I exercise first thing in the morning.
Or, more accurately…
I used to.
Waking up early is good.
Exercising is good.
Exercising in the morning is best.
Or, at least, that’s the dialogue that
Kept running through my mind.
So, I kept pushing out all
Opposing thoughts from my head.
As I slowly watched my productivity, energy & attitude
Go down the drain.
I wasn’t getting enough sleep.
Each morning I found myself racing around
Trying to pull myself together to get out of the house.
As good as exercise is,
Stress and lack of sleep are equally bad.
Which equated to one step forward,
Then two steps back.
I’ve since started exercising later in the day,
Which allows me time
To relax in the mornings
Ensures I get my much needed sleep.
I feel better –
Even though the shift was a small thing.
It was hard at first.
(My habit ran deep.)
But after a short time,
It became clear –
There are a lot of things I need to rethink.
