You may have heard it like “A Journey of thousand miles begins with a single step”. Both of them service the meaning and we all know it. But do we do it? Hardly few of us finish what we start. For most of us, the beginning is very tough. We tend to procrastinate and wait for Mondays to make a new beginning. And when Mondays come, we find excuses and delay the task with endless procrastination.
A Simple Self Improvement Challenge
We need to fight the hardest battle with our mind to make things happen. So, let’s challenge ourselves. Make a commitment of riding a bicycle for at least half an hour a day. In addition to the tremendous health benefits of the bicycle ride, you also get to develop the habit of doing things regularly and consistently. People are not born with magical gifts but they’re given this most beautiful and mysterious thing called Brain which makes us super-humans. Consistency is the key.
By doing this challenge, you can’t abandon cycling when you feel exhausted. You get to reach your home so you have no option but to push your limits. This breaks your mental barrier of achieving things. You develop a new habit which pulls you towards the destination and finish what you’ve started by ease.
So, here are the rules.
- You must have a bicycle
- You must cycle outdoors.
- You aim for 5 km ride or half an hour ride a day.
Benefits of Cycling Daily
- Increased Joint Mobility
- Increased Stamina
- Increased Balance
- Increased Metabolism
- Increased Hand-Eye Coordination
These are only a few of the benefits cycling provides us. We’ll try listing them all in a separate blog post. Since you need to burn at least 2000 calories a week through exercise, cycling an hour can burn up to 300 calories.
You get to develop the habit of finishing what you’ve started. But, you need to begin by having a bicycle.
