Ten at a time! Just ten minutes a day will help you build a healthy habit towards exercise!
You can do this anywhere, anytime. Speed walking for 10 minutes, treadmill for 10 minutes, heavy cleaning for 10 minutes, climbing steps for 10 minutes, jogging in place or jump jacks....the possibilities are endless. It all adds up to a healthy lifestyle.
Some may argue that this doesn't help with weight-loss but what we want to aim towards is building a healthy habit in our lives.
The experts say, that if you stick to something continuously for a month, it becomes a habit! Some of my best workouts started with 10 minutes because I just didn't want to do anything!
Dreading that 30-40 minute workout? Break it up into 10 minute increments!
On days I really don't want to exercise, I tell myself, "I can do ANYTHING for 10 minutes." I try to do at least 10 minuts of cardio and at least 10 minutes of strength 5 days a week. This is a do-able amount of time for me.
I use Hemalayaa's Bollywood Dance DVD's for cardio. Most of them are already broken into 10-15 minute segments, so it's easy to do a quick workout and to switch it up so I don't get bored. for strength, I use the SparkPeople Firm & Fit DVD.
