What is an ocean but a collection of droplets?

Everyone wants to workout and then not think about health or fitness for the rest of the day. ‘Getting done’ seems to be all the rage now and smart fitness marketers seem to ride the wave pretty well. I’m not one to smartly market BS so I’ll tell you this – sustainable long term fitness results not from workouts you force yourself to do, but from activities that you can’t stop yourself from doing.
Become that person. Park the car slightly away from where you intend to go. Always, and I repeat always, take the stairs and encourage people with you to do the same. Carry your own groceries. Help someone carry something. Lift your luggage instead of rolling it. Take the trash out. Stand for no reason. Walk even when you get the slightest chance. Be greedy for work.
Collect every single droplet of activity that comes your way and you’ll realize that the ocean isn’t as big as you thought it was.
