Don't let stress prevent you from exercising. Working out can help you reduce stress—the more you move, the better you'll feel! You only need to commit to exercising 17 minutes a day. Don't think of it as "work": Think of it as a gift you give yourself daily.  It's your time. 

Make your 17 minutes of exercise part of your daily routine. No need for a trip to the gym. Take a brisk walk at lunch, run up and down your stairs at home, park your car before your destination and walk the extra distance—or hop on your bike to run errands. Put in your earbuds and dance to your favorite songs, or get an exercise ball and do some sit-ups or planks while you watch TV. Live a fit life, and you'll be fit!
