“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man #healthy, #wealthy, and #wise” - Ben Franklin
Beating the sun means waking up from bed before the sun rises. This can be done by waking up at 5:00am every day. While I do believe there are many benefits to waking up this early, they aren't really specific health benefits or anything proven by hardcore science. Regardless, I do believe waking up early is a very good habit to develop and here's why.
#Headstart your day
The definition of a headstart is "an advantage granted or achieved at the beginning of a race, a chase, or a competition. Ex: "a 10-minute head start." By waking up early you are giving yourself a head start, you have hours more to yourself to get whatever you want to be done finished. If you have kids or are living with someone else, this means peace and quiet for you to do your stuff first. This can be finishing your #morning ritual in #peace, reading your favorite book, getting some #work done for your job/yourself, etc.
Grinding out a #workout!
There is no better time to get a workout over with than in the morning. Nothing can pop up and stop you from going and it will give you a boost for the whole day. In my personal #experience, when I've completed a light-medium intensity workout in the morning I feel better the whole day. And if you don't already work out, you should take this opportunity of waking up early to do exactly that.
