The fresh air of the morning is itself a dose of medicine to us. The cool breeze re-energizes us. The lukewarm sunlight gives us ample vitamin D only in the morning. Rather than exercising, many of us feel it’s more important to do our daily chores because we cannot prioritize exercise and its importance in our life.
But remember, exercise at any time of the day is close, but no cigar compared to a morning exercise. Even an early morning walk can keep our body fitter than any other exercise we do during the other day. Don’t buy my words for an apple and an egg; read on to know about the top 10 benefits of morning exercise, and I am sure you will love doing your exercise in the morning after looking at these benefits.
10 Amazing Benefits of Morning Exercise
1. Increases Your Memory
According to a study published in ‘Perceptual and Motor Skills,’ an average person who exercises in the morning is expected to have 20 percent more memory than a person not doing any exercise. So, if you are improving your memory after just 30 minutes of exercise, why not do it, at least for your memory?
2. Increases Your Vocabulary
Are you surprised? Although learning a good vocabulary isn’t a piece of cake, a recent work published in ‘Neurobiology of Learning and Memory’ proves that a person doing intense exercise in the morning is expected to learn 20 percent more vocabulary than others.
3. More Focused on Your Work
Exercising during the morning increases our metabolic rate and re-energizes our body, which means you get permission to work more without getting tired. So, the body’s metabolism after morning exercise keeps you fresher and lets you focus on your work more than ever. This is proved by a recent work published in ‘The International Journal of Workplace and Health Management’ where it is stated that the people who exercise are 23 percent more productive than the other people.
4. Feel Good
Some morning exercises help our body release endorphins, which are our body’s feel-good hormones, and we don’t need to do a highly intense workout for this; a 15-minute workout is enough.
5. Overcome Your Cravings
According to a recent research work published in an international journal ‘Appetite,’ we can find that even a 15-minute workout is enough to lose our cravings for chocolates, nicotine, etc. Isn’t it good that even a mere walk is so fruitful?
6. Take Advantage of the Hormones
In the early morning hours, our hormones are at their peak so we can use that to make our body more fit and compact rather than exercising at any other time of the day.
7. Reduces Cancer Risk
India is one of the countries where the number of cancer patients is increasing at an alarming rate. Doing even a 15-minute exercise every morning increases your chance of avoiding cancer for your whole life. Even a work published in the journal ‘Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise‘ proves that women who exercise in the mornings reduce their chance by 55 percent of being affected by breast cancer.
8. Decreases Your Stress
‘American College of Sports Medicine’ published a work that says that morning exercises help us to increase certain brain cells, which has the ability to keep us stress-free. Being stress-free in the present world is like a gift from within because the chaos we go through in our daily lives makes it difficult to be free from stress.
9. Lose Your Rounded Pot
In a work published in a journal called ‘Obesity‘, we can see that only 80 minutes of workout every week prevents us from gaining visceral fat, which in turn reduces the chance of many stomach-related diseases we suffer nowadays, including the more common acidity. So, exercise even helps maintain the proper health of our stomachs healthily.
10. Improves Sleeping Quality
Doing morning exercise relaxes the muscles and stimulates our body, keeping the mind relaxed and giving us a peaceful sleep. Getting a peaceful sleep in this world full of stress is one of the rarest things we can get, so why not do a 15-minute morning exercise and get it easily?
Indians taught the values of the morning exercises like Surya namaskar etc., to the world. Exercise is for the benefit of our own body, then why are we willing to slap our own wrist rather than using 15 minutes of our morning to keep ourselves fit? Hopefully, you will all be ready to do your morning exercise by looking at the benefits. Remember the saying – “A healthy mind lives in a healthy body.”
