If you can’t seem to make your workout happen, try this strategy instead: Take three 10-minute walks each day.
It might be tough to squeeze in a full 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week, but people can generally find 10 minutes here and there. What can you do in just 10 minutes? Try taking the dog for a brisk walk in the morning, devote 10 minutes of your lunch break to a power walk around the neighborhood, and climb the stairs rather than taking an escalator or elevator.
Assuming the intensity is identical to that of a 30-minute workout, you’ll burn the same number of calories and get the heart-health benefits. It might be a shortcut, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.
