Time May Really Be on Your Side
By Tom Herrin
It seems that many feel that they are constantly at odds with the clock. They rush throughout the day only to rush after they get off of work. Hurrying home to get into another phase of their lives becomes an everyday event. If they want to do something such as get started on an exercise program, it may upset their apple cart entirely. This does not have to be the case if they will just put in some good planning time, and it doesn't require any extra heavy-duty exercise to make it happen. It may be done effectively in less than 10 minutes per session only three times a week.
Are You a Runner?
For those who are into running, it can be one of the simplest ways to exercise and save time. Unless someone is trying to achieve some kind of total body building, running or jogging can be a great way to take advantage of that. It doesn't require a marathon outing to get results. It has been said that those who run for less than 10 minutes per day, on a regular basis, may be 45 percent less likely to die of heart issues than those who don't.
Bike Riding May Be a Good Alternative
For some, running is not a good option. Riding a bicycle, or an exercise bike, can be less physically stressful. There is not as much impact so training may be much easier. According to a Japanese study, participants who rode a stationary bike just 10 minutes per day were happier overall. Good health may well be a reflection of a healthy mental state as well as physical. It seems to go hand-in-hand.
You Can Be More Productive
Short bits of exercise may be something that many feel is just not productive. I learned quite a while back that any kind of exercise is better than none. At one time, I felt that if I couldn't get a good workout in, I would just wait. Now I feel pretty good about those short bits. Many times, I actually feel much better, and I do not lose ground. When I do some good exercises that are brief, I feel as if I have done just as much as when I did a full workout. If time seems to be against you, try some of these brief workouts.
