Recently, I was inspired by Google’s Matt Cutts TED talk on how he made a few simple changes in his lifestyle and tried them for 30 days. With the tendency to be more desk bound as a consultant, I have found more weight has slowly crept on, much to my dismay, which is not good for general health and well being. I decided to do something about it.
My goals were to:
- do more walking (an hour a day)
- eat smaller portions
- cut out sugar
- get outside more
- experiment with a new work flow using some tools and apps I recently signed up for.
So far this month, the plan is doing well. In Boston last week, for example, I probably walked more in 4 days than I had in the previous 2 months! I’m now thinking of getting a Fitbit and recording my exercise/step levels to see what impact that has.
The video is well worth watching and only 3.5 mins long – check it out!
What health and well being changes are you making in your life?
