My husband and I were taking an energetic walk in our neighborhood this evening. We have a couple of routes we can take depending on time. It was a beautiful evening as the sun went down, and it felt wonderful to move after sitting all day at work.
As we walked, I thought about some of my personal training and coaching clients and the struggle they have in giving themselves time to exercise. I said a little prayer for each of them. My hope is that they will see the benefits in taking time for themselves. Even a short walk in the middle of the day if that’s all that time allows, will revitalize them for the rest of the day. A walk can also give them mental, emotional, and spiritual clarity, something we could all benefit by, in our busy, hectic lives.
Ask yourself this: How would my life be different if I took better care of myself? What would the benefit be to those around me?
Happy Fall, a wonderful time to walk and enjoy this colorful time of year.
