“Early to bed and early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy and wise”. A saying we grew up with, but a saying that we, unfortunately, don’t pay much attention to! Putting the alarm on snooze and sleeping in sounds like heaven to most us, but it’s anything but for our bodies and overall health.
We know that you probably think it’s crazy to wake up at the crack of dawn, considering the late nights you spend preparing those office presentations or putting the kids to sleep, but what you must know is that there are countless benefits of waking up early, and embracing the sun before it raises high in all its glory!
According to scientific research, people who wake up early, or at sunrise are more active throughout the day, and tend to be in a more positive frame of mind. Apart from this, those who wake up early are able to sustain a healthy breakfast routine and get the maximum nutrients from what they eat.
One of the best benefits of waking up early is that you can squeeze out sufficient time for a rigorous workout routine, which is not always possible at the end of the day. Stepping out in the wee hours of the morning, and getting that first dose of Vitamin D is not only beneficial for our bodies but is great for our overall mood too.
Waking up early is not an easy task to follow religiously but if you start with baby steps, you will definitely achieve your overdue health goals. The initial few days will be a little hard, but gradually your body and mind will not just get used to it but will thank you too.
