Are you looking for some inspiration to help you rise earlier?
Although there may be no confirmed health benefits associated with early rising, this practice can benefit you in numerous other ways.
Rising early gives you time to move slowly and really appreciate your life, instead of getting up in a rush. This is your own time.
You can do a little light reading or a blissful workout while the rest of the world is asleep. In the morning, you can take the time to focus on yourself and your priorities.
Early rising also allows you to enjoy a healthy breakfast and early means that you’ll actually have time to sit down for breakfast.
Breakfast is an important part of hitting the ground running, as it gives you energy to keep you going and keeps you fueled until lunchtime. It has also been shown that people who eat breakfast tend to be slimmer than those who don’t.
You might even pencil in specific to-do list items for early mornings – little things that you can accomplish more easily when nobody else is around, such as prepping lunches for your family or even catching up on bills.
These are just some of the benefits that rising early can afford you.
If you need more motivation and inspiration, try giving early rising a chance for a week or two and reflect on how you feel.
Waking early in the morning isn’t for everyone, but it may be just what you need to be more effective in everything you do.
