Why Being a Morning Person is Good for You

Are you one of those people who can’t sleep early at night? Have a hard time waking up in the morning? I totally get it. Getting up in the morning seems to be the hardest task anyone could have after a sleepless night. Whether it’s a conscious choice to stay awake until 3 AM or the restless tossing and turning in bed—these are just all too familiar to most of us.

I know that for a lot of people, sleeping is a luxury considering the busy lives they have surrounding work, school, or responsibilities at home. However, for a lot of people, particularly young adults, the cycle of ending and starting their day late is simply a habitual routine that we cannot shake off. There is a term for people who do this, they are referred to as “night owls”, which seems redundant, but I guess it works for the emphasis.

Break the Cycle: Be a morning person

What's the Difference Between Running and Jogging?

There are a lot of studies concerning the unhealthy implications of being a night owl. For example, it weakens your immune system which makes your physical state vulnerable to diseases. Sleep deprivation is one of the main causes for a lot of illnesses, and not only that, lack of sleep also negatively affects your mental health. If you’re staying up late because you can’t put your phone down, I’m telling you now, TikTok and Netflix are not worth the overall deterioration of your physical and mental well-being.
Of course, I’m not saying that it’s easy to be a morning person, but it’s definitely worth trying to be one. So, let’s break down some practices that might help you to start your day early.
Avoid caffeine. I know, ugh, that sucks. But it’s one of the most effective way to ensure that you can sleep early, therefore allowing you to wake up before the sun is more cancerous.
Have a regular sleep routine. It’s important that you set a specific time for bed in order for your body to get used to the changes. Seems like too much effort, but once it becomes a routine to sleep early and for preferably 7-9 hours, then it’ll be easier by then, I promise.
Try working out. Yep. Sorry. But morning workouts are beneficial for you. Not only will it wake you up, but it will also help in improving your physical and mental health! Once you start getting used to the burns, you’ll realize how good it feels to be more active, especially in the morning.

Start your day right!

Being a morning person is good for you

Being a morning person means you can start your day early, which may make you feel like you have more time to accomplish more things. And doesn’t it feel great to have more time to yourself? You might even have the time to finally do the things that you’ve been planning to do such as reading or do some early walks. Increased productivity- that’s one of the main advantages of being an early riser.
