Small Change #3 – Get off your couch

From the 52 Small Changes book:

An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body

                                                                                    – General George S. Patton

Last week’s change didn’t exactly go down very well – my fitbit sleep data suggests I didn’t do as well as I thought I would (averaged 6 hours 7 minutes of sleep as against 5 hours 52 minutes the week before); still shy of the 7 hour target. On a slightly more positive note, my water drinking challenge continues apace, thanks to my 600ml mug perched right next to my bed it seems.

This week the challenge is to get more active, something I am already doing a lot of between walking to and from work, church and the shops and going to the gym thrice a week.

For the plan this week, two main things stand out as potential focus areas:

  1. Take an active lunch – not have lunch at my desk this week but go somewhere further than I usually do (loads of different places in Union Square :))
  2. Take the stairs at work rather than the elevator.
