30 Minutes of Exercise

I am Alex from Preppy Therapy and I am SO excited to be guest posting for Ashley today. Thank you so much Ashley for this opportunity, your blog has always been one of my favorites to read! Lately I have been trying to get active and in shape (spring break is coming up!) I know as high school or college students, we don't have a lot of time to dedicate hours to our bodies each day but all you really need is 30 minutes a day!
So here are some ways that you can incorporate 30 minutes of exercise into your day!

1) Walk/run with your dog! He/she needs exercise too! If it is nice weather out I find it is a nice break from all my stress to walk outside and get some fresh air. Plus, your dog needs exercise too!
2) Do workout videos on Youtube! This is one of my favorites because I can do it right in my room! It is also a great workout

3) Do a workout class! I love doing Zumba because I love to dance so I forget I am working out! 

Lastly I recommend good music. It is actually scientifically proven that you workout longer and better if you have good music playing. Here is my "Power Workout" playlist.

What do you do for exercise? What are your power songs?
Thanks again Ashley!



  1. When you think about it like that, 30 minutes really isn't that much! My favourite way get some exercise in is taking my dog for a walk around the lakes - she makes it so fun!

  2. I definitely try to AT LEAST walk my dog a couple of miles a day. Although that's been hard lately when it's below zero. I've been slacking!

  3. 30 minutes makes all the difference! I definitely try to get 30-60 minutes in per day doing Pilates/yoga and some cardio!
