Studies have found that getting up a little earlier can support mood and productivity.
Harvard biologist Christoph Randler published a 2010 study that found early risers to be more productive. They were more likely to identify with statements such as “I establish long-range goals for myself” and “I feel in charge of making things happen.”
There are many benefits to taking advantage of those fleeting morning hours. The morning tends to be quiet and free of most of the distractions that fill up our days, giving us more of a chance to focus and get real work done.
When you first begin embracing your mornings you may feel grumpy and groggy, but as you get used to your new routine you will find that you will be more alert and ready to work. When your brain first wakes up it’s practically supercharged from sleep, and at its most efficient point of the day. You can think of your brain almost like a wind-up toy, after its wound up it’ll start slowing down, so take advantage of the energy while you have it!
