Jakarta, TOPNews Indonesia —
Work from home (WFH) during Emergency PPKM it might make some people have more time. No need to catch a train or get stuck in traffic, so you can wake up later than usual.
If you are one of them, try reducing it. The reason is, there are many benefits when deciding to wake up early.
Here are five benefits of waking up early, as reported by Healthline.
1. More time for yourself
If you live with a family – small children or adults – getting up early can give you much-needed (and much-desired) time to yourself.
More time sipping coffee slowly while listening to your favorite song or just enjoying the silence can help prepare you for a busy day feeling a little more relaxed.
2. More time to exercise
If you often have trouble finding time to exercise, getting up early can be the solution.
Doing exercise as the first activity after waking up can avoid the temptation to be lazy or tired after being packed with other activities all day.
In addition, you can get exercise earlier. Among them trigger a surge of endorphins that can improve your mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase energy levels.
3. Sleep better
Research shows that people who wake up early tend to go to bed earlier and enjoy longer, quality sleep.
Adequate sleep has many benefits:
– improved mood
– better concentration
– lower chances of obesity and other chronic diseases
On the other hand, lack of quality sleep can:
– weakens your immune system, which means you may get sick more often
– increase the risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes
– as well as disrupt sex drive
4. Healthier skin
A heavy night can show on your skin in fine lines, wrinkles, pallor, and puffy or drooping eyelids. Lack of sleep can also cause acne.
A good night’s sleep helps keep your skin healthy. During sleep, your skin cells regenerate, while increased blood flow and collagen help repair damage from pollution and UV rays.
5. More concentration
Your brain doesn’t wake up once you wake up, which is why we tend to feel dizzy and confused when we first wake up.
It can last about an hour or so, making it harder to concentrate and get work done if you get up and out the door too soon.
But getting up early gives you time to wake up fully so you can focus more.
