A Five-Minute Exercise to Do in the Morning for a Healthy Lifestyle
I go to bed every night promising myself that I’ll wake up really early and do a morning workout, but of course you know what really happens...I oversleep and I wake up really late for work with barely anytime left.
So instead of always feeling disappointed and not achieving anything, I decided to do a 5 minute morning workout every day, before I take a shower and get dressed.
They say a small habit can turn into a lifestyle, and this is what I'm trying to achieve here. Even if you’re always busy or running out of time, you can surely fit five minutes of a simple exercise into your morning routine. So, let’s see what this 5 minute morning workout is about...
