The Benefits Of Working Out Early

There's just something about waking up early and getting that workout in before anyone else is up that's satisfying to the soul. 

I've been waking up at 5am since January 1st 2017. Yes, It was a New Years Resolution and here I am over 2 years later still sticking to it. 

On Monday's I go for a long run. I run through the streets and coutryside and see pretty much nobody. The street lights are on, It's still dark, I've got my headphones in and I'm pretty much just putting in the work. 

It's a great feeling. 

Not only that - I finish early. Usually my workouts are completed by around 6:30am - I'm home, I shower and I'm ready for my day by 7am. The psychological edge that gives me is great. Most people are just waking up at that time - Meanwhile I've got my workout in - Listened to some personal development (podcasts, audiobooks, speeches, meditative music on repeat)  and showered all in that dead time. 

I used to always be an evening workout guy and once I made the switch - I have no idea how I ever was that! 

I'm stronger than before, I'm more disciplined to get things done and I'm in far better shape too. Plus - My mental strength has increased greatly! 

So - If you've ever been thinking about it, I urge you to give it a shot. Not for a week - For a full month. It's easy to give up in the first week, but by that one month point - You'll be hooked. 

Get ahead of the day,
