Finals Week Survival Guide, part 2

I said in the last post that I'd be adding some of my favorite "study break" workouts soon! Well, here they are.
If you're anything like me, you get sleepy while studying. (Confession: I *have* fallen asleep while studying before...oops! ;) ) When I start getting sleepy, I'll do one of these workouts, and presto, I'm awake. ;) All of them are are fairly easy, and all of them are 20 minutes and under.

First up:

Do the 1 mile walk. It runs 15-20 minutes. If you're studying a super boring subject and need to wake up, this is the best one to do!


A 10 minute rhythmic stretch. This is probably the easiest one of the bunch - it's all about stretching!


20 minute Pilates workout. If you've never done Pilates, ignore the next 2 and do this one. It's longer, but it's easier.


If you have any Pilates/yoga experience, go for this one. It's probably the most intense Pilates workout of the bunch. 10 minutes. Difficulty level: intermediate.


Not super easy, but not super hard either. 10 minutes. Difficulty level: beginner to intermediate.

So, as you can see, there are some "study break" workout options for everyone, in shape or not! And now you'll stay awake while you're studying. ;)
