are good if you want to stretch while working out.
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.
find in Fabulous App. It od very intensive and well suited for morning for me. after one week I feel stronger already!
Every day gets tedious & doesn't allow recovery time for your body. 4-5x a week is fine.

It all depends on your own goals. Mix n' match may be best – stay loose! (And don't forget resistance training. Even if you are a lady, it helps posture, general body habitus, & fat burning – without making you look like "The Rock".)

For time of day guidelines i try to listen to and observe what my body can do. For me, walking in the morning is easiest. My body likes vigorous stuff and stretching in late aft or evening. And in late evening 10 or 11 pm yoga is great– a challenge yet has super benefits for a great nights sleep.
My soul likes natural environments more than gyms, so a super weekend workout is hardcore gardening with hauling digging and stretch and hold positions. Or long hikes and biking.
