It's not easy getting out of bed and hitting the ground running the morning for most people, but for those brave few who find power in the early hours of the day - this is why you rock (and maybe these reasons will inspire some more people to start setting their alarms a little earlier!)
1. You'll Rock at Work
Those lucky people who can hop out of bed without hitting the snooze button approach their careers with a more determined, hands-on attitude. Researchers at the University of Education in Heidelberg, Germany, found that night folks tend to be more creative, but the early birds usually have advanced problem-solving skills.

2. You'll Be More Reliable
If you find yourself procrastinating or find yourself a little moodier than you usually are, then you might want to consider waking up a bit earlier. According to a study by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, night owls are less reliable, less emotionally stable, and more likely to have addictions (eek!). So instead of planning a late date-night, suggest getting together with your friends for a morning run or grabbing breakfast!
3. You'll Be More Alert
Morning people tend get more sleep than their late-night friends, resulting in more awareness, a healthier immune system, and a more positive outlook about their day-to-day activities.
4. You'll Stress Less
Feel like there isn't enough time in the day? A study at the University of London found that those who woke up around 7:00 a.m., on average, had a lower chance of being stressed, depressed, or overweight. So if you think that extra 30 minutes of sleep will help you feel rested for work, it may be doing the exact opposite!
5. You'll Lose More Weight
Studies show that working out in the early hours of your day speeds up your metabolism, helping you burn more calories, resist junk-food, and seek out healthier snacks!
