Sorry, but I’m removing one of your excuses for not exercising… time.
We all want to lose weight and look our absolute best, but it can oftentimes seem like a huge, time-consuming commitment. However, there are activities that we can do each day to make positive changes, some taking no more than a minute. Here are ten quick and easy solutions that, over time, will create huge changes in your physique.
1. Pause And Do Ten Jumping Jacks
Take jumping jack breaks the way most people take cigarette breaks. In ten minutes, you can boost your heart rate and burn some calories.
2. Cut It In Half
When eating out, be sure to cut your meal in half. Most restaurant portions are too large for one person. For the price of one meal, you can be full and have a second meal for later.
3. Get Inspired
The internet is full of motivational videos, articles and images. If you’re feeling down about your progress, take a minute to browse the web for some inspiration.
4. Write Down Your Goals
Take a minute to write down your goals for the day. Goals might include eating three servings of fruit or running for a half hour. Writing down your goals makes them seem more concrete and therefore easier to achieve.
5. Walk Around The Block
A cardiovascular workout doesn’t have to be a forty-five minute intense ordeal. A quick walk around the block can get the blood pumping and improve your attitude towards your fitness goals.
