“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” ~ Buddha
In my experience, starting a workout program hard and fast after months (or years) of couch surfing never works out well. So, if you haven’t worked out in awhile and today’s your first day, the mission is simple: move your body for ten minutes. Some ideas:
- Dancing/Belly Dancing
- Workout video
- Deep-clean a room
- Roller skate
If you’ve been working out for awhile, try adding ten minutes of activity to your day. Go for a walk around the block, dance like no one’s watching or try today’s YouTube Workout Challenge.
YouTube Workout Challenge
I recently discovered the wonders of YouTube workout videos. There is a huge variety of videos out there, offering nearly every type of workout. So I thought, why not save money and try new things? That’s why each day, I’ll provide one workout video from YouTube to get you started or to inspire you to try something new.
Here’s today’s video.
How’d you do on today’s mission? Share your experiences in the comments section, below. Don’t forget to add your fitness notes to your Bliss Book.
