Already started reading my textbooks! Feeling good!
Letís start off with a quick visualization exercise. Spend 30 seconds visualizing one of your most important goals. See yourself reaching this goal. What will you feel like? How will this change your life?
Challenge: Go the Extra 10
Your challenge today is to exercise for an extra 10 minutes. If you already did work out today--or have a plan to exercise later--stick with it. But I still want you to tack on an extra 10 minutes today, whether it's during your workout or at a separate time of day. If today is a rest day for you, then a short 10-minute workout is your new goal.
These short bursts of exercise really do add up. You can achieve a lot of benefits in terms of strength and cardiovascular fitness in just 10 minutes. It's a great way to squeeze in a little more activity (and calorie burning) into your day, too. After all, we now know that even if you exercise regularly, being generally sedentary for the rest of the day can still contribute to a lot of health problems, from increased diabetes risk to heart disease. So get up and get moving as much as you can.
