You know what they say, "the early bird catches the worm."

Blogger Eghosa Aihie has been waking up at 6 in the morning for two years now. Aihie claims that this habit has significant positive effects in his life. He shared his experience on Brightside

Hopefully, the following will motivate us too!

1. Waking up early helps you discover yourself.


A lot people are having hard time focusing on their goals. It's easy to lose track of your goals if you don't consider them on a daily basis. 

It is known that our brain is much more productive in the first half of the day. Use this time slot to gain control over your life and don't let your emotions lead your will.

2. You'll have plenty of time to plan your day ahead.


The earlier you plan your day, the more efficiently you spend it. If you are planning your next day before you go to bed, try changing this habit. You are already tired because you had a long day. Your brain will probably avoid any type of responsibility at night time.

3. Early hours are best for self-improvement activities.


Do you really need to rush into doing things first thing after you've opened your eyes? Many people complain about not finding enough time for sports or leisure activities. However, if you wake up at 6 in the morning, you'll have enough time to do anything you want, starting with exercise. 

Exercising in the morning will boost your endorphins. This way you'll feel more energetic throughout the day!

4. You'll have enough time for a delicious breakfast!


Breakfast is the most important meal of your day. Research shows that people who have a regular breakfast habit are more healthy. Just like cars need fuel to go on, your body needs breakfast to work properly.

Since you wake up early in the morning, you have no excuse to skip breakfast now.

5. This is what successful people are doing!


Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, wakes up at 5:30 in the morning. Jack runs 10k and meditates every morning before he goes to work.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, starts replying to e-mails at around 4:30. 

Sir Richard Branson, owner of the Virgin Group, is also one of the early birds. He wakes up at 5:45 and starts working immediately, according to an interview he gave to Business Insider.

6. You begin the day one step forward.


Research also shows that waking up early increases your creativity. Since you started your day early, you'll also feel better by achieving more than your colleagues.

"I’ve learned to settle the most unpleasant matters before 8 a.m. This habit allows me to live the whole day after that with a high level of energy and the feeling that my duty has been done. The habit of doing the uncomfortable things early in the morning reduces my levels of stress and anxiety."

states Eghosa.

What is more, if you develop this habit, you'll also gain 150 more minutes in your day. And this means 17.5 more hours in a week, more than 70 hours in a month and 35 days in a year... Definitely worth trying!

Choice is yours!
