The moral superiority of waking early

Sleep is the pinnacle of self-care. Getting more of it. Getting better quality. I won't argue that sleep quality and quantity is awesome. But why is there a weird emphasis on waking up early?

When you search for advice on better sleep, most of the advice tells you that you really ought to be waking up early. Yet, it seems to be common knowledge that different people work better at different times of the day. Our work environments are beginning to reflect that understanding. No longer are we tied to a desk 8 to 5. Core operating hours and flex schedules allow the flexibility that our lives, and our sleep schedules, necessitate.
