Even if you love your job, kids, husband, or cat, sometimes it can be difficult to find the motivation to throw off the covers and get out of bed in the morning. We’ve put together some exercises to wake you up (gently, of course) and get you ready to face the day.
Nothing to ferocious for your first big movement of the day. Stand with your feet apart, arms straight out, palms down, and make 20 circles (first forward, then backward) in the air.
Wake up your obliques before you even leave the bedroom! Make a 90 degree angle with your right arm and brace yourself either against the floor or your bed. You should look like a triangle, and you’re working the frame around your abs! Hold in place 30-60 seconds, then switch sides.
Exercising in the morning is not only a great way to wake up, but also to start the day off knowing you’ve already got a positive accomplishment under your belt!
