Morning Exercises Feel Great
It’s very easy to fall into the habit of waking up late on the weekends. After all, you have just worked 5 days in a row, and the last thing that you want to do is force your body into some annoying exercise routine. But waking up early to exercise actually feels quite amazing, once you actually get going with it.
The thing with sleeping in on the weekends is that you feel rested, but it’s a different kind of feeling than exercising early in the morning. When you wake up late, you have the tendency to lay around the house and maybe just relax on your couch; your mind continues to want to rest.
But when you force yourself to wake up early on the weekends in order to exercise, you feel tired at first when you wake up, but afterwards, you feel amazing just in time for lunch. Incorporate a yummy lunch to go with it, and your afternoon is set up nicely for enjoyment. And then it’s time to enjoy your evening as well!
It feels much different to exercise in the morning than in the afternoon. In the afternoon, you still feel good after a nice workout, but you kind of also feel a little tired, considering that you just spent half or more of your day doing things. When you get home from exercising, you kind of just want to relax and maybe even stay in for the evening.
When you exercise in the morning, you feel great up until midday, and then you also have the option of recovering with a nap. It honestly depends on how you like to set up your day: either early morning exercises with relaxation up until the evening, or morning and midday relaxation with exercising in the afternoon or evening.
It comes down to preference. But the important thing is that you are exercising! What are your thoughts?
