Yesterday I commented to my husband that he takes a totally different route from his office to the kitchen than I do. On the surface, it’s a “so what” thing. But his explanation of why was very interesting. It actually speaks to our way of thinking.
We have a house that has multiple ways to enter each room. In fact, it has a circular flow – start here, go through all the connecting rooms and wind up where you started with no backtracking. He walks from his office, across the entryway, turns right, walks down the hallway and winds up in the kitchen. I usually go from his office, walk through the entry area, then left through the family room which is open to the kitchen. So what’s the point? His contemplative, engineering mind determined his way is just 1 turn, 2 straight legs.
With all the health concerns and solutions blasting the airwaves, it’s easy to get confused about what’s good and what isn’t. It’s a catch 22.
Sometimes it’s easier to NOT make changes. Skip the workout and check the pantry for snacks. What’s on TV tonight?
