Working out regularly is something a lot of us struggle with, but once you get in the habit… it’s probably something you’d always want to keep up with. While a lot of you might be working out every day, you probably did not know that burning those calories in the morning is actually better than doing it at any other time of the day. Here are 7 reasons why you should workout in the morning as opposed to an evening run or an afternoon at the gym!
It’s the first thing you do after you’re up and about. And once you get dressed in your active wear, you automatically set a goal to achieve. Be it lifting some weights, running a set number of kilometres or even trying a new aasan in your yoga routine! It could be anything small or big but achieving this goal will motivate you for the rest of the day!

When you hit the gym after a good night’s sleep. Your body is completely replenished, rejuvenated and fresh to take on any challenges. Be it lifting extra weights, running an extra mile or trying a new move… it is better to train in the morning when your energy levels are high and unspent than in the evenings.
A good exercise needs focus and once you achieve success in your workout, it sets your day off on a positive note! It helps you make better decisions and stay calmer in stressful situations!

If you push your exercise routine for the evening, you’ll have to plan your day accordingly. You can’t be free to do other fun things (a date night, a movie night or even hanging out with friends!) that you can otherwise do. This is another reason why a good morning workout regime is really a great way to start your day!
