In our increasingly fast paced world it seems like we never have enough time to spend with those we love or to get the important things done. I’ve found that when I stop thinking and procrastinating and instead start acting, even for a few minutes, I get much more accomplished than I otherwise would have. What a concept eh?
This is why I have created “Take a Minute Tuesdays” here as a regular feature on Kevin’s Corner, to give myself and you readers a small weekly dose of an action you can take to enhance your life or the lives of those around you.
Take a minute to do something outside
This past week and especially the past few days we have been enjoying unseasonably warm weather for late January in Calgary. Setting a new temperature record of 17 degrees on Sunday and reaching 12 degrees on Monday. I took the opportunity to go for a nice walk along the river Saturday morning and then a run, in my shorts on Sunday, it was awesome!
Living in Canada, the winter can be long, and we spend the vast majority of our time indoors. When it is -20 and snowing sideways, that’s hard to fault, but when it is nice out, get outside! The feel of sun on your skin, and fresh air in your lungs, will make you feel good. The health benefits are numerous as are the psychological ones!
So today take a few minutes to go outside for a walk, run or other outdoor activity, your body and spirit will thank you! With the wintry blast they are getting out east I think it is especially important for those of us out west to do this, the next blast of winter is probably right around the corner!
Have a great Tuesday!
