But looking at several studies about the correlation between waking up early and success, you might consider to become a morning person.
Benefits of being a morning person
- according to research early risers are more proactive and more positive than nightowls.
- in a study among college students in 2008, findings were that students who identified themselves as morning people tend to get better grades than those who are night owls.
- completing a priority task is easier: you have more time to plan and therefore execute your task efficiently
- early birds feel they are more in charge of things and have control over their life versus late(r) risers.
These benefits are actually synergetic, or mutually reinforcing: the feeling of being more in charge of your life, is bound to make your outlook on it more positive. Executing priority tasks first will get you better results; like studying for exams early and efficiently, you tend to get better grades. Remember: failing to plan is planning to fail.
Many people think that being an early bird is genetically predisposed. You either have it or you don’t. Few realize however that you can train yourself to become an early bird. So why not give it your best shot and reap those benefits. Bridge the gap and remove the unfair advantage that early risers currently have over you.
