Embracing the time of day to exercise

Did you know the time of day your exercise impacts your health?

Studies confirm Individuals who exercise in the morning spend longer in REM Deep sleep than other individuals exercising at different times of day. It all seems to do with resetting the hormone cortisol – setting it at the right time with the right amount. The morning exerciser seems to have an advantage point – Most I say because it requires hormone testing to see where your cortisol is at. If your cortisol is low in the morning, but higher toward the end of the day – it suggests there may be sleep issues as the hormone plays with your sleep patterns. If its high in the morning and lower at night, you'll exercise great and sleep best at night.

Morning exercisers seem to experience e a wide range of benefits ranging from 25% reduction in blood pressure, deactivation of flight/fight schedule meaning a calmer person, a calmer digestion absorbing many more nutrients. And it doesn’t end there….
