I incorporate physical activity into my regular routines.
I head outdoors in the morning. I walk my dog or visit a local park. The morning light helps me to wake up and embrace the day.
I take a break at lunch. I visit a coffee shop or stroll around a shopping mall. I am more productive when I take time away from my desk. I return to work feeling more enthusiastic and creative.
I move around after dinner. I enhance my digestion and fall asleep more easily.
I run my errands on foot. I walk to my destination or park my car further away from the entrance.
I take a walk anytime I want to clear my thoughts and reduce stress.
I invite family and friends to join me. Exercise requires less effort when I have company. I help myself and others to reach our fitness goals.
I appreciate the beauty of nature. I identify different species of animals and plants. I notice seasonal changes. I look for images in clouds and make up entertaining stories.
I make my walks interesting. I listen to music or audiobooks. I use podcasts to catch up on the news or study foreign languages.
I condition my body and soothe my mind. I help my muscles and joints to recover from long hours of sitting still. I challenge myself to go further and faster. I boost my energy and lift my spirits.
Today, I take a break from my tasks and enjoy a refreshing walk.
- What is one new route I want to try on my next walk?
- What is my backup plan for days when the weather interferes with my walk?
- How can walking help me to exercise more?
