One Weird Reason You Might Like Being an Early Riser
Well, there might be a really weird reason.
But before we get to it, let’s discuss the bennies of beginning your day early.
(Obviously, I’m a morning person. You have to be to get up at 3:30 a.m. M-F.)
Ever wondered why early risers are the real MVPs?
It’s not just about catching worms.
It’s a lifestyle that puts night owls to shame.
While early risers are sipping coffee with the sunrise, night owls are questioning their life choices over a bag of chips. We start our day with a burst of energy, while you’re contemplating the meaning of life in the eerie glow of your computer screen.
Early risers have mastered the art of brewing a perfect cup of coffee.
We enjoy the heavenly aroma of freshly ground beans, while night owls are raiding the fridge for that sad leftover pizza. Ever tried to savor a gourmet espresso at midnight? Spoiler alert: It tastes like regret.
Early birds get the best backdrop for their selfies – the majestic sunrise.
While you’re stumbling around in the dark, we’re striking poses with the sky as our Instagram filter. What do night owls get? A blurry moon and the risk of tripping over the cat. #Fail.
Let’s talk about the morning hustle.
Early risers don’t need a snooze button; we’re up and at ’em before it even becomes a temptation. Meanwhile, night owls are trapped in a Groundhog Day scenario, hitting snooze until reality is a distant memory.
In a world where the early bird catches the worm and the night owl catches… a rerun of late-night TV, it’s clear who the real winners are.
So, my nocturnal comrades, the next time you’re burning the midnight oil, just remember – the early bird gets the laughs, the memes, and the first dibs on breakfast. Rise and shine, because the crack of dawn is where the real party’s at
So what’s the reason you are an early riser?
If you’re a morning person, it might be because you’re part Neanderthal.
“People who are early to bed and early to rise may have their ancient ancestors to thank for the habit – or at least the Neanderthals with whom their forebears procreated, scientists say. Our ancient ancestors got it on with them, and we still have up to 4% Neanderthal DNA,” according to The Guardian,
A study found a lot of those leftover bits affect genes that govern our internal clock, and certain variants make you more likely to be a morning person.
