A video of a “little” who is discovering the fun of movement:
I’m so glad that my word of the year, MOVE, resonated with a few of you!
Moving, getting outside, is quite hard this time of year here in the Mitten. I was driving home today, it was quite lovely out, with just a dusting of snow and a bit of sunshine. I thought a walk was in order, but as I walked from the car to the house my mind changed itself.
The elliptical machine is where I get my steps in these days. Reading (a little challenging) or listening to a book, or doing a Sudoku puzzle (writing while bouncing up and down is a little challenging too) is how I distract my mind while in the basement stepping my fake walk about. I’ve also gone to the mall to step, but I am easily distracted there. Also, I found I must sprint inside without a coat, or drip sweat by the end of circuit. It pays to leave your wallet home, too.
I’ve used my phone as a pedometer for a long time. But I’ve found out that it was not so accurate, it was UNDERSTATING my steps. Well, maybe my new Fit-bit isn’t accurate, but I like its numbers much more.
You guard against decay, in general, and stagnation, by moving, by continuing to move. (Mary Daly)
What are you doing to MOVE in 2015?
