15 Minute Harried Holiday Health Hack

The holidays can be a busy, stressful time for many.  Although I generally don't recommend short cuts to health and wellness, something is better than nothing.  If you struggle to find the time to devote to your physical and emotional well-being, try this 15 minute morning routine to super-charge your day!

1.  Meditate for five minutes.  The health and wellness benefits of meditating are well known.  Even five minutes is enough to reap many of the benefits.  You will find yourself more calm, relaxed, and ready to tackle the day.

2.  Seven minute high intensity interval work outs.  This 7 minute work out combines cardio, core, upper and lower body exercise and can be done almost anywhere, anytime.  Do each exercise for 30 seconds and move straight to the next exercise without taking a break.

3.  Finally, take a few minutes to make a morning smoothie.  Packed with fruits, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals, smoothies are the perfect to-go breakfast for the busiest individual.
