Physical activity for just 10 minutes can have benefits for the body! Try to incorporate these short duration activities into the day to get moving. There are many fun and new ways to be active for just a few minutes that can make exercising interesting and convenient.
- Walking is a great go-to exercise for short durations. Walking the dog, pushing a stroller, enjoying the leaves changing color in the fall or walking from school or to the bus stop are all really convenient ways to get moving.
- Turn chores into exciting exercise. Helping out in the yard or garden, washing the car, cleaning the house, or doing the dishes can be great ways to be more active doing activities that are already a part of your lifestyle.
- Stretching in your chair will pay off. Most of us sit for the majority of our days, whether we are in school or at work. Taking some time to stretch the muscles and increase blood flow throughout the body is a great method for moving where you already are.
