How to fit exercise into your busy day

Wake up. Get ready for Work. Go to Work. Work. Commute back home. Relax. Sleep. Repeat.

It's easy to fall into this routine. Especially if you LOVE what you do. Time slips away, you get focused on what you're doing, and then looking back, you realize that you barely moved all day.

Embedding small amounts of movement (microbursts) into your day can be an extremely easy, and straightforward way of getting you moving when larger chunks of activity seem difficult to start.

A small tree is still a tree, and will grow into a bigger one every day, just like small improvements will grow into bigger ones in time. (Bonsai's don't count.)

Step 1: Set a timer that goes off every 30 minutes. Each time it rings, stand up and stretch. Take a 30 second walk around your workspace. If you don't want to move around, do 10 squats or arm circles

In lifestyle change, it’s better to succeed at a small goal, than fail at a lofty goal. We want to create a marathon of sustainable change, not sprints of success.
