This Is Exactly How Long You Should Work out Every Day According to Science
For most people, the end of one year signals the formulation of resolutions for the coming one. Never mind that they abandoned most of what they had set out to stick to at the onset of the now concluding year, people can’t help themselves but to just set new goals.
Among them include plans to be healthier and fitter, and if you’re like most people, you’ve probably made this resolution year after year. You could even have a gym subscription, but you can hardly remember the last time you set foot in there.
What if there was another way of achieving your fitness goals without ever having to pay that infuriating gym membership fee? That cash could be spent elsewhere, right? According to Verily Magazine, committing to a daily 10-minute workout will do the trick.
The magazine reports that when it comes to working out, your mantra should be quality, not quantity, and maintaining consistency is the only “sacrifice” that you’ve got to make. Sounds easy enough, no? Here’s why these 10 minutes could work wonders for your overall wellness.
It’ll Boost Positive Thinking
If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it has got to be the power of positive thinking. Once you complete the first workout, you’ll definitely be glad that you engaged in something geared towards affecting your body positively.
This, in turn, will serve as motivation for the following day’s 10-minute session, and the cycle will continue until you achieve your results. According to a Neuropsychologia study, a short workout routine stimulates brain function, and while this won’t happen in one day, you’ll certainly notice the difference over time.
You Get Reenergized
Truth be told, the reason why most of us never exercise is more mental than physical. Even while reading this, your mind must have come up with a million reasons why you shouldn’t try out that 10-minute workout today, right?
Once you finally get over that though, you’ll never struggle with working out. Your mind won’t provide excuses when the time to get going is almost with you, and it’ll be because both your body and mind will have felt the immediate effect of a simple routine. Simply put, you’ll always have the energy to exercise.
You’ll also notice that you’re more focused, you sleep better, you’re almost always in a good mood, and your skin will be more radiant. Who wouldn’t want that?
It’ll Be Perpetual
It has been scientifically proven that once you stick to something for at least twenty-one consecutive days, it becomes a habit. That’s just three weeks, right? Once you stick to your 10-minutes-a-day for three weeks straight, best believe that you’re stuck with it.
Thankfully, this will be a healthy addiction as it has no negative consequences on your health. Instead, the vice versa is more than true.
Do notice, however, that scientists say “at least.” That’s because they’ve also noticed that for some people, forming a habit averages to roughly two months, but you can comfortably beat that too, can’t you?
And btw, the workout doesn’t have to be something that rigorous. A 10-minute walk daily will have the same results as a 10-minute gym bicycle ride.
