Movetober Tip #2 – Do it in the morning

If you have kids, and they sleep till ~7am in the morning, and you have a spouse/partner who leaves home after the kids have woken up … OR

If you don’t have kids …

Then the best time of day to MOVE is in the morning.

I have lost count of the number of times I have turned off the alarm clock and gone back to sleep thinking “I will do it this afternoon”. And then, for the whole day, I have this “THING” hanging over my head that I have to do in the afternoon.

After a full on day at work – while I have to admit the best thing I could do for my self and my mind is to head off and MOVE – it is the last thing I want to do.

So where possible, I suggest doing your thing in the morning. The longer you leave it over the course of the day, the more likely it is that you will be able to find a perfectly valid excuse NOT to do your thing!

And remember, there’s no excuses in Movetober! The challenge involves you doing your MOVE thing each and every day 🙂

And of course – this is just a tip. If you are a total afternoon MOVEr and have no dramas getting out and about at that time of day, totally ignore this tip!

When you MOVE in the morning, sometimes you get to see things like this!

Comments ... oh they do make my heart sing!

  1. I so wish I had some of those “ifs” back in my life – maybe not the one where I had no kids, but the one where a partner was around beyond 6.20am would be nice. I love to MOVE in the morning, and used to all the time in life BC, but can’t seem to get it done ANYTIME now unless it eats into work time.

    I even wish the house didn’t shake, so I could do a yoga workout in the morning before the munchkin wakes, but it seems that as soon as I am up, so is he – so I don’t get up! Or maybe that’s just my excuse…

  2. Ah nuts … but then, that means tomorrow’s post is for you Cath!
