Hi everyone! I love to workout in the morning! But it’s not always easy to just roll out of bed and get moving. So here is my reasoning on why it’s worth it to get up early…
Maybe you rise at 9am or 10am, and the idea of getting up at 7am is as appealing as belly flopping off the high dive. But why not give it a try for a few weeks and see if thats really the case?
For me, I have to set my workout clothes out the night before, that way I just roll out of bed and get dressed with as little thinking as possible. My brain is still asleep. I always eat something to kick start my metabolism, even if it’s just a little something like a piece of fruit! Then I try and get myself out of the house as quickly as possible! Wandering around the house in a mild stupor never helps my motivation.
Once I start my workout, I’m in for the long run. Even if I’m lagging a little at the start, it only takes a bit for the blood to start pumping and soon I’m in a totally different mood then when I started. By the end of the workout, even if I’m exhausted I feel great! I’m energized and refreshed, the light bulb in my brain is turned on, and I actually feel motivated to start my day! And it’s not even 9am!
We have all heard that exercising generates endorphins which in turn make you feel good. So if you start your day with a workout you are going to be in a better mood for the rest of your day which not only benefits you, but everyone else that’s around you!
So maybe start small, walk or ride your bike to go get a smoothie, progress to a short run, work it up to a solid workout; go for an early surf, take an X-Train class, come workout with an awesome EZIA coach! There’s millions of options out there for you! And if you're having trouble coming up with any come talk to me, I’d be happy to help!
You never know until you try. Maybe your motivation or positive energy will inspire somebody else! And who knows, we can all make the world a happier place!
