The thought of sweat-inducing exercise can be a very daunting but it is essential to healthy living and if ignored, could lead to numerous complications. The best approach to take when it comes to exercise is to get it done first thing in the morning before the day and all of its tasks cause you to become too busy or tired. The perks of accomplishing exercise prior to the days start go far beyond simply getting it out of the way, in fact, exercising in the morning directly corresponds to:

  1. Boosting Mood: Getting up early may be the hardest part of the day, even harder than resisting the cake in the break room at the office. While exercising in the morning may have you rising a little earlier, after you complete your work out, you will feel ten times better. Exercise activates various brain chemicals, leaving you happier and more relaxed. You may even find yourself feeling more confident with your appearance, and a high self-esteem can lead to being more productive at work too. Also, exercise helps decrease your stress levels as well, so no task will look too large. Oh and that cake, you won’t want it because, honestly, who wants to out eat their exercise?

  1. Elevating Energy Levels: You may be a slave to your coffee maker or the coffee shop down the street from work, but if you integrate exercise into your morning routine, you may be able to cut back on a few cups of Joe. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. When your body works more efficiently, you have more energy. The only downside to incorporating fitness into your routine is that the barista at the nearest coffee shop might miss you.

  1. Increasing Focus: Do your eyes tend to go cross-eyed after long stretches of looking at the computer screen? Are you one to fall asleep during an important business meeting? If so, then you certainly need to adopt a morning work out ritual. Exercise increases blood flow, which keeps you more focused on the tasks you need to get accomplished. Again, exercise also increases brain chemicals in your body that help you narrow in on specific tasks at hand and accomplish them efficiently. You will certainly be on the road to a promotion if you incorporate morning exercise into your life.

  1. Motivating: If you’re trying to eat better, exercise may be able to help. Working out is not exactly a leisurely walk in the park. Exercise is rather intense and people who exercise tend to eat healthier because they don’t want to ruin the hard work they put forth at the gym. Exercise also has a way of decreasing your appetite. What sounds better after an excruciating run, an iced cold bottle of water or an extra thick slice of pecan pie?

  1. A Better Sleep at Night: Exercise is the “elixir” to a good nights sleep. If you struggle to fall asleep or wake suddenly in the middle of the night, exercise will certainly be able to help you get a wonderful nights rest (our detox patches also help stimulate alpha brain waves & promote sleep). A study done at Northwestern University found that those who exercised for 20 minutes had improved sleep quality, and were found to be less depressed, with more vitality and less sleepiness during daytime hours. So essentially, exercise could be deemed a “sleeping pill.” Just be sure not to exercise too close to bedtime because initially exercise increases your heart rate and blood flow, increasing your energy levels – this is why exercising in the morning, prior to the day’s start, is the best time to get moving.

Breaking a sweat in the morning may still be intimidating but all of the benefits that come with doing so may motivate you to set your alarm clock at least thirty minutes earlier than you normally wake up. Doing this could actually change your life, for the better.
