What Can You Do in 121 Seconds
121 Seconds might not feel like much time. There are almost 30 x 121 Seconds in an hour, almost 720 of these units in a day. If you sleep for 8 hours a day you are still left with nearly 480 lots of 121 Seconds.
It would be easy to let a lot of these packets of time casually drift by. So what can be achieved in this relatively bite sized chuck of time?
If you stop to think about it, there are many things that 121 seconds worth of time can yield. Some of these are actually very important, others are just plain fun. The important thing is to mindfully use them.
You could win a track gold medal at the Olympics in the 100m, 200m, 400m or 800m.

Set Your Own World Record
While 121 seconds of exercise each day sounds easy, if you consider the ongoing compounded benefits of intense exercise over a week, month and year, the results are dramatic. You will be stronger, fitter and happier, both internally and externally. You will also save money through zero gym fees and have less of a reliance on paid health care.
You might even find that you live longer, more than making up for the 121 Seconds you invest each day in your own health. If you only gained one extra day of life for every 480 days of exercise, then you would still be in front.
Most people are busy and often tired from the stress of living but if you can positively harness one extra unit of time a day out of 480, then a lot can be achieved. This philosophy will allow you to enjoy an enriched life of conscious action.
