Long time readers of Little Green Dot will know that I’m all about routines.
My daily routine used to consist of a bike ride at dawn, while listening to podcasts and audiobooks. And I loved it. It kept me fit, I spent time out of doors and I learned new ideas at the same time – it was perfect for me.
But then we had a big shake-up. We moved to Bali, I got so busy with my kids’ school and starting a new home, and the bike rides went away.
I’m not complaining – I’ve gained so much from being here. But you know that feeling, when you look up and go, “whoah – I’ve not done anything!!”
So I decided to start fresh.
I don’t have a bike here yet, so instead, I laced up my sneakers, put on my headphones and started going for walks.
I always listen to something that makes me feel good and on one of those walks, I was listened to a podcast that introduced me to a running app called Freeletics.
Let me tell you – I don’t run, I never have, not even to get out of the rain. But listening to this podcast, it sounded interesting and I have this habit of following my curiosities.
So I gave it a go…

And as a result this summer, something big happened.
I went from no exercise routine, to walking, and then running!
I’ve only run a total of 11 miles, but that’s more than I’ve ever run. Slow at first, but I’m getting faster and stronger – and it feels really good!
Look, everyone needs a fresh start. But what is for you that prompts you to look up and go “whoah”?
Me, I love staying in tune with the seasons. Even though I live in the tropics where its permanently Summer, we’ve just entered the second rice planting season of the year.

Nature is in transition, preparing for something new. And I think that’s a good reminder and and a good opportunity to look at where you are now, and decide whether you want to let go of old routines, start new ones or freshen things up.
And that’s something to celebrate!
