SEE Little Movements, Big Results

3.24.2014

SEE Tip:  Only have time for a quickie? No problem! Now get your mind out of the gutter…we're talking about a quickie in the gym, or anywhere you can fit a workout in for that matter! There are some serious benefits to a quick burst of exercise, were talking 10-15 minutes here! This is the kind of stuff you could do before you hop in the shower, while you’re watching TV, or waiting for the study room to open up. Getting your blood flowing  for even just 15 minutes can help clear your mind, reduce depression  and even help you sleep better (1). Also, just a quick walk up and down the stairs or around the block, burns calories and increases energy! That’s more than sitting in front of the TV or computer can say. Also, utilizing quick short workouts can help you keep on your fitness goals because…well…if you know you only have 15 minutes to get in your workout, there’s a lot less time to mess around on your phone and tweet, text or Instagram your workout (hehe).
