Make Time for Exercise and Keep It Simple

By Tom Herrin

It is pretty difficult to do all of the things we want to do, but it is rarely impossible to do them in some way or another.  Those busy schedules may seem insurmountable, but most people can get more done than they realize.  They will, however, have to make some good compromises.  If they are trying to keep an exercise program going, they will likely have to shape it in a way that they can cut things out that are less necessary while keeping those that are important.  Many times, a shorter exercise session can be very effective.  Setting those goals and working toward them in an orderly manner may be a key to success.

Running Short Could Work

For those who enjoy running, cutting that short may seem like a step backward.  The truth is, however, that people may do an adequate job of exercising while limiting their run to only a few minutes.  Some studies have shown that people who run for only 10 minutes per day regularly may cut their chances of dying from heart disease by as much as 45 percent.  This is a stark difference from those putting a 30-minute or hour session of running yet still produces good results.

Happy and Healthy Can Work Together

In order to be healthy, it is generally believed that people should be happy.  Their outlook can play a big part in the success of their efforts.  According to a Japanese study, people who rode a stationary bike 10 minutes per day on a daily basis were happier.  They were also able to perform better on various mental tasks requiring good reaction time.  The combination of happiness and good health can be a positive one.  Promoting it may be great.

Your Program Should Meet Your Needs

Any exercise program we have should be personalized.  Identifying what our needs are can be a first step in establishing a good routine.  If we can successfully reduce the time for our workout, we may well be better able to follow our plan.  As we set those goals, it may be helpful to recognize just what we can do within our own limits.  Once we do that, we can make adjustments to our workout to make it more successful as well as allow time for the many other things we have to do.  We may find that there are some things on the list we don't need at all.
