While working for 10-15 hours a day and long commute to work; our body and mind do not get the kind of rest and peace that is required to function at an optimum level. Although there are other ways to rest like a home staycation; the benefits of waking up early in the morning seems to outweigh most others.

Let’s discuss the benefits of waking up early.

1) Better Organising Skills

Early morning hours are known to be the most productive time of the day as you get undisturbed time for yourself. You can accomplish any task faster when you are not distracted.

This peaceful and quite time can be used to plan your day ahead; allocating a certain time frame for each task.

2) Chance To Eat Your Breakfast

Waking up early gives you enough time to prepare healthy breakfast for you and your family. If you happen to wake up late; chances are you’ll be late for everything else. When you are running late, you often tend to pick up and eat fast food items which can be eaten on the go like doughnut or muffin or you may skip the breakfast altogether if it’s getting very late.

3) Workout Regularly

Exercising in the morning is the best as it gives the body an adrenaline boost.  When the important task of working out is over in the morning itself; you will be working out very regularly. As there are few chances of missing it due to other important task.

If you work out in the evenings; chances are you are likely to miss out more frequently due to work, get-togethers with friends or just plain exhaustion.

4) Get To Beat Peak Traffic

By waking up early; you can leave home early and beat the peak traffic hours. You won’t waste time being stuck in traffic endlessly. This also keeps you in a better mood as road rage is completely avoided.

5) Experience Good Quality Sleep

When you wake up early, your body feels tired early, leading to quality sleep as soon as you go to bed. You get used to the natural sleep cycle making you early to bed and early to rise.

6) Ability to Focus

Waking up early helps you to psyche up yourself and be able to really focus. This willpower declines as the day wears out so it’s good to take advantage of it when it is still at its peak.

Listening to some inspirational audios or watching an inspirational video gives you the right kick for starting your day.


Many people claim how they are not morning people but the benefits of waking up early are paramount. We are naturally attuned to being more responsive and alert during morning hours and sluggish and sleepy at night. Decide to retire to bed early and wake up early and reap health benefits.
