Shower Before Your Workout
When your life get crazy-busy, scheduling exercise in the morning makes it less likely to slide off the to-do list: You’ll get it in before your day starts snowballing. Not a morning person? Set out your clothes and program the coffeemaker at night. When the alarm goes off, jump in the shower for 30 seconds—not to wash up, but to wake up—and then move on to your workout. Shower as usual afterward. “It’s going to kick off your day in a good way, and the choices throughout your day are going to be a lot easier to make,” says fitness expert Amie Hoff, cofounder of fitkit.com.
