Rising early has been advocated by many philosophers and Ayurvedic masters like Aristotle and Vaghbata. Waking up early and having a daily routine is said to bring transformative change in body, mind and consciousness. In Ayurveda, misuse of the senses is considered as one of the main causes of disease and imbalance in the body and mind. In Ayurvedic terms this is called prajnaparadha. The daily routine, called as ‘dinacharya’, offers simple everyday practices to sharpen our senses and bring clarity to the mind, so that we naturally gravitate toward desires that are life enhancing.
In dinacharya, waking up early is one of the key things for having a life full of awareness. It can also be very productive, it is seen that people who wake up early are consistently able to accomplish more during the day. This method has been recommended since antiquity and is now recommended by a number of personal development gurus.
Modern research has attested the benefits of early rising. Studies have found that students who wake up early have better GPA’s than night owls (Texas University study) and employees who are early risers are considered to be more pro-active. (Randler)
Sleep experts have suggested that going to bed early and waking up early will make one’s body more in tune with the earth’s circadian rhythms, offering more restorative sleep. Other studies have shown that morning people exhibit character traits like optimism, being agreeable, satisfaction and conscientiousness; whereas, Night owls, while linked with creativity and intelligence, are more likely to exhibit traits like depression, pessimism and being neurotic.
