12 Week Self Remodel – Get to Walking
While everyone else is doing a ‘New Year New You’ program (there are thousands of them), we offer you a different path. On often less taken. Making big changes to your life all of a sudden, especially at the beginning of January, rarely works out. Once the high of joining the crowd wears off, you’re left with a lot of debt, and an overwhelming program you don’t have the drive to finish anymore.
Therefore, for the next 12 weeks we present to you the 12 Week Self Remodel. Each Monday for the next 12 weeks we’ll post one thing you can easily change in your life to help create the life you really want. Each one is a small adjustment, small stepping stones to a better you. As such, they take little effort or time to accomplish. Each one will be intentionally posted later in the day. Your work week may start on Monday, but the Reclaimed week starts on Tuesday. Less competition for your time, and less stress (also something to look forward to on your Monday commute). Time to clear out some of the junk and cobwebs you’ve neglected in yourself long enough.
Week 1 – Walk Daily
Told you it would be easy.
Why walking? You are a mammal, a human animal. Whether you believe in Evolution or Creationism, you were made to move, to stalk, to prowl. Not to sit at a desk. Reclaim a part of your primal self, and do your own health a solid, and start walking daily. No less than 10 minutes, every day – no matter the weather.
You have the time, so don’t even bother with the weak excuses. You can skip watching your seventh straight episode of that show on Netflix. It will be there when you get back. So will your email, and social media. Certainly the bills will be. For at least 10 minutes take some time for yourself, away from it all. Leave the social media on silent and spend time with yourself for once. If you must, turn on some music, or a podcast. Let your ears be distracted, but keep your eyes up and taking in what’s around you.
You might just find out some new things about the neighborhood you live in. And you’ll boost your mental and physical health in the process.
