This is your conscience speaking:

No matter how busy you are, no matter how many directions your mind is going, no matter what devilish voice inside your head says, "You don't have time today . . . "

Make the time to walk your 2 to 4 miles each and every day.

Those miles will make you sweat a little, smile a little, and inhale a little nice, clean oxygen. It helps the brain synapses fire those motor neurons more efficiently, creating a fire in the brain.

AND it's a good time to forget problems, solve problems, invent new problems, or just plain enjoy the scenery.

2 to 4 a day. Important. Do it. Now.

This is your conscience. Over and out.

A few weeks ago I began walking an hour a four days a week with a friend. Every day I always find a reason that I should put it off, but because someone else is waiting I go. I just hope the snow holds off for a long time.

Dana: Good job! I can tell you from experience that I have never, ever, not once said, "Gee, I wish I hadn't gone for that walk!" But there have been numberous times over the years when I felt lousy and guilty when I DIDN'T take the time to go.

I also hope the snow holds off for a l-o-o-ong time. When it snows up in Canada, it's just a matter of time before it finds it way down to Minnesota. Let's aim for a first snowfall date of January 15th!

Okay, okay, I'm the guy who is guilty of not walking 2 to 4, not even 1, mile a day. Thank you, Conscience. I even have great new walking shoes, that are wide and long, and socks that cost $10.

This happens to every Minnesotan this time of year. I think it's our body's way of storing more fat for the long, hard, cold winter. UGH! Have you started looking at plane tix to Arizona yet? January sounds good!
