Adding an extra hour each day reaps
enormous benefits for your appearance. A healthy person is more attractive than

Those who get out of bed early can
squeeze in a workout. You don’t have to be a morning person if you wake up
early. Instead of snoozing, you are moving. Hitting the gym before the sun

experience. It is a time to think, read, or breathe. You will feel better, and
those around you will notice how attractive you are.
