5 To Thrive Friday – Total Body Workout Edition is for those who find it challenging to make time for exercise when their life is incredibly busy. I experience what it’s like to be overwhelmed on a weekly basis, especially when I work with 10-14 people a day. As ideal as it would be to actually have time to go for a run, do a yoga class, hit the gym or sweat it out in your favorite workout class every day, it’s just not always realistic. That’s why incorporating this 5 To Thrive Friday – Total Body Workout Edition is the most efficient way to stay consistent without the stress of committing to an activity that’s going to cut into more of your time.

All or Nothing Mentality 

Having an all or nothing mentality when it comes to health & fitness isn’t always the best way to go about a balanced lifestyle, especially when your schedule doesn’t allow for lengthier sweat sessions on the regular. Be realistic with your time and schedule. It’s always best to just do something, even if you feel like it wasn’t enough. Seriously, the little things truly do add up in the long-term. According to a 2014 published study in The Huffington Post, How 5 minutes a day can Improve Your Health and Can Increase Your Lifespanthose few minutes can be incredibly effective when it comes to improving overall health & fitness. It can even help you live longer.

I know with absolute certainty you have five minutes a day and it’s easier when you have a program like 5 To Thrive Friday – Total Body Workout Edition. Give this five-minute program a try on those days when a long workout just isn’t an option.
