10-Minute Must-Do Sunrise Workout

 

We’ve all heard it, and we all know from experience, our mornings help set the pace for the day. If your morning starts off in a rush, it can set everything off course. So we’ve got a great 10-minute morning exercise routine that’s sure to get your blood flowing and your mind ready to tackle anything that comes along. But first, here are a few tips to getting your morning off to a perfect start.

1. Make your bed

Much like exercise, making your bed is a keystone habit. Studies show that people who make their beds in the morning generally have a greater sense of well-being and are in more control of their spending habits.

If that isn’t enough to convince you, watch this AWESOME speech by a Navy Seal on why you should.

2. Find your ritual

Everybody needs a ritual that keeps every day starting off on the right foot. Mine is that I like to make a cup of coffee using the pour-over method on my Chemex. It stops time for me, forces me to slow down, and makes a dang good cup.

3. Eat breakfast in silence

Put the phone down and eat in silence. You’ll have time to catch up on Trivia Crack later. For now, let your mind rest and enjoy your breakfast with no distractions.

4. Make a Top 5

Organize your day by thinking of the five most important things to do. My advice is to make sure that they’re relatively easy but important tasks, so that you can feel a greater sense of accomplishment when you get them done.

5. Do THIS workout routine

For this routine, focus on slowly contracting the muscles. Don’t rush it. We are not trying to kill you on this one; we just want to increase blood flow and activate your muscles.
