Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealth and wise. An old saying that is often used as a proverb as well as a nursery rhyme has more relevance and significance today than when it was conceived and penned. Today, people across the world have developed a penchant to sleep late and naturally wake up late as well. Waking up early is indeed healthy and health is the most precious wealth for anyone.
There is a degree of disagreement among many people, including some biologists who otherwise should be preferring the biological clock of sleeping and waking up. In a world before electricity was invented and when nights got illuminated, people used to wake up before sunrise or at dawn and used to complete all their tasks before sundown. Today, there is no such compulsion. People can work all night and burn the proverbial midnight oil. It is often argued that the concept of the biological clock was relevant centuries ago and is not of much importance now because the human body and mind can adapt to any routine or sleep cycle.
It is true that the human body can adapt to certain routines and sleep cycles but it is also true that waking up early is healthy.
