5 A.M. Challenge (Day 1): Wake up at 5 AM for a month

Some of the most successful people in the world wake up by 5 A.M. every day: Michelle Obama, Tim Cook, and Bill Gates to name a few. So why would someone choose to wake up early if they didn’t have to?

Studies show that individuals who rise earlier on average:

  • Eat healthier
  • Are higher performers on exams/work/etc.
  • Are more proactive
  • Anticipate problems
  • Exercise more
  • Sleep better
  • Have better attitudes
  • etc.

So I’m sure you’re now wondering… does this even work? 

FEM has decided to find out with the help of the adventurous Hamzah Khan. Hamzah Khan is one-half of the experimental electronic hip-hop music group Solanta and also an individual passionate about mental and physical health. He has decided to take on the 5 A.M. challenge and wake up at 5 A.M. every day in an effort to live a healthier lifestyle. See day 1 of his journey by clicking the video below:
