If you’re struggling to fit workouts into your daily schedule because you’re constantly busy and struggle with motivation, the “less is more” mindset could do you a lot of good. Short workouts can do wonders for your motivation, and here’s how you can use them to improve your fitness routine in the long run.

No Excuses

It’s difficult to make excuses for not working out when your workouts are just 10 or 15 minutes long. No matter how busy you are, you can set aside this much time to do some light exercises and get your heart pumping, even when you’re too busy to hit the gym.

More Intensity

One of the best things about short workouts is that you can make them much more intense. Since you don’t have to preserve your energy for an hour-gym session, you can go as strong as you can and truly give it your all during your brief 15-minute workout.

Good Start

It’s highly unlikely that short workouts will get you in the best shape of your life, but they’re a good place to start. Taking baby steps is better than not taking any steps at all, and after setting aside 10 or 15 minutes a day for working out, it will be just a matter of time before you switch to longer workout sessions.
