Day 2 of the March Slice of Life writing Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers. Join in the fun!
I had hoped that with a new month that I’d start (yet once again) with focusing on new routines. Why is it so hard to eat well, exercise, stress less? Yesterday did not go as I had hoped.
As I sat reading the paper this morning, an article by Dr. Heather Ross, a cardiologist, got my attention. She follows her own advice about having an exercise addiction. She provided a list of 10 things that would “embed heart health into your lifestyle”. Her first prescription really hit me though.
Ask yourself, “Is my life worth an hour a day?
Wow. I had never thought of it that way. What a different way of looking at exercise. Yes, I am worth it. Yes, I definitely need to do something different, better. Even 30 minutes a day is okay.
So, new month – time to be good to myself; time to add a bit of exercise addiction.
