Do begin to love mornings you struggle to get your day started sometimes? Samantha Clayton shows us how to start on the right foot with a morning workout. You’ll again!

Healthier food choices

When you kick-start your day with exercise, there’s a good chance that you’ll make overall healthier food choices throughout the day. The morning is a time when people often reach for sugary, high fat, high carbohydrate foods, because they feel like these foods help them to wake up.

Get a workout energy boost

The natural energy boost that an exercise routine provides could save you from consuming so many unnecessary kilojoules. Many people I speak to say that they consciously prefer and choose fresh foods after they work out. A workout in the morning that gets your heart rate up and blood flowing can make you feel more alert and positive.

Beat the traffic

If you have to commute to work in rush hour traffic, consider joining a gym close to work. This will help you to use your time more constructively in the morning. Leaving home early to work out instead of sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic will not only help to improve your body, but the mental benefits and stress relief you may experience could greatly improve your mood. If you can’t join a gym, consider getting to work early and going for a walk.

I understand that during the summer months it’s much easier to adapt to a morning workout routine because it’s bright and inviting outside. During the winter months, I’ll admit that the temptation to stay in bed for an extra hour is much greater—even for a morning workout fan like me. This is why I’m trying to convince you to get started now with a healthy morning routine. If you can make a habit of doing an early workout over the next few weeks, then by the time winter rolls around you won’t want to quit.
