We are fully aware of the benefits to moving our bodies on a daily basics so I won't drill that point home too much. It's understood that moving your body can help reduce stress, get your endorphins pumping and aid in weight loss. Those things we can all agree on. Now, it comes down to actually to taking action and making each workout a reality.
We are all busy- it's the fact of life and sadly the reality of being an adult. But, "BEING BUSY" isn't a free pass for skipping out on the importance of making our health & wellness a priority. And while I hate the quote that someone busier than you is working out as it feels cocky, it's true!
If you can't decide between a morning or afternoon workout - then don't! Review your schedule to determine what works best for you.Personally, I've had greater success sticking to a morning workout routine than trying to get to the gym in the afternoon, if you still aren't convienced that working out in the morning is better than hitting the snooze button than scroll down.
HERE ARE 6 REASONS WHY WORKING OUT IN THE MORNING IS BETTER THAN HITTING THE SNOOZE BUTTON
1 - Your body isn't mentally or physically drained from a long day of work and juggling a busy household
2 - It's less likely that you'll have to wait to use a piece of equipment in the morning than during high peak time in the afternoon or evening
3 - Mid-morning is often a busier time in the gym and early afternoon into the evening so, you'll be beating the crowds.
4 - Your metabolism will be boosted and energy levels are increased
5 - A bi-product might be increased productivity during your work day
6 - Morning workouts are natural mood boosters
As I bonus, I'm sharing a few workouts to knock out first thing in the morning while the rest of the world is still sleeping:
