Hello everyone and welcome to another post! In this post I will be talking about the benefits of working out in the mornings. I wanted to touch up on this topic because I myself to my workouts in the morning and love it.
1) Helps Improve Productivity
After I started working out in the mornings I started noticing that I would feel more awake and energized during the day. I knew that I couldn’t be the only one that felt this way so I started investigating why. I came to find out that working out in the mornings increases your mental clarity for about 4 to 10 hours after the workout. If you think about it, it makes sense since working out gets your endorphin going which in return it gets you going.
2) It Improves Your Sleeping
Yes you read that correctly! Working-out in the morning helps improve your sleeping habits. I know I mentioned this on another of my post but I wanted to add it on this one as well because sleep is a very important part of a healthy life. Now to change it up a little let me tell you why it is better to workout in the morning. Since working out stimulates your body, if you exercise at night it is more difficult to relax and fall asleep.
3) It Helps With Your Eating Habits
By knocking out your workout first thing in the morning you will think more wisely when choosing your food at lunchtime. I know I do when it comes to choosing what I will eat, I remember hustle I did in the morning and don’t want to ruin it by making a bad choice with my food. By remembering the hustle in my workouts I did in the morning I always go with the healthier choice. But don’t take my word for go ahead and try it out. 🙂
Consistentcy is key to getting healthy and staying healthy. It is no wonder why working out in the morning helps a lot with this. It has been said that people who workout in the morning are more consistent with their workouts than those who workout in the morning. I believe this to be true because when I used to exercise in the afternoon I would find myself finding excuses to not exercise. Let me give some examples:
a. “I got out of work late, I’ll workout tomorrow and makeup for today.”
b. My favorite one of all haha, “I need to feed the dogs, poor dogs”. Lame I know right 🙂
c. “I just finished eating and need to wait at least 30 Minutes”, which those 30 minutes turned into hours and into bed time.
Now I’m not saying that there isn’t REAL reasons to not be able to work out in the morning, there is, and an even bigger reason to get those workouts done in the morning. Since you won’t have those excuses you will be more consistent.
5) It Helps Boost Your Metabolism!
This one gets me excited because I used to have the problem of my metabolism being so slow. Loosing weight was really difficult for me, I basically had to not eat anything all day. Or just eat pure salads and soups all day every day. When I heard this about working out in the morning I decided to give it a try and BAMB now I can eat more than just salads and soups 🙂 I love it! The reason why is that when you workout you keep burning calories throughout the day long after your workout is done. So why not use this to your advantage and workout in the morning, this way when you are eating during the day you are still burning calories and in return helping boost your metabolism. The better your metabolism the more calories you burn. It only makes sense right?
6) More Time Afterwards
This one goes hand in hand with number 4. If you knockout your workouts in the morning before anything else you will have more time in the day to do the rest. Even if you work, when you get out of work you will have more time after work to do that to-do-list that you have been putting off for when you have more time. And you will be able to do this list without having to worry about having time to get your workout in for the day because you already hustle in the morning. In my situation I like to spend time with my family and help my kids with their homework, so getting my workout done in the morning works perfect for me. It allows me to spend more time with my loved ones. And that’s without mentioning the benefits of working out in the morning.
Give It A Try
I know that sometimes it might be hard to wake up in the morning but ones you do, believe me, you will be right awake after your awesome workout. But don’t just take my word for it, give it a try. But don’t just try it for one day, give it more time and you will notice the difference yourself. Go for it give it a try and let me know what you think in the comment section below. Thank you for your time and best of luck!
