Early Birds Have Lower Risk of Developing Depression
A recent research from the US finds that people who go to bed and wake up early have a lower risk of developing depression.

Having analyzed the gathered data, the team concluded that early birds had a 12–27% lower risk of depression than other participants.
Lead study author Céline Vetter says: “Alternatively, when and how much light you get also influences chronotype, and light exposure also influences depression risk.
