10 reasons to always wake up early
Apart from getting to work or business place early, waking up early does have some other healthy perks.
More time for yourself
If you live with other humans little ones or adults getting up early could give you some much-needed time for yourself.
Just enjoying the silence can help prepare you to face a hectic day feeling a little more chill.
More time to exercise
If working out is important to you, but you often struggle to find the time, getting up early could be the ticket.
Exercise initiates a surge of those feel-good endorphins that can improve your mood, lower stress and anxiety, and increase energy levels.
Less time in traffic
Getting up and out of the house early can help you beat the usual traffic, which is pretty much a universal plus.
Less traffic doesn’t just save you time and money. It can also help protect your health and well-being.
Research suggests that people who wake up early tend to go to bed earlier and enjoy longer, better quality sleep.
Getting enough sleep comes with plenty of benefits:
- improved mood
- better concentration
- lower chance of obesity and other chronic diseases
If you’re going to bed earlier and getting better quality sleep, it’s not a huge leap to imagine you’ll wake up feeling more rested and refreshed for the day ahead.
Rough nights can show on your skin in fine lines, wrinkles, paleness, and swollen or droopy eyelids. Sleep deprivation can also contribute to acne.
Good sleep helps keep your skin healthy. During sleep, your skin cells regenerate, while increased blood flow and collagen help repair environmental and UV damage.
Fewer dark circles
As long as you pair getting up early with an earlier bedtime so you’re not sacrificing sleep, you can say bye to dark circles.
More time for breakfast
Waking up earlier in the morning gives you extra time to make and enjoy a filling breakfast, instead of grabbing a quick coffee and donut on the go.
Starting the day with a nutritious meal can leave you feeling full longer, with more energy for the day ahead.
Your brain doesn’t wake up the second you do, which is why we tend to feel groggy and disoriented when we first get up.
Waking up earlier gives you time to fully wake up so you’re more focused.
