SHOULD I EXERCISE IN THE MORNING OR AT NIGHTS?

The decision to exercise in the morning or evening can depend on personal preference and schedule. However, morning exercise can provide many health and mental benefits, such as enhancing alertness and energy for the day, improving sleep quality, and boosting immunity. On the other hand, evening exercise can help reduce stress and fatigue after a day of work, while also building endurance and resilience. However, if exercising too late in the evening, it can affect your sleep. Therefore, to determine whether morning or evening exercise is better for you, you should consider your schedule and choose the most suitable time to maximize the benefits of exercising for your health and well-being. CarePlus shares some information in the hope of partially answering readers' questions on this issue!

SHOULD I EXERCISE IN THE MORNING OR AT NIGHTS?

💥 Nowadays, exercising is being talked about more in conversations, sharing sessions, and appearing more frequently in newspapers. People have become more aware of exercising and improving their health, and it is undeniable that this is truly a beneficial activity for health. However, in addition to paying attention to the movements and diet, the time of day to exercise is also a concern and a question for many people.

Here are some information that CarePlus has compiled, which may be useful in answering some of your questions

The body's biological clock

The body's biological clock will determine whether you are a "night owl" or an early bird. These biological rhythms affect the body's functions such as blood pressure, body temperature, hormone levels, or heart rate, all of which play an important role in determining whether your body is ready to exercise or not.
Using the body's biological clock to know when to exercise, walk, or go to the gym is a good idea, but you will have to consider external factors such as work schedule, family, and free time.

Characteristics of morning exercise

Experts believe that if you are having difficulty establishing a routine, then the morning may be the best time to exercise. The reason is that if you exercise in the morning, you will not be under time pressure, nor will you be distracted by daily work, which helps you maintain a regular exercise routine.
Exercising in the morning also stimulates the body to release endorphins, which boost motivation and help people work more productively and healthily. However, it is important to note that the temperature is usually low in the early morning, so you should spend a few minutes warming up before starting the exercises.

Characteristics of midday exercise

Contrary to those who are enthusiastic in the morning, some people prefer to spend time exercising their whole body after work. They feel that their body works most actively and effectively from midday onwards, and consider this to be the best time to exercise.
According to a study, the body temperature of humans increases throughout the day, with the highest temperature reaching between 2-6 hours. This means that if you exercise during this time, your body will be more active and the exercise will be more effective.

In conclusion, the best time to exercise depends on each person's individual needs and schedules. You should choose the time that suits you best and fits into your daily routine. Remember to also pay attention to your body's signals, such as fatigue or lack of energy, and adjust the exercise accordingly.

Characteristics of evening exercise

Many people prefer to exercise in the late afternoon or evening, as this is when the heart rate and blood pressure are at their lowest, reducing the risk of injury while improving exercise performance (especially for high-intensity workouts such as HIIT or running on a treadmill).

🔎 However, if you exercise your entire body right before bedtime, it becomes a problem. Health experts have studied that the body always needs a certain amount of time to prepare for sleep. During this time, the heart rate and body temperature gradually shift to a restful and relaxed state, making it easier for you to fall asleep. Exercising or eating too late will disrupt this cycle, as they increase your heart rate and body temperature. It's no surprise if you have trouble sleeping after doing a few exercises before.

So when is the best time to exercise?

In reality, there is no specific "best" time to exercise, as it depends on each person's physical condition and needs. The effectiveness of exercising depends on the type of training you choose and your level of commitment to them.

Here are some health expert suggestions for you:

🌟 You can start by finding the most suitable exercise time for yourself: Experts recommend that you try exercising at different times of the day. Exercise in the morning for a few weeks, then try midday, and then afternoon. You don't have to be a biological rhythm expert to determine the best time to exercise. Use your body to feel which time makes you the most comfortable to exercise. At the same time, consider the type of exercise and the appropriate duration of exercise for yourself.

🌟 Establishing an exercise routine: To create a regular exercise habit, you can schedule your workouts at the same time every day. Whether you choose to exercise in the morning, during lunchtime, or after work, make it a part of your daily routine and commit to completing it at the highest level possible.

🌟 Although the answer to when is the best time to exercise is not very clear, the reality is that exercise is very important, no matter when you do it during the day. What you should do is find a suitable exercise time for your biological rhythm and activity schedule, and then establish a habit of doing it. By maintaining exercise at the same time every day, you can achieve the desired results.

🌟 This is also a way to keep your body in shape, maintain good health, and prevent many common illnesses. Therefore, no matter how busy you are, you should set aside a certain amount of time each day to exercise.
