One of the busiest times at the gym is in the morning. Do you know why?
Because a bunch of motivated people decided to drag themselves out of bed an hour earlier and set the tone for their day.
Sounds easier than it’s done, as the rest of us can attest 🙂
But whether you enjoy an early morning workout or hitting the gym after a long day at the office, working out is a great way to wake your body up.
Just like working out helps you wake up first thing in the morning, it can also help you escape from the monotony of the day and get the blood pumping!
Most of us could also use a wake-up call to get off our devices for a hour too, if we’re being honest. Technology is so intertwined into our lives that it can be a refreshing break to simply focus on your body without being interrupted by notifications.
For some people, they find going on a nice run to be a great form of relaxation. Others cringe at the sound of heavy breathing, and exercise like yoga or zumba might be more appealing. Regardless of how you choose to work out, you’ll feel better afterwards and your body and mind will thank you!
Try keeping a little journal of your stress levels during the week in relation to how often you work out or simply unplug. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results!
Setting reasonable goals for yourself is a great way to create accountability as well as give yourself that great feeling of checking something off your list.
And just to make your day a little better, here’s a reminder from Shia Labeouf for us all 🙂
