Can night owls ‘retrain’ their body clocks to improve mental wellbeing and performance?

 A new study has determined that a simple change to the sleeping patterns of people known as ‘night owls’ can not only decrease depression and stress but can instill better eating habits and improved performance.

An international collaboration between the Universities of Birmingham and Surrey (both UK) and Monash University (Melbourne, Australia) explored the possibility to tweak the sleeping patterns of ‘night owls’. The study, published in Sleep Medicine, showed that the circadian rhythms of ‘night owls’ could be shifted using non-pharmacological and practical interventions.
