Podcast Ep 45 – Mental Health Problems Linked to Early Risers


An article in The Guardian today mentions a study at the  University of Exeter. This study suggests those who get up early are less likely to suffer mental health problems. People who stay up later in the evening, but have to get up early in the morning are also more likely to suffer from mental health problems such as schizophrenia.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you find it easy to get up early? Is your mental health affected by late nights?

Please DM me on my Twitter with your thoughts.

I also take a look at the role of the asylum, and how it dealt with people with mental health problems.
