The Anti-boredom workout

I guarantee that most of you will at some point today do the following:

  • You will check your email
  • You will check Facebook
  • You will aimlessly surf the web
  • You will watch some TV
  • You will gab on the phone

Who wants to take me up on this? Anyone want to make a bet? Combined, this time-wastage can span hours. At a minimum it can eat up precious time in your day.

Is any of this advancing your cause? Helping others? Making the world a better place? If you are going to be selfish then at least be selfish in a more meaningful way. Go exercise!

The Anti-boredom workout

Turn off the TV and turn on the radio.  Grab a stop watch or a timer.

Perform each of these exercises for 30 seconds without a break in between. Once done with all of the exercises you are allowed a two-minute break. Repeat this 4-6 times.

  • Squats
  • Push-ups
  • Crunches
  • Lunges
  • Burpees

At least being selfish in this way will make you healthier and more energetic. A more energetic you is a happier you. A happier you is a world slightly better off.
