Being healthy and energetic has always been my number one priority. Whether it’s working out at the gym, playing my favorite sport or getting a group of friends together for a day out, I always make it point to be active everyday.
My daily mission is to MOVE, break out a little SWEAT and soak up a bit of SUN. It’s not just for the fantastic physical benefits, but ultimately for a clearer headspace and those beloved endorphins that leave me feeling refreshed!
Some of my favorite activities are running outdoors, working out at the gym with a friend, in-line skating, Muay Thai, yoga and badminton. If you’re wondering how one could possibly have the time to do all those things… well, you’ll just never know until you make that effort to DO it, right?
Sometimes I find that the hardest part about running is getting out of your warm, comfortable bed in the morning. But once you’ve laced up and start pounding the pavement, you don’t want to stop. The air is crisp and the sun welcomes you with its warm glow. It feels amazing to outdoors. The next day, I want to it all over again.
See, it’s all about leaving your comfort zone once in a while to enjoy something that can be truly rewarding not just for your well-being, but the wonderful experience you give for your mind and body.
Push yourself out of your comfort zone and see what you are made of! Try a new sport, do something different and add a bit of action and movement in your life today. Let’s ignite new and old passions, get a bit courageous, inquisitive and embrace active living. We only have one life after all, let’s make it fulfilling and worthwhile!
3 Tips On How To Be An Action Addict
1. Do activities you love and dare to try new things
Turn your interest in any sport into a hobby, or switch it up and pick up a new pursuit. Try to do something new every once in a while to keep things fun and exciting. Integrate exercise and movement into your daily life. Exercise your heart!
2. Involve your partner and/or friends in your activities
Having a workout partner is a sure fire way to boost motivation, plus it makes exercise a whole lot more enjoyable if you can share it and get caught up in the game with lots of giggles along the way.
3. Leave the rest to spontaneity
Do something on a whim, something without premeditated reasoning or debate. Something adventurous, brave, ridiculous even, anything that releases that inner kid within. It could be playing catch with your friends in an open field with a squirt gun (Songkran!), doing (or learning to do) a cartwheel, taking a road trip or helping out a charity cause. The limits are endless and you’ll find how good it feels to simply follow your heart. <3
There are multitudes of different ways to bring activeness into your everyday life, you just need a little imagination! So, get creative and be prepared to move out of your comfort zone and use these ideas as an opportunity to create your own fun action pursuit.
