It’s Monday and I know you’re busy. This feel-good wellness tip will only take a minute 🙂
Question: What does eating a bag of potato chips and a 10-minute walk have in common?
Answer: Once you get started, you just can’t stop!
Get it? (My son LOVES to say that after he tells a joke.)
The single biggest reason my 10-minute walks are NO JOKE is, once I’m out there—-I hit my stride, I feel the sun on my face, and my day begins to ooze with positivity. I almost always end up walking longer.
Say you walk 10 minutes a day for 7 days. Do the math . . . you’ve logged 70 MINUTES of walking without having to think too much about it. According to the experts (not your well-intentioned neighbor who swears by Crossfit, but the American Council on Exercise who does the research on this stuff), you’ve already walked MORE that you need to in one week to kickstart Phase 1 of your wellness journey! How easy is that?
My minute is up and you have places to go and wellness to seek. I’m in . . . are you?
Feel good. Be well. Meg
