Women who wake up early are less likely to develop depression than those who love a lie-in, claims a new study.

Researchers from the University of Colorado, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard, and the University of Vienna looked at data from a large study in the US assessing the health of female nurses for nearly 30 years. In a one-offquestion in 2009, they were asked whether they were morning or evening types. More than 32,000 women were then followed for four years, during which there were 2,581 new cases of depression.

Definite morning types had a slightly lower risk of depression than people who said they were neither strong morning or evening types, claimed the research published in the Journal of Psychiatry Research.

However, the NHS says evidence for morning types being more likely to avoid depression “is weak”, as the results were based on a very specific group. “Often, altered sleep patterns can be triggered by depression, so a clear cause and effect relationship shouldn’t be presumed.”
