Need some energy each morning but a shot of espresso just doesn’t cut it?

Try a quick workout to turn on your brain, awaken your body and start your day off on a positive foot.

  1. Know your ‘why’ and remember it when you’re getting started. For example: “I want to feel more energized” or “I want to wake up my mind.”
  2. Drink a glass of a water and have a light snack/food (if you choose)
  3. Get moving!

Here’s your 10 minute workout to try tomorrow morning. No equipment needed:

  • 30 seconds: arm swing/ hugging yourself movement
  • 15 seconds: arm circles
  • 15 seconds: arm circles (opposite direction)
  • 30 seconds: butt kickers (fast or slow)
