6 Benefits Of Waking Up Early
It was Benjamin Franklin who said, "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." And it looks like good ol' Benny boy was on to something there! Here are the 6 top benefits of getting an early start in the morning.
1. You're Healthier
Getting up late can be bad for your health. According to studies, late risers are more susceptible to diabetes, hypertension, and some types of cancer.
2. You Stay Young Longer
During the deep sleep phase, a hormone is released that keeps us young for longer. Sleeping too long messes up your sleep cycle. The hormone release is interrupted, thus making you age faster.
3. The Early Bird Catches The Worm
Early risers do better in school, especially in foreign language classes and natural science classes. And that's because, at school and work, you are expected to perform well right from the start of the day, which is why early risers are more successful.
4. You're Happier
According to studies, early risers are more optimistic, content, and relaxed. They are less likely to suffer from depression and other mental illnesses.
5. You're Better Rested
Repeatedly hitting the snooze button causes fragmented sleep. Among other things, this leads to exhaustion and drowsiness. So ditch the snooze button and get out of bed!
6. You're Less Stressed
Early risers have more time to plan their day. They're not in a rush, and have time to enjoy a relaxed breakfast. They have more time for family and can kick the day off on a calm note.
