Anyone ever yell at you for doing something the wrong way? Maybe it wasn’t wrong at all; maybe they just wanted something done a certain way.

Geniuses have a few things in common. Going against the grain is one those things. A routine schedule and meeting expectations is commonly associated with success.

What if I told you that blazing your own trail was the way to create a successful life? Studies have shown that people who stay up late are actually smarter and more creative. Here’s why…

They are less stressed

A BBC report stated that late risers have less stress and are in better moods. This has to do with the fact that early risers use more cortisol, which results in more muscle aches, headaches and cold symptoms. Though some level

They drink coffee

Being a coffee drinker has some impact on success. Coffee drinkers often partake in extra physical activity, leading to numerous health benefits. The extra energy comes from the fact that caffeine in coffee blocks the inhibitory transmitter adenosine. This helps the brain and body both function at a higher level. Reaction time, memory, and general cognitive abilities are thus improved by drinking coffee. Though morning people might also drink coffee, there’s a disadvantage for them. A research found that coffee makes morning people up at night, while night owls are unaffected.

They make better use of golden time

According to an Australian research, human learn better in the evening. “Such time-of-day variations in function are not unusual. Organisms are adapted to the continual change in light and dark during a 24 hour period to avoid predators and to reproduce faster,” , the scientist explains. So when morning people are going back home to take a rest, night owls are making use of the best time of the day to equip themselves.

They remain alert for longer hours

In the study, brain activity was measured for the early birds and night owls. And the latter one scored higher. It is explained that nighttime minds have a longer circadian clock and hence can give more attention for a longer time.
