I'll Rest Today...

…and go Twice as Long Tomorrow
Does this sound like you? Many people who wait to the late afternoon or evening are too exhausted to exercise. If this is the case, try the “5-minute rule”.

When you’re too tired for an activity, put on your gym shoes and walk for 5 minutes. If after 5 minutes you are still tired, stop—your body needs more rest than exercise. But the good news is that 9 times out of 10 , you’ll feel better, and the 5 minutes may expand to 10, 20 minutes or more!

Even 5 minutes of exercise has cardio-respiratory benefits, and even 5 minutes keeps you on your exercise program!
