Which to be- Morning Lark or Night Owl

Morning Lark or Night Owl

“Morning Lark” are the type of people who goes by the quote ” Early to bed and early to rise“. The work comes from the bird lark which is also know as “messager of day“. To their contrary people who tend to wake up at late night to complete their work and wake up late in morning are referred to as “night owl”. The term derives from the bird owl who are night hunters. So are you a morning lark or a night owl.

Though it can be someones personal choice but scientists showed evidence that it depends on various factors. Like genes, if your mother or father was a night owl chances are high that you are too.
