In recent years, more and more news about sudden death from late sleep has appeared in hot search queries, and many people have begun to realize that if you continue to stay up late, sooner or later something will happen.
So everyone started trying to quit staying up late and trying to go to bed early.
In fact, it's more important than going to bed early, getting up early.
As Franklin said: "Early to bed and early to rise, make a man smart, rich and healthy."
Getting up early is too beneficial.
Getting up early is best way to stay healthy
Zeng Guofan said, "Getting up early is first secret to staying healthy."
Sun Simiao, known as "King of Medicine", was a famous birthday star in ancient times. He also wrote in his medical book Qian Jin Yi Fang:
If you want to go to bed in spring and get up early, if you want to invade night in summer and autumn, you must go to bed and get up early.
Sun Simiao warned future generations to get up early in spring, summer, and autumn, and his so-called late rise in winter actually meant getting up before five o'clock.
Therefore, a modern person needs to get up early all year round.
A study that won Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine found that:
If a person does not follow biological clock, risk of various diseases may increase;
On contrary, if you follow biological clock and go to bed early and wake up early, body's immunity will increase, and you will naturally reduce the likelihood of getting sick.
Early to bed and early to rise is good for health and even prolongs life.
I read a news story about a 100-year-old man from Yanggu County, Shandong Province, who still walked like a flyer even after he was over 100 years old.
When a reporter asked him why he lived so long, he only smiled and said, "Walk a hundred steps after getting up early, don't see a doctor or take medicine."
One day, netizen Zhihu shared his story:
Because of his busy work schedule, he has been sleeping around 12 pm for several years and waking up around 7:00-7:30 am.
He later decided to change his schedule and try to get up early, go to bed around 11:00 pm, and wake up around 5:00 am.
One hour less sleep, but his energy and body are better than before.
Get up early, two simple words, it's not hard to do, but it's better than any health food.
Waking up early is best way to stay healthy.
Getting up early is starting point of self-discipline
As saying goes: "Get up early and wake up three times, get up late and panic."
This means that if you get up early in morning, many things can be done safely, but if you get up late, you will be in a hurry.
Bai Jianjun, professor of law at Peking University, once advised freshmen at induction ceremony at Peking University:
Go to bed early and wake up early, limit your WeChat Moments to 10 people, and forgo confession to read with you.
Zeng Guofan's family motto also includes rule to get up early.
His great-grandfather, grandfather and father used to get up early. When Zeng Guofan arrived, this family tradition was also well passed down.
Zeng Guofang has stubbornly gotten up early all his life and set an example. At same time, he also warned his family from time to time.
He once wrote in a family letter to his younger brother: "If you want to get rid of word lazy, most important thing is to get up early."
In a letter to his son, he also said:
You are an adult and a married person, and you should also wake up early first, try your best, and then ask your new sister-in-law to do same.
According to Zeng Guofan, to see prosperity and decline of a family, it is enough to look at whether children and grandchildren have a habit of getting up early.
If children and grandchildren sleep until sun rises very high, then family will slowly relax.
Zeng Guofan's admiration for being an early riser also influenced many people around him.
From generals to employees, from family to friends, they are influenced by him to varying degrees and insist on getting up early with him.
Insisting on getting up early is starting point of human self-discipline. Say goodbye to laziness, quit procrastination and become more efficient in business.
Famous Japanese writer Yataro Matsuura has been insisting on getting up early for years:
Go to bed at about ten o'clock every night, wake up at five o'clock in morning, exercise every other day, walk ten kilometers fast, and then go to work at eight o'clock. This measured life is one of most important tasks for me.
Wake up in morning with first rays of sun and start day of life and work with renewed vigor.
Don't hesitate, don't be lazy, don't be lazy, but do everything energetically, this is best gift that an early rise brings us.
The world secretly rewards early risers
Tools of Giants features author Tim Ferriss' interviews with hundreds of celebrities.
One day, Ferris interviewed a boss named Jack Willink.
He used to be commander of US Navy SEALs. After leaving army, he founded a consulting company and published a bestselling book.
After spending one night together, Ferris found that Willink was an early riser.
After questioning, I learned that when Willink joined army, he was disciplined to get up at 4:45.
Even though he is no longer in army, this habit has persisted to this day.
When I was in army, I always felt that some enemy was waiting for me, so I had to get up before him. Now that I'm not in military, I have an inexplicable sense of superiority at thought of so many competitors fast asleep when I wake up.
A foreign scientist once conducted a survey among 177 successful self-made people to study their daily habits. As a result, it turned out that 99% of successful people have a healthy habit of getting up early.
Li Ka-shing, richest man in Hong Kong, no matter what time he goes to bed every night, he wakes up at 6 a.m. next morning;
Jobs, founder of Apple, got up every morning at 4 o'clock and finished work before 9 o'clock;
Lee Kun Hee, chairman of Samsung, is scheduled to arrive at office at 6 am, half an hour ahead of staff;
Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, still gets up at 5 am every morning at age of 67, then plays tennis, does her hair and goes to work...
The reason successful people succeed is mostly because of hard work and dedication that others don't see.
There is an almost masochistic self-discipline behind glamor; confidence that doesn't stop throughout day is energetic energy that persists in getting up early.
There is a saying:
Getting up early isn't about working an extra hour, it's about starting your 17 hours of wakefulness in best possible condition.
That makes sense.
As written in book "Heirloom":
Early in morning, energy doubles, reading at this time will bring many benefits.
By waking up early to get busy, you often get twice results for half effort. People who get up early are more likely to be awake.
The world secretly rewards early risers.
Youth really benefits
I saw a very heartbreaking phrase:
Life is so petty and cruel. You are afraid of cold in winter, so you will lose to those who insist on exercising while lying in bed; you are afraid to get tired at work, so you will lose to those who continue to progress; you don't go to bed in morning, so if you sleep ten minutes more every day, you will lose out to those who get up ten minutes earlier.
Rise early and rise late lead to two lives.
Nan Huaijin also said, "The person who can control morning can control life."
From now on, control yourself and insist on getting up early, which is not only to maintain health, but also to cure laziness and self-discipline.
Only in this way can we better control steering wheel of life and drive soberly into future.
