20 Immediate Changes That Will Improve Your Health

Just get it over with: Exercise in the morning instead.

Not many people feel excitement at the prospect of working out. In fact, most people dread it, but being the responsible adults we are, we realize we have to just suck it up and exercise if we want to stay healthy (or at least avoid becoming overweight). Granted, there are people out there who genuinely enjoy working out, and some claim to have an addiction to it! But for the rest of us, it’s a chore, made all the more annoying when trying to fit it in somewhere on the daily schedule.

Difficult though it may be to hear, the morning is actually one of the best times to work out. It’s right at the start of the day, so there are fewer scheduling conflicts. Health-wise, exercising in the morning has been linked to building muscle more efficiently, reducing the risk of diabetes, and improving sleep. Even waking up 20 minutes earlier for a quick workout or cardio session will make a huge difference in how you feel throughout the day. There are many other benefits as well, so put aside your moaning and groaning and make your mornings active!
