Why is it we spend most of our lives making decisions for our bodies without including them in the decision-making process? When we make the mind/body connection, we suddenly realize that our bodies have been screaming at us for years, we just had the volume turned down. Listen up! Our bodies want to move around. They want to be used, they want to sweat profusely. They don't even mind being sore after a fulfilling bout of intense physical labor. If you've ever worked hard in the garden, or moved into a new apartment in one day, or cleaned your whole house because your mother-in-law was on her way over, you know how good complete and utter physical exhaustion can feel. And here's the best part: you can feel that way after just ten minutes. Don't be afraid it's not enough time. Don't be afraid something else won't get done. If you have time to make coffee or watch the news, you have time to move your body aerobically for ten minutes. My favorite non-stop ten minute formulas are:
Start slowly and give it a chance. Enjoy your favorite ten minute formula three times a week (no less) for three weeks. At the end of three weeks, notice how you feel sexier, happier, and more comfortable in your skin. If you like what these ten minute sessions are doing for you, then by all means keep going. Do it every day. Longer if you like, and if you have the time.
