We’re all super busy today. Preparing lunches. Dropping off the children. Heading to work. Meetings. Socialising. The list goes on and our calendars seem pretty booked up. This can also mean that we struggle to find time to workout in amongst it all. We know why it’s important to include it in our daily routine, but when is the best time of the day to exercise? There’s always a debate whether exercising in the morning is better than working out at night or vice versa. Well, the truth is that the best time to workout is whenever you can do it – regardless if it’s morning, lunchtime or evening. Here’s why.
Many studies show that an early morning workout before breakfast is the best way to kickstart your metabolism for the day. On the other hand, some experts cite that people who are exercising at night tend to experience different benefits.
That’s all well and good – but “ideal” times only exist if you’re sitting around with a free day. But what if you face a lot of time constraints and can’t stick to a definite morning or evening workout schedule? Is there really a best time to go to the gym or sign up for exercise classes?
The reality is that the time of day has little relevance to your own personal journey to improving your fitness and health. What’s most important is your consistency to squeeze in some exercise, no matter when it is.
After all, exercising any time is better than none at all.
So, to get the benefits of exercising, don’t wait for some ideal time. Just start doing it around your busy schedule instead. It’s by beginning with achievable goals, building good habits and developing a strong sense of discipline that you will start to see great results; and this is all possible when you make your exercise fit your timetable and not the other way around.
