This might be a timely bit of info for you on a Friday considering that after what may well have been a long week, you found it a bit harder to get out of bed this morning.
And especially so if you are ‘morning challenged’.
By that I mean you just don’t function well when you have to get up early.
You may work late, or you may have been up with the kids during the night, so it can be understandable for some.
I found an article that may help.
‘The False Promise Of Morning Routines‘ mentioned how people are often guilted into starting or committing to a morning routine by what they perceive as the norm.
Via social media or celebrities or big business owners who post their morning routine as a bit of a humble brag.
You know what I mean?
Well if this gets you down just thinking about how someone’s seemingly perfect life looks compared to yours, here’s something to cheer you up.
You don’t have to do it!
Sure, for some people it may work best to get up and early and get their exercise routine in before the kids are up and the day has started.
For some that’s a definition from hell and only goes to turn them off the idea.
So don’t do it.
I was asked recently via a private message when the best time of the day to work out is.
I said whenever you’ll do it.
It may seem like a smart ar$ed response, but think about it. There’s no point in me telling you to work out in the morning and to come and join our early morning groups if you are not going to stick to it.
For some people, they’re better getting their workout in during the middle of the day as it breaks up their day.
And for some it may work better in the evening after the kids have gone to bed.
Sure sometimes it may go astray, as it sometimes does for the regular morning workout person when they get caught up late or the kids are sick or whatever.
So it really doesn’t matter.
And the point is to find sometime that works for you.
So long as you’re doing something. And you’re doing it more times than you’re cancelling.
With all of that in mind, don’t fall in the trap of trying something that simply doesn’t work for you and your daily cycle.
Cause it won’t last. No matter how well meaning you may be.
Stick with something you know that will work.
And if it’s a lunch time thing, I can help you there.
I have a personal training vacancy on Tuesday and Thursday between 11:30-12pm at Observatory Hill in the city.
Fill in your details here and we can arrange a quick chat that will work out what you want and whether we can make something work together.
If you’re looking for after work or evenings, sorry I can’t help you out there. That’s family time.
But I’m happy to help with any advice on getting you started.
