What did you do on Saturday?
Go to the gym, take the dog for a walk, run a half marathon? Or did you sit in front of the fire, puffing on the cigarette you haven’t smoked since the 1st of January with a can of beer that you were not supposed to be drinking throughout “Dry January?”
We all know that for many, if not most, humans, the spirit may be willing but the flesh is weak. In fact, in some cases, it’s not so much weak as puny.
That’s probably why so many of you (and us - we’re not immune to social trends at Peace) kick the good habits we resolved to keep at New Year. And in fact, the day most of us do it is the 12th of January, i.e. last Friday. Be honest, that’s not even two weeks. Surely, we could do better?
However, look on the bright side. You still haven’t quit your job yet – have you? That’s good, because you’ve actually got a few more weeks yet before you do that. Some studies suggest that the day when most British people are likely to quit their jobs is the 31st of January. Presumably that’s because, having given up the gym and all that exercise, they aren’t fit enough to make the effort to get in to the office or the building site…
