Jez: Get up early and you can achieve so much more

Have your say

Scientists have revealed that spending longer in bed is actually good for the brain and can help prevent Alzheimer’s.

I really wish I was able to enjoy long, lazy mornings lying in bed, but my body clock prevents it.

After spending more than a decade getting up at 5am for various breakfast shows, I now find myself most weekends waking up at 7am.

Normally I creep out of the house and take the dog for an early morning walk, leaving my wife and kids to have a Sunday lie-in.

If you get up early you can achieve so much more with your day. Sometimes I have cleaned and polished my car and been to the shops, all before my kids wake up.

But I fall asleep at about 9pm most nights, much to my wife’s disgust.
