Secrets of Success

Creating "Option To Exercise" Days




On days when it's nice out and I have places I need to go around the city, I wear comfortable shoes (or workout shoes) and throw some extra clothes in my backpack so that I have the OPTION to exercise -- meaning, if I decide I want to take a brisk walk between places I need to be, or after a meeting or rehearsal ends, I can! I can just do it, then and there, with no other planning. And if I've packed that stuff...I almost always end up saying YES to the option!

More Information:

Just don't make your backpack or carrybag too heavy, since you'll be wearing it on your walk. :)
