    Sleep deprivation leads to disease of the mind and body and an early death. The vast majority of the population needs around 7-9 hours of sleep per day. If you naturally need less sleep, then go for it. But if you’re typical, don’t feel guilty and unproductive/undisciplined. Your functionality and productivity dramatically decreases when you miss just 1-2 hours of sleep. Sleep is healthy, listen to your own body.

    It doesn't matter how early you get up in the morning; what really matters is getting enough sleep. Important physiological processes are happening while we sleep. An average REM cycle is about 90min (1.5hrs) and the average person needs 4-5 REM cycles (this is the reason why 7 - 8 hrs of sleep are recommended by medical professionals). When people have to drag themselves out of bed after an average night of sleep, it usually is because they woke up in the middle of REM-sleep. Waiting a few minutes for the body to finish the processes it started while in REM sleep is important, and this time helps restore your energy and mental focus. A visit to a sleep lab will help you understand your sleep a little better. If you are constantly irritated or just don't feel good, chances are you are suffering from chronic pain or chronic sleep-deficit. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD SLEEP!

    Waking up early is fine if you get enough quality sleep. There are HUGE AMOUNTS OF RESEARCH supporting getting enough quality sleep--ranging from 7-9 hours.

    Why not stay in comfort for few minutes and just relax at morning? Things well be done in their time without hurry. Like everyone knows; constant hurry causes mental illness and burnouts (at work).

    i start practice wake up at 4 am for a month so far, i have start sleeping at 10 , before i sleep so so late, sometime early morning and if i dont need to work i wake so late too, 8 hours to sleep even more than that make me feel dizzy, lazy, but now even im busy and cant sleep at 10, maybe at 11 or 11;30. with at least 4 hours sleeping , so fresh everyday. If i sleep just 4 hours but with schedule time like before , i dont think i can handle a day. It mean, i have to sacrfice some habit and activites, just keep something worth

    I loved this video. Waking up early was always part of my style. However after many ups and downs in life I lost my grip on having the enthusiasm as well as discipline to make it up on time. This video gives me that boost of motivation to begin once again.

    If you dont exercise, for the love of god please start, im new to it and the biggest adjustment to my life it has created, is i dont feel drained or tired and when i do exercise im so pumped and keen to get shit done, sounds counter productive to spend time exercising but you give 30 mins of your day to it and it gives you so much more back

    I used to play a lot of World of Warcraft when i was younger, when i look back on the amount of time i spent doing that, i feel that regret for all those years i spent playing that game and i had nothing to show for it irl. i to clarify dont regret actually playing the game, because it was creatively inspiring and it helped me through shitty times, i regret how much time i spent playing it, and not figuring out a way to spend that time more productively towards building my future.

    Dude. People need more sleep per day to be more productive with the time they have. Doesn’t matter how early they wake up if they don’t get as much done in the day as compared to someone well rested and focused in the daily routine. I agree with discipline but that’s all for not of your just chasing a clock.
