10 reasons to wake up earlier and to improve your health and well-being
It is not always easy to get up early in the morning! Still, there are many advantages to set your alarm for dawn. If you need motivation to get there, here are 10 good reasons to get up earlier and thereby improve your health and well-being!
1- Improve your quality of sleep
Getting up earlier and at a fixed time every day is a great idea to help your body clock to adjust to your lifestyle! The positive effects will be felt after a few weeks; you’ll be more rested at sunrise and will find it easier to fall asleep at night.
It is not always easy to find time to get moving, especially if your work schedule is not very flexible. By getting up earlier, you can take 30 minutes or 1 hour for exercise. We’re pretty sure that this time will fill you with energy for the rest of the day!
3- Enjoy the sun
Natural light is good for your health and helps you wake up well-rested! If the temperature permits, sit outside and enjoy a few minutes of happiness while you observe nature awakening-
4- Decrease stress levels
It can be hard to take breaks to take care of yourself, so why not create them? If you get up earlier, you can take the time to prepare for the day ahead. It’s neverpleasant to have to rush around getting ready for work.
5- Do something you love
Do you have a hobby that you enjoy, but never have the time to indulge? Are you a fan of hockey, but are not available to play at night? Start the day by doing something you love! You will see your happiness index soar!
6- Eat a good breakfast
Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but we too often fail to put this theory into practice! It’s a great healthy habit to get into. We challenge you to try!
7- Tend to your relationship
Maintaining a healthy relationship is very important! A few minutes of complicity under the duvet, breakfast one-on-one, a jog together, watching an episode of a television series you like, no matter the activity, being up earlier could maximize the quality time spent with your beloved!
8- Increase productivity
Imagine getting to the office before the avalanche of emails begins. You would have the opportunity to perform certain tasks without being disturbed and have less work to do for the rest of the day. Zen effect guaranteed!
9- Prepare supper
Morning is a good time to get ahead of the evening meal and make sure you eat well! If you own a slow cooker, now is the time to leverage your investment while having more time to relax in the evening!
10- Be more content
According to a British Psychological Society study, early birds are happier and present fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression. This is an excellent reason to revise your alarm clock!
