To celebrate the launch of The Art of the Everyday, our new capsule collection with COS, we at MR PORTER decided to muse upon a few simple quotidian habits that can vastly improve the quality of a man’s life. Below, early riser and Men’s Health contributing editor Mr Jamie Millar explains why every man should aim to wake up at dawn as much as possible.
It’s at this point that you insist that you’re not a “morning person”. It’s even possible that you’re genetically predisposed to night-owl-ness. But it’s also possible – likely even – that any individual with a vampire-like aversion to dawn is also coming home late each night, bodily exhausted, before collapsing into bed, a broken man. That’s no good. While it might sound counterintuitive, moving your alarm forward can actually stop this vicious cycle, eliciting a profound shift in how you feel physiologically and psychologically. By front-loading your day, you’ll have more time left at the end for socialising with friends and family. (Remember them?). If you need any further convincing, scroll down for three reasons that an early start is the right start.
