If you want energy, give energy!
I think the phrase has some merit to it, and that’s what this week’s calorie burning cardio workout is all about.
According to research at Georgia University, a simple leisurely walk or modest intensity exercise can boost energy levels as much as 20%.
At 2:00 in the afternoon (my slump time), I’ll take it!
Movement increases the blood flow and oxygen through the body as well as increasing endorphins to the brain, helping give a little pep to the second part of your day.
It doesn’t even need to be as intense as this week’s high-energy cardio routine. Just get moving by doing 5 to 7 minutes of the video, taking a bike ride or going for a leisurely walk.
And because exercise can help improve sleep, being better rested will make getting through your day a bit easier, too.
Bottom line: try to move mid-afternoon rather than sitting so long at the computer or TV set.
HERE’S TO FEELING GOOD!
