Read this and thought I'd share... though when I was doing the morning shift, I swore it was killing me. Now I'm staying up too late, working on bills, watching TV, etc... and don't want to get out of bed in the morning. Not sure that being a night owl will make me die sooner, but it sure is killing my motivation!!
Here's the story--
A new study says people who stay up late are more likely than morning people to suffer a variety of health problems and die sooner.
Researchers from Northwestern University tracked nearly half a million adults, including morning people and night owls, over more than six years.

The night owls also were more likely to have diabetes, neurological disorders, psychological problems, digestive issues, and trouble breathing.
The study is published in the journal "Chronobiology International."
