Exercise can make a significant difference in helping to normalize blood sugar levels. It also allows you to feel more energized and clear. Exercising improves your mood and is the best antidepressant there is. Try to find an hour each day to exercise. If possible, try to work out in the morning. It gets your metabolism going and helps with cravings later in the day.
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill exercise and sport science professor Anthony Hackney explained to Time Magazine,
"In the early morning hours, you have a hormonal profile that would predispose you to better metabolism of fat ... you'll draw more of your energy from fat reserves."
Additionally, a 2019 study found that people who work out in the morning can shift their circadian rhythm or body's internal sleep clock earlier. This change might help you stay alert in the morning. No matter what time you decide to exercise, it's vital to keep active as much as possible. If a gym's not available, 30 minutes of walking every day can do wonders for your blood sugar. Also, it's beneficial for maintaining healthy levels, which keeps you more alert throughout the day.
