Is waking up early good for you?

You have certainly heard the age-old saying “The Early Bird Catches The Worm”. A saying taught in schools to commend the benefits of going to bed and waking up early. Some people may argue that they’re not “natural” early birds, but rather more comfortable as a night owl. While they may certainly tend to focus better at night, it would most probably be due to their brain’s circadian rhythm – a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep–wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours-.
The circadian rhythm is the proper term for our natural sleeping and waking cycle that the brain adjusts to, varying between highs and lows in alertness throughout the day. If your circadian rhythm is adjusted to certain times in a day, such as going to sleep and waking up early, it can be highly effective in you accomplishing your goals much quicker. Waking up early has been shown to boost your productivity, focus, and overall performance throughout the day. Here are some reasons why an early waking time is good for you:
1. Your cognitive activity peaks are more aligned with the working day.

2. Fewer distractions in the morning time help get work done.

3. There’s a correlation between early waking times and success.

4. Biologically, we are NOT nocturnal by nature.
“active during the night & sleeping during the day”.

5. Helps in getting a healthy breakfast, every day.

6. A regular sleep cycle aids in getting proper rest.

7. Planning your day becomes much easier.
