Research shows that running early in the morning can give you extra energy and keep your motivated throughout the day. However, it can seem challenging to get in the mood first thing in the morning to run. Here are some tips on how to add running to your daily routine.
Go to bed early:
Record your favorite television show and chose to get some extra rest. You will be more motivated to run in the morning if you’ve had a decent nights sleep. You’ll also feel more rested in the morning.
Put you alarm clock out of reaching distance:
If your alarm clock is across the room, you’re less likely to press the snooze button and go back to bed.
Plan for your run the night before:
Plan your entire run the night before so that you know how long your run will take and that you have time for it before your day starts. To start running as early as possible, lay out your clothes the night before.
These are three tips you can use for effectively starting a running routine first thing in the morning. You’ll be amazed at the change it will make in your life.
