They will help you wake up and cheer you up: 8 exercises to do in the morning
Morning exercises are great for invigorating

The benefits of morning exercises have been known since childhood, but not everyone is ready to sacrifice 10-15 minutes of sweet sleep for exercise. Nevertheless, exercising in the morning is one of the best ways to boost vitality and improve fitness.

Lady.tochka.net writes about it.

Morning exercises help the body wake up faster and become more active after sleep, cheer up and set you up for active work during the working day. The initial duration of exercises can be 15 minutes, and then over time, you can increase it to 25-30 minutes.

The choice of exercises depends on your physical fitness, the amount of free time you have and how you feel. It is recommended to avoid strenuous strength exercises in the morning, as the body is not yet fully awake and ready for intense exercise. The main goal is to wake up, cheer up, and warm up.

Regular morning exercises will quickly turn into a pleasant and easy routine that will give you vigour and energy for the whole day.
