“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” – Ben Franklin, famously
“The early morning has gold in its mouth,” said Benjamin Franklin. The analogy by Franklin is by no means long drawn because getting up before the sun has many perks. Following is a list of reasons which will convince you to set your alarm for 6 a.m. tomorrow.
Getting up early gives you a kick start for the day ahead. Besides allowing you more hours for your work, it also boosts your speed. 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. He is also more adept in taking better decisions, planning and achieving goals.
How does waking up early help productivity?
- There are less distractions in the early hours of the day so you can achieve more with minimal interruptions.
- After a good night’s sleep, your brain is charged and ready to work hard. You are at your efficient best and will get things done quicker and better.
- Early risers are also better at making decisions, planning and setting goals.
- Waking up early may find you grumpy in the beginning but once you get used to it, you will have more energy to take on the day.
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 established as a routine in your life. This translates into better sleep quality as your body’s internal clock adapts to your new sleep routine.
Getting up early instils you with positivity. A research has suggested that people who got up early were happier, not just for a short duration but overall in life.
Waking Up Early Helps You To Sustain a Healthier Diet
Often late snoozers tend to skip breakfast because they try to get in every last wink of sleep and skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast is a bad idea because your body needs those nutrients in the morning for energy and focus.
Your body has been on a “fast” all night (6 to 8 hours) and you need to “break the fast” with some healthy food. When you decide to skip your A.M. meal, your body goes into starvation mode so the next time you actually eat something, you are more likely to overeat and crave unhealthy foods. Eating breakfast is also a foundation for building healthy eating habits and makes you less likely to eat junk the rest of the day.
And To Sum It All Up …
You know the old saying “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”. It’s true. All of these benefits of waking up early fuse together into one great benefit – the benefit is possibly living a longer, healthier life – free of hypertension, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and most any other deadly ailments that you can think of.
Why? Because a healthy diet that contains the nutrients we need being received in the morning until the time we go to sleep help keep us in shape and slim. Exercise helps with exercising your heart and burning fat calories.
