Here’s Why People Who Sleep Late Are Smarter, According To Science

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.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
