Within a few minutes of waking up in the morning, your energy is at its highest. Usually people wake up at 7 am, do their grooming and then go to work. When you wake up at 5 am, you have more time than anyone else to do your daily routines. In other words, you can spend the most productive hours of the day doing your daily work. When you complete your daily routines early, your motivation will be at maximum level.


2-You will gain 2 hours a day to work efficiently

Waking up at 5 every day will get you to bed at 10 pm. Thus, you will not have to spend the rest of the day in front of the television tiredly. Starting your day 2 hours early saves you 14 hours a week and 728 hours a year.

When you wake up at 7 or 8 in the morning, you can often encounter too many distractions. You realize that you have very little time to perform the basic tasks you need to do. In fact, your head may be very full for this reason. In this case, you may tend to procrastinate your tasks. You can think that you will do better tomorrow and leave everything for tomorrow or the next day.When you wake up at 5 am, you will start the day calmly and be able to concentrate on everything.

Trust is a byproduct of affirmative action. Confidence is the foundation of flexibility and imagination. The more confident you are in yourself, the more confidently you will move forward into the future. If you wake up in the morning and hit the snooze button on your alarm, you start your day with a negative momentum. This is really bad for confidence and creates negative fluctuations throughout the day. Confidence is built with small and consistent wins. When you start your day with small wins, this leads to other wins and eventually bigger wins. By waking up early each morning, you move towards your goals and build up a much higher level of confidence. Confidence is your biggest helper in making bigger decisions. You hesitate to make decisions without confidence. You continue to live in a state of indecision and apathy.
