When I retired and left the corporate world 3 years ago, I decided to add better health and improved level of fitness as part of my goals. No matter how busy my schedule for the day is, I strive to exercise daily. However, I came to a point when I got bored with my fitness routine. I was toying with the idea of adding cycling to my regular TRX and walking routine. So after months of researching and consulting with friends, I finally decided to get a new bike!
Now, two months later, I realized that it’s the best fitness-related decision I’ve made so far. I have no regrets on finally buying the bike, regardless of how expensive I thought it was and how my kuripot side was complaining. On one of those mornings when I would go out and bike, I thought about the reasons why I haven’t biked in a long time. Surprisingly, these were similar to the reasons why I haven’t started blogging earlier than I did.
In this video and podcast episode, I talk about these startling similarities. Now that I am into biking, I am experiencing its benefits on both my health and lifestyle. I am managing boredom and I am healthier than I was before. It’s the same with blogging. The initial reasons of why I haven’t started blogging earlier than I did no longer matters. I’m reaping the benefits now and it is worth all the preparations that I’ve made years ago. Watch or listen to this episode to find out more.
