A morning practice to start the day right
Monday, 15 March · 1 min read

Walking is great for you, whatever time of day you do it. But take a walk in the morning, and you can reap extra benefits.

How? Your body has a clock that controls your circadian rhythm. In turn, your circadian rhythm controls things including your sleep.

Light is important for setting that body clock – sunlight is good for this, and morning sunlight is even better.

That’s why experts say it’s important to get some daylight, and getting some in the morning is especially beneficial. You can do this by getting outside.

Why not enjoy your morning coffee outdoors or take a morning walk?

Make that walk a brisk one and it’ll count towards your recommended weekly 150 minutes of exercise, too.
