内容提要:保证充足睡眠。或许有些老掉牙,但睡足7-9小时确实更容易让你早起。小建议就是,请让笔记本电脑以及其他事务远离床头,酣睡一觉吧!


At 6 AM, most of us are lucky if we have the energy to reach for a cup of coffee. Mornings may be rough, but hold off on sleeping in. There are perks to waking up with the sun, and we've got some tips on making it easier.

早上6:00,大部分人估计都没那本事爬起来冲杯咖啡吧?早上是痛苦的,赖床怎么也赖不够。不过,还是有办法能让你伴着阳光醒来的,下面这些建议,就能让你早起更轻松!

Snooze and Lose: The Need to Know

贪睡与损失:你有必要知道

The old “I’m just too tired” complaint may be more than a sorry excuse for waking up late. Research suggests there are biological differences between early larks, who wake up at the same time every morning and feel most active around 9 AM, and night owls, who get more stuff done once the sun goes down. And it may get easier to greet the day at dawn as we get older, thanks to body clock changes as we age .

那句“我只是太累了”的烂熟抱怨或许不只是晚起的借口那么简单。研究表明,“早起鸟”和“夜猫子”在生物上有着很多区别。“早起鸟”每天早上同一时间清醒,上午9:00时大脑最为活跃;而“夜猫子”的办事效率则在太阳落山后更高。而且,老了以后或许会更容易适应凌晨就醒的状态,毕竟人体生物钟也会随着年龄增大而发生变化。

It turns out the early bird may get more than the worm. According to self-reports from college students, those who wake up earlier feel more optimistic and proactive than those who rise later. Other studies have found morning larks tend to be harder working and conscientious than night owls. (Still, it’s not clear whether waking up early actually makes someone more productive or optimistic.)

事实证明,早起的鸟儿或许真的就能吃到更多的虫子。根据大学生的自我报告,早起的人比晚起的人要更乐观积极。其他研究也发现,“早起鸟”比“夜猫子”更努力更自觉。(不过,早起是否真能让一个人变得更有效率或更加乐观,依然不甚清楚。)

And perhaps the secret to a 4.0 isn’t only hitting the books: Another study of university undergraduates found those who said they function better in the morning received higher grades than those who preferred the evening That’s possibly because morning risers are more likely to get to class on time or to forgo late-night partying. Researchers also suggest memory may improve during sleep, so getting to bed earlier in preparation for a morning alarm could help those exam notes soak in.

或许考高分的秘诀不只是“啃书本”了:大学生的另一项调查发现,那些自称早上头脑更清晰的人,通常也比那些夜晚型的人更容易考高分。这很可能也是因为早起型的人更容易准时上课或不去参加深夜派对吧。研究人员还认为,记忆可能会在睡眠时得到增强,所以早点上床准备第二天早起的话,确实会有助于吸收记忆考试内容吧。

Being a morning person may actually be good for our health, too. When UK researchers questioned adults about their sleep habits, they found people who stay under the covers on the weekdays until 9 AM are more likely to be stressed, overweight, and depressed than those who get up at 7 AM. Another study found teenagers who went to bed and woke up late were less inclined to hit the gym and more likely to be overweight than those who went to bed and woke up early. Talk about waking up on the wrong side of the bed. (Again, remember it’s not clear that waking up early causes stress, depression, or weight gain.)

而且,做一个早起的人确实也有益于身体健康。当英国的研究人员调查成年人的睡眠习惯时,他们发现,工作日赖床赖到9:00的人,比那些7:00就起床的人更容易增加体重、感到沮丧有压力。另有调查发现,较之于早睡早起型,那些晚睡晚起的年轻人不太会去健身运动,自然也就更容易发胖。这正是起不了床又毁了一天的情绪。(当然,早起是否会导致压力、抑郁或体重加剧,依然不甚明确。)
