I love the benefits of waking up early, and I’m now really starting to understand how my morning routine is driving me towards success.
I’ve made it a habit of waking up early, like 4am every morning. To help me I’ve got this app for my smartphone that record my sleep pattern. It's set to wake me when I sleep at my lightest, preferably when I’m out of my REM sleep (deep sleep), between 03.45am and 04.00.
You'll find this app in the Google Play store. It's called Sleep As Android.
The Valuable Benefits Of Waking Up Early
By allowing technology to aid me in my climb towards success, in both business and health, I’m catapulted towards my goals. The app is letting me get up with ease and I’m ready to bring on the new day.
The benefits of waking up early like this are many, and I do not believe that sleeping in should be a part of home based business owners lifestyle. You know, as I guy who gets paid to blog, I really thought that sleeping in was one of the things that I wanted, but it turns out I don’t.
Even when given the chance to sleep as long as I want, I rather chose to get up early because of the benefits it gets me.
Not only does living like this provide me with great personal gains, but it enables me to also provide more value back to the marketplace. Think about it, if your income is a reflection of your value in the marketplace, than how valuable would it not be to spend a few more hours in the morning on planning the day, reading some educational and inspirational books and even finish your workout to boost the body with endorphins? I'll tell you, it's no better way to anchor your day!

The Compound Effect And The Best Benefits Of Waking Up Early
The major benefits of getting out of bed early and following my morning routine, is the compounding effect it has in my life. Day by day I get a little bit stronger from the workouts. Day by day I get a little bit wiser from the books I read. Day by day I get a little bit further ahead in my business from the planning and writing that I do. I truly have to credit my morning routine for this.
If I had to pick out just one of the benefits of waking up early in the morning, it would have to be how it allows me to sit quietly at my desk, planning how to spend the new day ahead. It gives me a great sense of power knowing that the day still is a blank piece of paper, and that I’m the captain of the ship – setting the sail and steering the day in whatever direction I want it to go.
I hope to provide some value with this little write-up on the benefits of waking up early. It has certainly become somewhat of a passion of mine, and I think I’ll follow this way of living to the day I die. I really hope to grow old and still getting up early to get wiser and stronger – just like God intended we should spend our lives, fulfilling our talents and potentials helping each other to be better.
