Last week I realize that walking and exercise is the best sleeping aid that one can have and it doesn't cost a thing but time. I walked five days last week and the sleep each night was just deep and restful. This week I realize something else I already knew and that is, you have to be deliberate about making exercise a regular and habitual part of your lifestyle. It's amazing that exercise is one of the things that you can easily dismiss from your day and it says "my body and health is not worth the effort" I ask myself this week as I let other things creep in and overtake my exercise "Why is it so easy to do". I don't let anything get in the way of me brushing my teeth, taking a shower, drinking that morning cup of coffee, getting my "me" time in the morning. Yet, I easily push exercise to the back burner. I realize now that I have to make exercise one of the habitual things in my life and not just something else I "need" to do. My goal this month is to walk at least 30 mins 3X per week. So far I've exceeded that goal. I'm a little over halfway of the month trying to develop a habit. "one of good health"
