How to Work Your Way Up to Walking 10,000 Steps A Day

3 Morning Exercises to Start Your Day with a Bang

This is a guest post by Sarah Jacobs from Lea-p.com

Waking up early and doing a bit of exercises can help boost your overall mood and productivity all throughout the day. This is because exercising helps release happy hormones (serotonin) from your brain and can also improve blood and oxygen flow into your brain – making you more active and feeling positive for the day.

Going out for a walk or a short jog is the best kind of exercise in the morning because you get to breathe in the calm and fresh morning air, go around your community and entertain yourself with the outside view.

However, not everyone is lucky enough to live in a good neighborhood. If you are living in an apartment in the middle of the city for example, walking or jogging outside is not exactly an inspiring exercise with all the honking cars, busy pavements and unshaded concrete streets. There are however different exercises you can do inside the house – and these can also improve your mood and productivity too.
