This keeps your body in shape and supplies you with the relevant energetic vibe. Meditating early in the morning can provide you with clarity and ample time to prepare yourself for the oncoming hectic day.
3. Productivity at its best!
Your mind is at its peak during the morning. hence you better put it to good use! Get done with your most herculean tasks early in the mornings so you have the rest of the day to enjoy.

Nothing spells efficiency like waking up in the morning to get ahead of your daily chores!
4. A prolonged sleep does you wonders!
Early risers also tend to have well established sleep routines. When you wake up early, your biological clock will also enable you to sleep at the earliest, which will lead to establishing a healthy sleep routine.
