Too Busy this week! But not too busy for a walk!

Friday, April 15, 2011

Such a busy week. TOo busy at work and home and extracurriculars. Taxes, too. finally done with those, and it's the weekend, so I can relax a little.

One thing that I did really well this week: I got out or a walk at lunch EVERY DAY! No matter how busy I was, I took that break at lunchtime and went for a walk. One walk was only about 10 minutes, but most were 30 or more! I didn't succumb to being "too busy" to take that break, Each time, I came back energized, and I think I was more productive in the afternoons thanks to my excursions.

In act, I inspired a few other people to take a walk when they were planning to grab a quick lunch to take back to their desks. One person went back to her desk, put on her walking shoes, and made it a point to find me again to say that I inspired her to get outside. And to think that I almost decided to stay in myself! It builds!

Now, it's the weekend. I'm busy again, but it's a different busy, and I will relax a bit.

    That's awesome! I agree, you just nee to make time for yourself and get away! I was feeling really stressed and had a crazy day at work about a month or two ago...I really just wanted to go home and relax, but instead after work headed straight for the treadmill and ran 5 miles! Felt great and I was so proud of myself.

    That's exactly how Chris Downie started sparking others! It's contagious!

    I've been after my husband for-like-ever to do this too, however he's one of those who grabs a quick lunch to eat at his desk. :(

    I'm very happy for you; what a perfect way to spend your lunch. :)
