Most of us think that in order to reap all the benefits of exercise, we need to spend hours in the gym. Lucky for us this is just not the case.
Always keep in mind, but especially during this holiday season, that short bursts of exercise are good too. In fact, a study earlier this year found that anyone who is currently overweight, obese, or sedentary will benefit from just 10 minutes of cardio a day. So while you are trying to figure out a way to fit in a workout during the holidays, don't obsess over how long you are working out, just focus on actually being able to get your body moving — a 10 minute stretch while waiting for water to boil or a 10 minute power walk after dinner will do wonders for your health and your holidays.
