Teenagers have different body clock

Sleeping standing up

There is an old mystery why teenagers love waking up late, around close to lunchtime. Although the main culprit is because they stay up late the night before, researchers are trying to get a scientific explanation. And answer they get!

It was found out in a research that teenagers body clock is programmed two hours delayed. Which means that their cognitive performace is at its peak in the afternoon.

Can it be the same for young employees who are already working? I mean, will it be good if they start working in the afternoon until late in the night because they function fully on those times? The normal 8am-5pm work time will de defied. But then again, the study was conducted in a four-season country and ours is a warm country. Due to humid weather especially in the afternoon, it will only makes us lethargic, and not productive.
