I have a very short – but important! – message for you today. For some of you, it may be hard to hear. Here it is: Feeling like you don’t have time to exercise is NOT an excuse to skip your workouts…
Because workouts are THAT important for your health! Your workouts are literally the Fountain of Youth for your cells. (Even older “aging” cells.)
Among all the other benefits of exercise, short & intense workouts actually can boost the mitochondria in your cells, which are tiny “powerhouses” that help your body make energy. These powerhouses start to slow down over time … but working out can help delay that process!
Even if you only have 5 minutes to get in some exercise, doing SOMETHING is far better than doing NOTHING.
You can …
- Do squats while you’re waiting for your coffee machine to do its thing in the morning.
- Park farther away from your office or the grocery store.
- Crank out a 5-minute core routine.
- Speed-walk around the block.
- Repeat a circuit of 15 squats, 10 push-ups, and 20 crunches for 5 minutes.
- Turn on some music and have a quick dance party.
Remember, no one ever magically has the time to workout – we have to make the time for things that are important to us.
There’s ONE thing you can change that has a surprising impact on your health, mood, and pretty much everything you do! It isn’t a workout and it doesn’t involve overhauling your diet.
This sugar stat caught me by surprise… and I thought I already knew a LOT about sugar. 👉 Eating just 100 calories a day of sugar (which is about 25 grams of added sugars, or 6 teaspoons) is linked to 45 DIFFERENT negative health outcomes.
What if I told you there’s ONE number you need to pay attention to BEFORE you start counting calories, macros, or anything else? For many of us, this number is a complete mystery. But once you figure it out, it’s a complete game-changer.
There are probably a few things in your life that you’d like to slow down… But when it comes to your metabolism? Probably not.
