You may have heard or suggested by your elders that you have to wake up early in the morning for more productivity. Since we all have made our life in a manner that even we know it’s true and we must follow it, We couldn’t do it.
Before knowing how to wake up early at 4 AM, let’s dig into its Why?
All the successful people or most productive people used to wake up early at 4 AM in the morning and then start their day. from this, we can comprehend the pattern of waking up early in the morning and make the rest of the day more productive.
That’s why you should too wake up early in the morning between 4 AM – 5 AM.
Why you should not work late at night?
It is because when we work or study late at night it usually results in waking up late. So when you start your day around 7 – 8 AM for some folks it maybe 10 – 11 AM. Your day usually consists of many activities doing many things including meeting with people, listening to them sometimes you like their thoughts, sometimes you don’t due to all of this your brain get tired by the end of the day. So now when you sit at night with that tired brain to work or study and all those things happening throughout the day so the efficiency of your brain will get reduced at that point of time. Don’t you think so? Well, it varies from person to person and their lifestyle, but most of us are like that only.
So let’s say your brain at night is 50% efficient and with that 50% efficient brain you are going to study or work, so what will be the result of the work you do at that time. It won’t be 100% as it should be. The time you dedicate into your work and study will eventually be the result of your success or failure in that field, isn’t it?
Some will argue that it’s not like that they are most productive at night. I completely agree to their point as well but for how long. you might be young now with all the energy and excitement your body is helping you as of now but you have to do work or study throughout your life and you don’t want to work with a less efficient brain.
What happens in the morning?

There will be no noise around you either nor any kind of distraction these kind of rare things are very rare in the day-time. Now with your 100% efficient brain, you can focus and concentrate on the important part of your work or study. That is why my friend you and I should wake up early in the morning.
