Are you worth 15 minutes? Yes, you are! So, why not spend that time doing something to make you feel physically better? Why not fit in a quick, intense, 15 minute workout that will not only leaving you feeling alive, but energized and happy!
Let’s get this crazy idea out of your heads that to become healthy and fit means that you need to spend hours every week at the gym! It absolutely doesn’t. It makes me sad to hear people tell me that they just don’t have time to exercise; I hear this a lot! Here’s the thing, exercise does take effort and you do actually have to put aside a bit of time on your own. But, do you know what? It is worth making this change and making it a habit. We are ALL busy! We all have 15 things going on at once! It’s become normal to multitask and feel like you don’t have time to do anything for yourself. I made a decision years ago that in order to be the person I want to be, I need to take care of my body inside and out. I made a point to schedule in exercise every day and I am a better person, inside and out because of it!
So, you ask, what can I possibly do in 15 minutes that is worthwhile? Tons of things; the list is endless actually! In 15 minutes you could do an at-home skipping/upper body weight lifting sessions. Or, 15 minutes of alternating between slow, low squats and lunges, and arm exercises. Or 15 minutes of yoga stretches. How about 15 minutes on a bike, stationary or road bike? How about a 15 minute power walk outside.
Do you see what I mean about the list being endless? I just spontaneously thought of 5 exercises without even really putting real time or thought into it. I have so many more ideas too. Just comment to me if you are interested in more ideas and I’m always happy to share.
Very importantly though, you need to want to make this change for the good of yourself.
Make a plan to start tomorrow and actually do it! All you need are 15 minutes! Let’s do this!
