Revive Fizzling Resolutions with One-Minute Exercises

Revive Fizzling Resolutions with OneMinute Exercises
It’s still January, but not for long! If your New Year resolutions are in danger of losing their muscle, consider strengthening your resolve with easy one-minute exercises.

When you are low on energy it becomes harder to stick to your goals. And even though there are only 24 hours in a day, there are 1,440 minutes each day. Take one of them to give your fizzling energy a boost.

After the holidays, real life takes over and social routines and interactions can pull your focus away from your resolutions. Falling short of your goals can zap both physical and mental energy. Instead of giving up, invest in one-minute exercises that are specifically designed to increase your stamina, sharpen your mental focus and circulate energy throughout your body.

Soo Ahm Lee, a Dahn Yoga instructor and martial art master tells us, “one-minute exercises allow you to feel the essential energy in your body, energy that aligns your upper, middle and lower Dahn-jons.

Training yourself in this way, he says, develops the willpower to stick to your goals.

He recommends one-minute exercises such as push ups, finger push ups (against a wall), squats, bowing and sit ups.

If you can commit to one minute of holding a horse riding stance squat at the start of your day, or one minute of sit ups before you head out for lunch or even finger push ups while you’re waiting for the bus, you will have built an energizing physical routine into your day without having to make any scheduling adjustments.

More importantly, with just one minute a day, you will be adding more energy to your life without taking too much time away from your day.
