Dow adds that sometimes the cause of being a night owl is untreated depression. Dr. Ordon adds if you sleep until noon, then it’s likely you will be up late, so it also depends on someone’s lifestyle. He shares that he has become conditioned to getting up early but can’t overemphasize the importance of a good night sleep, which is something OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landy, a self-proclaimed night owl, could probably use!
