"Ethics Erode When Tired"
Researchers at Harvard and the University of Utah have been hard at work studying a correlation between tiredness and ethics.
Studies show that people exhibit more self-control and are more morally aware in the morning, and that ethics tend to fade in the afternoon hours.
This trend isn’t typically a result of stress or crisis, but rather, a “gradual depletion of self-regulatory processes as a result of unremarkable daily activities.”
In fact, several studies have confirmed this theory of “morning morality” and that sleep deprivation leads to “the decay of moral behavior.”
So, remember – get you rest, reset your moral compass, and make ethical decisions!
