Get Up, Get Outside, and Enjoy Life

As parents of young children, we love getting outside and enjoying all our planet’s freebies.

However, we do have our challenges, and dealing with the digital world is one of them.

Rather than being so extreme and cutting out technology like a crazy person, we embrace it and use it to our advantage.

This does require some effort and understanding, but the benefits are beyond worth it.

So, if you are struggling with getting in shape, dealing with devices and technology, or flat-out getting off your butt to do something outside, I want to let you know that you are not alone.

Everyone struggles at one point in their life and that’s okay.

It’s the getting back up part that counts, regardless of what situation you are in.

Get Up

This is absolutely the hardest part.

There comes a point in life when we become comfortable and it’s not always in your favor.

You get lazy, you get complacent, and if done for a long period of time, can be the hardest thing to do.

So, if you are in this boat, know that getting up is not going to be easy, but it can and should be done.

The trick?

Just do it.

Whether you like it or not, get up and think of what it is that you are going to do.

Where can you go?

Who can you call?

Figure it out but don’t think about it too much.

Get Out

This is the fun part.

Once you get up, you can now get out and figure out what it is that you want to do.

If you have a bike, hop on it and see where the road takes you.

If you are still in lazy mode, drive to a park, the beach, or whatever natural landmark you have in your area.

Don’t complicate things and just get out there.

Enjoy Life

Life is too short to sit there and complain about everything.

I’m too bored.

I’m too lonely.

I hate my job.

There are so many things we can complain about but what good does it do for you?

Absolutely nothing.

Get out there, see what this wonderful planet has to offer, and remember that there’s a million and one things to be thankful for.

You’re welcome.
