Made one little adjustment in my morning workouts and can't believe how much difference it's made. Thanks to my inability to sleep and the following early morning gym visit, I realized that it's actually easier for me to get up 45 minutes earlier and head out to the gym. I think it has everything to do with sleep cycles. I was always in a deep sleep at the previous time I tried to get up and it was painful to pull myself awake.
After two mornings of getting up 45 minutes earlier I can say it's much easier for me to get up and out of the house. The best part is when I leave the gym it's still early and the world is still moving quietly and slowly. And I'm much more relaxed because I still have a full two hours before I have to be at the office - no rushing! I have to get to sleep a little earlier but that's okay, I'm actually a little more tired in the evening so I want to go to sleep and get to sleep easily. Exercise is supposed to contribute to getting a good night's rest. Good sleep is also associated with exercise so it's a win-win on all sides.
So if morning workouts are more of a dream than a reality, try experimenting with the time you get up by a few minutes one way or the other. It might make your morning wake up easier and give you more effective workouts, more peaceful mornings, a better nights sleep and that body that will make you oh so happy.
