Studies show that night owls do worse on memory tests than early risers. However, getting quality sleep as you age might be more important than getting up early in the morning. Aim for six to eight hours of sleep a night, even if that means going to bed and getting up later than your early-bird peers. Try to keep the same sleep schedule on weekdays and weekends to improve the quality of your sleep.
