THERE is no such thing as waking up on the wrong side of the bed — if you are grumpy in the mornings it’s not your fault, it’s in your genes.
That is the finding of scientists who have uncovered genetic variations which make some people more inclined to bounce out of bed early and go to bed early, while others can only get themselves going on a later cycle.
Gold Coast sleep specialist Amanda Bude said the research will give health professionals more insight into treating sleep problems.
“Sleep is a necessity, not a luxury. If you know that you are not a morning person you can adjust your schedule to get the best out of your body,” she said.
