Not convinced that just five minutes a day of exercise can be effective? Here’s a review of studies showing that short bouts of exercise can help you live longer, reduce your risk of weight gain, decrease hunger cues, increase satiety, improve cardiovascular health, and more!
A study published in the journal Obesity observed two groups of people, one who exercised for an hour each day and one who performed shorter, five-minute workouts throughout the day. Both groups had similar results, but the intermittent exercise group reported feeling 32% fuller throughout the day.
Another study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that going for a five- to 10-minute run every day could reduce death due to cardiovascular and other causes by up to 50%.

By committing to just 5 minutes of exercise a day, you can start reaping the rewards of exercise!
