I started to become a morning person when my age approached 50~about 10 years ago.I woke up about 30 minutes before fajr time(subuh) so that I have time to prepare myself to attend the solat at our masjid.It started with once a week and slowly one year later after my Haj,I wake at 4:30am every morning.Now, there is a bilological clock embedded in my body that I feel sleepy at 10pm and wakes up at 4:30am almost daily.
By waking up at 4:30am I have head start of 2 hours compared to those who wake at 6:30am.I have two solid hours to myself which I use for my ibadat,reading and even paperwork for my business.After more than two decades of working life,I came to realise that I am active and alert during morning hours and it deteriorates after 2pm.It may be due to my age.When I was younger,any day and any time is a good time!
By the way,our personal time is very personal.Some people are morning persons,and some people are afternoon persons and many of my younger friends are night persons.It is our choice but the most important thing is what we do with the available time that we are alert and active?
Since 2008,I became active in walking and cyling during my weekend mornings.However,I also cycle at night with my friends to avoid the hot morning sun but then I do feel sleepy while riding my bikes.On riding nights,I must sleep in the afternoon.Talking about sleep,more and more people are sleeping less.A few had died due to lack of sleep..
One advantage of early risers is we do get to see beautiful morning sun rise...Below is one of them.
