Have to drop out. Devastating coinciding occurrences have overwhelmed me and upended my life. Cat (18 years) passed away and I am being displaced from my home of almost 40 years. I just turned 65 and there's...I don't know. I just know I have to concentrate all my energy on surviving and finding another place to live that I can afford. Best to all and I hope to have the chance to rejoin someday!💗 Carole

@Cyncia85 I switched to a sedentary job three years ago and two of those years I was completing my masters, so I know all about not having time to move around. This year though, since May I have put my activity as a priority. I wake up earlier and I go for a walk before work and try to get at least 4 to 5000 steps before I work. Then I eat (pre-packed) lunch at my desk, but I use my break to go get at least a 30 minute walk. I wear dress clothes so I keep gym shoes in my office now. And in the evenings, or right after work, whichever one works, I walk again.
It takes planning and commitment, but now it’s become my routine and it feels good mentally too. I shared an article a couple weeks ago that said a 15 minute nature walk reduces brain fatigue and I have definitely noticed that benefit when I’m working at my desk and feeling drained.
Hope that helps!
