6 Ways to Transition to Morning Workouts

Considering morning workouts? Many find that exercising in the morning energizes and focuses them for the day ahead. However, adopting this habit can be challenging. These six steps will help you prep for morning workouts to ease the transition.

Schedule It. Mark your workout time on your schedule or calendar app. This visual reminder helps mentally commit to the task, increasing the likelihood of follow-through.

Prep Your Gear. Avoid morning stress by preparing your workout clothes, shoes, and accessories the night before. Having everything ready eliminates the need to scramble for items and sets a positive tone for your workout.

Choose a Gentle Alarm. Opt for a cheerful alarm tone instead of harsh buzzing or beeping. An energetic song can wake you up with a positive vibe. Place your alarm clock or phone across the room to prevent snoozing and encourage getting out of bed.

Avoid Late Snacking. Refrain from eating or snacking right before bed. Consuming food too close to bedtime can disrupt sleep. Aim to have your last meal or snack at least two hours before bedtime to promote restful sleep.

Plan Breakfast. After your workout, you may be tempted to indulge in unhealthy breakfast options or rush through meals. Plan a nutritious breakfast to avoid last-minute temptations. Consider preparing breakfast items in advance or packing a healthy meal to eat on the go.

Prioritize Sleep. Stick to a consistent bedtime to ensure you get enough rest. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. Avoid procrastination and distractions before bedtime to promote restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
