Ok, so The Conz don’t make resolutions.
But one thing I’d like to start doing more of again is going for long walks.
I walk a lot in general.
I mean the ones of the forty-minutes-or-longer variety.
I’ve got so much to do it’s easy to talk myself out of it. And with it being winter…well, that just whips up the rationalization hamster wheel even more. I admit I was shamed into lacing up my walking boots at least once last winter when I heard my 83-year-old clients were still getting their daily 90-minute ‘constitutional’ despite the very-sub-zero temperatures.
All that aside, I’ve found few things better for my wellbeing.
I don’t count steps. There’s no target mileage. I just walk. And I watch. I stare at things off in the distance. I let my body tell me if I should keep going or make for home. Another point: no treadmills allowed on this particular journey. You see, we Homo sapiens have a primal need to be outside…and most of us city-dwelling folk don’t do it nearly enough.
By the way, I’ve found this to be a great way to come up with content – little creativity tip for ya.
Some of my best emails have been ‘direct downloads’ I channeled during a walk, and that I couldn’t type out fast enough once I sat back down at my keyboard. I also get ideas for what to do. Solutions to problems or puzzles I’ve been struggling with often occur to me in the same fashion.
Many great thinkers knew this little secret. Einstein’s daily walk was sacred to him. Darwin did three 45-minute walks per day.
What’s the point of such ramblings?
I invite you to join me in boosting the step count, if you’re not already.
It doesn’t have to be every day.
We can aim for two or three days a week.
Just do this consistently and you’ll be amazed at what happens.
Then, write me back and share your story.
I’ll be genuinely curious.
See you out there,
P.S. In my next email marketing tip (Tuesday) I reveal the #1 thing you must do in every email if you want to make sales. Get this one thing right, and you can do pretty much do everything else wrong and still get business.
