    Test your alertness and focus. You can do a much better and thorough workout when you are focused and alert and morning is one of the best times to exercise because your body has rested from a full night’s sleep and it is in an energized state. Doing exercise in the evening may be difficult because your body is tired from a day’s work and you tend to be less focused on the exercise at hand. Give morning exercise a try to see how you feel:
    • For starters, try to get a brisk walk for ten minutes after you get out of bed
    • As the week progresses, do more strenuous exercises like running or biking too.
    • See how you are faring by the end of the week. You will probably find that doing some exercise in the morning is a far better energy booster than your regular cup of caffeine.

    Assess your sleeping patterns after doing morning exercise for a week. When you exercise in the evening, your body is fatigued, but after a workout your endorphins are pumping and you suddenly regain a burst of energy that may last a few hours. Owing to this renewed energy, you may find that you will have trouble getting to sleep. However, with a morning routine, you get your initial burst of energy to last you throughout the day. By the end of the day your body unwinds into a more relaxed state and you will find that you can go to bed earlier to get a full night’s rest before your exercise routine for the next morning. Try it out and you will find yourself sleeping earlier at night and waking up rested and recuperated for a workout that will re-energize you again.
