Since I've been traveling for work this week (that's why it's been a little quiet around here), I thought I would share a little story of someone I used to work with who used to use layovers as an opportunity to get in a few extra steps.
Carry-on in hand, he would circle (or if the terminal wouldn’t allow, walk up and down) the halls of the airport while he waited for his flight to arrive. An avid runner, he did it because he knew he wouldn't have the time to run on travel days so it was a way to stay in shape without running.
Reflecting back on this, it made me think about how we can take advantage of times where we can't do what we love but still move in the direction of our goals. In the case of my former co-worker, he couldn't do what he loved: run, but he could at least take some steps (pun intended) towards his goal: staying in shape.
Which got me thinking: What do you do with your layovers, at the airport and in life?
