Hi Chuck, I've read that the stress hormone cortisol is higher in the morning, and also for those of us who suffer anxiety disorders, the morning is the worst time for us. For me waking up in the morning is so hard, and I seem to always have a feeling of dread, I'd so much rather pull the blankets up over my head and stay there all day, but by sheer will I get up at the same time every morning (7:30am), and use that same will to work out 3-4 days a week. Don't know how I do it really, that is the best way I know how to cope with those feelings though, by just pushing through. When I was younger there was an ad by Nike that said, 'Just do it!', I think those are words to live by.....when I don't feel like getting out of bed, I 'just do it'!
Take care :)
