15 Minutes A Day Keeps The Fat Away

It can be hard to find the time to exercise. The motivation to exercise may be even harder to find when you're busy and exhausted from lack of sleep. But without activity, your body, mind and spirit will suffer. There are simple ways to incorporate exercise into your busy schedule, and the best part about it is that all you need is 15 minutes. {relatedarticles}There's no rule that says you have to work out continuously for 45 minutes or an hour. Breaking up your workouts into three daily 15-minute increments works just as well. Try getting up 15 minutes earlier than normal and go for a walk. Then on your lunch break, save 15 minutes for a walk before you eat.
Finally, take 15 minutes to walk around your neighborhood each night before you sit down for dinner. If you'd rather not go outside, then turn up some tunes and walk around your house for 15 minutes. You can even break up a workout DVD for variety. Bust the excuses for why you can't or won't exercise. {relatedarticles}Many avid exercisers could easily talk themselves out of it, but they subscribe to the "just do it" philosophy: Don't think - act. In other words, don't give yourself time to tick off reasons not to exercise. Just lace up and get out there.
