20 minutes out of each day......that's all it takes. Just 20 minutes of good heart thumping exercise per day to help keep you fit and healthy. For me, I say 20 minutes a day is a good starting point. I used to hate exercising but as a began to make it a daily habit and do different things each day it began to be something that I looked forward to. I love how I feel after a nice long hike or bike ride and enjoy all of the health benefits too. Not only is my body thanking me but so is my mind. It gives me a break from the stresses of daily life and allows me to focus on myself for a few minutes and check in with myself to make sure I am keep all things in balance.
Its not that difficult to get started. One thing that I found that really helped me in the beginning was to write out a to-do list and schedule my exercise into my day. I also added in a time that it needed to be completed by to help keep myself accountable and motivated throughout the day. Just remember 20 minutes a day is a good starting point. As you continue to progress in your exercise routine it is great to add in additional time and keep things interesting by doing different things. So, What a you going to do with your 20 minutes today?
