Many of us make resolutions to better ourselves every New Year’s Eve. But why wait?
September is Self-Improvement Month, so there’s no time like the present to find ways to improve our mood, our health, and our quality of life. Exercise is one of the best ways to do all three.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with day-to-day trivialities, which leads us to putting off things, like working out, that we know will make us feel better. That’s why the tried-and-true method of “baby steps” has endured for generations.
“Change doesn’t happen until people alter their behavior, and they don’t alter their behavior unless they start with the small,” says Harvard philosophy professor Michael Puett in “The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life.”
For example, telling yourself you’ll run for an hour every day can be too intimidating to even get started. Instead, you could resolve to walk 15 minutes every day this week, 30 next week, 45 the next, etc. Start adding in intervals of jogging, and before you know it, you’ll be running that hour every day!
The more consistent your efforts, the sooner you’ll reach your destination. So as long as you’re doing something consistently – even if it’s something small – you will ultimately accomplish your goal.
If allergies are preventing you from getting outdoors, try wearing a pureAir SOLO personal air purifier. It gives you a four-foot zone of clean, fresh air everywhere you go by actively repelling allergens so you can breathe easier during and after your workout. pureAir SOLO is also great for reducing pathogens like bacteria and viruses in your breathing space whether you are exercising indoors or out.
If you work out at home, our other pureAir purifiers give you an entire room of fresh air and can even clean the air and exposed surfaces throughout your house! pureAir 3000 and pureAir 1500 sanitize up to 3,000 or 1,500 square feet respectively. From ceiling to floor and all the air and surfaces in-between, pureAir eradicates multiple contaminants for clean air everywhere.
For smaller spaces, up to 850 square feet, our pureAir 500 is a simple, affordable device to clear the air of allergens, odors, and more. With our advanced active purification technologies, you can purify the air continuously, use the burst setting for tougher odors, or even deep clean while you’re away.
And pureAir 50 is as simple to use as it gets – just plug it in and choose your desired level of purification by adjusting the dial. It’s perfect for small rooms, your home gym, or simple purification while traveling or on the go.
So start making those small, incremental improvements, reach your big goal, and celebrate. You might exceed your wildest expectations!
