There are 4 storeys to my classroom and no lift. I climb the steps about 7-8 times a day, that's exercising, isn't it?
That's excellent exercise -especially at a fast rate (are you allowed to run in school?)

Re: How to motivate a lazy bastard in Geneva?

I had my brisk, 20 minute walk today. In ice-rain (which is why it was brisk in all senses of the word).

What do you have to report, McTAVGE?

Re: How to motivate a lazy bastard in Geneva?

So, no time to read all of the responses , so sorry if it is repetitive.

First you may want to stop calling your self lazy. That is a put down. That is one word I do not allow with my clients. It's all about motivation. But not in the form of goals. Too much anxiety, I have to, need to, should. What do you really want to do and put that in a vision.

Next keep it simple. We set goals too high. too much. Just like new years resolutions. Only to give up because it is overwhelming. Take some short walks then increase with time. Progress not perfection.

AQ motivation to live longer is a great motivation. I am 65 and feeling well. Quit smoking and drinking in my life. Diagnosed diabetic. Took off 15 kilos. No more pills.

But this was all done over years, one project at a time.

Volunteer to walk the homeless dogs. No better motivator and coach than a four footer (over)eager for a walk. And when you are feeling lazy and the sofa looks inviting, remember: the dogs need you...

Apologies all but I like the OP would love to increase my exercice level and this idea got me excited. I am in Richterswil but can go all the way up to Zurich to get a doggy walk me.

Would you know of any shelter that would welcome people to walk dogs?

My husband and I are enthusiastic dog lovers, also lazy to do sports and too busy to have our own
