Start small

Dr Mehta advises that one should start small, meaning one should start by taking out five minutes in the morning after waking up to exercise. He suggests finding the first five minutes to exercise every day and for a month after you wake up, and keeping the same routine and exercise for those first five minutes. He added, “Next month, find the add-on five minutes.” By following this method, you can keep adding five minutes every month to your exercise routine and by the end of the month, you will have 60 minutes to exercise in the morning.

How to manage sleep?

Dr Mickey Mehta advises that in order to fit the above-mentioned workout schedule into your routine, you can try and prepone your sleep cycle. Taking about the importance of having adequate sleep, Dr Mehta says, ” The quality of sleep is more important than the quantity of sleep. Try and prepone your sleeping time by 15 minutes every week, gradually and prepone your wake-up time by 15 minutes.”
