Is 10 min of exercise enough?

This seems to be a common question I'm asked when people are embarking on a new exercise journey. It seems that people want the maximum results without any of the hard work. In today's day and age, everyone is busy. We're hustling to work, trying to make time for our kids, our partner, and our friends. Not to mention making time for any hobbies or fun extra activity that we enjoy such as reading a book, going to the movies, or a night out on the town.

There's never enough time in the day. Or is there...

Rather than simply hoping to have enough time for everything, we must actively carve out time for the things that matter most to us. If exercise isn't happening, it's likely not high on your priority list. It's important to make intentional choices about how we spend our time. If our health and wellness goals are important we will find the time. So if you're currently finding no time for movement, I encourage you to ask yourself the question "WHY are my goals important to me?". Will you have more energy for your kids or your career? Will you feel more confident in your body and fit better in your clothes? If you keep waiting for the perfect time to start... you'll never start. The right conditions to make it happen will never happen.

Start with 10 minutes.

With all of that being said... If all you have time for is 10 minutes a day, that's better than 0. Start with 10 minutes. Dedicate time for JUST 10 minutes.Some studies suggest that even small amounts of exercise, like 10 minutes, can have positive health benefits both physically and mentally. However, the amount of exercise needed to create significant change can vary depending on individual factors and goals. It's generally recommended to aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week for overall health benefits. 10 minutes may not feel like enough to reach your goals fast enough but you'll never reach your goals if you don't do anything. Start with 10 minutes of movement that you enjoy and go from there. The goal is that eventually you can make more time for movement and it seamlessly fits into your life.
