To get the benefits of a morning walk, of course you have to know how to motivate yourself to be active in the morning. Here are tips that you can try to be more diligent in the morning walk:
Make it a routine
One easy way to be more diligent in the morning is to make it a habit. Like, when you take public transportation to the office, stop before arriving in front of the office. This is done so that you have time to walk.
While listening to music
Listening to music or podcasts while taking a leisurely walk can also motivate you to be more enthusiastic about walking. In addition, music can give rhythm to the feet so that they move more steadily.
Take an interesting route
If you need motivation for a morning walk, choose an interesting route to take. For example, in cities or parks.
Fill the stomach before doing the morning walk
Morning walks become a pleasant healthy lifestyle. Before doing so, make sure you don’t go for a morning walk on an empty stomach. At least, fill your stomach with healthy snacks or drinks, to provide energy.
Some healthy snacks, which you can consume before doing your morning walk, are:
- Coffee milk
- Sugar free fruit juice
- Banana fruit
- Slice of toasted rye bread with peanut butter
- Fruit smoothies
- A small serving of oatmeal
After doing a morning walk, you can prepare a healthy breakfast. Also make sure not to go too far in eating breakfast, especially if you are trying to lose weight.
