Benefits of Early Rising & Scientific Explanation of the Brahmamuhurta


Waking up early in the morning has its own benefits. It keeps the body and mind healthy. In the past, people used to wake up in the early morning and do the daily chores and exercises and were healthy and happy. But in today’s world conditions have changed, people stay up and night due to their job types and people who attend night clubs. This has seriously affected the health conditions and more severely the mind and stress issues. So we have to shift back to the early to bed and early to rise thing in literal terms. In Ayurveda, our acharyas have mentioned the benefits of early waking thousands of years ago. Thus we should consider the statement ‘back to vedas’ by Swami Dayanand Saraswati in this term. It is the time best for meditation as it is when there is calmness and silence surrounds the human. In the text below, we shall discuss the benefits of early rising. Let’s discuss!!


What is Brahma Muhurta?

In Ayurveda, the term ‘Brahmamuhurta’ refers to the last leg of the night. Ayurveda commands that people who are healthy must wake up in the early morning in order to maintain their healthy status. Brahmamuhurta is the morning period between 3.30 a.m. and 5.30 a.m. It is suitable for meditation. After a good night’s sleep, the mind is refreshed, calm and serene. There is the preponderance of sattva or purity in the mind at this time, as well as in the atmosphere. In the language of laymen, Brahmamuhurta is a time before the sunrise. Waking up early sets the body clock in a good routine. Early morning is the best time for exercises, walking, running and gym.

This is the time when the body and mind are in a relaxed state which makes it the best time to do certain body and mindful activity or the activities that require the good attention of the brain and mind.

Studies have revealed that due to a fresh mind and calm surrounding or environment, the work done during this time is fruitful whether it’s meditation or study. In addition to this, it gives a person stress free, well organised, positive, happy and healthy life.
