Since childhood, it has been inculcated in our minds that getting up early and going to bed early is the secret to a healthy life. Research has shown that, early birds tend to be fitter and happier than night owls. They get more work done, tend to put on less weight, and are more organized. Our body clock aligns with nature's clock if we get up before sunrise. Ayurveda also says that, starting our day before sunrise has numerous physical and spiritual benefits.
