Do A Time-Crunch Workout 4132

Do A Time-Crunch Workout

It is day 5 of the Meditate, Activate, Rejuvenate Challenge, powered by Humana.

Who says your exercise routine must be a certain length of time, like 30 minutes or longer? Whether it’s 5 minutes or an hour — every little bit adds up to provide health benefits and bursts of energy. One study from the University of Utah found that small sessions of exercise throughout the day can build up to big health benefits.

If you only have a few minutes to spare, you can squeeze in a time-crunch workout today.

Here are a few ways to consider a short-and-sweet exercise:
  • Try an online exercise class: YouTube is a perfect place to start looking. Search for a quick cardio workout, Pilates, yoga, core exercise, HIIT, or strength training.
  • Dance it out: Turn on some upbeat, feel-good music and get your heart pumping through dance.
  • Incorporate mini exercises into your workday: Spend one to 2 minutes doing standing push-ups against a desk, jogging in place, or doing calf raises.

Especially if you’re having a challenging day, a short exercise is the perfect tension-reliever and reenergizer.
