Week forty one in 'wake up'
Chris said from day one that not all the challenges in ‘wake up’ would work for everybody and this week’s challenge proved his point. Week forty one’s challenge was simply to stand up more.
The reason the challenge would have no effect on me was because in my job I’m on my feet 9-11 hours a day, five days out of seven. And for the remaining hours that I’m awake I’m probably on my feet for a further two-four hours. On my days off from work I do lots of walking and I’m on my feet often. When you live at the foot of the Malvern Hills it’s hard not to be inspired to walk them. In fact they entice you to their lofty heights and wonderful charm.
This week’s challenge didn’t reveal anything to me except a nudge to the future when I no longer do the job I’m doing now, the job I’ve done for nearly twelve years, to remember the importance of not having or leading a sedentary lifestyle. For that, the simple challenge of standing up more was worth noting for future reference. Cheers Chris, it’s been noted for future reference.
