Burning calories to lose weight doesn't stop at the daily workout. If a healthy life is what you are after, then introduce healthy 10 minute fitness activities to your day and you'll find that you feel fitter, more energetic and healthier. An active lifestyle provides you with a range of health benefits like lower heart disease risk, protection from obesity, and general good moods. Today, we're talking about a few 10 minute fitness activities that will enhance your daily workouts and balanced eating. Let's begin...

10 minute fitness activity #1: Be a kid
Dietitian Eileen Canday says, "Play with your pet or your kid every morning. This requires loads of running around which will help you to lose some quick calories and excess fat." She further says, "Include games wherein you sweat, like football or basketball. Playing with your kid will help you to be fit and healthy." 

10 minute fitness activity #2: Skip the elevator
Take the stairs instead of the elevator. You must have heard this a million times by now, but how often do you do it? This activity will help you combat a sedentary lifestyle since urban living involves entering several buildings each day. 

10 minute fitness activity #3: Hop a little
Remember the nursery rhyme – hop a little, jump a little? This hop, skip exercise is also a very good 10 minute fitness activity to introduce to your day. Whenever free, take a skipping rope and skip for 10 minutes, this will help ward off lethargy and extra calories. Besides, it is also good for your heart, bones, flexibility and co-ordination. Hence, find an open space, take that rope and get going.

10 minute fitness activity #4: Dance baby!
Everyone likes dancing and it is also one of the best ways to lose excess kilos. All you have to do is put on your headphones, pump up some energetic music and dance like no one’s watching. Dancing even for 10 minutes will help.  Besides, after a tiring day at work it will also energize you and your mood.

10 minute fitness activity #5: Stationery cycle
Tired after work, want to watch your favorite serial but at the same time don’t want to lie down and be lethargic? Then park a stationery cycle in front of your TV. Pedal for at least 10 minutes and this is as good as running on the treadmill.
