Working out early eliminates excuses. While most of us know working out and other physical activities are extremely beneficial, few maintain a fitness routine. Commitment to working out early in the day eliminates excuses because besides sleeping, what else could you be doing at 5am? NADA.
4:55am: Set the alarm for 4:55 every morning. Keep your phone on the other side of the bedroom, which forces you to get up and out of the bed.
5am: On your feet getting ready for the gym. Throw on some gym clothes and shake up a pre-workout drink. Try not to waste any time and get out the door NOW.
5:30 – 6:30am: A solid hour in the gym is all it takes. Know exactly what you need to do each day before you get there; have workouts planned in advance. When you take the time to prep and plan, you have a much for effective and efficient workout.
7:00 – 8:30am: You have showered and are ready to attack the day by 7am. The next hour or so is your time to complete task on your to-do list, answer emails, brainstorm, write or read. Use this time to get all of the little things out of the way.
This is also a block of time when your phone won’t be buzzing. These distraction-free periods allow you to be very productive. How you use them is entirely up to you.
9:00am: The normal day starts. If you have taken full advantage of the previous two hours, this day will be stress free. Your days can become much more manageable because of that early morning block of time. So, why not use this time to have a productive day?
