Five Things I Need to Do More of in 2012

If it’s Wednesday (and it is), it must be time for five things.  This week, continuing last week’s theme of sorta-kind new year’s resolutions, I’ve got for you a list of things I need to do more of to ensure a better me in the coming year.

1.)  Breathe.  Yes, breathe.  I’ll expound on this more in a couple of weeks, but breathing is an overlooked pleasure in life.  Stop right now, take your hands off you keyboard, lean back in your chair and take a slow, deep breath.  Nice, huh?  And free.  And centering.  Too good not to do more regularly.

2.)  Run.  Yeah, I should have been doing this all along.  I know.  No more excuses for this phase of the program in 2012.

3.)  Nap.  Kind of like number one, napping is free, good for you and simple.  I don’t mean a two or three hour pipe dream of a daytime snooze, just 15-20 minutes of shut-eye.  I can manage that, and I think it’s likely to make me a better person.

4.)  Stretch.  Even if I’m not running, I need to be stretching.  Because, you know, it makes you feel better.  Just does.

5.)  Push-ups.  Again, simple, free.  I need to build more muscle to lose more weight, and this is a hell of a lot faster than visiting the gym.  And, did I mention cheaper?

Thanks, as always, for reading!  I appreciate the support.

  1. OK, tomorrow Adam and I are gonna go running in the Roch. It’ll be cold and gross, but if you can START running (and starting is the hardest part), we can suck it up and get a little chilly. And snotty. So maybe if you run tomorrow, you can think, “At least this is Florida in December.”
