Here we go…let’s dedicate this month to our own good mental health and happiness through 31 Days of Wellbeing.
Your activity for Day 1 is very simple…yet also could be a challenge, particularly if you are in the midst of a snowstorm like we are in the UK at the moment.
Day 1: Get outside and walk
The fact it is miserable weather must not stop you from doing this! Even if you have to get your thick coat one, hood up, gloves on and brolly up…I promise you will feel better for getting your body moving and breathing in fresh air.
If you are lucky, you might naturally be walking around outside as part of your job. For most of us, we are sat in an overheated or over air-conditioned, stuffy office! It is easy to end up staying in an environment like that all day, getting straight into a car and then into our house. That lack of fresh air is not good for us. Breathing in fresh air is feeding our mind, body, spirit and soul. You can tell I am really into this…
Even if it is just a 5 minute walk during your lunch break, please take some time to do this one simple thing which could make a massive difference to your wellbeing. If this goes well, start to think of ways you could increase the time you are walking. Perhaps you could choose a spot in the car park further away, or suggest a ‘walking meeting’ with your colleague for a change.
I would love to hear if you do take the time to do this today…please comment below if so!
