Get up, go strong

Shape (Malaysia) - - READERS SPEAK OUT -

Let us make a case for the morn­ing work­out, one that might fi­nally com­pel you to leap from the sheets straight into span­dex. All those seem­ingly rou­tine tasks you’re about to rack up to­day – pulling to­gether your out­fit, check­ing email, de­clut­ter­ing your desk – in­volve de­ci­sion mak­ing, which taps into the same men­tal-en­ergy re­serve that fu­els the will to ex­er­cise, ex­plains psy­chol­o­gist Josh Davis, Ph.D., the au­thor of the new book Two Awe­some Hours. “If you’re men­tally fa­tigued, it’s harder to ac­cess that willpower.” Hit the gym first thing, on the other hand, and your men­tal tank is po­ten­tially at its fullest.
