Priority #1 for 2012: Exercise

2011 has been a very interesting year for me. It’s the year I found out that my body is in far better shape than I give it credit for. The fact that I’ve done almost nothing to aid that over the last 30 years is, however, somewhat troubling. So, for 2012, I’ve decided that the biggest priority for me is to get more exercise.

The funny thing about exercise is that you don’t really need to do a lot of it to start experiencing the benefits. And, you don’t really need to splurge on a gym, either. Just go take a walk. It really is that simple. If you’re getting absolutely no exercise right now, stepping up to nothing more than a brisk 30 minute walk every day will do wonders for your body. Assuming you’re already eating in a relatively healthy manner, a regular walk is all you really need to start burning off fat, increase your energy levels and generally feel better every day.

Walking for half an hour isn’t difficult. What’s difficult is making it a habit. This video is what got me to finally turn this into a real priority for 2012. I hope it does the trick for you, too.
