Secrets of Success

Take Advantage Of Every Moment



Think you have no time to exercise? Use those minutes you spend just standing. Sometimes when there is a minute left on the timer when I am cooking something, I'll use that minute to do jumping jacks, squats, high knees, etc.

More Information:

Taking advantage of those idle moments can add up to some time that you are moving.

  • Great idea. I spend a lot of time standing or sitting. Imagine being in a grocery lineup where everyone is dancing:) - by EBONYSOL

  • It dawned on me several weeks back that I could walk/jog in place while fixing my hair for the day. In the last month I have walked/jogged (mostly jogged) in place for no less than 15 minutes, 5 days a week. That adds up quickly! At the end of each stage (4 stages) in my daily hair routine I also do 15 arm reps.

    End result per month: 300 minutes walking/jogging and 1,200 arm reps.

  • Great idea! I use the same theory when brushing my teeth! I'm sure I look very odd marching around while scrubbing away, but I get some extra steps in that way! - by CATSERVANT
