Discover MEtime, a world of wellbeing and fitness to motivate and inspire



From the never ending 'to-do list' to the last minute work deadline, making time to sweat it out can feel exhausting just thinking about it. But in true capable female style, navigating your way through this juggling act to accomplish even a quick 20 minute home workout could help you power through your hectic morning with the kids or that over-scheduled work day and bring you more than just a post workout glow.

Discover 5 reasons why sweating it out helps you to gain more than just a healthy body.

Sweat yourself happy. As the saying goes 'there's no such thing as a bad workout!' And that's because no matter the outcome, you'll often feel better when you finish your workout than you did when you started it.  Those post workout endorphins can really tap into your creativity, positivity and boost your productivity.  Only available post sweat, you can't buy that kind of magic!

Because you're awesome. Realizing your body can do something it couldn't before can bring an amazing feeling of accomplishment and fulfilment that lights you up from the inside! From running 10k, to achieving a personal best time, or just completing a new workout, you'll be super proud of what you've achieved.

A time and a place. So, if your daily schedule looks more like a small novel, you're going to need to get creative and super organized to fit in the time needed to get to that spin class.  But being flexible and able to manage your time well, will not only make you more productive with the time you do have, but will also boost your flexibility as you carve out whatever time you can to fit in that sweat session.  All of which are great qualities to add to other areas of your life too.

Quietly Confident.  Accomplishing new habits and goals can really help to increase your confidence and help you stand tall amongst the crowd.  And also helps to build an inner strength that leads to feeling empowered and more open to embracing other changes in your life that can really help you to grow.

Feel inspired. If you're struggling with a work problem, or need some inspiration for a home project, that chances are that you'll have an abundance of ideas by the time you've finished your workout.  Exercise can help to reduce stress, and get your brain firing on all cylinders, so you get double the benefit in one hit!
