Sci­en­tists have found that the peak of human fatigue occurs at 2 am and 2 pm. But many peo­ple are sure that they feel worst in the morn­ing. Exact­ly at the moment when the alarm rings.

Why is it so hard to wake up

The hard­est thing to wake up on Mon­day morn­ing. This is because on week­ends peo­ple often go to bed and wake up at dif­fer­ent times. The body does not like such “swings”, so the bio­log­i­cal rhythms go astray.

Accord­ing to sci­en­tists, if you go to bed and wake up at the same hour every day, a per­son will only ben­e­fit from this — both in terms of well-being and in terms of health.

At the same time, it is best to wake up in the ear­ly morn­ing hours. What awaits those who dare to this “feat”?

8 Benefits of Waking Up Early

1. Your diet will become healthier

Peo­ple who wake up ear­ly tend to always have break­fast. While the “owls”, who open their eyes only after din­ner, often rush out the door and have a bite to eat on the go.

Anoth­er prob­lem with break­fast is that peo­ple who skip it end up eat­ing more unhealthy foods dur­ing the day and very often overeat at night. Research by Dr. Jörg Huber from Roe­hamp­ton Uni­ver­si­ty in Lon­don, showed that “morn­ing peo­ple” are health­i­er and hap­pi­er than those who wake up lat­er. They also have a low­er body mass index.

2. The reflection in the mirror will be beautiful

2. The reflection in the mirror will be beautiful

After a good night’s sleep, the skin looks healthy, bright and radi­ant in the morn­ing. And a per­son has more time to devote to him­self. There is no stress and has­sle due to a pos­si­ble delay, there is a peace­ful cup of cof­fee, drunk with plea­sure.

Sta­tis­tics show that peo­ple who get up ear­ly go to bed ear­ly. This means that they are less prone to vig­ils deep after mid­night and they are more like­ly to sleep for the 7–9 hours rec­om­mend­ed by sci­en­tists.


Accord­ing to experts mayo Clin­icAde­quate sleep every night strength­ens the immune sys­tem of a per­son, thanks to which he is less like­ly to get sick and feel great.

3. More time to exercise

Peo­ple who exer­cise in the morning—jogging in the park, swim­ming in the pool, or just doing morn­ing exercises—have few­er excus­es to them­selves. They just get up at the appoint­ed time and start prac­tic­ing.

While after a hard day at work, there is a temp­ta­tion to skip a work­out. And some­times it just does­n’t fit into the evening rou­tine.

4. You will become more productive

Many suc­cess­ful peo­ple admit to wak­ing up at 5 am or ear­li­er. And this is the secret of their per­for­mance. They can calm­ly think over plans for the day and imple­ment them dur­ing the day.

A 2008 study found that ear­ly ris­ers do not pro­cras­ti­nate as much as peo­ple who go to bed and there­fore wake up lat­er. Sci­en­tists also note that the human brain is more active in the morn­ing, and there­fore it makes bet­ter deci­sions with a fresh head.

Did you know?

Sci­en­tists have cal­cu­lat­ed that on aver­age, about a third of a person’s life is spent on dreams, but peo­ple also strive to reduce this time.

5. It will be easier to get to work

Anoth­er ben­e­fit of wak­ing up ear­ly is mak­ing it eas­i­er to get to work. In the ear­ly hours, there are not many peo­ple in trans­port, and you can slow­ly choose the best route for your­self.

And you can final­ly get off at a stop ear­li­er and walk a lit­tle to work on foot. This, accord­ing to doc­tors, is very use­ful for main­tain­ing health.

6. Academic performance will please

If the morn­ing awak­en­ing is asso­ci­at­ed with the need to study, then there is a huge plus here. Var­i­ous stud­ies con­duct­ed in the US and Europe have shown that those who get up ear­li­er in the morn­ing have sig­nif­i­cant­ly high­er marks in exams.

And the “morn­ing birds” keep con­sis­tent­ly high scores through­out the year, in which they out­per­form their friends — “night owls”.

For exam­ple, in a 2008 study con­duct­ed in Texas Uni­ver­si­ty, it was found that col­lege stu­dents who iden­ti­fied them­selves as “larks” did bet­ter in school.

On a note!

Accord­ing to sci­en­tists, more than 2 mil­lion chil­dren in the world suf­fer from sleep dis­or­ders.

7. Problems will be solved faster

“Ear­ly birds” are not only opti­mists, but also very ener­getic peo­ple. Such data were pre­sent­ed by a study involv­ing 367 stu­dents.

Author of the study, biol­o­gist Christoph Ran­dler I found that they are more like­ly to be active in any busi­ness, try to antic­i­pate prob­lems, min­i­mize them or solve them. They will­ing­ly take respon­si­bil­i­ty for their lives. And this leads to the fact that they even­tu­al­ly have greater labor pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, high­er salaries and bet­ter achieve­ments in the pro­fes­sion­al field.

8. Life will bring happiness

Research also shows that peo­ple who wake up ear­ly in the morn­ing and those who like to stay in bed for a long time show dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ty traits.

It seems sur­pris­ing, but “ear­ly birds” are more like­ly to show opti­mism, the abil­i­ty to com­pro­mise, con­sci­en­tious­ness and greater sat­is­fac­tion from life. And those who like to spend the night, although they are asso­ci­at­ed with cre­ativ­i­ty, demon­strate more pes­simism, neu­roti­cism and are prone to depres­sion.

For exam­ple, one 2014 study found that peo­ple who stay up late are more like­ly to be over­whelmed with neg­a­tive thoughts.


There is a sci­ence that stud­ies dreams. They call it oneirol­o­gy.

How to start waking up earlier?

All this sounds promis­ing. But how to start wak­ing up ear­li­er if it seems that there is no strength for it? And what if you wake up ear­ly and don’t radi­ate opti­mism?

Experts are sure that a lot depends on the habit. And if you real­ly want to, you can grad­u­al­ly come to the fact that ear­ly awak­en­ings will begin to bring joy.

For this:

  • Set your alarm a few min­utes ear­ly. But start by going to bed ear­li­er. Dur­ing the week, wake up 15 min­utes ear­li­er, then anoth­er 15 min­utes ear­li­er, and so on until the time you want to start wak­ing up.
  • Moti­vate your­self. Wak­ing up ear­ly should­n’t become a chore. Decide for your­self what you will be doing dur­ing this time. It should make you hap­py. You can ded­i­cate it to a morn­ing walk, hob­bies, think­ing about a busi­ness plan, or your dreams. The main thing is that you enjoy this activ­i­ty.
  • Exit the bed­room. If you have already wok­en up ear­ly, get out of bed and leave the bed­room. Remem­ber that if you go to bed again, this is fraught with the appear­ance of a feel­ing of fatigue and weak­ness after inter­mit­tent sleep.
  • Do your­self some favors. Wak­ing up ear­ly is good, of course. But try­ing to achieve them, do not become a tyrant for your­self. Make indul­gences on days when you are sick, you can stay in bed longer, or you are very tired the day before. This is life, every­thing hap­pens.
  • Avoid heavy meals before bed. Eat­ing spicy, fat­ty, and heavy foods just before bed can cause health prob­lems such as heart­burn or indi­ges­tion. With such an anam­ne­sis, it is dif­fi­cult to wake up alert and active, and there­fore watch your diet.
  • Trust your body. Some­times, no mat­ter what a per­son does, he can’t wake up ear­ly — he feels sleepy, tired, over­whelmed, his mood is at zero. Per­haps this per­son needs to sleep longer and wake up lat­er. Don’t try to “break” your­self. The main pur­pose of ear­ly awak­en­ings is to bring hap­pi­ness. If that does­n’t work, it might be worth look­ing else­where.

Be healthy!
