    Smile "I'm earlier" VS "I got up earlier"

    Do the following two sentences have the same meaning?
    If not so, what is the differnce between them?

    1 I'm earlier today than I was yesterday
    2 I got up earlier than I did yesterday

    Thanks in advance.

    1 To 'be early' usually means to 'arrive early.'
    2 To 'get up early' means to arise (from sleeping) earlier than usual.

    All best wishes,
