Secrets of Success

Go On Adventures!

MEMBERS SPARKED

I've started walking, jogging, and hiking outdoors four days per week. To keep things interesting, I've made a list of parks/trails near my house. Each trail has a number next to it. The night before I go, I use a number randomizer on Google to pick where I'm going to go for the next day's exercise. This keeps things fresh and interesting for me while taking away the stress of making decisions. I also add a number to the randomizer that stands for trying a new place. If I get that number, I try a park or trail that's not on the list. I've even found some great new parks and trails I'd never been to using this method. I get bored with exercise easily, so this really keeps me motivated. I look forward to my adventures!

This also adds a measure of safety for walkers and joggers. If you're choosing your routes at random, you will never get into a routine that predators could use to rob or attack you.

The variation is routine never allows me to plateau as well. Some of my paths are paved and flat, while others have a lot of hills and rough terrain. Some are very sunny while some are forested and shady.

This process had made me enjoy my exercise sti much more then I ever have in the past. I've been moving my body more and getting outdoors more. I feel great! And I've actually started using the number randomizer for other activities as well. I kind of hate making decisions and will put things off just because I don't want to commit. Now I randomize the next show I watch or book I read as well. Adding some spontaneity to your life can be liberating. De-stress and have fun!
