Just 10 Minutes A Day Will Change Your Life.
Imagine if exercising just 10 minutes a day were enough to improve your health, cheer you up, and help you maintain a steady weight. Well, it is! The case for shorter sessions has been building for some time and I have personally succeeded with the method. Numerous studies have been conducted and again this year, results from a watershed study finally made the point loud and clear.
Researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center reported findings from a study involving 464 women who weren't exercisers. After six months, a group who walked an average of 72 minutes a week at two to three mph—that's about 10 minutes of mall-pace striding a day—had significantly improved heart strength and general fitness, nearly matching the efforts of women exercising almost twice as long. "Your body responds very positively, very quickly to even small amounts of exercise," says lead study author Tim Church, MD, PhD. "If you're sedentary, you'll see a lot of your greatest gains going from zero to 10 minutes a day."
I knew this years ago when I developed TAKE 10 TO A BETTER YOU as a tool to help me create a better work/life balance. While it is hard to find much time in our busy lives, the science proves that it only takes 10 minutes a day to lead a more healthy life.
I look forward to learning more about you and your journey. Reach out and share what you did during your 10 minutes today. We will share your stories in an upcoming blog post. Until then, I hope you find this community website and blog helpful. We are here to share, care, learn, and inspire.
