Motivation: The 15 Minute Rule

September 18, 2011

Sometimes it is so hard to get out the door. A run…bleh. A swim…ug. Exercise…boooooo.

In our family we have a motivational mentality for the days you just don’t feel like doing anything except eating and lounging around. We tell ourselves to just go exercise for 15 minutes. Lift weights, go for a walk, a run, something to move the rear for 900 seconds.

By the time 15 minutes elapses, usually you are already feeling better and just continue exercising. You reach the point where you are already out there, now you are warm, and chances are you just want to keep going. If not, well at least 15 minutes is better than not working out at all.
