A 2009 project is reducing my carbon footprint. A great by-product of this is that I am getting more exercise too.
The other day I walked approximately 5.5 kms to get between my appointments in the city.
The overall time for walking was about one hour, and this was split up over four walks.
An unanticipated benefit of these walks is thinking time between meetings. Usually I rush to get a taxi and rush right into the meeting.
But now with the little walks in between there is time to think, daydream and see what is going on around town.
As result I’m aware of how much construction is going on in the Sydney CBD these days, found a great bookshop down near World Square, and some good places to pick up lunch.
None of this was possible with my old model of rushing about in taxis. And I get a good feeling from more exercise and knowing that my carbon footprint (among other things) is getting smaller.
