Most people see waking up early as punishment or suffering. But research have shown over the past years that waking up early has a lot of benefits. It is a popular knowledge that wealthy people go to sleep early and wake up very early in the morning so that they can be able to set the tone for the new day.
Five reasons millionaires wake up early
1. To Set a Proper Tone For The Day
During the early waking moments of the morning, you can be fully alert and focused due to the brain chemistry at that time. You won’t be overthinking and can naturally do the things you need to get off to as great start. You are able to absorb more information when you wake, so give yourself the time to not be distracted and focus on the things that really matter for the day rather than getting up late and rushing through your schedule before you even begin.
2. To have sex
Most millionaires a very busy people. They could work all through the day and get very tired at night and go to bed immediately they get to their homes without having the energy for sex at that moment.
After a little rest, they wake up to have that early morning sex which will be very beneficial to them and their partners during the day. There are even couples who leave sex aside to talk about their lives, finances, kids, their list of homes and possible plans for the weekend.
3. To Meditate
Meditation could be in the form of prayer to the creator or reflecting on yesterday’s activity and making new plans for the new day. Making plans early in day or possibly creating an itinerary makes ones day go as planned.
When you get up early you will have more time to get things done and also a quiet period before anyone else rises which will help you focus on getting things done so you do not end up working on many things at the same time. Find your best ideas first thing in the morning and find discipline to allow you to do anything.
4. To Exercise
They is a popular saying that a “healthy man is a wealthy man” . Millionaires wake up early to do some form of exercising before starting the day’s activity. Some of them that are less busy take long walk very early in the morning.
It is true that many of them have the gym installed in their homes, but if it is not in your case you can go for a run or even buy some dumbbells to exercise without leaving your home.
Millionaires also take out time on the lawn or golf club in the evenings when they have finished the activities and appointments lined up for the day.
5. To have a little family time
Due to their tight schedule, many millionaires barely spend time with their families because they are always going from one appointment to another meeting. Waking up early is the only way they get to spend little time with their children and other members of their household.
These successful people use their mornings to either read stories to their children or cook a great breakfast together. They also enjoy a family devotion together as this creates an opportunity to share and listen to the different issues a family member might be experiencing.
