Hi! I'm Fabiana, and I'm a person who — shockingly — loves working out. I use it as a stress reliever at the end of a long and hectic day.
But after the pandemic set in last year, I wanted to try to become more of a morning person — especially when it comes to working out. For me, I've found that really helps set the tone for the rest of the day.
With the current WFH circumstances, it's very easy for me to roll out of bed and log on for work, groggy and grumpy. Right now, if I don't get my workout out of the way *before* my work day begins, I know I'll most likely come up with an excuse to skip it come nighttime.
So for nearly the past year, I've been doing some trial and error to figure out how I can change my routine to consistently work out first thing, even though I'm not naturally a morning person. Here are a few tips that have helped me the most!
(*And quick note that these habits and tips aren't meant to be universal — since everyone is different. Still, I wanted to share my full experience in hopes that some or all of it would be useful!)
