Even though wellness and a commitment to feeling good are my passion and my life's work, sometimes even I feel like hell in the morning and the last thing I want to do is get out of bed.
But I always feel better when I push myself to exercise. That's why I've organized some tips to help you get moving on those days when it's the last thing you want to do.
Why You'd Want to Exercise In the Morning:
Exercise conquers bad moods and low energy states. It's totally worth the time and slug (don’t worry if you stick with it you will learn to love it), even if its effects last for just a few hours (the post-workout high can wear off when other stressful daily curveballs come careening at us).
Furthermore, sweat sessions are most effective when done in the morning because they will help you start your day with a positive attitude. They also rev up all metabolic systems setting your body and mind up to function at their highest levels all day long!
However you decide to cut it, The American Heart Association and many other national organizations recommend 150 minutes of light to moderate cardio and 75 minutes of vigorous cardio as a minimum amount of exercise for the researched health benefits of working out.
Working out can seem like drudgery until you get good at it and reap its benefits. Once you hit the key threshold, when your body adapts to the new aerobic demands and begins releasing the "feel-good hormones" called endorphins, you'll feel the high with which the rest of us exercisers walk around all day! Over time, you will increase your chances of disease prevention and injury.
