Maybe it’s this simple. According to the experts at the American Council on Exercise, getting in a good daily workout can be as simple as taking a half-hour of your lunch break and going for a walk. In the rain, find a staircase and alternate quick and slow climbs with some lunges and push-ups…or take the stairs two at a time. Or, like Shelli does, hit the closest mall, or even grocery store and just walk! While many find shrug and think a workout in the middle of the day just doesn’t allow for the intensity (some find sweating an obstacle, though not all will break a sweat walking, especially indoors) it definitely beats sitting at your desk slumped over your computer/phone or a book eating your lunch. For those that have an hour, a half-hour walk followed by a healthful lunch seems like a perfect recipe for better health and fitness…and if you can walk outdoors in a nice environment, it may do wonders to bring peace into your day as well.
Thanks to Rita for sharing her “be like a river (not a river rock), go with the flow,” mantra. I love it and I am being that river!
Hoping wherever you are, you are finding time for peaceandfitness, and being a river, as well.
