I had my headphones on while doing some work that didn't require a lot of brain power, and two of my current fav songs played Cee Lo Green "Bright Lights Bigger City " and "F*** You".
I just think "F*** You" is catchy, I'm not a jilted ex-girlfriend or anything! But both songs have these beats that make me want to move.
Unfortunately my day job has me at a DESK all day. How do I turn the urge to move and dance now (at 11am with my lunch break an hour away and the end of the day 6 hours away...) into inspiration later?
Step 1 is something I can do - download the songs to my phone so I have the music later. Check.
Step 2 - go home at the end of the day, hug my son, make dinner, clean up, find headphones, change in exercise clothes, put on coat, hat and gloves, go outside and walk in the dark.
I'm sure you can see where this plan is easier said than done.
Possible alternate for Step 2 is to walk at lunch time. I have a pair of sneakers I can keep at my desk. I work in a downtown area, so there are unlimited places to walk. I know this isn't a perfect plan - I am sometimes too busy to take a lunch break, or am at other locations - but maybe 3 days a week this could really work to get 30 minutes of walking in.
It's more likely than going out in the dark and cold after dinner, so it's worth a try!
