Waking up early is like taking steroids for your life except without the negative side effects. In this post, we gonna talk about some incredible benefits of waking up at 5:30 a.m.

The time boost

Personally, When I started to wake up at 5:30 a.m. every single day, the very first thing I noticed was that I had way more time that’s why I call this the time boost. Most of my friends wake up at 11 a.m. or even later that’s fine but it means that I have an extra five to six hours of the day before they even open their eyes.

Time means everything in the modern world and so those hours are incredibly beneficial. Many notable CEOs have described the benefits of this time and all that it’s done for their careers. Steve Jobs for example used to wake up around 5:30 to 6:00 a.m. and used the extra time to get a head start at Apple. So if you start waking up at 5:30 a.m. you’re gonna experience the exact same kind of thing. The time boost is truly powerful.

Fitness consistency

Most people out there want to get fit. If you’re a guy you probably want to get strong and lean. If you’re a girl you probably want to get curves but still cut weight. Of course, fitness goals do vary a lot but that’s generally what people want.

Unfortunately, most don’t accomplish their fitness goals are you where you want to be are you as strong as you’d like to be or as lean as you’d like to be. For most people, the answer is no and the reason is simple it’s really hard to be consistent with your fitness goals. Going to the gym after a hard day at work or school is tough your motivation is drained. You’re tired and hungry and you’d rather watch Netflix with your dog and that all makes sense but there’s a simple cure that’s gonna help you accomplish every single fitness goal you could possibly have and I’m sure you’ve guessed it by now wake up at 5:30 a.m. When you wake up at 5:30 a.m. the extra time boost gives you the flexibility to work out before you exhaust your brain at work or at school. It means you can visit the gym first thing if you want and it means that you’ll have time to eat a healthy meal to make sure your recovery is good enough to so if you want to get strong lean and fit the answer is pretty clear.

Creativity hours

Ask yourself a simple question, how do you normally spend your time after 10 p.m.? are you working diligently at a hundred percent capacity no distractions probably not. After 10 p.m. most people relax and spend their time hanging out with friends drinking alcohol playing video games or doing other amusing activities. The truth is this the late hours of the day are never spent productively. They’re usually spent on things that don’t require much effort and lead to simple pleasures but the opposite is true for early hours.

When you wake up at 5:30 a.m. your mind is fresh and your motivation tank is full. You have the energy to do creative difficult and complex work. You can focus this time and energy on the things that really matter to you your long-term goals, your dreams, your ambitions, the things you’ve always wanted to do but probably never have done.

I’m here to tell you that the days of procrastination are over. Your late nights have limited your potential but no longer. Waking up at 5:30 a.m. gives you creative hours not wasted hours.

The lone wolf

Distractions are everywhere like your phone, the TV, sports, these are all major distractions and they are keeping you from accomplishing your goals but you’re not going to get rid of your TV and you’re not going to ignore a text from your friend it’s just not human nature but let me ask you this who’s gonna be texting you at 5:30 a.m. and what’s going to be on the TV, the answer’s no one and nothing. You see during the early hours of the morning everyone else is asleep, no one is there to distract you, no one is going to knock on your door or call you or text you or email you, sports are not played that early because only a few people would watch the world does not run at 5:30 a.m.

Thus your distractions are going to be significantly minimized. This will let you accomplish the things you’ve always wanted to do but never could. You’re gonna be a lone wolf free to be productive and powerful. Distractions are like a disease and early mornings are the cure.

Habit construction

Creating habits can be very hard. The world was not designed for people to do the same thing at the same time. Every single day maybe you want to go for a run but you can’t find a specific time that works throughout the week. This makes you inconsistent and inconsistency is very bad when it comes to creating good habits. Waking up at 5:30 a.m. is gonna fix this too.

Since nothing else really happens at 5:30, you’re free to dedicate your time in a very direct way, for example, you could make the time from 5:30 to 6:30 your designated exercise period or you could make the time from 6:30 to 7:00 dedicated goal-setting time. Your schedule is consistently set by you and not by other people or by other responsibilities.

The money grind

One of the best benefits of waking up at 5:30 a.m. is that it gives you an opportunity to make lots and lots of money. Let’s talk about the normal way people earn their income in today’s world. In general, you’re paid a wage or a salary for putting in time at work. This applies to everyone from doctors to fast-food workers, in essence, you’re performing a trade with the person you work for giving up your time in exchange for money.

I’m here to tell you that it does not have to be that way creating a side income based on a different philosophy is one of the best life decisions that you can make and one day you could potentially even replace your job if you don’t like it but what is this different philosophy? Instead of trading your time for money I suggest creating a stream of income based around a system that generates money automatically.

In the modern world, the Internet has become one of the most powerful business tools on the plan and there are tons of ways to legitimately generate revenue online in the spare time that you have each and every morning. You could learn to invest you could start a website or a blog you could make a popular Instagram account or even a YouTube channel. These are all examples of system based income, rather than wage based income websites, YouTube channels, and stocks all generate revenue while you sleep and that is what makes them so powerful.
