We have spent about ten days on Koster Island, Sweden.
It is a natural reserve, no cars, only bikes and walking.
I managed to make a couple of runs, and the landscape was stunning. I had to force myself to keep running, instead of stopping and observing.
The fresh air, beautiful colors, the smell of the sea and the forests were inviting for exercise all the time.
When running, it made me remember the five years I was living in Austria, among the pine trees, apple trees, and the hills. It was really like in the movie "Sound of music". It triggered me to do exercise.
Here in Koster Island, I did some good exercise every day, running, walking, cycling, or even a little swim in the cold sea.
It was so easy to go out and run.
In down-town Brussels, in the city centre, the environment is less inviting.
I thought it is not important, but in fact, the surroundings seem to have a strong effect on my motivation level for exercise.
Where do you live?
How much is it motivating you to do exercise or not?
