With all the hustle and bustle of kids, work and life, it can be challenging to make the time to exercise. But exercising in the morning is a wonderful way to create a positive routine and provides many added benefits beyond just keeping you fit.
We all know that working out is great for our health i.e. for our body and mind. That’s a fact! The real question is how to reach the maximum from the effort we invest?
HERE IS A LIST OF BENEFITS THAT WILL GET UP YOU FROM BED AND PUT YOU INTO MORNING PROGRAM:
1.When you are doing your exercises early in the morning that’s trigger your metabolism and keep it elevated all day long, sometimes up to 20 hours! That means you’re burning calories while you are sitting later at school or work, or while you are having a cup of coffee with your friends. And that goes and goes all day long just because you exercised in the morning!
2.Morning workouts leave time for other priorities which is so important in these turbulent times. Nothing is more important than family and friends. Which is why slicing off a small segment of your time, in the morning, is usually better than in the evening.
3.As you probably know working out release endorphins, know as “feel good” hormones, which are increased following exercise of sufficient intensity and duration.
4.Ready to have a sharp mind? Awhile back, a study came out that exercise increases mental acuity. On average, it lasts 15 + hours after exercise! So, stop wasting that brain super power while you’re sleeping.
5.If you are doing your exercises at about the same time every morning, and you are wake-up at the same time every day, your body endocrine system and rhythms adjust to that. Actually, your body knows your schedule and is preparing to wake you up. And suddenly, it’s not so hard to wake up early in the morning.
6.Your hormones are working in your advantage. In the early hours, crucial hormone (speaking about men) testosterone, works in your favor and by exercising in the morning, you’re taking advantage of these really important and naturally circulating hormones, rather than later in the day when they’re lower.
7.You won’t have as many distractions, because everybody else is sleeping. Changes are good i.e. you may train with one or more friends. It’s nothing wrong working out with friends, but morning training will be, “do your job and start the day”.
8.Feeling more energetic all day. You will increase your ability for complex problems and complex thoughts. You will have energy for all the stress and problems during the day.
9.Morning workouts help you not to think on food as you used to think. So, this is one more reason working out in the morning. You will be able to regulate your appetite during the day. As many people love to say that puts them in “healthy mindset”.
