Off-Couch Living

You have to start somewhere, so the easiest thing to do is get on your feet. It’s even easier when you get a friend to help you. You’ll be helping each other with those midlife changes, so it’s a win-win.

Instead of going straight home from work, go by a friend’s house and walk around a few blocks with them. Set up the same afternoon every week. It’s not much, but it’s a start. Got a dog? Even better! They live for a good walk, they always want to go, and I bet your dog could use the walk as much as you can.

A mix of this starting one or more days a week can grow into four or five days a week. The best way to get fit and for changes to be made in your health and wellness is to let it become a habit. Habits take time to develop, about 2-3 months, so don’t stress about it. Before you know it you’ll rather go off and walk down a path than watch your favorite TV show, bet your snack intake will go way down and water intake way up as well.

We are very lucky here on planet Earth, just so happens that we are specifically designed to survive for reasonably long periods of time completely exposed to the elements of the planetary surface. So stand-by Houston for couch separation in 3..2…1.


Here’s to a Healthy Mid Life!
