1. Morning Exercise (+ FREE Video Workouts)

Morning exercise can change the tone for your entire day, even if the routine is only 10 - 15 minutes long. It is a proven way to prep for the day both physically and mentally, such as by:

  • Giving your brain more energy. According to some studies, a morning workout can be even more effective than coffee. 
  • Setting a healthier mindset for the entire day.
