Just got home from school or work? Or perhaps you’re at school or work right now? Or, maybe you’re up late surfing the net? Or something completely different… Whatever the case, you are in fact in front of the screen. That’s right, I can see you!
Odds are you’ve spent quite a lot of time in front of a computer today. And if you haven’t yet, it’s likely that you will during the day. Correct? Perhaps you’ve been playing TrackMania (or other game of choice) or surfing the net, and perhaps you plan to continue to do so for a while longer. Here’s a hint: don’t!
You’re a moderately health man/woman. You might be a bit overweight. You might be slim but, when it comes to it, not very physically balanced. Ask yourself how much time you’ve spent exercising during the past month or so. Have you been to the gym? Gone for regular walks? Or at least been outside for a few minutes every day? I’d assume most people can answer “yes” to the last one. But is that enough?
You know you should get out more. You are aware of it, but do you actually do something about it? No, you think to yourself “just one more task to complete” or “just one more website to visit”. “Let me just play one more track…”
Once you’ve read this, I want you to close the screen, save and quit all the tasks you’re working on, and just get out. Go for a walk. Do some gardening. Or even just sit on your balcony reading a good book. It’s at least better than staying here, in the chair you’re currently in. If you’re at work or school, don’t sit down in front of the computer once you get home. Get outside instead. Feel the fresh air.
In a few hours, or even just minutes if you prefer, when you’ve been outside for a while, you can come back here and leave a comment. But until then, GET OUT! You know it’s the right thing to do, for your own sake.
