8. You can set a positive tone for the day.
Waking up earlier may mean you sleep less, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll feel more tired or pessimistic. On the contrary, those who wake up early tend to feel more energized and optimistic throughout their day. Waking up early gives you an opportunity to take charge of your day from the beginning and set a positive tone for everything that follows. Laura Vanderkam, time-management expert and author of What The Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, explains “waking up earlier allows you to start the day with a victory and set the tone for a happier and more productive day.”
