5 Benefits of Waking Up Early

Before I became an early riser, I used to always feel like the day was getting away from me. I would only have just enough time to do exactly what I needed to do in that moment. I felt like I had no time to do anything and no time for myself.

One day I decided that I was going to take control of my day. I was going to create a morning routine that would allow me to not feel rushed, provide enough time to do self-improvement activities, and simply enjoy my time.

Here are some things I love about being an early riser.

1. Quiet & alone time.

There is just something about the quiet and stillness of the mornings that I love. It’s still dark outside, everyone is asleep, and I can just be alone. Because I’m not interacting with anyone in the morning, I am quietly reflecting and listening to my thoughts.

2. Better mental health.

It’s better for my mental health because I am not stressing about being rushed or not having enough time to complete a task. Also, I have time to engage in activities that promote good mental health like journaling, meditating, and working out.

3. More productive.

I believe that I’m able to be more productive because I have time to visualize my day. I’m more intentional about how I organize how to spend my time.

4. Self-care time.

I wake up early enough to make time for self-care activities such as meditating, making a delicious, soul-serving breakfast, reading something inspiring to encourage positive thinking.

5. Accomplish goals.

I’m more organized and intentional about how I spend my time and I’m able to make time for goals. Also, in the mornings I have time to reflect and evaluate where I am with my goals in case I need to scale back and revise my action plan.
