A few weeks ago I posted on Facebook about a couple of lessons that I learned while out on my daily power walk.
First, it was hot as balls.
31 degrees Celsius–36 degrees with the humid-ex–and I did a 5 km walk.
It was Hot. as. Fuck. ( I have to mention that again)
It was one of those days that I found myself not in the best frame of mind.
I was feeling very impatient and over-sensitive (big baby mode). Things were just rubbing me the wrong way.
As exercise is one of my 4 daily non-negotiables, this walk was getting done.
No. Matter. What.
I headed down to one of my regular walking areas and set out to hit 5 k.
I really wasn’t pumped for the walk, and on top of that, it was HOT (yup 3rd time I mention it – cause it was damned hot!!)
As the walk progressed I focused on just moving and breathing.
Then I started to take in the sights around me.
As I walked along I could feel my impatience giving way.
I began to think more freely and I was breathing deeper and calmer. The heat and steady movement was seeing to that.
I just let myself go as I walked.
By halfway through the walk I physically felt much better.
By the end of the walk, I was sweating profusely and I felt 1000% better.
My mind was clearer, the burden from earlier in the day was lifted.
It wasn’t until the end of the walk as I was sitting on a bench that I realized just how much the Demons in my head had been running rampant.
As I said earlier–with the mood I was in–I wasn’t motivated or looking forward to that walk.
But it was one of my daily non-negotiables
And daily non-negotiables GET DONE!
That’s why they are so important and damned effective.
The 4 daily non-negotiables just pull us along towards progress and results even when we don’t want to.
