Early morning exercise can help you in many ways. You are about to learn the benefits of early morning exercise in detail.
Be More Productive Throughout the Day
Early morning exercise will get your brain juices flowing.
In some cases, increased mental activity was recorded for up to 10 hours following completion of exercise in controlled lab studies. So around 4:00 pm when everyone is tired from working, you will still be alert.
This means that you will be able to accomplish more in less time during your work day, whether it’s getting the kids out of the door or taking charge at the office.
Increase Your Metabolic Rate
Getting a sweat on early wakes you up mentally, studies have shown that exercising early in the morning (let us take morning to mean anywhere from 5 – 9 am) has the additional benefit of waking up your metabolism! In some cases, elevated metabolism for periods of up to 24 hours were recorded.
This means that simply by being proactive in the morning, you will burn more calories throughout your entire day. Furthermore, am exercise tends to diminish your appetite throughout the day; therefore, you will be taking in less calories while burning more.
There’s no better recipe for healthy weight loss.
Regulate Your Sleep Rhythm
Once you make working out in the morning a habit, your body becomes accustomed to getting up at the same time each day; furthermore, it will begin to get you ready to wake up on time, which means that you will awake feeling fully energized and alert. The more you do it, the more enhanced the feeling becomes. As you regulate your circadian sleep cycles, the feeling of confusion upon arousal from sleep due to wildly changing sleep times will vanish!
Lastly, by exercising early in the morning, you avoid the PM adrenalin rush that keeps PM exercisers from sleeping as well as they would otherwise. You will sleep better, wake up earlier, and feel better over the entire course of the day.
Build a Healthy, Consistent Exercise Routine
Learn to Motivate Yourself
There’s nothing like the feeling that comes from creating a plan, following it, and achieving your goals. By exercising early in the morning, you will strengthen your mental resolve as long as you keep at it.
Imagine being completely done with the day’s exercise before 7 am! The feeling of self empowerment that comes from being disciplined in your routine will bring mental strength into other areas of your life as well.
