While exercising at all is good for your health, morning exercise has proven to be even more beneficial.
As long as you fit in the workout somewhere in your day, don’t feel guilty for not exercising in the morning. But, if you can workout to start your day, then you should.
Morning exercise leaves you energized for the rest of the day. When you exercise, your brain tells your body to prepare for a long day. You will have more energy during the day and won’t get that sleepy feeling that usually comes around noon. You will be able to get more things done and be more productive during the day.
Exercise in the morning makes you happy. Exercising causes the brain to release endorphins and endorphins make you happy. Who does not want to be happier during the day?
Exercising jumps starts your metabolism. When your metabolism gets rolling early in the morning. You will burn more calories during your day.
Studies have proven that exercising increases brain activity. Harness that mental power and use it to your benefit for the rest of your day.
Morning exercise regulates your appetite for the rest of the day. Not only will you eat less but you will eat smaller portions.
Exercising in the morning before everyone gets up will give you some time to yourself. You won’t have to worry about finding the time to exercise or other things getting in the way of your work out.
People who constantly exercise in the morning find that they actually look forward to morning exercise and make it a part of their routine whereas people who exercise when they can hardly ever do. They find it the best start of their day.
Try to exercise in the morning for a week. Wake up about 30 minutes earlier and work it out! You’ll find that you will go to bed earlier, sleep better and just feel better during the day. I challenge you!
