Waking up in the morning time usually not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’. To start it I’m sure you will have a thousand reasons to not become a morning person. Personally, being a Morning Person for me gives me a lot of benefits. I’ve tried it before and compared it with becoming a night owl, it’s much better if you become a morning person! I tried it for the last 3 semesters of my college, and it did wonders to my focus, grade, and energy! So let me convince you Why You Should be a Morning Person!
Successful people’s secret is Wake Up Early!
Successful people always wake up early and ready to attack the day! It’s their secret key to staying successful. The reason successful people become early risers is that it gives them extra hours to do some creative thinking, fit in a workout, and spend time with family. Here’s a list of successful people! Besides that, most of the successful people use the time for a workout. So they stay healthy both mind and body, and it allows you to have good food because you are working out!
Morning Person is more Proactive
According to the studies of biologist Christoph Randler, early risers are more proactive and they tend to procrastinate less. Wake up earlier makes you have more time to start your day. Those extra times you can use it to do things to boost your mood or some difficult tasks to do first. If you start your day in good and positive energy, it will be a domino effect for the rest of the day.
You might be Happier and better Mental Health
A study found that waking up earlier may make people happier. They speculated that early sunlight exposure might have an effect on people’s moods. Besides that, you will have better mental health! It’s better to have the extra time in the morning since you can practice meditation in the morning and it is way better than at night. Being a night owl is more prone to depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. Every mindfulness camp, they always wake up earlier and have meditation and it proves they have a clearer mind for the day.
You can recharge your Motivation
Every successful person knows that motivation doesn’t last forever and needs to be constantly recharged. That’s why it is important to be a morning person to have the extra time to motivate yourself. You can recharge by looking at inspirational quotes, journaling, or even talk to your Loved Ones. Remind yourself why you are working hard and for who and what the purpose of it. Then you will have a better mood for your day!
I’m not saying become a night owl is bad, it actually depends. Some research states that it depends on genetics! So don’t be sad if you feel more productive as a night owl or morning person. If you want to try to be a morning person, here’s some morning habits that are useful 🙂
