According to new research "night owls" have a higher risk of death than people who naturally wake up early.
Kristen Knutson, of Northwestern Medicine says, "We found that the night owls had a 10 percent increased risk of dying over about a six and a half year period."
The habits of a night owl are one thing that may increase the risk for early death.
For instance, eating at the wrong time could mean a person's body won't process blood sugar correctly which could contribute to diabetes or heart disease.
Experts recommend trying to go to bed a little bit earlier each night.
They also say that once a person is on a regular schedule it's important to maintain that schedule even on weekends and vacations.
