Tom and I have both found this year that regular exercise works well for us. It stretches your limbs, makes you fitter and calms the mind… all obvious really.
However, when it’s cold outside and you have to get up at 5am it can be hard. So Tom has invented our exercise motivation chart. Here’s how it works…
Each two-week period we set an exercise goal. Tom’s is currently around running, mine is to exercise each weekend day because that’s a time I often don’t. Of course, I’m still exercising through the week too but that’s not part of the goal. If you meet your goal you get a $25 reward of your choice that you set at the time of setting your goal. My first reward was $25 worth of flowers (I’m still to collect) and Tom’s was Hell Boy volume one.
Here’s a photo of today’s exercise for me – an atmospheric walk in the Featherston rain with my friend Ellen.
