The 12 Day Reboot - Day 12

Day 12 (to be completed January 13th) --Go for a walk.

Find 15 minutes today to go for a walk. It could be during your lunch break, when you get home from work, or after your workout. Yes, I know it's cold outside, but it is also beautiful. Now, because all of you are CrossFitters you’re probably thinking, “well this isn’t going to be hard”. You are right and that’s fine.  “Hard” was never the idea. Making time to go for a walk gives priority to giving your mind a rest from the frenetic pace of everyday life.  Of course, all that is negated if you just think about all the stuff you have to do when you’re done walking, so don’t. Just walk.  Take in the surroundings, smell the clean mountain air, breathe, and just let your mind slow down.  No phones, no music, no multi-task problem solving. Just walk.
