Here’s what happens when you workout for 10 minutes a day
The wedding season is round the corner and all of us are wanting to wear that gorgeous lehenga or sherwani. Ideally, we’d all be healthier this year than we were last year, but constraints such as time, money, and maintaining professional and social aspects of life can make hitting the gym regularly more of a wish than a reality.
However, committing to just ten-minute workout a day (and let’s be honest, we all spend at least that much time scrolling through our social media feeds) can do a lot more for your fitness levels. Here’s why.
It’s better than nothing
There truly is power in positive thinking. Knowing at the end of the day that you did something. You can still see the results. A quick morning yoga video may lead you to sit up straighter. When you choose to rejoice in these small successes, you set yourself up to do more good the next day.
You’ll get re-energised
The struggle to get moving is usually more about the mind than the body. But once you get going, you find those excuses far less tempting. That’s because the immediate benefits of exercise are well documented: Your mind is sharper, your self-esteem higher, your sleep deeper, your mood happier, and your skin rosier.
You’re likely to keep going
People often say that it takes twenty-one days to form a habit. When the goal is to make a lasting lifestyle change, jumping to an extreme can be counter-productive. If you make exercise resolutions that don’t stick, start with smaller, smarter goals. Trust the tortoise: Slow and steady is the way to win the proverbial (or literal) race.
