Having behavioral changes and some tweaks to how you do your day-to-day isn’t easy. Aside from making radical improvements to your behavior, you’re basically creating a new space in which your life deviates from what you’re used to into something entirely new. It is never easy, but it’s something you should at least try, if it’s something that will improve your life.
Making Your Day Harder—the Idea
The idea for Make Your Day Harder came after a study was done that we have more times sitting and not standing up. While we’re living longer lives than our forebears, that doesn’t mean we’re living healthier, more pro-active lives than them. The name ‘Make Your Day Harder’ comes from the concept that we need more activity to justify our longer lives.
