Every person wants to become successful in his life. Though hard work is an important factor that contributes to one’s success, knowingly or unknowingly our daily habit also plays a vital role. While thinking of success, the first habit that we should think of is our wake up time in the morning. Many successful entrepreneurs, CEOS and athletes start their day early in the morning when most of the people are tucked up in their bed. Ben Franklin said, “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” It is worth trying to become an early bird from a night owl.
Here are seven reasons why you should listen to you parents and get up early in the morning.
- You get to enjoy the sunrise
Sunrise is one of the most beautiful phenomena of nature that can be enjoyed only when you wake up early in the morning. Nothing can give such a soothing feeling to eyes than watching the midnight blue sky turning to light blue. Meditating in the arms of the rising sun gives you mental peace for a good start to the day.
- Sufficient time for breakfast
Most of the time breakfast is skipped because we are short of time due to getting up late. It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After the 6-7 hrs of night fasting, breakfast serves as the fuel for our body to start for the day. Skipping breakfast will make your hungry stomach eat unhealthy. So next time you complain of not having enough time to have breakfast, try getting up early.
- Time to Exercise
Exercise can be done in the evening also, but nothing can beat the benefits of a workout done in the morning. Starting the day with a workout is an excellent way to boost your day. Sometimes due to last minute changes, we keep rescheduling and postponing our exercise plan. Waking up early could be an easy solution.
- Increased productivity
The positive attitude that is felt by getting up early increases one’s productivity. The wok which we start to do in the morning is completed within much less time. And hence we get extra time to complete the other pending works.
- Adherence to time
Adhering to time gives a good impression to other party in the work place. Waking up early gives more time to prepare for an early appointment and avoid the rush and stress. Rushing up for work and getting late can become a tiring activity and can give a feeling of disappointment.
- Gain time for yourself
When you start your day early, you can reach office early, complete your work early, and have time for yourself and your family. In the maddening rat race getting some time to relax and rejuvenate is always a welcome idea.
- Goal oriented
The extra time that you get in the morning can also be utilized for planning the day and setting the goals for the day. As the morning time is filled with positivity, it would help to plan your day in a positive way and achieve your short and long term goals.
