weekly blog--one for the ages
Generation Z, Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers begin their days in different ways, and some of the differences can be attributed to age.
Baby Boomers are increasingly retiring, so they tend to wake up later than the working population. Nearly a third of them wake up after 7 am, compared to 15% of those aged below 65. Older age also correlates with healthier mornings. Those aged 65 and up tend to exercise and eat breakfast--two recommended components of any morning routine.
Some discrepancies are also unsurprising, considering generational trends. Millennials are the most likely to get their news online, while 13% of Baby Boomers read the paper every morning. Just 1% of 20-somethings say they read the morning paper.
