Benefits of being an early bird

What I learned from waking up at 4:30 am during 4 months.

Early bird or a night owl? Neither.

I am a night owl. I can’t wake up early.

I used to say it myself and now I know that it is a big piece of BS. Humans are the most adaptable species in the world and something as simple as a sleeping pattern is merely a habit.

What is your “why” to wake up?

You wake up into a different energy

You see beauty

These are some of my mornings:

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST)
Pond in the Ssangam park near GIST

You become more organized and disciplined

When you don’t have a regime of waking up at a certain time you can always sleep a bit more if you are tired and need to recover.

You start to have a precious time for yourself

Did you want to start running?
Cook yourself a tasty breakfast?
Clean the room?

Issues with social life

There is only one downside of waking up early that I could think of. My early bird regime is not very compatible with the lifestyle of the majority of people around me. By the time people have their dinner I have already been awake for 12+ hours.


Waking up early is awesome!
