So...in a quest to be more active even in these winter days Im looking for opportunities to make better choices. One of them involves going to my German lessons. I have always caught the bus and walked the 15 minutes up the hill there (note its a horrible hill and I curse and swear at it every time). But I was talking to my teacher about where I lived, and she asked if I realised how close I was to the school...being new to the area i said no. She pointed across the valley and said walk around the ridge and its only a 30minute walk. Considering it takes me 45 minutes to catch the bus and walk up the hill...or its 30 minutes door to door walking I thought I might give the walking option a go. It was a beautiful walk through the countryside (although there was alot of snow to navigate around) and by the time I got to my lesson I was bright, alert and ready to go (usually at 8am I am begging for coffee and still wiping sleep out of my eyes). So I have now replaced one habbit with a better one, and hopefully will reap the benifits in more ways than one.
