Change Your Scenery
Something that I've always been aware of, but was just reminded of this week was how important it is to mix up your exercise routine to keep you motivated. I am spending the week in Newport Beach, California with my family, and I've been running outside here. It's like running has suddenly become so much more enjoyable. I was thinking about it as I ran, and I realize that I am definitely one to get stuck running the same path over and over, mostly because I know its exact distance, and how long it will take me. But, I have really enjoyed being able to just go and run and explore new place. I know we can't all run by the boardwalk, but find a new path in your neighborhood, go up the canyon, go for a hike, go for a swim, etc. You get the idea. Finding a new place will help keep your attention and will ensure adventure!
