Before delving into the benefits of why starting your work day early is essential, let us try to fog out some debatable issues in the first place. Early Birds vs Night Owls always remain a hot controversial topic of which breed increases the productivity in the long run. Forget about the researches that claims to work based on the “body clock”. Well, it may be intimidating for the night owls to stick to their pattern from these researchers which conveniently justifies their work habits.
But let’s take a more practical approach. We are not going to talk about the scientific factors or other related research studies that supports the natural “body clock”. We are going to see this early to work approach with respect to the most densely populated countries like India, China or any crazy traffic cities in that sense.
Top 3 factors to consider

This clearly shows that apart from peak traffic hours these long hauling hours in the signals and not to forget the tropical weather condition may lead to drain you physically and mentally which takes a toll on your overall well being in the long run.
As I said before, think of the traffic in a developing country where you can expect many vehicles of various sizes along with uninvited animal visitors staring right in the middle of the road. If you start a few hours earlier before the actually work peak time hits the city, you are doing good to your city by reducing your vehicle footprint as well as doing good to your heart health with no commuting tension.
Stay Focused Whole Day
Stop checking in your office at 10 or 11 instead hop in few hours early. Try to come early and leave early. Many studies shows that the size of your brain is literally bigger in size than the rest of the day at the early morning hours which makes people to stay more alert in first part of the day! Whoa That’s an interesting angle!
When you are early to your office , you will be in a quiet blissful environment, no keywords buzzing or no emails/messages pop-up your inbox as most of your work force people are not shown up still.
You can write a productive to-do list and make a plan for the day, sort out the priority work and analyze the pending works. Psychologically when your mind will be relaxed, you will be more focused on decision making and fully energized for the day ahead.
Achieve The Perfect Work-Life Balance
Checking in early to work and leaving before the main traffic creeps in, has several advantages, of which maintaining a perfect work-life balance is one of the essential things. We are always on the toe, running behind 8 hours of work, earning your single bread , all for your family at the end of the day.
Thus , now you don’t want to miss out your kid’s after school activities or take care of the pending petty house errands or simply spend your evenings with your loved ones, which recharges your soul & Mind
Early birds get the hay is true to today’s fast paced world. Do you need to stand out among the working professional and create a work culture impact or follow the routine mundane boring work time which half of the population is currently following.
Take a call and get a better quality of life by changing a single habit. Because, there is “a” life beyond your work. Grab your favorite cappuccino & be an early birder! Who knows, someone in your office may soon follow your footsteps and slowly you can create a positive movement
