    Place your Shoes Besides your Bed

    Taking a brisk walk every morning is very essential. Despite of knowing this, we forget to do it every morning. So, all you need to do is to simply place the jogging shoes besides your bed at night. The next morning when you wake up, you will find your sneakers staring at you and reminding you of the very essential walk.
