Challenge #4

Get Moving!

Okay, it’s not summer anymore but it’s still nice out! All the more reason to get outside and walk around – and what better place to do it than the city of Boston?

Regular exercise is essential to weight management and improves overall health, well-being and mood, but it often gets pushed aside due to our many other commitments.  However, even if you don’t have enough time to get to the gym during this busy time of year, you can still renew your commitment to making exercise a part of your life. One of the easiest and best ways to get this exercise is simply to walk –and it’s a great cardiovascular activity! So what if you don’t have lots of extra time? Use the following ideas to help you get the exercise you need:

  • Schedule a time to walk. Set aside a time to go on a short walk outside just like you schedule time for homework or other activities.
  • Have friends join you. The more fun you make your exercise routine, the easier it will seem.
  • Park farther away and walk a little more to your destination.
  • Set a goal. Use the pedometers we handed out at the Comm Ave Fair to track your steps each day. Set a goal for the week and walk each day to meet that goal. The ultimate goal: Try to reach 10,000 steps each day!

Need some inspiration? Our very own Danka Charland started a pedometer walk from Boston to San Francisco on March 17, 2010 and when she reached SF, continued on to pursue Anchorage, Alaska. After reaching Anchorage, she will continue on to Moscow and then to Poland through Gdansk, and finally to Borzestowo, her home town in Poland. Danka’s total route is 11,093 miles long and she hopes to reach her destination on July 15, 2013.

To win this week’s raffle: If you have one, upload a picture of your pedometer that shows the amount of steps you’ve taken so far to Sargent College’s Facebook page. If you don’t have a pedometer, time yourself when you walk and post a comment telling us how long you’ve walked so far.

“Be the kind of person who dares to face life’s challenges and overcome them rather than dodging them.” “Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” “The key to life is accepting challenges. Once someone stops doing this, he’s dead.”

Life is about accepting the challenges along the way, choosing to keep moving forward, and savoring the journey.
