Your life will be whatever time you get up.
how will life change if you insist on getting up 21 days early?
Filipe Castro Matos, a professor at the University of Lisbon, launched a challenge: getting up at 4:30 for 21 consecutive days.
after starting to get up early, he found that his life had undergone amazing changes:
when he woke up every morning, thinking that he had a few more hours than others, he would be full of confidence in his life.
when he went out for a run, the first ray of sunshine in the morning and the fragrance of birds and flowers on the road were all beautiful things he had never felt before.
every time before going to work, dealing with trivial work in advance, it is not easy to be disturbed during the day, and the work becomes handy.
finally, he said with emotion:

getting up early and getting up late is a completely different life
what is the difference between getting up early and getting up late?
netizen @ Santuo, shared her story on Zhihu.
for a long time after graduation, her schedule was very chaotic:
she was too anxious to sleep at night, slept into the afternoon during the day, got up, listless and couldn't pick up anything. At night, I felt like I had wasted half a day's time, so I felt guilty all day.
such a vicious circle made her have a nervous breakdown.
one night, she suddenly felt that she was out of breath and her heart began to beat so fast and slowly that she went to the hospital for a medical examination the next morning before dawn.
the doctor said that her present state of malaise is mainly caused by irregular work and rest and too much pressure.
after listening to the doctor's words, she learned a painful lesson and decided to change.
she began to force herself to get up early and launched an early sign-in program online for netizens to supervise. If she didn't get up before 8 o'clock, she would give everyone a red packet.
for 31 days, she kept recording the moments of getting up early every day.
to her surprise, a month later, her life has undergone earth-shaking changes:
after she began to get up early, she had more time at her disposal, reading, writing, and peace of mind. Anxiety gradually disappeared;
early morning jogging made him change his decadent temperament, and the whole person became radiant and full of vitality.
it is said in Zengguang Xianwen: "getting up early is three lights early, getting up late is three panic."
although getting up late can bring a short-term pleasure of sleeping in, when you wake up, you often feel depressed, physically and mentally exhausted, and even affect the mood of the day because you are in a hurry.
getting up early brings spiritual pleasure. When you open your eyes early in the morning, you can start a sober day at your best.
the ancients said: the plan of the day lies in the morning, and the plan of the year lies in the spring.
you spend your whole life as you spend your morning.

the huge debt pressure, coupled with the heavy cost of living, made him have a nervous breakdown and suffer from severe depression. During that time, he indulged in self-pity of depression and despair and wasted his time by sleeping every day.
until one day, a friend couldn't watch it and pulled him to get up early and run in the morning.
when he walked out of the house, looking at the newborn sunrise and feeling the breeze passing by his ears, his sleeping heart was awakened and rekindled his hope for life.
after that, he made a strict morning plan for himself. He woke up every morning to meditate, self-motivate, run and read.
after a period of time, he found that his mental state had improved, picked up the hope of life, and began to immerse himself in work.
