Where Do the Days Go?

Posted by JCC Pittsburgh on June 18, 2015

How often do you ask yourself, “Where did the day go?” Is this a common question in your life? Many of us pack so much into our daily routines, there’s no time to relax-let alone exercise. Lack of time is one of the most common excuses for not having a decent fitness regimen. But do you realize that in the time it might take you to go through your email, you could fit in a good workout? I’m not talking about giving up 60 minutes either. All you need is 10! Take q quick walk around the track, around the block, or go up and down the stairs a few times. Forget the “all or nothing” mentality when it comes to exercise. Fitness does not live or die by a 60-minute workout; there is a middle ground. Short spurts of exercise, when they accumulate, have been shown to share similar benefits of longer workouts. So… start accumulating!
