I am not an early bird by any means. If I wake up before 8 a.m., I'm groggy and relatively unhappy until I thoroughly awaken. It takes me at least an hour and a cup of breakfast tea to open my eyes all the way. Getting up early isn't so bad though. Plenty of us quite enjoy it or do it daily. There are some positives about rising with the birds....I guess.
|Gotta get that cup o' joe|
1. Productivity - If I'm up at 6 a.m., I'm on a roll for the rest of the day. Make breakfast, pack lunch, work. Then I'm motivated to keep going. Why not allow time for a workout or maybe I should call my friend back? I think I have a bank payment to make. Let me clean the bathroom. I have groceries to buy and laundry to do. Well, at least there's time and I'm on a roll. I should try to wiggle in baking some banana bread too.
2. Breakfast - Despite my obvious knowledge that breakfast is the key factor in kickstarting your day, I often forget it. Rising early allows more time to create a delicious meal for myself and give me the opportunity to get hungry. If I wake up later, I'm not hungry until later and by then, I'm at work. A hearty breakfast is the perfect way to start the day and keep me energized.
3. Quiet time - I get time to wake up, rise, and think. What do I want to accomplish today? How can I achieve my goals? Is there anything I forgot to do? Getting up early is inspiring, despite the difficulty I have opening my eyes. Quiet time can help you become a better planner, according to Forbes. Use this time to set goals and organize your thoughts.
