What comes to your mind when I say 2%?  Even if you are bad at math, 2% is a tiny portion of anything.

Most of our culture today is bombarded with a "More! More! More!" mentality.  2%?  No way!  I want it all!  I only wish this were true when referring to things that were actually good for us.

2% of your day for greasy food, booze, Facebooking, and TV watching?  No way, we need more!

2% of your day for a wee bit of exercise?    ....now how do you feel about that number?  Does it change your perspective?

I'll break it down for you:  2% of your day equals about 30 minutes.  I probably spend at least 2% of my day trying to decide what to make for dinner with the fridge door open or trying to convince my 3 year-old to wear shorts instead of a tutu and underwear on her head.

Have you thought about what is holding you back from committing 2% of your day to exercise?

According to Harvard (can you seriously argue with Harvard?): "Regular exercise or physical activity helps many of the body’s systems function better, keeps heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other diseases at bay, and is a key ingredient for losing weight."
(See The Full Article Here.)

You know all this already.  You should know all this already.  Exercise (of any kind...we'll get to that later) is good for you.

Take a few minutes today to reflect on that 2%.  Everybody got time for that.
