Thanx for that, Lou - good pithy article with sound advice, IMHO. ;-)

...which may go to show that about once a year, I kickstart the "Do healthy stuff" motor, lol.

I hear you about the 10-minute thing - not that it wasn't already a part of my thinking, else I might not have joined the group!

The foot is healing, but ever so slowly, and I found out the hard way not to try to do too much, too fast. So I applied the 10-minute rule, and every 45-60 minutes, I chip away at the housework and chores I have let go since June. (Don't think about it - far too upsetting, lol.)

Meanwhile, we just keep keepin' on, yeh? emoticon

Hi Kasey. Yes, there is a similar topic in this forum you started August of last year that is titled 10-Minute Fitness but this is a good reminder.

Sometimes, when my back cramps are bad but the yards need mowing, or the bathroom needs cleaning, or whatever must be done, I remember 10-Minutes and get done what I can in 10 minutes then stop and rest. emoticon

It really is eye-opening how much can be accomplished in that short amount of time. Think of it as someone coming to your home in 10 minutes but you haven't cleaned in a few days. Now you've become that whirling dervish emoticon .

Applies to most anything -- decluttering, walking emoticon , cleaning, and, ta da, especially WRITING! emoticon

Lou emoticon

...minutes to fitness!

It may already be here on one of the team threads, but it's a worthy repeat even so.
