“Life won’t stop for your pauses and procrastinations. It won’t stop for your confusion or fear. It will continue right along without you. Whether you play an active part or not, the show will go on.” ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

How We’re Exercising

Johnson and Johnson’s 7 Minute Workout

You don’t have the time to workout – we get it. But we’re sure you can schedule in 7 minutes to get up and get moving during your day. We use this app when we’re unable to do one of our regular workouts (i.e. when we’re traveling for work). The app has 72 exercises with 22 additional, customizable workouts so you won’t have to worry about getting bored. It also monitors your fitness and motivation levels and customizes your intensity for you. Listen to music, follow instruction, or watch the timer and get to work. What’s 7 minutes in the grand scheme of things anyways? Plus, that boost of endorphins will get you through your workday. Yes please.

But if you can recognize that you are the only thing stopping yourself from succeeding, then pick this one up and give it a try.
