I sit in front of my desk all day. From 8.30 am to 5.30 pm. Sometimes more. I wake up at 7.00. I don’t have time to got to a gym or run in the morning, come back home, shower, get changed then go to work. And if I do, the whole experience will be stressful and I will be packed in the tube like a tuna at 9 am.
During my hour long lunch time, I eat with people. Again, running like crazy to the gym or the park then coming back to work is not ideal.
After work, I’m hungry. I’m tired. I want to go back home. My mind makes up 20 excuses not to go out and be active. That’s what we call Laziness.
Sitting in the bus in the morning then fighting to find a seat in the tube. I can go on and on on how much I sit and how much I sat and moan and make you feel bad and make me feel bad and make you feel guilty about the tuna//mayonnaise sandwich you are eating right now while reading this article.
The point is, yes it will take you one hour to walk to work everyday. But it is not a waste of time. It is one hour less of sitting on the chair everyday. And then…You don’t have to go to the gym everyday. You can go at the weekend. And also, if you’re a woman, you’re reducing your chance of getting breast cancer by 25 %. And if you’re a man, your risk of getting diabetes.
So yes. Go walk.
