It’s important to establish a good sleep routine in order to improve your quality of sleep since this will also set your body’s “internal clock.” You will be able to easier sleep and wake naturally.
2. More time to exercise
It has been known that waking up early reduces your chances of missed workouts. There is nothing wrong with training after work but, by training first thing in the morning, you aren’t going to let the social plans or tiring work day get in the way of your training. Therefore, if you want to commit to a regular workout routine, then make morning time your exercise time. In addition, if you are having troubles to wake up and snap out of the sleepiness, a workout is an excellent way to fix it.
3. Better mental health
Usually one of the most important and yet the least spoken benefit of waking up early is the impact on your mental health.

5. A healthier diet
People who snooze tend to skip their breakfast because they are trying to get in every last wink of sleep. Your body needs the nutrients from breakfast in the morning for focus and energy, and skipping it is a bad idea. You have to break the fast with some healthy food since your body has been without any nutrients all night. Breakfast is a foundation for building healthy eating habits and by eating breakfast in the morning you are less likely to eat junk food the rest f your day.
