Small Changes

Today I had to take my car to get new brakes.  Instead of asking for a ride home from the shop or a friend like I normally would, I decided to walk home.  I live less than a mile away from the shop, and it only took 15 minutes to get home.  

Six months ago, I wouldn't have had the energy to walk to the mailbox two houses down.

Little changes like this eventually lead to big results! 

Next time you need to go out think about this...

Can you walk? 

Can you ride your bike?

Can you park at the end of the parking lot instead of by the door?

Can you take the stairs instead of the elevator? 

Little things like this can help all of us get more activity into our daily life.  

Experts recommend 10,000 steps per day (5 miles) for a healthy, active lifestyle. 

What do you do to add little bits of activity into your life?

  1. Very nice! Walking is so good for you and walking for an hour a day, could be split in two, will make you feel energetic all day after a few weeks, even after working for 10 hours.
