Early Morning Minority

‘Morning people’ are often misunderstood within society, some say ‘never trust a morning person’, similar to the distrust of those that don’t drink coffee or wine. But, there are a few things about the morning minority that give them the edge…

  • Studies show watching the sunrise increases Serotonin, making us feel content and happy.
  • “Morning people” possess desirable qualities such as being more positive, optimistic and feel more satisfied with their lives.
  • If you have trouble sleeping, the hormone Serotonin also improves sleep quality, watching the sunrise, exercise and certain music can stimulate Serotonin production for improved sleep quality.

  • Establishing a sleep routine is critical in maintaining a stable body clock, sleep experts say this is important to get quality sleep.
  • To stabilise late nights or travel, catching-up on sleep and long sleep-ins on weekends can make us feel lethargic, experts say you’re better to stick to a regular sleep pattern.
  • Exercise in the morning is also a good way to kick-start your day, body and mood. Anything from running, cross fit or a pump class at the gym, to yoga in your living room or a brisk walk will increase happy hormones, oxygenate your body and make you feel as though you’ve accomplished something (even on a monday).
  • You will have more time for a nutritious breakfast, improving thought clarity throughout the day
  • If you don’t plan your day the night before, you will have time to set goals, write to-do lists or plan odd jobs, this will help improve productivity
