Waking Up Early: The Benefits Of An Early Start

In this article I will write about some of the benefits to waking up early in the day. There are many reasons why waking up quite early in the morning is a good thing for you to do. Let’s now go over why waking up early in the day is a good idea for you.

Waking up early

One benefit to waking up early in the day has to do with health. There are benefits to awakening and sleeping at the same times as the sun rises and sets. In modern times, with the invention of electricity and artificial lights, we hear of many people suffering from insomnia. Scientists know that artificial light keeps us awake at night. Try to sleep with your window blind’s open at night. This can help to eliminate insomnia. Imagine being woken up at 6:00 AM in the morning by the sun. Next, imagine how you would feel at 11 PM that night. It would be hard to stay awake past 11:00 PM if you had not had a nap. Waking up early can really help with insomnia and irregular sleeping patterns.

Quiet time of the day

Another reason for waking up early in the morning is that there are far less distractions than later in the day. Once other people have woken up, there are more phone calls, emails, and other kinds of interruptions which can arise during the day and disrupt your workflow. By waking up early in the day, you are ensuring yourself a small window of time to work on your projects, before the rest of the world wakes up and requires your attention for various reasons. You are also mentally alert and ready to handle your most important challenges of the day in the morning due to having a full night’s rest. I have written previously about the power of accomplishing your most important tasks first thing in the morning.

First thing in the morning is the best time to work on tasks.

The early bird

Waking up early provides you with an advantage in life. Before other people have woken up, you have already made strong progress towards achieving your goals. When it’s time to go to bed, with this method, you’ll fall asleep quickly and easily. Other people often stay up late, watching T.V., or interacting with their smartphones, and end up having a sub par sleep because of it. Sleep is very important. I’ll leave a link to a great book on sleep for you to check out here. It explains how sleep is of the utmost importance for our health and wellness.

Conclusion

Try waking up early each day. By waking up early, you can start to eliminate your insomnia. You will feel less depressed spending more time in the sun each day. Awakening and falling asleep with the sun is a more natural way to spend life. Avoid your smartphone or computer at night and get to bed early. Waking up early is one of the best ways to improve your health and productivity.
