Walk Yourself Awake
Need to wake up? Go for a walk!
Going for a short walk first thing in the morning gets the brain fired up.
This morning, I went for a 30 minute walk and felt pretty awake most of the day.
I am going to give it a try tomorrow as well.
Get a good nights sleep, take a shower, eat some food and walk.
It also helps me pretend I am walking to work. Instead of rolling out of bed and starting to work.
I have been getting up, showering and having breakfast, but not walking.
It will be interesting to see how well it continues to work.
Maybe I will sleep better, which would be amazing!
Do you like to do activities in the morning that get you going?
Maybe your day already ingrates it in, like walking to work.
Or, being in front of a group of people (kids) and moving around while giving instructions.
Office workers and drivers have it tough.
There is a lot of sitting, unless you decide to be different and set a reminder to move every once in awhile.
Bringing your lunch to work can be a good thing, but it can also lead to eating at your desk.
That is not such a good thing.
Of course, every now and then, it might need to be done…
Most of the time, taking at least 20 minutes to eat your lunch is great break during the day.
Middle of the Day Walk
When I was between semesters of school and working a full time temp job, lunch was my walking time.
I wasn’t really there, at the temp job, to make friends. Plus, the job was mindless.
To stay a wake in the afternoon, I needed to get my circulation pumping.
Granted, at the time my nutrition was awful.
A diet coke does not a meal make!
I was in my early twenties, so give me a break.
Now that I know more it is still a challenge to consistently choose wisely as to what my next meal will be.
As fatigue and tiredness hits, less thinking and more feeling is involved.
Try a walk to wake up, any time of day and see what happens for you.
Train a little, walk a little, and stay awake. Cheers!!
