My husband sent me a link to an interesting news article on a recent study...
To slim down, it helps to get up early and see the light, study says
I think we've basically known that, judging by various articles here on the Spark about the advantages of waking up early. I also know that many of us have butchered up schedules, what with working split shift/second shift/third shift (etc), having babies that wake up all hours of the night, you name it. (This isn't a contest to name the most exotic reason why we go to bed late and don't wake up early!!).
I know many nights I'm up late-thirty just because I'm on the internet, reading all the wonderful articles and blogs here on the Spark, goofing off on Facebook, whatever...
Soooo ... this is yet another reason why I need to get outside and at least be aware and cognizant of the light outside. There are gobs of other reasons, like staying outside for awhile (before 10 am or after 3-4 pm, to avoid the majority of skin-cancer causing UV and UB rays) to help build up one's supply of Vitamin D, or to get myr exercise over with for the day.
