The work schedule from 9 am to 6 pm does not leave much time for personal life. The schedule of most of us resembles not life but a kind of zombie existence: a hard climb, the way to work, returning home, eating, insufficient sleep. Workouts are postponed until late in the evening and are often skipped.
However, just one change in your routine can bring your zest for life back to life. The peak of the level of energy and motivation in a person comes before 8 in the morning. Use this time for your morning workouts, and very soon, you will realize how easy even the most difficult tasks have become.
Having received a heavy load in the morning, the body begins to accelerate all metabolic processes. Plus, excess oxygen helps you burn calories even when you’re not doing anything else after exercise. According to the latest research, exercising in the morning burns roughly 200-300 calories by the end of the day.
By evening, most of us feel very tired. Even if this fatigue is mental, there is no strength left for physical exercises. As a result, dissatisfaction with oneself accumulates – not to mention the extra pounds.
But in the morning, a person is energized and in complete control of their behavior. Go to your workout early and feel more relaxed for the rest of the day.
Afraid of getting tired after your morning workouts? In vain. Exercise can be a huge source of energy that we all need at the start of the day. Think of it as a natural cup of coffee.
In addition, early fitness improves concentration and therefore helps you to be more productive.
The habit of waking up early will make you more disciplined in all areas of your life. Deadlines will gradually go away; being late for meetings will only become a bad memory. Moreover, to develop a habit, you will have to endure only a week or two.
Exercising in the morning will help you get a good night’s sleep. A recent study by physiologists showed that morning exercises improve the duration and quality of sleep: the body recovers better during the deep sleep cycle.
Reaching the goal
No one wants to wake up early every morning for no apparent reason. Set yourself goals, and you will see that things went much easier. Your subconscious mind does not know how to argue: it receives an order from above and performs the task.
If for the third year in a row you still can’t get pumped up by the summer, then morning fitness is the only thing that will help.
Did you know that doctors prescribe fitness in the morning for severe depression? That’s right, training like this can help heal a serious mental illness. After a week of training, the human body begins to work like a clock: fast metabolism, sound sleep, clearly aware of the surrounding mind – depression begins to go away by itself. And don’t forget about post-workout endorphins.
