An early morning workout offers us many benefits, both to our health and to our mind. Exercising in the morning is a great start as it triggers happy hormones, which makes your day peaceful and joyful.
The best time for someone to workout is whenever works for them. But starting your day with a good workout have some advantages over the workout at the end of the day.
Here are seven benefits of morning workouts that might convince you to start exercising as the first thing!
1. Makes you active all day long:
Getting a morning workout also inspires you to keep moving through the rest of the day. Cambridge University researchers also found that people who work out in the morning end up being more active in general.
2. Increases metabolic rate:
Exercising on the empty stomach can burn excess calories which in turn activates your metabolism. British Journal of Nutrition study found that exercising on an empty stomach is good. It burns as much as 20 percent more fat from the first meal after exercise.
3.Lower your blood pressure:
In a study out of Appalachian State University, researchers asked study participants to hit the treadmills for 30 minutes at three different times of day: 7 a.m, 1 p.m, and 7 p.m. Those who worked out in the morning reduced their blood pressure by 10 percent, a dip that continued all day and lowered even more to 15% at night. Most heart attacks occur in the early morning, so the researchers suggest that morning exercise may serve as a preventative measure.
4. You’ll sleep better at night:
Better sleep is one of the many well-studied benefits of morning workouts. The National Sleep Foundation says while evening workouts can boost the body’s temperature and stimulate the body, which can make falling asleep more difficult, working out in the morning leads to deeper, longer, and higher-quality sleep when you finally hit the pillow.
5. Your hormones are working to your advantage:
In the early morning hours, crucial hormones (i.e., testosterone) that help build muscle mass are elevated in the body. By exercising in the morning, you’re taking advantage of these naturally circulating hormones as they’re peaking, rather than later in the day when they’re lower.
Early morning exercise increases your ability to focus on the day ahead. This is because exercise improves blood circulation to the brain. It helps to improve memory and thinking. Exercise indirectly improves mood, sleep and reduces stress and anxiety. Problems in these areas can indirectly interrupt focus.
7.Improves your mood:
Exercise boosts endorphins which are also known as happy hormones. These increase following exercise leaving you with a happy mood that will generally last for the rest of your day.
Many homemakers struggle to know exactly what exercises to try (and how to perform them correctly). The good news is, with the right healthy diet plan, targeted basic exercises, consistency and a splash of determination. you can be on the way to exercise.
