“You want to do more, but you just feel tired in the evening. Here's how to take it in stride.”
You had a tough day at work. You-know-who gave you a hard time, customers were rude, and you wore two different shoes to the office. You deserve to sit in front of the tube and veg out. Naw. You're tougher than that. Instead, slip on your tennis shoes and get out the door. Walk around your neighborhood, or drive to a park or nature center and hike around for a while. Simply stroll or power walk while you pump your arms. Soak in the beauty of your surroundings...or make a mental list of which neighbors have "interesting" yard items. In the time it takes to see an abandoned piece of clothing, flowerpots that will never be watered, and grills that have seen better days, you'll realize you have been re-energized.
