Shorts Spurts of Exercise

field along the edge of the woods

I must admit - I spend way too much time in front of the computer.

Being self-employed for the last 10 years is the main reason for this, and if we do not work, we do not get paid.

And getting paid is getting harder and harder to do these days with the economy as it is.

Working from home though does have its benefits when it comes to time.

Taking 10 minutes each hour to get up and walk around outside the house is easier to do when there is no boss hanging over your shoulder.

And these short spurts of movement really wake you up and make your feel more energized.

The ability to concentrate is renewed and you can actually feel your metabolism still in gear after you have returned to work sitting in your chair.

I took my last walk for the day a few minutes ago.

It is almost 8:00 pm and the twilight is moving in. I hear the peepers in the distance. The robins are protesting my walk, and the cool air from the edge of woods caresses my arms and legs as I pass by.

These walks are not good for just the exercise they give - the spirit gets a boost too.

All the senses are enhanced and it all works for a more healthy person in all aspects - body and soul.


  1. I LOVE taking walks! It's practically my exercise when I don't get to jog in the morning. I take a lot of walks. :)

  2. Hi Mara- it's one of the best things for us! Thanks for stopping by!
