Invest In Your Wellness Success –20-Minutes at a Time

August 2014

When life gets busy—and it always does—it’s easy to let our wellness routines become anything but routine. And while taking some time for ourselves can be a challenge, it doesn’t have to become an afterthought.   Activities like exercise, meditation and personal reflection may very well be the missing ingredient to jump-starting productivity and regaining a positive outlook on our day-to-day lives.

 The next time your schedule has you feeling out-of-sorts or maybe just a little overwhelmed, remember to carve out some time for you. Try challenging yourself to one of the activities below – they’re only 20-minutes and the benefits will truly start to add up. These quick breaks are perfect for weaving into a busy schedule and will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever life has in store.   Give it a try. Whether you make time for one or time for four, the important thing is you’re taking control by making time for what’s important. You.

 Here are a few ideas to start with, but remember to choose what makes you feel the best.
