If you’re not an early bird,
a morning workout probably sounds miserable. But if you’re looking to
lose weight, an early workout could be just what you need. A 2010 study
published by The Journal of Physiology found that “fasted training is
more potent than fed training to facilitate adaptations in muscle and to
improve whole-body glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity during a
hyper-caloric, fat-rich diet.” What does that mean? It means working out
before breakfast on an empty stomach can help you shed a few extra
pounds. If you get enough sleep, a morning workout can also energize you
throughout the day.
CHANNEL YOUR INNER LAMA
Start your day with a quick meditation.
The Mayo Clinic recommends meditation as a way to reduce
anxiety, stress and tension. Just five or 10 minutes of meditation when
you wake up can lower your stress, reduce your likelihood of pain
associated with headaches, and decrease your negative emotions.
We suggest the following two forms of meditation for beginners:
• Guided meditation:
Picture a place you find peaceful and relaxing, such the
beach in Hawaii or the mountains in Colorado, and try to put yourself
there. What do you hear? What do you smell? How do you feel?
• Mantra meditation:
Choose a word you find peaceful and calming and repeat it in your head.
STACK IT UP
Do your most important work before lunch.
Although everyone’s productivity peak
varies throughout the day, research from Harvard Business Review found
that on average, employees’ peak levels of alertness steadily increase
once they begin working, decline after lunch and hit a low at 3 p.m.
We recommend stacking the day’s most meaningful
tasks—the big projects and important phone calls—early in the day, so
you can leave more mindless tasks, such as responding to emails and
having weekly staff update meetings, for the afternoon.
