In addition to having more time to yourself to help you plan for the day ahead, waking up early also gives you a chance to go for a brisk walk and get some much-needed fresh air.   It gives you time to leisurely read your newspaper, have a big healthy breakfast, and enjoy your morning shower.

Those who wake up early are said to be more productive at work and are more successful in their careers as they are always early to report for work and have their day neatly planned out.

What are you waiting for?  Jump out of bed and greet the birds!
