If you want to transform your body then exercise is probably the best way to do it. Whether you do it in the gym with heavy gym equipment online or in the park, it doesn’t matter. Your consistency is what will matter.
If you are reading this article, I am sure you have already decided to start exercising. What you are not sure about is when to start? Right!
Well, most people choose to work out at any time of the day at their convenience, but studies have proven that morning exercises have truly got an edge over others.
But before beginning let’s understand one thing, exercising has more benefits than just bringing you into shape. So, work hard and trust the process.
You will get more than asked for, including
1. More physical activity
Studies have proven that regular exercises in the morning lead to increased physical activity throughout the day.
Just a 45 min walk is bound to increase your physical movements for the next 24 hours. Because when you exercise in the morning, more activity leads to delivering more oxygen to your lungs and your muscles. This helps in causing less and less fatigue that improves the overall energy levels of the body.
So, if you are trying to be more active, their morning exercises can definitely lend you a big helping hand.
2. A good night’s sleep
It has been found that people who have the habit of exercising regularly have 78-80% chances of getting better sleep than others in general. But those who exercised early in the morning experienced deeper and longer sleep than those who worked out in the afternoon or evening.
As the endorphins released stay high until night, it takes them longer to fall asleep even when they are completely tired.
So, if you want to gain control of your habit of sleeping at 1 am or 3 am from now, you know what to do.
3. Faster fat burn
Probably the most obvious reason anyone starts working out is burning fat and getting into good shape. This has been going on in trend for quite some time and it’s safe to say that it is one of the good things propagated by social media.
So, if you want to have a good body, then having a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise is the way to go. And if you want better results, adjust your routine in the morning hours because exercising in an empty stomach is proven to burn more fat than after having a meal.
With the body staying warmer, the fat will still burn even after finishing your work.
4. Less stress
Stress impacts 77% of the population every year, leading to physical and mental disorders. And if you are someone that goes through this, then it’s advisable to start exercising regularly from now on. It is the most affordable and the easiest way you can control your stress and anxiety.
And since in the morning you wake up with a fresh mind, exercising will have more impact on your cortisol levels (stress hormones). It will help to bring it down and release endorphins (happy hormones) which will keep you happy through the day.
Consequently, your focus on work will increase, and the day will end on a productive note.
5. Increases brain memory
Regular exercise can be very helpful in improving your brain functioning and memory power. How?
When you exercise, your heart rate goes up, so more blood and oxygen flow into your brain. It also increases the hormonal production capacity of the brain which enhances its growth.
Further, it also helps prevent several chronic diseases related to brain-like dementia and Alzheimer’s.
6. Become stronger
Regular morning exercise is bound to make you stronger than you are right now. Activities like running and weightlifting can increase your bone density. This is important because as humans age, their bone density keeps reducing which can lead to common problems like back pain, and knee pain.
So, if you don’t want to go through that. Build the habit of exercising so you don’t have to face issues when you grow older.
Over to you…
Exercising sure seems painful and uncomfortable at the start. But it’s the one habit that is going to chisel out the best version of yourself. So, are you ready for this journey? Wish you luck from this side!
