A recent disappointment had me thinking of going on a long Forest Gump type run. But I realised that really wasn’t the best course of action. So instead, I decided I would go walking for an hour each day — for 21 days. 21 days because that’s how long it typically takes to create or change a habit. That was 2 days ago, so only another 19 more before goal is accomplished. For the record, this is not a new year’s resolution. It is simply a course of action — along with regular visits to an acupuncturist — to improve health and manage stress.
