Having my mind going toward a sustainable lifestyle, I found adidas is doing a great job implementing their sustainability practices into their lines. Today, I will be sharing my quick workout routine featuring the Ultraboost 20 shoes- made with a performance fabric made entirely from a recycled plastic material. 

 

If you are ready, let’s dive right in!

I love wearing my adidas for workouts, lounging around, and for any day comfort. Since now a lot of us are spending more time at home, I wanted to share with you a 10-minute total body workout where you can get your daily exercise in quick.

 

Being at home, you might find yourself in a comfy (lazy) zone often than usual. The tips to get out of this is to start your day productively by;

 

First: Make your bed

Second: Wash your face

Third: Get your workout in

Fourth: Take a shower

Fifth: Make yourself a healthy breakfast.

If you can have a morning routine like this, you sure will have a productive day ahead. The feelings of accomplishment first thing in the morning have to do with psychology.

Naval Admiral William McRaven mentioned it in his commencement speech a the University of Texas, Austin: If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter. 

 

In my opinion, accomplishing a workout routine resembles the same results as making beds. Not only that, but morning exercise may also improve decision-making during the day.

 

The new study, “Distinct Effects of Acute Exercise and Breaks in Sitting on Working Memory and Executive Function in Older Adults,” by Wheeler et al. (2019) was published on April 29, 2019 in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Their findings in the paper’s conclusion: “A morning bout of moderate-intensity exercise improves serum BDNF and working memory or executive function in older adults, depending on whether or not subsequent sitting is also interrupted with intermittent light-intensity walking.”.

 

See how we can be more productive by only making your bed and exercise! 

To get back on track to today’s workout, I have a pdf version of the workout for you to download on the library. If you want it handy with you, head over here.  

 

The sneakers I am wearing today is the adidas Ultraboost 20. These running shoes are made with Primeblue fabric, a performance fabric made entirely from recycled plastic material. It’s made of at least 75% Parley Ocean Plastic, which is marine plastic waste collected from beaches and coastal regions. 

 

Isn’t that so cool?

 

They are so comfortable and stylish to wear to exercise in, from low to high intensities. You can also wear them with your favorite jeans or outfits like the one I’m wearing for a family afternoon picnic.
