Waking up before midday on a weekend might sound like a humorous joke to you, however it can be the best way to start your day and leave you feeling ignited with energy for the new day ahead. Personally I love nothing more than starting the day with some form of exercise and it can really relieve any stresses. If you’re still looking for answers why getting up at the crack of dawn is for you then keep on reading.
Start your day off well
Instead of waking up feeling groggy and lacking energy, getting straight out of bed and into the outside world will leave you ready for whatever the day throws at you!
Live your best life
I am sorry but I feel that exercise can give you a feeling that nothing else does, and If you feel this at the start of the day, you will be sure to carry that with you the rest of the day and you might even be tempted to swap out that burger for a salad at lunch (not guaranteed!)
Listen to music
Yes you thought you could escape it this week, but no, the ABBA obsession continues! Music is my motivator on a morning, simply to hear Swedish legends before anyone else that day provides more than enough motivation for me. Plus you can sing your heart out, and there will not be a soul who judges.
Use every moment
If my time at the charity has taught me anything, it is how precious time is and how valuable your loved ones are. Waking up early and running while everyone’s asleep means you can spend the rest of the day with the people who make you happy.
Get a head start
I’ll let you in on a secret, even Mo Farah has a lie in (that probably isn’t true, don’t take my word for it) so get ahead of him! It means you can spend more time running than the person who will be standing next to you at the start line and get an even better finishing time.
