Supercharge Your Exercise Routine (Easy!)
Already taking time out of your schedule to exercise? That’s FANTASTIC!
There are few things you can do that deliver such huge health benefits.
But when you do, you may as well get the BIGGEST health bang for your buck.
Researchers compared two groups of people who did the same amount of exercise—but one group had significantly more mental and physical improvements.
Here’s what you need to know to be in that group.
Exercise is great… but exercising OUTDOORS is even better.
For the study, one group of participants exercised indoors, while the other did their exercise out in nature, doing activities like hiking or biking.
People who exercised outdoors had greater improvements in…
- stress levels
That may sound surprising at first. But there are some good reasons why.
First is the uneven terrain. Exercising outdoors can engage different muscle groups and provide a more challenging—and profitable—workout.
Exercising outdoors ALSO loads you up with vitamin D, which is critical for strong bones and an even stronger immune system.
Schedule that session for early morning as the sun rises, and you can boost those benefits even further.
Because spending time outdoors at sunrise is by far the best way to set your circadian rhythm for the day.
You likely have heard of your circadian rhythm because of its role in ensuring sound sleep. But the truth is, getting your internal clock lined up with the sun’s rhythm is critical for EVERY aspect of your health.
Earlier research confirms a well-balanced circadian rhythm plays a critical role in…
- balancing hormones,
- preventing diabetes,
- boosting heart health,
- and maintaining a healthy weight.
Plus, studies show that morning sunlight helps prevent insomnia and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) by increasing serotonin levels.
If you’re going to take the time to exercise—and you should—you may as well get the MOST for your time by doing it in the great outdoors.
P.S. Is MORE exercise BETTER? Researchers recently asked that question, and you might be surprised by the answer.
