HAPPY NEW YEAR! If you’re like most people you are probably thinking about improving your health. Starting an exercise program can seem daunting to someone with an already packed schedule. But, we have good news! Research shows getting fit doesn't require that much time.
· Increments of 10 minutes throughout the day can be just as effective for weight loss and health as an hour-long workout. We all have 10 minutes!
· Many people find it easier to stick with shorter workouts. Make it part of your lifestyle!
· Short bouts of exercise can also help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Planning an exercise routine that is short and fun does not have to cost a lot of money. We have a free download for you that you can complete in just 7 minutes. The 7-minute workout is easy to do at work or at home and only requires a wall, a chair and your own body weight.
Remember, chocolate milk is a delicious way to fuel your body for any workout! Be sure and visit www.idahodairy.com for more resources! As always, resources are free for all Idaho educators and health professionals! Dairy West wishes you and your family a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
