We all know that familiar feeling of guilt when you skip a workout or don’t feel like you’re doing enough. Let go of what you think is a “workout” and look at your daily movement through the lens of “less is more”. Making it a habit to move consistently every day is achievable. Movement can be a short walk, dancing along to one song, a quick stretch, or a few reps of strength movements every day. Make daily movement manageable and enjoyable – your future self will thank you.
