Women Are Hardwired To Wake Up Earlier Than Men

BOSTON (CBS) – Ladies, have you ever wondered why your husband sleeps peacefully through the night but you wake up at the crack of dawn? Turns out men and women have different sleep-wake cycles.

Women are hard-wired to go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier than men which might explain why women often wake up in the wee hours of the morning and don’t feel as refreshed the next day.

Best advice? Go to sleep as soon as you feel tired.
