What are the three truly amazing benefits of a morning routine?
Last time I was speaking about drinking more water, and now it’s time to talk about the movement. Why is it essential for our bodies to exercise in the morning?
Let’s clarify it. I am not talking here about heavy workout at the gym or running long distances every day, as I am not doing it myself. However, if you do it already, that’s amazing and keep going!
By exercise in the morning, I mean a simple and easy to do for everybody, like a warm-up, which will increase your pressure and improve blood circulation and oxygenation. The everyday routine will have a positive impact on your mood and concentration. Also, it will speed up your metabolism and burn more calories during the day, even if you sit behind the desk.
When you have a positive morning, you are productive all day.
Based on my experience, I strongly believe that you will get the first valuable achievement in your daily records if you start your day well. Definitely, it will influence the next days, and then it will positively impact the weeks. Positive weeks will turn in to excellent months, and excellent months will transform into fantastic years. Fantastic years are nothing but wonderful life. But, funny enough, it all starts with what you do at the beginning of the day. The rest will roll like a snowball.
What are the benefits of morning training?
1. Boosting your energy levels. Thanks to increasing your blood pressure from the first place, you will have way more power during the day, and maybe you will not need to drink three coffees in the morning to start a day?
2. Building your discipline. Let’s be honest when you accomplish the morning exercises, it will strongly impact all your tasks during the day. You will be organized, stay focused to follow the chosen strategy. In other words, even simple movement makes us more productive.
3. Improving your health. Our body has two essential systems for our well-being. The first one is the circulatory system, which has its pump, the heart. The second one is a lymphatic system that, unfortunately for us, has not its pump, and it is responsible for expelling all types of bacteria that accumulate in the lymph nodes from our body. Any, literally any, movement helps this system work well and makes lymph circulate better in our body. As a consequence, you are a healthier person, and you get sick, or you catch a cold less often, you do not suffer from headaches, and on top of that, you have better immunity.
What kind of exercises to do in the morning?
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. You can compose a simple set of squats, push-ups, crunches, slopes, light stretching, and so on. Exercises that you once learned at PE in the school are good enough to start.
Personally, I love doing yoga. It helps me to focus and calm down as it reduces the cortisol levels in my body, and at the same time, I feel energized and ready to start the day with a positive mindset. Then I spend some time at my acupressure mat, which likewise keeps my blood flowing, increases oxygenation of cells, and releases endorphins all day. Also, I enjoy using the cross trainer while watching my favorite series or walking, surrounded by nature.
If you would like someone to guide you through your training, type “morning workout at home” on YouTube, and choose two or three videos, don’t spend too much time on searching. Start with small steps, and routine should not be longer than 15 minutes. The whole point is to train your brain that you exercise in the morning. That’s all.
What if you don’t find the time?
Well, let’s be honest, it might happen, because of several different reasons. There are many unexpected circumstances at work, or you will go to the conference or delegation in another city. Also, you may face difficult situations at home, your child may need more attention this day with the homework, or you have a newborn in the house, and so on. On top of that during the year, there are many moments like Easters, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, birthdays, weddings, and holidays, during which we tend to let go of our good resolutions.
That’s why we need to have prepared micro training for difficult days like these. Prepare the minimum plan of your morning workout not to lose the rhythm and routine. Without hesitation, you will notice that it will be way easier for you to get back on track when the hard days pass, so don’t give up at any stage! Besides that, you will mark in your worksheet that you made the plan halfway, which is better than not doing it at all.
Write in the worksheet you downloaded and printed:
“After drinking water in the morning, I do my everyday workout routine for at least 15 minutes to start a day.”
Only keep in mind to start with small steps if you don’t have a lot of experience in doing sport. If you overdo it, then you will feel tired, and your day might be less productive. If you already exercised in the morning, don’t forget to mark all past days in your tracker. In a couple of days, you will notice an increase in your productivity and focus.
