Feeling Too Lazy to Get Out of Bed Can Be a Sign of Intelligence (So Hit the Snooze With No Regrets)

The temptation to just sleep in and maybe take a sick day is something we’ve all faced, but most of us fight it. Nothing good ever comes from being lazy, especially when the whole world, relatively speaking, is getting ready to start the day. That said, there is one good thing about not being a morning person…science suggests that it could be a sign of intelligence.

We at Bright Side face the temptation to hit that snooze button as much as anyone else so we are sharing what this study has to say with you.

Not wanting to get up in the morning is actually taking a stand against your genes.

The British study called, Why night owls are more intelligent, tells us to look at our ancestry. According to researchers Satoshi Kanazawa and Kaja Perina, early humans were early to bed and early to rise.

Deviating from the norm, which has been part of humans since the start, means people who don’t just want to start the day are actually better suited for modern living. This is in itself a sign of intelligence. After all, alarms with snooze buttons are a relatively recent invention.
