Let’s be honest. For most of us it is really difficult to get up early in the morning especially when it’s still dark outside. But “If you win the morning, you win the day.” According to research, it is a proven fact that getting enough sleep and waking up early helps the body and mind get enough relaxation and rest.It is also very important in order to maintain the overall health of the body. Here are a few benefits of waking up early.More time for yourself
If you live with other people — little ones or adults — getting up early could give you some much-needed (and desperately wanted) time for yourself. More time to sip a coffee slowly while flipping through the paper or just enjoying the silence can help prepare you to face a hectic day feeling a little more chill. According to science the silent moments are actually highly beneficial for the brain and body; they help increasing the oxygen levels in the brain, reduce blood pressure, lessen migraines, and boost mental health.
Enough time for breakfast
Usually when people tend to wake up late, they grab a coffe with lots of sugar and rush to work. Breakfast is rightly considered the most important meal of the day. It helps improve the basal metabolism to burn calories, provides sufficient energy for the day, lowers bad cholesterol, reduces the risk of diabetes and heart diseases, limits the chance of becoming overweight.
More time to exercise
If working out is important to you, but you often struggle to find the time, getting up early could be the ticket. Getting your exercise first thing in the morning counters the temptation to skip workouts because of job or social commitments later in the day. Early exercise also initiates a surge of those feel-good endorphins that can improve your mood, lower stress and anxiety, and increase energy levels.
More time to get things done
Ever wish you had more hours in a day to get things done? Your wish will be granted if you set your alarm half an hour or an hour earlier than usual.
You don’t have to fill every second to get more, more and more done, of course. But if you need a little extra time, getting up early gives you a distraction-free chance to take care of things you might not otherwise be able to do.
Waking up early provides more energy
By gathering good night’s sleep and waking up early provides more energy. It also helps in some of the body’s natural maintenance functions: increased blood supply in muscles, tissue repairs, bone repair, lowered blood pressure and overall relaxation of the body.
Least but not last: better sleep
Many researches suggests that people who wake up early tend to go to bed earlier and enjoy longer, better quality sleep. Getting enough sleep comes with plenty of benefits: improved mood, better concentration, lower chance of obesity and other chronic diseases.
So let’s try to go to bed early on a mattress made of natural and breathable materials for a good quality sleep.
