How Being A Day Person Leads To More Physical Activity And Better Quality Of Life

What does being a day person mean anyway? To me it means being a grown up. Remember being in college, burning the candle at both ends with no problem? Staying up into the wee morning hours to hang with friends or study for mid terms and finals. This more than likely led to doing the same throughout your 20’s, though you were probably watching the late show for a good laugh before sleep. Once we get into our mid thirties and beyond, there’s really no reason to be up late at night (unless you have a graveyard shift of course)

Rise and Shine After a Good Night’s Sleep
To start each day off right, it is important to get plenty of sleep each night. According to data found at www.mayoclinic.org the recommended amount of sleep for adults is between 7 and 8 hours of sleep per night. Less than or much more than seven hours of nightly sleep can lead to increased sluggish behavior throughout the day. What I suggest to all people interested in being a day person is go to bed by 10:30 at night, get a solid 7 hours then get up at 5:30. Regardless if you have to be at work at 8,9 or you or self-employed with your own hours, getting up early gives you time to start your day off right – with exercise! Going to bed at a regular time each night also highly reduces an individual’s chances of binge eating before bed time, which leads to weight gain and feeling sluggish the next morning.
Daily Physical Activity is the Key to Living a Long and Healthy Life
I wrote about pre and post nutrition in a previous post. Despite all of the health food crazes and over-the-top exercise fads that have come and gone over the decades, being a day person gives extra time for physical activity. The photo I posted above is my view every morning as I walk my dog 3-4 miles. I get up at 5, drink a cup of coffee, do some work then head out the door by 6. It’s about a 5 minute drive to the beach so by no later than 6:15 I am walking. On my gym days, I walk an hour and 15 minutes. Non gym days I will walk an hour and a half to an hour and forty five minutes. My point? Before 8am I have already walked 3-4 miles. Sprinkle in 5 minute walks and I can reach my goal of 5-6 miles a day. You do not have to be in great shape to walk. This can be done at any pace. Start walking now and I guarantee not only weight loss but you will feel much better throughout the day. When you are ready to start lifting check this out.
Conclusion
It is obvious that being a day person leads to healthy lifestyle habits such as getting enough sleep, eating balanced and nutritious meals, and engaging in easy to moderate daily exercise which will lead to an even more intense workout – all of which can have major and beneficial impacts on our overall health and quality of life. You do not have to train like a professional athlete in order to meet your health goals, nor are you required to invest lots of time and money into a gym membership or overly expensive foods to see the results you desire. Getting healthy starts the moment you awake, and can be managed throughout each day with just a little effort and dedication.

  1. I could say that longevity is all about a state of being. While a good meal plan and
    lifestyle can aid from this I believe it’s the mindset.

    It all comes down to helping them understand that they are still an asset.
