7 Reasons You Should be Getting up Early

Hey cupcakes! As someone who has never liked to stay up late, I have always tended to go to bed before midnight and wake up around 8 or 9. However, this summer I read the book Rise and Grind by Daymond John (yes, the guy from Shark Tank!), and it inspired me to start getting up early to seize the day. This summer, I woke up at 6 AM (or earlier) each day, and I wanted to share with you all the benefits that I have seen from doing this. :)

1. Keeps you on a schedule - I classify myself as a morning person, but there are plenty of "non-morning" people who get up early each day... SO, it is definitely possible for all types of people! Getting up early allows you to stay on track of your schedule, which means you will never be late to any events that you have planned for the day.

2. Makes you more motivated - Getting up early makes you feel like you accomplished something! Because you are up, you are more likely to keep that motivation alive throughout the day.

3. Starts your productivity right away - Because you are up early, there is extra time in the day for you to be productive! I have found that I am even most productive during the morning hours when my brain is working at its best. :)

4. Allows you to have some quiet time - The mornings are quiet because a lot of people are sleeping, which allows you to catch up on some "me time".

5. No traffic - An early morning means no traffic on the roads, in stores, for appointments, etc. Leverage this!

6. Extra time for things you didn't have time for before - For me, this was exercise! I would be too lazy or exhausted from my busy days at night, so now I have the opportunity to start my day with some exercise to keep my body healthy.

7. Gorgeous views - Even if you aren't up to see the sunrise, there are some gorgeous views in the morning!!!! Whether it be clouds, morning fog, etc. it is definitely worth it to check out Mother Nature when you get up early. :)
