There goes a popular proverb “‘Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” My Mum says that early rising is the secret to a happy life. Though waking up early can be tiring at the beginning. But once we get used to the habit of early rising, we will have more energy to take on the day. Early rising can help us to plan, set goals and make better decisions. It helps us to enjoy a peaceful, distraction-free time where we can remain more focused on what we are doing. Many successful people of the world are early risers. The simple habit can change our lives and give immense health benefits.

Let Us Discuss the Advantages of Developing the Good Habit of Rising Early:

1. Good for Mental and Physical Health – Our body and mind remain fresh in the morning. That’s why our brain can receive things more quickly. Many people say that the early morning is the best time to study. The pleasing morning air can fill our heart with joy. Early risers not only gain in health and spirit but they gain a lot in terms of work efficiency as well. Taking a walk in the morning fresh air can boost our mental and physical health like tonics. Research says that early risers are often more optimistic and are likely to experience more satisfaction in their lives.

2. Healthy Eating Habits – Those who have a habit of waking up late often tends to skip breakfast. Eating breakfast helps to build a healthy eating habit and it reduces the food cravings for consuming unhealthy food for the rest of the day.

3. More Time to Exercise – Exercising and waking up early is a great way to overcome lethargy. It helps us to energise our body and get it ready for the day’s work.

4. Improves the Quality of Sleep – Early rising often helps in the establishment of a proper sleep routine. It becomes easier to develop the habit of waking up early and at the same time every morning. Experts say that following a sleep routine not only improves the quality of our sleep but also helps to set the body’s internal clock which makes it easier for us to sleep and wake up naturally.

So, now I make sure to go to bed early so that I can wake up in the morning. The chirping of birds, the smell, and colour of flowers make me wonder at the beauty of nature. Sometimes I go for a walk with daddy and it feels amazing.
