5 Reasons Why Waking Up Early Is Beneficial

I have never been a morning person until recently.  Last quarter I had 8am classes everyday of the week. I was constantly unorganized and stressed so I made it a personal goal to get up every morning at 6am and go for a run. Now that waking up early is a habit, it has changed my life in so many ways. Here are a few of them.





1. You Will Stress Less & Be On Time.

When you wake up at 6am, you have time to mentally and physically prepare for your day. You have time to have your morning coffee, make breakfast & prep your school stuff accordingly. This leaves you less stressed throughout your day because you are more organized. When you leave the house for your 8am class, life is perfect. You are not in any kind of hurry because you already started your day two hours prior. Sleeping in leads to feeling rushed which typically leads to being late.



2. Breakfast, Breakfast, Breakfast!

Most of us skip breakfast in the morning because we have other things on our minds. You get to eat breakfast and fully enjoy it. 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!



3. Early Morning Exercise Leads To A More Productive Day.

Finding time in our busy lives to exercise is tough. Making it a habit to wake up early and do some sort of exercise, even if it’s a morning walk, gets your blood pumping and your mind right. Studies have shown that exercising before starting your day leads to more productive days. Plus, exercising in the early morning allows you to witness the beautiful Santa Barbara sunrises.



4. You Get Better Sleep.

Waking up early means you will go to bed earlier. Going to bed earlier leads to a better night sleep.



5. You Will Be Happier Overall.

The mornings are extremely peaceful. Early risers are overall happier throughout their day because they have already accomplished so much by the time everyone else is waking up. Starting your day on a positive note leads to more positively throughout the entire day.
