Got 10 Minutes? We've Got Your Perfect Workout

Think about what you actually do with 10 free minutes of your time. I waste at least 10 minutes each morning combing through my closet with seemingly nothing to wear. And then I spend 10 minutes perfecting my cat eye and attempting to tame my beastly hair. Then there are the minutes I waste on non-appearance-related pursuits that are probably even less beneficial: Like the 10 minutes I spend flipping through new releases until my boyfriend and I agree on the perfect movie.
