4 reasons you should be waking up early for a healthy lifestyle
“Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”—Benjamin Franklin
All of us have been a late riser at some of the other points in life, and while some have moved on from those days and adapted to a healthy lifestyle that kicks starts by waking up early, others are still stuck in the old cobwebs of sleeping late and waking up late.
Well, if a healthy lifestyle is what you are aiming at, then my friend, this habit is something you should quickly bid adieu to. Don’t worry, I know it will take time, and that’s the reason the following four reasons are going to help you understand why you should be an early riser—
Tips for Healthy Lifestyle
It gets you a head start
Every day is a competition, and it doesn’t necessarily need to be between you and others, but can be with you today and you yesterday. When you wake up early, say as early as 5 am, when more than 80% of those around you are still asleep, you get a head start to stay ahead.
It serves as a fundamental motivation for you, giving you ample time to process your thoughts, and prepare yourselves for the day rather than those who wake up late, losing too much time of the day already to sleeping.
Proper time management
This one is crucial. Time really waits for none, and we often learn it the bitter way. Why take a chance when you can actually keep up by waking early? An early riser gets the liberty to prepare for the day well, be it appointments, studies, or simply activities like sports.
You can prepare yourself a well-sorted timetable for the rest of the day and plan all your activities accordingly.
Late risers don’t get this privilege since they have to rush with their activities, having no time to assimilate and work on their schedule thanks to being on the bed for a little too long.
Proper meal intake
When people wake up late, they tend to miss their breakfasts every other day. And as you already know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, one should never skip it.
An early riser never faces this problem as s/he always gets enough time to do morning chores and other work, followed by having breakfast and proceeding with the rest of the stuff.
A healthy environment
When you wake up early with the sun yet to shine, there’s a beautiful tranquil ambiance that you can enjoy. Also, there’s lesser pollution and noise, making your early morning exercises and jogging sessions extremely peaceful, healthy, and fun.
