If you are really a health devotee you must believe this.Each day making small changes in your lifestyle will make you fitter from outside and inside as well.
A 5 minute jogging/skipping before shower is definitely better then doing nothing.
Doing healthy food swaps is another step towards healthy lifestyle.if you are a bread lover bake your own bread which may not be tastier as the gourmet bread but much healthier than that. Else replace bread with roti.
