Have you ever been so busy that you wondered where the heck your day went? That happens every day, right? So much so, in fact, that when you hear about some way to improve your health, or shortcuts to your workout time that can improve your health, you are quick to write it down or incorporate it into your life, most likely.

Well, that’s not a bad thing. Every little thing adds up, right? So although these won’t take the place of your regular workouts or healthy eating habits, but you can think of these little health minutes as icing on the cake, so to speak.

Check out the top 20 ways you can improve your health in 60 seconds or less.


1.  Enjoy a Second Cup of Coffee

New research is mounting daily showing that having that second cup of coffee has numerous health benefits, including keeping skin cancer at bay. It only takes a minute to brew another cup, but you can take more than a minute to drink it!


2.  Lower the Thermostat

Colder temperatures makes the unhealthy white fat in your body act a bit more like brown fat, which means you will burn more calories without doing anything else. It only takes a minute to turn down that thermostat!


3. Schedule a Week of Workouts

Take just one minute to add your next week’s workouts to your calendar. Studies show that if you schedule things such as workouts in advance, you are much more likely to stick to that schedule and make fewer excuses.

You probably scrub the toilet every day or every other day, but when was the last time you nuked that kitchen sponge? Take one minute to stick that damp sponge in the microwave and nuke those puppies into the afterlife! (Or wherever it is germs go when they die.)
