Note: This is a guest post from Amber Smith of How to Get Up Early
A lot of people find it difficult to wake up early in the morning, and indeed it takes much effort to become an early riser when you are used to be a night owl. When it comes to waking up early, it turns out to be very rewarding. These five reasons to get up early in the morning can give you needed motivation to become an early riser.
1. Health improvement
First of all, early rising is a fundamental part of healthy living. Human body was designed to function in harmony with nature. We are supposed to get up when the sun rises and go to sleep when the sun goes down. But how often we forget about that and stay up all night or sleep until noon. All these are bad habits that affect our health on a daily basis. We should remember about the Mother Nature’s original plan and wake up early.
Of course, it is not easy to make drastic changes in your sleep schedule, and it can be stressful too. So, you should start waking up a little earlier every day. Making it a routine and never sleeping in will help you succeed. This way you will be able to build a strong habit of getting up early.
2. Time management
Start getting up early every day and soon you will notice that you have turned into a totally different person, more confident and productive. Along with the right morning routine, early rising will pay you back with an energy boost for the rest of the day. Get out of bed as soon as the alarm rings. Avoid the snooze button, now it is your worst enemy. Always have time to take a contrast shower, if for some reason you are being late, make sure to at least wash up alternating warm and cold water. Have your morning coffee and head to work. Now you are ready for new achievements.
3. Dreams come true
Everyone has something he always wanted to do but never had time for. By waking up early you can find a few hours of free time to fulfill your dreams. You can start learning foreign languages, writing your own blog, or practicing your hobby from high school that you never had time for. Remember how fun and joyful it can be to do something for yourself.
4. Live today
Now think of the things that you need to do but you set aside until the last moment. These things can also be done during the morning hours. Put on a few extra pounds and plan to join the gym tomorrow? But how often does tomorrow turn into never? Spend your morning working out and soon you will be back in shape. If you don’t like the idea of joining the gym, find something you would like more. Get a dog and walk him out every morning. Walking in fresh air is very good for your health too.
If you have kids and never have time for cleaning, spend your morning hours on that while the kids are still asleep. Don’t set aside these routine things, do them today and you will have less to worry about.
5. Everything counts
Think of every single thing you get out of waking up early even if it’s a little one. Do you like to drive to work avoiding morning traffic? Or maybe you enjoy watching the sunrise? The best morning coffee in a city can be a real reward for coffee lovers. There are so many great things around us. Just wake up early not to miss them!
