Early Bird Or Night Owl – The Difference Is Like Night & Day!
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.
