Fitting in a Quick Workout
You've taken care of the first 10 minutes -- now suppose you take a shorter lunch and grab another 10 minutes to do the same sort of workout. You still have at least 20 minutes for lunch and once into it, you may even find you prefer walking to hanging around the office. The last 10 minutes can be completed on an afternoon break or might consist of a short, brisk walk taken by parking farther away from the grocery store than usual and walking 5 minutes each way. After incorporating these walking breaks, you'll find it isn't difficult to sneak in your 30-minute total for the day.
Once you find yourself moving more often and with a little more intensity, you'll also see the number of steps you take increase each day, which will increase your motivation. It won't take long before you see how much you have really accomplished by simply breaking up a 30-minute routine in to three 10-minute bursts of activity.
