1. You will feel more proactive and determined

This goes for the early risers. Several successful people, including CEOs, have embraced the “5 AM Club,” a concept that Robin Sharma pioneered in his book of the same name. The book says that "winning starts from the beginning" and that the early hours of the day are valuable. Sharma even says that if you own your tomorrow, you will be in control of your life.

According to a German study, people who have a habit of getting up early and heading out in the morning tend to have more perseverance, cooperation and are eager for new experiences.

2. You will be more alert and less anxious

Being less anxious has a lot to do with your sleeping habits, which is what this study found. What's even more interesting is related to early risers. Again, getting up early has the benefits of being more alert and improving the health of your body and mind.

Another study reported that early risers are more likely to be successful in the workplace and complete tasks quickly.

3. You'll be less than procrastinating

Did you use to hit the snooze button when the alarm goes off in the morning? There is less chance of doing this if you wake up early and become a morning person. Science says you will have fewer procrastination habits if you adopt better morning habits. This is another reason why you should wake up in time to see the sunrise!

4. You will be less at risk of having negative thoughts

Lack of time to sleep is correlated with negative thinking; well, that's what the researchers tell us. Sleep disorders also negatively affect mental health, as people may be more likely to develop depression. By setting your sleep and wake periods, you may be able to improve your chances for a healthier mind and positive emotions.

5. You will be more satisfied with your life

Having a strict time to go to bed and wake up makes people more satisfied. Here's what a survey of 1,033 people said. Following a regular wake-up routine resulted in a 13% increase in people's personal life satisfaction, an 18% increase in their financial situation, and an astonishing 21% increase in work-life balance.

6. You will feel more energetic

There are people who have tried to get up at the same time every day, and the results are very interesting. Personal Trainer and Nurse Cedar tells us what happened after she stopped getting up at 7 a.m. every day, even on weekends.

"While I used to look in the mirror wanting to exchange lives with my cat for the day, now I was ready to move on. I was awake and excited to deal with the day."

On top of that, she mentioned that she exercises, sleeps better, has predictable eating patterns, and even wakes up before the alarm goes off.

7. Your digestion will be better

We have a circadian cycle, also known as a natural internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Connected to this, we have an internal clock that works accordingly. After these times when we get up at the same time, as well as go to bed and eat regularly, our digestive system is more regular in its functioning and keeps our intestines, stomach and metabolism in order.

8. Your immunity will be stronger

Sleep plays an important role in immunity. It is essential for the brain and general health, and it also depends on the daily cycle, as well as digestion. Our immune system can make us sleep right when we wake up. Having a regular wake-up time can help your immune system, as it will also keep your metabolism well regulated.
