Daily Dose of Living

Get ready to maximise your potential, maximise your living with empress2inspire’s new posts series “Daily Dose of Living”. These series will bring you the best in personal development and productivity every day of the week. Your best life awaits.

In today’s post we will learn the benefits of waking up early. “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” – Ben Franklin, famously. Now, let me first say that if you are a night owl, and that works for you, I think that’s great. There’s no reason to change, especially if you’re happy with it. But if ever you have a change of heart, here’s are some benefits of waking early :

  • Greet the day – Create a morning ritual. Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it.
  • Amazing start – There is no better way to start off your day than to wake early, in my experience.
  • Quietude – The early morning hours are so peaceful, so quiet. You can think, can read, and can breathe.
  • Sunrise – People who wake late miss one of the greatest feats of nature, repeated in full stereo vision each and every day — the rise of the sun.
  • Breakfast – Rise early and you actually have time for breakfast which is one of the most important meals of the day.
  • Exercise – There are other times to exercise besides the early morning, of course, but also liable to be canceled because of other things that come up. Morning exercise is never canceled.
  • Productivity – Mornings, for me at least, are the most productive time of day.
  • Goal Time – Every morning, you should decide what one thing you can do today to move yourself further towards that goal. And then, if possible, do that first thing in the morning.
  • Commute – Commute early, and the traffic is much lighter, and you get to work faster, and thus save yourself more time. 
  • Appointments – Showing up early will impress them. Plus, you get time to prepare.

      Our bodies are designed to produce the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin after dark. The sleep-wake cycle in our body is regulated by our circadian rhythms, our body’s internal clock, which works with the light and darkness around us. When our retina perceives light, it signals the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (our body’s biological master clock) to suppress melatonin production, causing wakefulness. We are naturally attuned to being more responsive and alert during morning hours and sluggish and sleepy at night.

  1. I have always been a morning person. Even in retirement, I am still up early to exercise, read, write, and enjoy that first cup of coffee.

      If you’re a morning person, chances are you already know you’re one. Sure, you’re groggy when you wake up in the morning, but you barely need your alarm clock. And it’s not too hard for you to get up and get going. In fact, it’s your tendency to be up-and-at-em — even if you don’t have anything specific to be doing.

      Morning people are those who rise from sleep fairly easily and are most productive and/or active in the mornings. If you’re a morning person, your brain is most alert in the morning, and you’re generally very good at harnessing this energy and focus to get tasks, work and chores done.

      Because your brain is more alert in the morning, you’ve probably also noticed that being a morning person means it’s harder for you to sleep in, even if you went to bed late or didn’t get a good night’s rest.

      Yup, Research shows that sunsets have many psychological effects that enhance the long-lasting satisfaction of in life and physical benefits and have been proven to relieve stress. So next time you’re having a rough day, drive to your favorite spot and watch your worries fade away. It gives you a reason to go outside.

        Thanks. Am actually blessed to have a golf course behind my building so can walk the pup and enjoy the sunset without driving.
