Research shows that as little as 30 minutes of exercise per day can boost your general health and well-being.
Here are highlights of why you should consider setting aside 30 minutes of your day and dedicate it to working out.
Heart-Health: Keep your heart and blood flow energetic and on the move. A 30-minute workout, at least 3 times a week, minimizes the risk of diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome.
Weight Loss: Every little bit counts. A HIIT (high intensity interval training) 30-minute workout can burn as many calories as a 60-minute workout at a lower intensity. If you're short on time, pump up the volume during your 30-minute workout and track how many calories you'll burn!
Reduce Stress: Opt to do a 30-minute workout, at any time of day, to reduce stress levels in a major way. Exercise increases the amount of norepinephrine in your body—the chemical that moderates our brain’s response to stress and stressful situations. Get sweaty and release some of that mental tension.
Energy Booster: The most natural way to boost your energy levels is exercise. Delivering oxygen and nutrients to your muscle tissues while helping your cardiovascular system work more efficiently, exercise will give your body the energy it needs to have a productive day without feeling like you need a mid-day nap.
Improve Self-Confidence: We all have days where we feel a little down on ourselves—30 minutes of exercise gives you a well-deserved boost of confidence. Your body will thank you in the long run.
A 30-minute workout can affect your life in a positive way, but it’s up to you to set aside 30 minutes of your day and invest it in your health. Here are a few ways you can incorporate it into you life.
Wake up earlier: Adjusting your sleep schedule will only have a positive effect on your day—get off to a great start by getting your 30-minute workout done first thing!
Cut your lunch break in half: Use your lunch break wisely. It's simple; use the first half to get your workout in and the second half to fuel your body with a protein packed, healthy lunch.
Hire a trainer: A trainer can customize a 30minute workout for you, and some of us need one to keep us accountable.
Important note to self----"A 30-minute workout is only 2% of your day."
