Begins with a single step. I am quite sure that when Lao-Tzu was offering this ‘teaching’ he was referring to how right action naturally arises from stillness as I’ve always learned that another interpretation of this advice is “even the longest journey must begin where you stand.”
But, today, I am taking the literal quote and adding a little something else that statistical research has backed up lately and that is taking 10,000 steps a day can reduce your risk of getting cancer by anywhere from 20 to 50 percent! TWENTY TO FIFTY PERCENT REDUCED RISK OF GETTING CANCER by walking ten thousand steps a day.
If a journey of a thousand miles really does begin beneath one’s feet, the trip to health and wellness then begins by moving them.
