I was an early riser. I used to wake up at 5am when I was a high school student. I love to be a early bird, but because of bad sleeping schedule in college, I am not a early bird any more 😄 Now I am trying to be an early bird again! In this post I will write 10 benefits of being an early bird, and I will tell you how I become one 😉
Waking up early sometime can let us see this beautiful view of the day. If you live near ocean, on mountain, or near an open field, sunrise can be clearly seen and it is amazing!
2. Peaceful moment
This is the biggest reason for me to wake up early. I am the type of person who work better in minimum noise. I enjoy the peace I can get in the morning, and it really clear my worries, negative thoughts, and mind.
3. Meal Prep
Cooking and bringing our own lunch is the healthiest thing to do! We can save our money and avoid those processed oily non-fresh food. You will have your homemade fried rice where others have sandwich. 😄
It is related to the one above. If we wake up early, we can have time to cook fancy breakfast and give you a nice Instagram picture 😉 I also like enjoy my breakfast slowly so I need some time in the morning 😉
5. Plan or Goal
I also like writing down something I want to do for the day in the morning. This also help me to track my task and be more productive.
This is another main reason I want to be an early bird again. The hot yoga class I want to join start at 6:30am, and they recommend to arrive 20 minute early to get used to the heat, so I will need to leave home at 5:30am 😄 It is also easier to workout in the morning since we get the most energy in the morning and no excuse to not exercise when you have more time in the morning 😉
7. Skincare & Makeup time ♥
There are a lot of 5 minutes makeup challenge online, but if we can wake up early, why we need to rush ourselves? Using a sheet mask before makeup. Taking our time to do eye makeup. Maybe make a fancy hairstyle too 😉 Waking up early can do so much thing before school and work.
8. Never late/miss
I guess this is the main point of waking up early. We can avoid traffic! We can make the bus! We can get to class/work on time! We will get some time to prepare our bags too! Maybe able to grab a coffee to 😉
How to be an early bird? I am trying to sleep a little earlier and wake up a little earlier. I start with getting bed 30 minutes early and waking up 30 minutes early. After a week, I sleep 30 more minutes early and wake up 30 more minute early, and so on. Next week I will wake up at 6am. After that week, I will wake up at 5:30am. Until I can wake up at 5am. Depending on how many hours you need to sleep, you should know what time you go to bed can ensure your sleeping time 😉
That’s all for my 8 benefits of early risers! I hope you enjoy it and let’s be early bird together 😄 My friend used to call me crazy when I told them I wake up at 5am everyday 😄 I love to be an early bird 😉 How about you? Are you a night owl or an early bird?
