In recent past, one of my friends asked me about my habit to waking up early in the morning around 6 am and also inquired about benefits about waking up early. An honest admission, I didn’t know the answer at that time. I just knew that I feel good and I can spend my day gracefully if I wake up early and if due to any reason I wake up late then it spoils my day in several ways. But after this incident I tried to dig out psyche behind waking up early in the morning. After digging this further I found that switching from night owl to early riser is a blessing. People who are night owl will surely enjoy comfort and liberty of being so, but believe me that rising early will give you better than staying night owl. Here are the benefits of waking up early in the morning which will motivate to switch to an early riser and enjoy the hidden benefits of spending you day gracefully and more comfortably.
Time Time Time
When you wake up early you will have few extra hours added to your day and believe me these extra hours are more productive and joyful compared to late night extra hours which kills your sleeping time. Disturbed and irregular night’s sleep is cause of several health related complications. Coming back to the point, when you wake up early you can get extra time for several activities which you wish to do but never get time to do it. For example everyone wants to do exercise in morning as early morning is the best time to spend on your body, health and soul. You can go for a walk or jog in nearby park, practice yoga at home or go to the gym. You will have plenty of options to do exercise if you get additional hours in the morning. Today meditation and yoga are very hot trends in United States and around the world because people are realizing enormous benefits of meditation and yoga. Spending 15 to 30 minutes every morning for meditating or doing yoga like suranamaskar (Sun Salutation) will give your body a healthy boost. These activities are well desired by all but we hardly get time to do it from our busy schedule.
Feel Good Factor
Remember the day when you woke up early in the morning and remember the freshness in cool air, the soothing and energetic feeling you get after feeling the nature so closely. Remember the last sunrise you saw with your naked eyes, wasn’t it an amazing feeling? Remember the last time in early morning’s peaceful environments without any pollution, no horns of vehicles passing by, no babies crying or people talking, no television or mobile phones interrupting your peace of mind and should I ask you to remember more? Don’t you feel spending some quality time with your own soul? Don’t you feel it’s a better start of the day rather than waking up with a fear of getting late at work, school or for any other duties?
