Humans are made to walk
I want to walk more. I know it's healthy. I know my body and mind will benefit from it.
Remote work in lockdown has thrown on us limitations to be in public. I was already working from home for 7 years. But I was never locked at home.
6 months after lockdown I started noticing more fat in my belly area. It's not critical. I don't feel any discomfort. It just doesn't look good. I want to change it.
3 rules to bring back walking habit:
- Walk when I have most of my free time. Usually, it's mornings. No calls, no meetings, no Slack chats. Right before breakfast.
- Take kids, dog, or wife with me. Walking by myself is fine. I enjoy this time to think. It's like a meditation. But when you have someone to play or talk to - time goes faster.
- Have a topic to think/talk about. It will make the walk more interesting and bring more valuable ideas to the table.
Bonus: start today. I just came from a walk with my wife and getting ready to work. Clear thinking. Fresh ideas. Good mood.
