Being an Early Riser And Why Its Beneficial


Quote of the day: 
Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death. -Arthur Schopenhauer



Our feet placed on the ground on earth becomes heavier with each passing day. It is said that there is nothing new under the sun. Today's new fad in time becomes trapped in the old walkways of the past. And as we walk -a once beautiful thing that we used to do so effortlessly which then turns into hardship, a burden carried on weakened shoulders. Time is relative or constant whichever way one chooses to view it. A perpetual tunnel without end and devoid of sentiment. Get too attached to it, it surprises you, ignore it and it leaves you in the dust. When the sun comes up it does so without self consciousness. It's presence is always a constant, even behind intimidating clouds. Some believe waking up before the sun places one in tune with its core rhythm. Such that when it does eventually appear on the horizon, all things will work in perfect symphony to perfect one's day and dreams. The whispers of approval from the wind would seem to support this thought.

For the duration of the coming week I shall practice getting up before the sun, just like old times. And just because everything is quieter at that period. No car honks, general noise, less traffic on the roads, less everything basically. More enhanced thoughts, more reserved poise, more writing to get done hopefully. Of course, this is not to say that there exists a lack of creativity during the day, that is far from it. Its just being in that space where time seems frozen, and where all things seem less magnified than my thoughts.

So here are a few thoughts on why being an early riser works.

It's a win-win situation. You not only get to get up early but also have the chance to plot your day, set goals and just organize your day in general. Where are you going to be, what are you going to wear, what's for breakfast? With all that out of the way, you can get around to meditating, and also reading.

You Become Alert. There's just something about being awake in the early rounds of the morning, with a greater part of the populace asleep, it can be exciting, to brood and think clearly, to allow the silence around wrap itself close to your beating heart and mind. This same alertness gets spread over the day and its a positive feeling.

Become More Proactive. You become better at managing time and situations, while having loads of energy to go about achieving things and solving problems. With a good night's sleep, you wake up refreshed and enthusiastic about the new day upon you.

Research Says Yes to Waking Early. Several research work carried out in the past all seemingly point to the fact that early risers tend to be more successful in the business world, and are great at being creative and anticipating problems.

In conclusion, everyone is not cut out the same. Some people are early risers and some are not. The important thing is to find the perfect time to negotiate one's quite time.


Peace. Love. Light*

  1. I'm definitely an early riser. My wife isn't, she's a night owl. This can sometimes cause clashes.

  2. Hello, great post. I have always been an early riser. But, I can not say I am creative, I wish I had that trait. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  3. An early riser, now, though once upon a time I was a night owl. Love the quiet stillness of dawn. The bird song. The soft light as the earth leans into the sun and a new day begins. It is inspiring to me, and leads to a more positive outlook. If I sleep in, I feel like I've missed half the day! Nice post!

  5. I am always awake before sunrise, while I seem to wake up as soon as it gets light. My apartment faces east so I get to see some wonderful sunrises day for day. Valerie

  6. Hi Blogoratti - it's certainly easier to get up early at this time of year ... I must change my habits though and make more productive use of my time ..

    Good prompts for us to get that habit before the darkening days start coming in again ... cheers Hilary

  7. Glad to hear getting up early is a good thing. It doesn't feel it when I get up though. Ha-ha.

  10. When I was working, I had to rise early. Now that I'm retired, the only time I rise early is to play golf! :)

  11. I've been an early riser due to my job. During the spring and summer the birds assist in waking me up, if you know what I mean.

  12. Good to know. I usually feel best when I get up between 7:00 and 7:30 (which for some isn't that early).

  13. An interesting read ...
    I do think we all have our own body clock, and perhaps it is best to follow it, if we can of course, because un-doubt-ably there are always outside influences that must be taken into account.

    Hope the week goes well for you.

    All the best Jan

  16. I also enjoy the early morning hours and unfortunately some of the later evening ones as well. However, in recent weeks, my goal is to get to sleep by 11 pm at the latest and often even as early as 10 pm. I never sleep-in even on weekends as morning is so fleeting and peaceful.

  17. What a relevant post to me right now. I always used to sleep as late as possible often until midday but this year I'm the opposite because of my sports routine. I get up early every day now for either work or sports. Three days a week I get up at 5am for sport before work. It feels like an achievement which I love

  18. What a good writer you are! Long ago I read another writer, David Grayson, discussing Schopenhauer and his early rising. If I remember correctly, he said something about him skimming the cream from the day by rising early.

    I used to do that very thing, wish I still could, envy those who can, but as I've grown older my sleep comes in segments that I have to put together to make up a night's sleep.

    But I believe wholeheartedly the points you make here.

  19. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531
