get up and go

One thing I have learned during unemployment is to get up and go take a walk, first thing. For a while, I tried to keep the walk as a reward at the end of the day, but that does not work. 

First of all, if I don't get done what I intend to get done, I never get outside during daylight. Not okay.

Second, it's hard to get started on real work. If I've gone for a walk, I feel like something has already been accomplished, and it's just about continuing to get things done.

Third - and this is true throughout the western part of State of Happiness - the clouds often roll in by afternoon. If I want to enjoy the sun, I have to get out in the morning. This place teaches procrastination. It teaches you to seize the moment.
