The 21st century is a hectic one, and each year people just seem to get busier and busier. Instead of living, they are trying to keep up with everything around them. Technology has had an immense impact on our lives and has made many things easier. However, in making things easier and faster, we now have more time to cram other stuff in. The free time that we should have had is now swamped with more work.
One of the most significant aspects of our lives that has taken a knock is our relationships. Social media has opened up the lives of friends and strangers alike. However, the negative studies on social media are mounting. More counts of depression and anti-social behavior are being logged, and people seem to be getting further removed from one another.
However, this is an exciting age to live in, and if you can navigate the minefields, you could have a blast. Never before has there been an age with so many things to do. The access that we have to the world is unparalleled. You won’t be trying to survive life. You will be living it.
30. Take a stroll
Back in the day, people used to walk everywhere. If they didn’t walk, they were on horseback. Regardless of where you wanted to go, travel took physical effort. Now we are spoiled with cars, planes, escalators and elevators. What’s more is that most of our jobs require us to sit down for hours on end. It’s no wonder why there are so many obese people.
Because we don’t move around as much anymore, our body becomes lazy and doesn’t excrete the endorphins it used to. Before long, you hate your job and you become depressed. In some cases, it’s not your job that is at fault, but the fact that you don’t get exercise that makes you feel crappy.
Taking a regular stroll will help your body excrete the feel-good endorphins and get your blood pumping again. Your heart will love you for it, and your mood will improve.
