3 Exercises You Should Do Every Morning According To Experts

There are lots of studies that show if you do some exercise in the morning, you will be in a better mood all day long. You will have more energy and you will certainly be a better colleague, friend or partner. One psychologist at Duke University has researched the effects of exercise on depressed patients, and he has concluded that exercise has a definite role in treating this condition and has an important role in preventing people from relapsing. Exercising every morning is important because they help offset the toll that working on a computer, or even a mobile device takes on your body. Specifically, that toll is poor posture, which frequently leads to neck, shoulder, and back pain. The more frequently you perform these moves, the better.

Go for a walk, or a Run; This is better done outside so that you can connect with nature but running inside on a treadmill is almost as good. You can time yourself and increase length and time according to your fitness program. Always have new goals to reach, start with brisk walking and work up to running. The health benefits are considerable, you can build stronger bones and you can help to maintain your weight.

Active Squat (5x); Spread your feet just wider than your hips and point your toes straight ahead. Extend your arms directly in front of you, palms down. Drop your hips into the squat but keep your pelvis rolled forward so that there’s a small arch in your back, this arch is crucial. Slowly return to standing. Squats are one of my favourite exercises, especially in the morning. They help improve mobility while working the ligaments and connective tissue. Squatting can also aid in joint support.

Jumping Jacks; Michelle Obama is a great fan of this exercise and has become. They are great for cardiovascular health and also for toning muscles especially the calves and the deltoids. Stand with feet together. Jump while spreading your arms and legs. Return to first position and keep going! You can start with doing these for 1 minute and then gradually build-up to the number you are comfortable with.
