“Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”. – Ben Franklin, famously
Fresh Air, less noise and light atmosphere
When you wake up early in morning, you find a very light atmosphere filled with fresh air around you. This is the only time, when noise pollution is very less. Your mind gets clarity for the day as you plan. Studies have suggested that when a person gets up early, he is more energetic and takes lesser time to do a task that would take more time otherwise.
You are more energetic and take lesser time to do a task that would take more time otherwise. He is also more adept in taking better decisions, planning and achieving goals.
Some of the most successful people in the world are early risers. It’s simple, if you wake up early, you get more done.
You will get extra hours everyday to work for your dreams or important projects. Besides allowing you more hours for your work, it also boosts your speed. Your productivity increase. You feel inspired and motivated as you complete your tasks before time. This will overall affects your entire life, your career and your finance. Studies have suggested that when a person gets up early, his income also increases dramatically.
If you’re studying, you should know that research conducted by Texas University found that students who consistently woke up early each day actually scored better test scores and overall grade points, and consistently kept a higher average GPA than their night owl counterparts.
There are less distractions in the early hours of the day so you can achieve more with minimal interruptions. Your brain is in relaxed mode after a good quality night sleep, so you can do difficult mental and creative work in this morning time with more efficiency. And the perk is that you can all these quicker and better.
The person who wakes up early, has strong mind compared to the one who wakes up late. He takes better decision. Your stress level also reduces dramatically. You start your day on an optimistic note and such positivity often stays with you throughout the day. This is the time of the day when you are not in rush. You start your day with smile, relax mood and clarity. He is also more adept in taking better decisions, planning and achieving goals.
Obviously a rested mind is more prepared for what the day has to throw at it. Because you will be more organized and energized, you are also more prepared to take on what life throws at you.
Studies have shown “morning people” are often more positive, more optimistic and more likely to experience satisfaction in their lives.
Better Sleep Quality
Early risers often go to bed early. Getting up early is not something that should be followed irregularly but it needs to be well established as a routine in your life. This means going to bed early, and most likely at the same time every day and waking up early at the same time everyday. This translates into better sleep quality as your body’s internal clock adapts to your new sleep routine. You are also keeping your body in a circadian rhythm. Think of this as an internal clock that cues your body to do certain things at certain times of the day. This rhythmic pattern also supports how your brain functions.
Waking Up Early Improves Your Quality of Sleep.
Remember, If you are already waking up early but on weekends you wake up late, than this will harm you more to your body in long run. Always maintain a disciplined routine even on weekends or vacations.
There is a lot of power in “quiet time” and early risers often talk about enjoying the quiet time of earlier starts. By waking up early than the rest of the family, you probably have more quiet time to yourself at home. But this quiet time isn’t limited to home alone.
If you commute to work, early starts will see you avoiding the peak hour congestion and enjoying a quiet(er), more peaceful commute to work. Also, speaking from personal experience, I have found that I really enjoy starting work earlier than my other colleagues.
I relish the first couple of hours of my day as it’s distraction-free and it’s a great time to make important decisions as I am the most focused.
Even just sit and enjoy the silence of the morning in meditation. Or Pour your cup of coffee and watch the sun rise. This period of silence can actually be incredibly beneficial to your brain as well. Sitting in silence increases oxygen to your brain as your breathing generally becomes deeper and more controlled. This helps reduce migraines, high blood pressure, and overall taxation on your body to name a few.
Waking Up Early Helps You To Sustain a Healthier Diet
This is the most fav benefit I received from waking up early. I am following waking up early routine since a long time. My entire eating schedule is changed now. My metabolism is very strong. I eat better food and at proper time.
After I wake up I drink 1 glass warm water and then I eat some fruits. I do Yoga for one hour and then I eat powerful nutritious breakfast. If you wake up early, you never skip your breakfast and You will have your lunch and dinner on time. If your take your dinner early and on time, then you get proper time gap between your dinner time and sleep time. And you will have better sleep.
When you wake up late, chances that you skip your breakfast meal and your body goes into starvation mode so the next time you actually eat something, you are more likely to overeat and crave unhealthy foods.
Life Tip – Never skip your breakfast.
Breakfast is most important meal of the day. Your body has been on a “fast” all night (6 to 8 hours) and you need to “break the fast” with some healthy food. Eating breakfast is also a foundation for building healthy eating habits and makes you less likely to eat junk the rest of the day.
Waking Up Early Gives You More Time To Exercise
Studies proved that morning time is best time for exercise and yoga. So if you’re trying to commit to a regular exercise routine – make morning time your exercise time. If you want to find a reason for waking up early, then this can be your best motivation. Exercise and waking up early are a great way to combat lethargy.
Starting your day with a workout doesn’t only cut your early evening fatigue out of the equation, it is also super healthy for you! It burns more calories, and continues to do so at a higher rate after you have finished, plus it helps you sleep better at night. Exercise releases endorphins too, which area feel good hormones: making you start your day out in a good mood as well.
More Energy throughout the day
Better rest equals more energy. Early risers generally have better sleep patterns than night owls. Once you drop into deeper cycles of sleep, your blood pressure drops, breathing slows, muscles are relaxed, body temperatures drop, and the blood supply to your muscles increase. This results in tissue and bone both repair, as well as cellular corrections. Growth hormones are also released that are essential for muscle development.
