Fun fact, folks: Waking up early is directly related to success. A 2008 Harvard study revealed that morning people are more likely to be fit, optimistic, proactive, sociable, and good at planning. No wonder CEOs, athletes, artists, and business moguls all prefer to rise with the sun.

Now here's a breakdown of the benefits reaped by early risers!


For starters, you get to sit down and have actual breakfast, complete with bacon and eggs, coffee, and a good conversation.

Early


The earlier you get up, the more work you can accomplish in a shorter time span. Because the rest of the world is still in snooze mode, you're subject to fewer distractions in the morning.

Early


Finishing your stuff early will give you some peace of mind for the rest of the day.

Early


Once you make it a habit, time pressure will be a thing of the past. There's nothing worse than starting your day off in a hurry, because it leaves you feeling flustered and beat for the rest of the day.

Early


Starting early means finishing early...which means more time for happy hour!

Early


If you wake up extra early, you can even afford yourself some alone time and get some peace and quiet. No need to think about your boss. No need to worry about the traffic. Heck, no need to put pants on.

Early


Nothing will ever get in the way of you and your exercise. Evening sweat -outs are often subject to cancellations due to a number of factors (overtime, traffic, your bed's calling you already), but morning workouts almost always push through.

Early


You don't have to endure the Manila traffic, and that's saying a lot.

Early


So how do you turn yourself into an early riser? Well, you could...

Put your phone far from your bed, so that you won't be able to rely on the snooze button...

Early


Set something really important to do in the morning, so you have no choice but to get up...

Early


Reward yourself with a hearty breakfast (or anything worth getting up for) every time you wake up on time...

Early


Start slowly by waking up 15-30 minutes earlier than usual and do it gradually until you get to your goal time...

Early


And make it a point to sleep early. At the end of the day, the goal is to get as much rest as possible without waking up at an ungodly hour. Kaya 'yan, bro!
