Choosing the right time of the day to work out is way simpler than you think, and it might be the key to staying consistent with your fitness workouts.
Take into account a few key factors and you will have a routine that will give you longevity and consistency with your new active lifestyle.
Energy levels have a lot to do with what time of the day will suit you to work out.
You might be more energetic at 5am so it would make sense to utilise your extra energy early in the morning.
Your work-life balance might be challenging and you might be fitting your workouts around your working hours. However, don’t forget that this can be a risky method.
It is far too easy to make your work more important than your personal healthy lifestyle, and before you even know it, your workouts will be taking a back seat to your work.
I suggest that you make your workouts a priority and make a point of doing them before work, during a lunch break or after work.
Family comes first and it’s important to schedule your workouts and active lifestyle to suit your partner and children.
Doing your workout early in the morning before the family wakes and demands your time might be easier for you.
Or another great idea is to encourage your family to join you and all go together after school and/or working hours.
Find activities that you all enjoy doing together and make it fun.
Remember that long-term results come from consistency, and if the timing of your workouts help you with staying consistent, then I suggest continuing on the same routine that is already working for you.
Your body will respond to activity benefits at all times of the day and no exercise session is ever a wasteful one, so start thinking about what time of the day your workouts will work best for your lifestyle.
