Lying on the couch all day and watching movies may sound like a great way to spend a day off, but don't fall for it! The truth is, the more you move, the more energy you'll have (and vice versa). Researchers at the University of Georgia found that fatigued people who started a low- or moderate-intensity workout for 20 minutes three times a week felt significantly less tired after a month and a half. Of course, we all have to rest sometimes, but instead of a movie marathon, enjoy just one flick and then head outside. There's a world of bike paths, hiking trails and scenic strolls just waiting for your feet!
