'A recent study reports that older people do best tackling their hardest projects in the morning.
I’ve always been a night owl. Even as a kid I was begging my folks to let me stay up late at night, but the next morning it was a different story—I hoped everyone would forget I existed so I could stay comfy under the covers.
I figured I’d be a night owl the rest of my life, but according to a recent study, that may not be such a good idea.
Researchers from the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Health Sciences and University of Toronto recently discovered that older adults perform best on mental tasks in the morning. May seem like common sense, but for folks like me who are used to burning the midnight oil, it may mean that we’ll need to think about making a change sometime in the future.'
