I have recently adopted a new and healthy habit of waking up early in the morning. It’s only been a while but has tremendously beneficial. However, before that time, I was rarely out of bed by 8.00 AM apart from some specific occasions, one of which was to attend the English speaking club on Sunday morning.
The English speaking club was held on Sunday morning every 2 weeks at around 9.00 AM, therefore, I had to get up approximately 2 hours before to get ready. The coffee shop where the club usually gathered for socializing was quite far from my house, which took me nearly 30’ to get there by bike. Each session would focus on a different topic which covered from economics, politics to fashion trend and traveling. Thanks to the diversity of topics, our discussions were always refreshing and intriguing, which helped to attract more and more participants. The English club was specialized for those who were interested or pursuing IELTS – an international English assessment for those who were non-native speakers. However, anyone who wished to practice and improve their English were always welcomed here. Besides learning and practicing English together, this was an awesome place to meet new people and make friends. I had opportunities to talk with people from diverse backgrounds who worked in different industries with different points of view. They, more or less, had contributed to how I reconsidered the world and I was grateful for that.
Gone are the days when I stayed in bed until 8.00 every morning, however, every time I thought about those rare occasions when I got up early, those interesting conversations at the English club filled my head. And if you want to open your world and experience more, participate in any social group around to and engage in conversation, you will get more than you’ve expected.

1. Who usually get up early, young people or old people?
In my opinion, the elder are always early birds since they cannot have so much sleep even if they try, which maybe results from aging. Youngsters, on the other hand, are night owls and some might even more energetic at night than in the morning. Surfing Facebook, going to nightclubs or staying up late to meet the deadlines are common among those who are in their twenties as they don’t pay much attention to the long-term effect of functioning against natural biological clock.

2. Will working late at night influence the next day’s work?
It would be undoubtedly a yes for me. Staying up the previous night, no matter the reason, is highly likely to adversely affect your productivity and awareness the next day unless you are accustomed to it. Research has shown that a person need at least 7-hour-sleep per night to assure their physical and mental capability. Therefore, it you are to increase your efficiency and meet all your deadline, start to manage your time and prioritize other than working late.
3. Do young people stay up late at night?
I suppose that the majority of adolescence do not go to bed until midnight. Due to night time schedule. Sometimes they have no business to stay up that late but somehow Facebook keeps receiving notifications or their favorite TV show has a very good timing to release a newest episode they’ve longing for the whole week.
4. Is it easy to get up early for you?
If you had asked me that question a few years ago, I would have said no because back then, hardly did I get out of bed before 8.00 AM. Nevertheless, I’ve changed and adapted a new lifestyle for a couple of years. One of the most significant changes I’ve made during my transformation is becoming an early riser. It was a real challenge at first since old habits die hard, but if you make a commitment to yourself and try hard enough, it will pay off sooner or later. And that’s what happened to me.
5. What do you do to guarantee a good sleep?
Since I started getting up early, I forced myself to go to bed before 11.00 PM at night, too in order to maintain a long enough sleep. I did my research online and found various ways people can employ to have a decent sleep. One of those is not to use your phone or have contact with electronic gadgets at least 15 minutes before sleeping; instead taking time for relaxing activities such as getting a foot massage or putting on facial mask to bring your body to ready-to-sleep state. Another useful advice that most have already knew is to limit caffeine, alcohol and big meals right before bed, or else it would be bad for your metabolism.
Metabolism (noun) all the chemical processes by which cells produce the energy and substances necessary for life
