5 reasons to wake up early
A Life / / December 19, 2019
Most useful for sleep is considered to span the entire length of two hours: from 22:00 to 24:00. If you fall asleep until 10 pm and not wake up until 12 at night, you'll have no problems to wake up at 5 am. Author, inveterate night owl, experienced it myself, stuck to this regime and at the same time felt fine.
During the week, during which our family has adapted to Kyiv time after two months of living "in the future" (the difference with Kiev is +5 hours), waking up at 5 am and going to bed at 10 pm maximum, I managed more than a month "night" life.
Now our family is back to the usual mode, but I seriously thought about again to wake up early. And there is much more than five reasons. Just the five most basic fit.
1. Improved health
As mentioned above, in the period from 22:00 to 24:00 the body gets the most magical dream, that allows him to fully relax and upgrade. If you are accustomed to go to bed after midnight, you can not get a good rest, even if you sleep 10:00 instead of the standard 7-8. The number of hours may vary depending on the physiological characteristics, but the right time, you still lost.
The abrupt transition to early ups will not do you good if you are used to wake up until 10am. Therefore it is better not to hurry and try to get up every morning for 10-15 minutes before. Gradually, you will enter into a new rhythm.
2. time management
Waking up early, you have time to do much more. Firstly, you can safely take a shower while everyone else slept, and there is no queue for the bathroom. You become much more focused, you will not hurry to consider the day ahead with a cup of coffee and go to work in a state of full combat readiness.
The main thing - to completely eliminate the use Snooze button on the alarm clock.
3. Fulfillment of desires
Everyone has what he likes to do, but that are constantly running out of time. Morning - the perfect time for such cases. For example, read a book or go to yoga: in many schools begin classes early enough so that after you will get to work on time. And if you dare go for a runThen you will have enough time trying to take a shower and a leisurely breakfast.
And you can start painting, blogging, knitting, collecting models and so on. The morning hours are suitable for the hobby is not worse than the evening, and sometimes even better, especially if you have kids.
4. You do not put off until tomorrow
Besides pleasant affairs, we each have responsibilities at home, which is not terribly want to perform in the evening after work. Morning is not always want to spend on household chores, but sometimes it's better to deal with them early.
Just think how many times you tell yourself that you will do it tomorrow, "tomorrow" never occurred?
5. all considered
Transitioning to the new regime of the day, as impart any other useful habit, It is difficult, and in some it takes some encouragement. In this case, the promotion should also be useful (and not the extra hours in bed on Sunday morning!). For example, you can keep a diary of their morning's ups and record everything, have time to do in the morning and throughout the day as a whole. And morning Affairs should take your profile in order to then be able to assess how much you have done thanks to an early rise.
Re-read the records at the end of each week (or at the end of each day), and you get great pleasure from the knowledge that is now Not only have time to do their job, but also to do what you really like and which had earlier hands did not reach due to lack of time.
Waking up early, you have time to do much more than your typical day. You become more focused, and the morning is enough energy for the whole day. In the evening, you do not feel squeezed like a lemon: you just want to sleep and not to disconnect and forget. In the morning you have time to do things that previously simply did not fit into your schedule.
