Translate the following into English :

प्रातः जागने से सुन्दर स्वास्थ्य और आनन्द की प्राप्ति होती है । प्रातःकाल की हवा स्वच्छ और ताजी होती है । इसीलिए खुली और स्वच्छ हवा में भ्रमण करने से मनुष्य दिन भर ताजगी अनुभव करता है । इसके अलावा प्रातःकाल की शान्ति में दिमाग ज्यादा अच्छा कार्य करता है । स्वाभाविक है ऐसे समय में किया गया अध्ययन ज्यादा प्रभावी होता है । इसके विपरीत देर से जागने वालों को रात में देर तक कार्य करना पड़ता है । लेकिन देर रात तक जागना स्वास्थ्य के लिए अच्छा नहीं होता । साथ ही देर रात में दिमाग की क्षमता कम हो जाती है । कम ही लोग ऐसे होते हैं जिनका मस्तिष्क रात में बिना परेशानी के कार्य कर सकता है । इसीलिए प्राचीनकाल से ही दुनिया भर के महापुरुष सबेरे जल्दी जागने पर जोर देते रहे हैं ।

Answer – To get up early in the morning provides sound health and joy. The breeze in the morning is clean and fresh. Hence man feels active and freshness all day long in roaming in open and fresh air. Besides this, mind works better in the calmness of morning. Naturally, the study done in such a time is more effective. Against it, those who wake up late, have to do work late at night. But to remain waking late at night does not do good to health. Besides this, the capability of mind diminishes at night. Rare are those men whose mind works at night without difficulty. Hence, the greatmen of the whole world give importance to wake in the morning.
