5 Minutes a Day: Share a dose of your daily bliss
|pasjj5 10 years ago|
I’m going to try to double the “5 Min.” and walk 5 min. to and back on my own little street, every day. It’s the least I can do to get started. My legs are hurting right now, but I’m sure I can get the 10 min. in. My knees need to start feeling better before I can start a regular daily exercise routine. I have an excellent 15-20 min. plan that I used to do about a year ago and slacked off it. It is part of the Royal Canadian Air Force workout. Just look it up on the net. Wish me luck!KD

I lift small weights (usually 5 pounds) to keep my arms in shape. Length of series depends on the amount of energy I have at the end of the day, because I always do this in the evening. It’s an emergency workout – I do it whenever I realize that the day is over and I didn’t exercise earlier. =)

I just started walking up and down the 16 flights of stairs at my job. In the morning when I get there and after lunch to keep me going.

I do five minutes of sit up every morning and evening. I’m trying to get that six or eight pack stomach.

I fit in a 5 minute routine every day at work. There are two parking lots and I park in the one across from our building, in the very last row. If I walk at a decent pace, I can get from my car to the main entrance in exactly 5 minutes! I wear my sneakers and keep a pair of dress shoes in my office.
During my lunch break I also fit in about 5 minutes of stretching. It’s amazing what a good stretch can do!

Being a passionate swimmer, I’ll be the first one to admit that it’s not something you can squeeze in your everyday schedule. So, a 5-minutes routine can be a lifesaver.
I have a very simple routine – I work on the 5th floor of the building, and every day I climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator. I take a slow pace since it would be impractical to sweat, but still it’s an active way to start a morning. And I use stairs when going home as well – but climbing down is not really a challenge. 🙂
