The slogan was first coined in 1987 and has now been used for years to promote Nike products in most campaigns.

The truth is…what does “Just do it” really mean and how can you apply this slogan to your life?

Often, you will hear people talk about their future dreams saying “once I get this, I’ll start.” Stop waiting, start today.

Sometimes you think you need to have everything figured out to start a business or pick a new career path, but you don’t. You just need to start.

Everyone always says that they want to exercise more or they make a New Year’s resolution to join a gym, but they often don’t follow through with their actions.

Take this as your sign to “Just do it.”

Join that gym, go for that run or do that yoga! It’s better to start sooner than later and luckily Humber’s North and Lakeshore campus offer free facilities!

Plan that vacation

Making friends isn’t always easy, but it can be easier if you apply the “Just do it” mentality. Strike up a conversation with one of your classmates or a co-worker that maybe you haven’t really chatted with before. And remember, just be yourself and don’t worry about being embarrassed.

Who knows you might just make a friend for life!
