Tips To Exercise in the Morning If You Aren’t a “Morning Person”

Morning Exercise

Exercising first thing in the morning has many benefits, including the following: fewer distractions, it can help you feel energized throughout the day and it leaves your evenings free to do as you please.

But if you are more tempted to snooze in the mornings than wake up and exercise, you are not alone. Many people find the idea of morning workouts challenging!

If you are not a “morning person” but like the idea of starting your day with a workout, this advice from Dr V. Kuzinkovas of Advanced Surgicare may help.

Start Simply

There is no rule that says a workout only counts if it is done at a gym with expensive equipment. Shift your idea of what exercise is, and start simply. That could involve taking a brisk walk around the neighborhood or following a YouTube video in your living room. Once you’ve become more accustomed to early workouts, you can start going to the gym or a boutique fitness studio.

Find an Accountability Partner

Finding a friend or workout buddy holds you accountable; you are less likely to skip a workout if you know someone is waiting for you. You may also find that you work out harder with a companion than if you were to exercise alone.

Do What You Love

You are more inclined to stick with workouts if you enjoy them. Don’t force yourself to run or lift weights if it makes you unhappy. You may prefer swimming laps, cycling or practicing yoga. Aerobic dancing is another great option if you dislike the more traditional forms of exercise. Try new types of movement until you find something you can look forward to.

Make It Easy to Get Up and Ready

Many morning exercisers swear the key to early workouts is to get organized and prep the night before. Lay out your clothes ahead of time so you won’t get held up looking for a lost sock and end up foregoing your workout altogether. You can also prepare by filling a water bottle and programming the coffee maker.

Get Plenty of Sleep

Don’t compromise your sleep for early morning workouts. Assume your body works best after seven to eight hours of sleep, and adjust your bedtime accordingly. Everyone has the occasional night of poor or restless sleep, but make sure a chronic lack of sleep does not affect your health or safety during intense workouts.
