Early Risers | Why You Should Join The 5AM Club And Make The Most Out Of The Day
Let’s be honest now, most of us never see 5am. We are usually sound asleep, comfy in our beds all snuggled up. Slumbering away for another few hours until our alarm clocks kick in and drop us back to the reality of early mornings. But joining the early risers club actually has more benefits than you think.
We spend an average of 26 years sleeping… A quarter of our lives… Gone.
The problem with sleeping is, is that you are actually missing out on valuable time, time that is more precious thank you think. Think about it, the later you wake up you less time you have in the day. It doesn’t matter who you are, we all have 24 hours in the day. Those 24 hours can be spent, being lazy, sleeping in wondering where the day went or being productive and using it accordingly.
If the average night’s sleep is eight hours (ie one third of a day), one sleeps for one third of one’s life. If you live, say, 75 years, that’s 25 years asleep, or 9,125 days.
Let’s talk about the real benefits of getting up early and joining the early risers club!
Besides waking up, rubbing your eyes thinking I could really do with that extra sleep, you actually do feel healthier in the long run. By waking up earlier we actually structure our days better. Usually what happens is you wake up and try cram in as much as we can in a short amount of time, which ultimately doesn’t work… So getting up early gives you more structure and of course more time.
At 5am who is going to be pestering you to answer calls or get things done? Its the perfect time to clear your head, get yourself ready for the day ahead and get those tasks done that need your utter most attention. Even things like answering emails, once we get to work the time gets limited.
You’ll never be late:
Well its a no brainer but waking up early you’ll never be later. You can take your time to do your hair, choose the proper outfit, back your bag accordingly. Let’s be honest, no one wins when rushing.
You’ll be happier:
Have you ever had it when you sleep in, like really sleep in you are actually more lazy? You actually feel more tired and ultimately get grumpy? Well, studies have shown that actually having those long lie ins actually don’t benefit you at all.
