In 2017, the year of The Last Jedi and Bitcoin 😶, a video producer named Kevin, stood aside from the nonsense and engaged in something different.

For an entire month, with a little help from a click-and-play TV app, he used his own body weight to exercise. His endeavor took form in 7-minute workouts.

What allowed him to pull off the drills each day was commitment. When the Tech Insider crew is zeroed in on you, you don't have much choice but to ante up and stay abreast for 30 days.

But there was another, more subtle contributing factor. This one pushed Kevin beyond comfort when he felt like anything, especially burgers, was better than exercising. It had nothing to do with discipline, commitment, hustle, or mental aptitude. Instead, it had everything to do with convenience.

What made his 30-day challenge easier?

Aside from the obviously petite 7-minute workout length… It was the ease of jumping straight to the thing. No snags, no barriers, and no time for second thoughts.

I’m lazy in the morning,” confessed Kevin. I don't want to do this. I don't want to put on my clothes and go all the way to the gym and then come all the way back. However, for this, I'd simply get up, walk to my living room, turn on the TV, and just press play. It's right there!"

Kevin’s got it right. We get mind-boggled just thinking about what goes into gearing up for serious exercise. Choosing the right outfit, hyping up the inner lazy smurf lying forever restless, starting the car, packing, rethinking Spotify shuffle (and your life choices)… want us to continue? It’s 100% worse than the super sets you ought to withstand!

Instead, Kevin - to avoid all the preliminary nonsense - dove right into his physical activity. He knew the hardest thing about exercising was actually getting going.

“I just felt better!”

There’s more! 30 days after starting his demi-physical activity sessions, he pulled out a tux that he hadn't worn in a few years. Whoa…it fit him to a T!

Yes, with 7 minutes' worth of almost-sweat.

Camouflaged in bite-sized workouts, the benefits were nothing short of noticeable. The finger-snap workouts gave Kevin a well-deserved boost in spirits - elevated mood, enhanced creativity, and some serious slump-kicking superpowers.
