So I was thinking today about the word “exercise” and to me it just starts to sound like a very unapproachable word. It sounds hard. It sounds complicated. It sounds like an uphill battle.
We all have those long days where the boss isn’t working with you, and your coworkers aren’t working. Nothing seems to go right. And then you throw the task of “exercise” on to the end your day. Now I don’t know about you guys, but that word makes me want to stop in my tracks.
“Exercise” to me sounds like work. However, the word “movement” sounds good, so were going to change the word “exercise” to the word “movement.” Move! I think the word movement is a little bit more approachable.
I like the idea of movement, not just after work, but while you’re working – at your desk, from one room to another, and from one building to another. Or maybe just a bad situation at work that made you have to walk outside the building, and take a walk to the end of the block.
The bottom line is it doesn’t take much time to add some movement into your daily routine and the benefits are tremendous. Move your desk, move outside, move when you get home, move with your colleagues, move with your partners, move with your friends.
So let’s “move” 30 minutes a day. Now I know some of you might be thinking that you don’t have the time. But you do.
Even if it’s just 3 minutes at a time, 10 times a day. Or 6 minutes, 5 times a day. Whatever it takes, I just want you to move.
So, let’s try to make our next day a little bit better by moving.
