I’ve been spending a lot of time doing various things in my flat recently – steam cleaning the oak floors and re-varnishing and also quite a bit of painting. Playing catch up, in fact, because I’ve neglected the flat of late due to renovating my 2nd little house in Dorset – plastering, painting, tiling and so on. I love all of that - it's quite creative and, as I always say, it gives me the satisfaction of an end product.
As I was working on the floors yesterday I was also reflecting on the fact that I don’t resent a scrap of the energy I expend on these things whereas I’m massively resistant to spending time and energy on cardio or strength exercises – seems less inspiring because there’s no end product. Except – as I suddenly realized – there IS an end product. There’s a healthier and hopefully a more toned body that I could look forward to if I just changed my viewpoint. Nothing new there, you may say - quite rightly, but it's certainly a thought for me to work on – and an attitude for me to change.
