The reason behind why you have a such a love affair with your bed, the truth about your need for extra zzz's in the A.M. and why you keep hitting snooze despite your best efforts to open your eyes? It's all in your genes! Yes, research from the University of Leicester shows that a person's biological clock and it's functions are directly related to genetics. Your biological clock refers in this instance to a broad range of bodily functions (sleep patterns, etc), not just your reproductively time limit. The research suggests that the entire genetic make-up of someone who prefers being awake in the morning is completely different from one who enjoys being more nocturnal creatures. It comes down to genetic variations in DNA. Thus the structure of a typical 9 to 5 job isn't productive for nearly half of the population, because their DNA is composed differently. So now you know that it has nothing to do with laziness why you can't drag yourself out of the covers when the sun rises! Perhaps scientists can change the future of work schedules, and rule out 8 a.m. shifts based on DNA testing, wouldn't that be nice? And don't forget, just because you aren't a morning person, doesn't mean you can't fit in a killer workout!
