Passages with Solved Precis

“The great advantage of early rising is the good start it gives us in our day’s work. The early riser has done a large amount of hard work before other men have got out of bed. In the early morning the mind is fresh, and there are few sounds or other distractions, so that work done at that time is generally well done. In many cases the early riser also finds time to take some exercise in the fresh morning air, and this exercise supplies him with a fund of energy that will last until the evening. By beginning so early, he knows that he has plenty of time to do thoroughly all the work he can be expected to do, and is not tempted to hurry over any part of it. All his work being finished in good time, he has a long interval of rest in the evening before the timely hour when he goes to bed: He gets to sleep several hours before midnight, at the time when sleep is most refreshing, and after a sound night’s rest, rises early next morning in good health and spirits for the labours of a new day.

It is very plain that such a life as this is far more conducive to health than that of the man who shortens his waking hours by rising late, and so can afford in the course of the day little leisure for necessary rest. Anyone who lies in bed late, must, if he wishes to do a full day’s work, go on working to a correspondingly late hour, and deny himself an hour or two of evening exercise that he ought to take for the benefit of his health. But, in spite of all his efforts, he will probably not produce as good results as the early riser, because he misses the best working hours of the day.

It may be objected to this that some find the perfect quiet of midnight by far the best time for working. This is no doubt true in certain cases. Several great thinkers have found by experience that their intellect is clearest, and they can write best, when they bum the midnight oil. But even in such cases the practice of working late at night cannot be commended. Few men, if any, can exert the full power of their intellect at the time when nature prescribes sleep, without ruining their health thereby, and of course the injury done to the health must in the long run have a bad effect on the quality of the work done”.

Advantage” of Early Rising

Early morning is the best part of the day. It is a refreshing period with calm and quiet around, free from dust, noise and bustle, and the atmosphere is excellent for exercise and work. One can do more work in the morning with less strain than at other times of the day; and it gives the early riser ample leisure for rest and recreation. There is no need for hurry and rush. He can go to bed early and enjoy good sleep in the best hours of the night. The benefits of early rising were so well known that it gave rise to the adage: “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, happy and wise.” Some may say that the calm and quiet of midnight is good for work. This may be true in the case of thinkers, but keeping awake at night ruins one’s health, as nature has prescribed sleep during the night, and loss of health will soon result in poor quality of work.
