Tomorrow is World Sleep Day so we are wondering -- Would you describe yourself more as an "Early Bird" or as a "Night Owl"?  For the record, men are more likely to be early birds, while women identify more heavily as night owls.

Fox News reports on a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Sleepopolis of 2,000 Americans who were split evenly between self-identifying as early birds and night owls. The findings are quite interesting. Check them out and see if you or folks you know line up with your fellow birds of a feather.

Early Birds:

  • Sleep seven hours a night
  • Have sex three times a week; more likely to be married
  • Average income: $42 thousand – $4,000 more than night owls

“More important than being a night owl or an early bird is making sure to have a consistent sleep schedule and get enough rest,” said Logan Block, the director of content at Sleepopolis. “With World Sleep Day approaching, it’s a nice time to reflect on our sleeping habits."
