There are many more benefits. I listed these to give you an idea.
Most of us are “professionals” at sleeping late at night and still waking up super early in the morning. Jokes aside, setting a proper bedtime, without compromising on sleep, is vital to feeling fresh and energised the next day. Make sure to get at least 7 hours of sleep. Plan the tasks to work on the night before, to avoid wasting time contemplating what to work on.
Set up a goal that drives you out of bed each morning. Getting out of the comfort of your bed is important. Once you are out, you can make your way up. Goals help you to get out of bed and get started for the day. For example, if exercising in the morning excites you, then make it a habit to exercise first thing in the morning. This way you have successfully left the warmth of your cozy bed. Get moving as soon as possible.
If you wake up with a deep sigh and regretting the choice you made, chances are you are going to slip back into your old habits within a very short period. Embracing the pain of waking up early will allow you to start your day positively. Pain is part of the process. It will take you some time to get adjusted, just hang in there and it will surely be worth it.
Let in natural light as much as possible. Get some fresh air or sit by a window, get a dose of Vitamin D. If you enjoy drinking coffee, then make a cup and savour it while getting a healthy dose of Vitamin D.
Try limiting the number of screens in the bedroom. Eliminating all of them from our day is almost impossible in this technology-driven age. Instead of reaching for your phone the first thing in the morning, try journaling for a few minutes in the morning. List out the things you are grateful for or the things you wish to accomplish that day or anything that comes across your mind. You could also write about the unicorn that appeared in your dream last night.
This sounds contradictory to the point before, but if you think of it, you can use technology to beat technology.
Sometimes, we wake up feeling off even after plenty of sleep. That is because our REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycle has been disrupted. This is the stage where we dream and get the deepest sleep. We are usually in deep sleep for 70–90 minutes. So, it is best to wake up at the beginning of a REM cycle as we are least in deep sleep at this point.
Attempt to maintain a consistent bedtime and wake up time. It’s alright to fail. Don’t give up and keep on trying. Remember that you are only human, and it takes some time for our body to get adjusted to change.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
