1) Productivity Boost

“The difference between rising at five and seven o’clock in the morning, for forty years, supposing a man to go to bed at the same hour at night, is nearly equivalent to the addition of ten years to a man’s life.”

~Philip Doddridge

2) Creativity Boost

“The early morning has gold in its mouth.”

~Benjamin Franklin

3) Health Boost

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”

~ Author Unknown

4) Downside = Guilt!

Conclusion

“Life is too short,” she panicked, “I want more.” He nodded slowly, “Wake up earlier.”

~Dr. SunWolf
