Have you heard about this 10 minutes a day exercise craze? Apparently, it’s the new thing. And, for once, this is a “thing” I can get into. Who doesn’t have 10 minutes a day? Maybe people with children, or those in the medical profession, or line workers, or…
Ok, I’m sure there are plenty of people without a moment to spare. I didn’t really think I had 10 minutes, either, to be honest. So, I started with 5, and am now moving towards my 10.
What do you do with your 10? Some people do more in 10 than I do in my week. But, we’re all in different places, and without shame, I position myself quite squarely in the “beginners” column, thank you very much!
This is what I’ve been doing with my non-expert-informed, no clue what I’m doing, don’t try this at home, self every morning. I’m not a doctor, so please consult one before attempting any kind of exercise. My personal challenge will be to maintain this pace, or something close, when that special (every 28 day) visitor arrives this month.
Working Towards 10 Workout:
1. Basic Hatha Sun Salutation
2. Ankle strengthening exercise.
3. Weights: 5 pounds each arm. 10 Butterfly.
4. Same: 10 Curls.
5. Same: 10 Open the door and look at my chest.
6. Asanas: Current/Tree
And that’s about all I have time for right now. After this, I make breakfast. Usually, I make something protein-rich. I still need to regain my beforehand breakfast rhythm to get more protein-rich breakfasts in, but it’s going well. I feel stronger already, which feels so good. I really think the 10 minute plan is great for those just getting started. It’s tough to commit to a sustained time period, but 10 minutes each morning really seems to start my day off on the right foot.

Enjoy your week!
