Eight minutes is a starting goal to build the habit. I started at 8 minutes and exercise for an hour at least every morning now.
So, consider any physical activity between 5-10 minutes long to be sufficient. Getting bored? Try a 10 minute routine from YouTube. Body needs a break? Consider a brisk 10 minute walk or yoga session. Once the habit is formed, see if you want to push yourself.
