I loved to sleep in, ofcourse all of us love to stay in that cozy blanket of ours. Sleeping is one of life’s greatest pleasures. But sleeping a lot makes you more likely to have a disturbed night’s sleep, negative thoughts during the day and in some cases it even leads to depression.

For most of us, there is nothing as good as laying in bed and to wake up early only when you really have to. But little do we know, there are more benefits of waking up early than those of waking up late.

It is a very common mindset amongst youngsters nowadays that staying up till late, being a night person is the way of  life. If you belong to this group of individuals, here is why you should stop doing this and start to wake up early. Taking this small step to wake up early might surely bring in a big change in your life.

  • YOU WILL ACTUALLY GIVE YOUR BODY TIME TO WAKE UP BEFORE STARTING YOUR DAY!

The First Step to Success? Getting Enough Sleep | by Lio Mangubat | Medium

As it has been said above, your body needs its time to perform best. In other words, the lifestyle is not considered to be healthy in which you put your bodily functions in a state of hurry. Studies prove that sleep inertia – time between sleep induced brain fog and complete wakefulness can last anywhere in between 2-4 hours. 

For example – If you are waking up at 8:30 a.m. and reporting to work at 9 a.m., chances are high that your body is still not in the state where it can deliver its best work.

Thus getting up early gives your body the time essential to reach peak wakefulness naturally. And you will not have to depend on any supplement for the same.

This is applicable only in case of females. A research published in the Journal Of Psychiatric Research shows that women who wake up early are less prone to develop mental health problems like depression, anxiety and other problems in comparison to those who sleep at later hours in the night. 

Scientific data backing up articles makes it all the more interesting just as in case of this one. It makes sense that a good sleep is beneficial for physical well being, but having a sound sleep at the right time is even more important for physical as well as mental well being. All of us have experienced crankiness when hungry and when exhausted. It leads to several unwanted problems in life. Thus, sleeping early in order to wake up early has a lot more benefits than the other way round.

A study carried out in 2014 has stated those who wake up early have lesser negative thoughts as compared to those who sleep late and wake up late. All of us must have noticed at some point or the other that the night time is the peak time for deep conversations which eventually turn out to be sad. Not just that, it is human tendency to overthink when left alone. All of this can be avoided if slept early. Thus, it will be easier to stay upbeat if you wake up early.

At the end of the day, positivity is a state of mind. And waking up early can be a factor in achieving it.

In a study that Christoph Randler conducted, he took into consideration 367 university students and realised that morning people were in a better place. In terms of business success, morning people have always been in the front. People who wake up early are more proactive which results in better performance and greater success. It is all interlinked. This, in my opinion is the best benefit of waking up early.

Researches have shown that those who wake up early have a better sleep quality than those who stay up till late hours in the night. Those who stay up till late are more likely to develop multiple sleep disorders including other diseases like hair fall, anxiety, etc. Your health depends on your sleep quality, your sleep quality depends on your sleep timings and thus, it all goes hand in hand.

All the benefits mentioned above are scientifically proven. Yes there are some advantages of being a night owl. But, the advantages of being an early bird are more than those of being a night owl.
