Recent studies have shown that if you perform just five minutes of reasonably intense exercise in the morning you can potentially burn up to twice as many calories you normally would during the day!
What this means is that for those people who often claim "I don't have time!" there really is no excuse now for not doing five to ten minutes of physical training each day.
This is in reach of everyone!
There is no need for people to run five miles before breakfast. A healthier more focused you is within five minutes reach! Also there are other benefits of doing something physical upon rising in the morning. Breathing deeply and moving your body first thing not only allows you to burn more calories throughout the day but it also puts you in a better mood as well as obviously going a long way to providing yourself with better health.
In short, you will be more inclined to take the day by the "scruff of the neck", so to speak, and to want to pursue goals and objectives if you are fully awake and energised for the day.
Below are listed some of the major benefits of doing something active each morning. Remember them when you think it is "too much effort!".
1.Increased calorie burn throughout the day.
2.Higher energy levels.
3.Better health and fitness.
4.Due to point number three, a higher chance of living a longer more abundant life.
5.An increased likelihood that you will want to reach and achieve targets and ambitions in your life due to feeling positive and energised through exercise.
Remember, then, that success in fitness, or indeed in any area of life, is so often dictated by what you do (or do not do) each and every day for as little as five minutes at a time!
Develop daily positive habits where your health is concerned and see and feel your results soar!
