Healthy eating isn't the only ingredient to a healthy life, and binge eating dino kale will only get you so far. Exercise, both mentally and physically, is key to maintaining a healthy and satisfied life. Scheduling in 30 to 60 minutes of exercise can seem daunting, especially if you're like me and work from home. Even though my schedule is more flexible than when I worked a “9-5” office job, I find it harder now to actually step aside from the task at hand to go for a run, burn those abs, or shred some weights.
Keeping yourself accountable, especially for my fellow home entrepreneurs, is key, and the best way to set yourself up for success is to schedule in 30 minutes to take a break, go outside and breathe some fresh air, and connect with your body.
Here's a fun, full body metabolic conditioning workout that's great for all experience levels; and since I workout from home, this routine can be done gear free! I included a light weight into my routine by grabbing a full jug of orange juice (4.5 lbs when I weighed it) and lugging it around with me.
This minute (excluding warm up and cool down) took 23 minutes. Invest 23 minutes in your health and reap the benefits all day long. I've linked some YouTube videos to help demonstrate the type of exercise; videos aren't always exact, but that's okay! Personalize it!
Here’s something I bet you never thought you’d hear from a doctor, “I’m writing you a prescription for a trip to the park.” Wait, what? Is this the adult version of that recurring daydream from elementary school where recess is the only class of the day and pizza is the only thing served by the lunch ladies? Nope, it’s not a dream, Park Prescriptions are a very real thing that began with a pilot program in San Francisco parks in 2012 and has evolved to include over 100 programs across the United States.
Intuitively, most of us know that being outside is good for our health.
