Struggle with finding time to exercise?

Little Time? Little Bits of Exercise Still Pay Off

I know I struggle with finding time to exercise. It is hard for me to find time and I am training to run a marathon. But I find that when I schedule it in my day it does become easier. Here is a great article I found and wanted to share with you.

Probably the biggest hurdle to exercising for most people is time. We’re always on the go (behind the wheel), then once we meet all our daily responsibilities, it seems there’s no time left for exercise. But researchers from Indiana University say “snippets” of walking may be just as good, if not better, than one long exercise session.

On one day, study participants who all had somewhat elevated blood pressure walked 40 minutes on a treadmill without stopping. Another day, they walked four times for 10 minutes each time. All participants lowered their blood pressure the same amount after exercise. But surprisingly, the lowered-pressure effect lasted four hours longer after the series of short walks. So grabbing 10 minutes here and there four times a day to walk could be just the time-challenged trick to keep you healthier and your blood pressure in check.

Other research shows short bursts of exercises may keep your metabolism raised, to help your body burn calories more steadily throughout the day, too. And that means a slimmer you in less time.

So say so long to the “no time” exercise excuse. Seize your next 10 minutes!

Next, try this for a two-minute metabolism-boosting lunch to add to your 10-minute workout: a Slimplicity® meal replacement shake. Quick, easy and delicious, the shakes are part of Reliv’s breakthrough Slimplicity Weight Loss System. Muscle-building protein and fat burners in the shake, combined with Accelerator capsules and diet and exercise support, give your metabolism and weight loss efforts speedier results.

Cheers to your health!

    • yes, this naturally boosts your metabolism as well. It also nourishes your body, something some diets don’t do.
      Thank you for your comment and reading this post. Hope you are having a beautiful healthy day. Cheers! Katrina
