I constantly hear people complaining about having to wake up early. And don’t get me wrong, I hate it too, but hopefully, this article will help you look at it differently…
Waking up early instead of at 11 or 12 is actually really great for your health. Yes, even on weekends. Sure, you should sleep in, but not so much that half your day is already over by the time you’ve eaten your breakfast and brushed your teeth.
“The early bird catches the worm,” is what one optimistic person said to me. “The last thing I want early in the morning is a worm,” I replied.
I actually hate (yes, I know that’s a strong word) waking up early. So don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you should wake up at 6 in the morning on a weekend! Around 9 or 9:30 is the perfect time to get your day started. And if you don’t believe me, look it up for yourself. You’ll be overwhelmed by the amount of articles telling you to wake up early.
Benefits of waking up early include that it enhances your productivity, makes you more focused throughout your day (unless of course, you’re running on a 6 hour night of sleep), gives you more time to do your things (even if it involves a Netflix marathon), and more.
Not everyone gets up early. It’s amazing how quiet the world is early in the morning. There are zero distractions, which will allow you to enjoy some peace and quiet, and start your day off right.
So maybe you’ve decided to take my advice and go to sleep around 9:30 so you can wake up early the next day. Maybe not. Either way, you know the facts and you know what you should do.
