The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Sunday Special -

Lark peo­ple wake up early and peak in the morn­ings, while owl peo­ple per­form bet­ter later in the day. But these sleep

pat­terns can get in the way of your pro­duc­tiv­ity

But we do know lack of it pro­motes obe­sity and pre­dis­poses some­one to Type 2 di­a­betes, and poor qual­ity sleep may raise blood pres­sure. Now dis­rup­tive sleep pat­terns are be­ing blamed for “de­viant” be­hav­iour.

Sci­ence jour­nal­ist and au­thor Linda Ged­des be­lieves: “If you don’t get enough sleep, re­search sug­gests you are more likely to en­gage with un­eth­i­cal and de­viant be­hav­iour, such as be­ing mean, bul­ly­ing your fel­low em­ploy­ees or fal­si­fy­ing re­ceipts.

“But it’s not just night owls: Early larks tend to be­have more un­eth­i­cally in the evening, and owls in the morn­ing. So, ide­ally, you want to in­tro­duce f lex­i­ble work­ing.”
