Ten Minutes Is A Lot

Years ago I was telling a personal trainer that I couldn’t exercise because I barely had ten minutes a day to do anything. She looked me straight in the eye and said, “Ten minutes is a lot.”

Ten minutes, every day, actually adds up. It has been my experience that the people who spend the most time organizing and restoring order are those who fail to do it every day. This makes sense, as items that have been piled up, swept into baskets and hidden become comingled and confused. Unraveling this kind of mess adds time to the process of putting things away.

No matter what goal you are pursuing this month, remember the power of investing a few moments each day. Often it is getting starting that is the hardest, so let the promise of “only ten minutes” help get you going. You can do this!

    1. 10 minutes every day adds up super fast! I’m so sorry about the lower back pain. I can completely relate. In fact, the current exercise regime I am doing began as 10 minutes of back exercises each morning!

    1. Gotta love Geralin! Such words of wisdom. 10 minutes a day really does add up. I was just saying to my daughter that If I just sat down to read 10 minutes each day, I would read a lot more books in one year.

    1. Thanks for the link, Stacey. I will check it out. Isn’t it amazing how good dedicating even ten minutes can feel? Ah, the baby weight days. I remember them so well:)

    1. Thanks for stopping by and giving it a try, Dianne. I hope you find the power in even small amounts of effort extended consistently each day.
