Doing sports in the morning has many advantages: You crank up your metabolism directly at the beginning of the day and benefit from the afterburning effect hours later. That brings you the necessary power for an energetic start to the day. You can concentrate fully on the job or the university, you are in a good mood and motivated. And best of all, the evening is yours, because your daily workout has already been done today. Nevertheless, waking up, getting up and jumping right into the sports clothes is often not that easy.
Preparing yourself for the battle in the morning.
Pack your work bag the night before and put the things you want to wear in the morning for sports and work, get out. Especially your sports clothes should be close at hand next to your bed, because you should still be able to jump in with your eyes closed. If you usually have a snack or lunch to work with, prepare the evening before. All the ingredients for your breakfast after workouts should be at hand whenever possible. This will save you a maximum amount of time in the morning that you can use for your workout.
Momentum should be right in morning with your playlist
Do you know the effect that your favorite music has on your body? Sometimes you just have to groove, whether you like it or not. It’s exactly this effect that you use to breathe life into your sluggish body in the morning. Make a playlist for this purpose. It’s best to wake up with the right songs. The rest goes almost by itself.
Reward yourself for doing sports every morning
Regular (daily) workouts do not remain without effect. You will feel better and fitter overall. Be aware of this transformation and enjoy your progress. In addition, you should also regularly reward yourself for your efforts to motivate you tomorrow morning. It’s best to create a list of pleasures that you use to write down things that you like doing, but that are often neglected in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Enjoy the slow, but sure wakefulness
In the morning, do not overtax your tired and stiff muscles and the circulation. Gradually increase the load. Figure out what’s good for you and your body in the morning and fun. Even if the first bright sun rays or the bright light in the gym hurt your sleepy eyes, enjoy how slowly your spirits awake. Almost by itself. You do not have to do anything for it. Then, when you’re through with your workout, you’re the most alert I can be. Ideal conditions for a great start to an even better day.
In all likelihood you will have to get up a bit earlier than usual, despite the evening preparation. So you do not miss this time at night, you should go to bed in time. You need at least seven hours of sleep to be fit and fit during the day, especially if you do sports every day. Give your body this important, nocturnal regeneration time. So you do not sleep your workout, you should definitely set an alarm clock. The best place to place the alarm is out of reach, so you’ll definitely have to get up to show it off.
Motivate yourself for the upcoming morning
To make it work in the morning and to stay lying is not an option, it helps if you know someone else is counting on you. So you have to get up, because of course you do not want to leave your workout buddy hanging, just as you do not want to be left hanging. In addition, a workout with two makes a lot more fun. And, to be honest, the time and energy you need to say goodbye to your workout buddy can also be used to put on your sports gear and go out.
Eat a little snack before the sport
Even if you are not hungry so early in the morning, you should have a snack before you start your early workout. It’s not about squeezing out a full breakfast. Eat half a banana or piece of toast with jam or peanut sauce. This little snack is hugely important to boost your metabolism and give you the energy needed for your workout. In addition, you avoid so that during your workouts an unpleasant, gnawing hunger feeling emerges. Also remember to drink a glass of water with the snack before you start. Do not drink too much. This can sometimes lead to unpleasant abdominal pain in the morning.
