Do you want to start exercising? I do. So many times I have started, stuck with it for a while and then stopped. I’m getting tired of this routine and the excuses that accompany it. Then one day, it just clicked. I realized a short opportunity to exercise each day and vowed to stick with it.
I have a dog that needs walked (you can read more about him here and here XXX), which is a great excuse to exercise. However, I also have two younger children with a husband that has a very busy schedule. One day a light bulb went off and I realized the 20 minute window when he comes home from working out and gets ready before leaving for work is my 20 minute window where I can get in a quick jog and walk the dog! Double-win!
As I was walking, I felt compelled to share this realization on the blog to hopefully help someone else. I know life is busy, but finding even twenty minutes to exercise can really help your body and mind. Look at your schedule and find time to squeeze in a twenty minute walk. If it is too hot or cold or you have children, squeeze in a quick DVD or youtube video. I love yoga with Adriene on youtube.
