…. and RELAX!

We have just returned from a fabulous few days away at Croyde in our beloved and trusty camper van Louis.

I realise that camping is not the holiday choice for everyone but I absolutely love it. Having no access to wi-fi and no television means that we all completely switch off and can just get back to basics; talking, spending time together, sitting and looking at the view of the beach which is just a 10-15 minute walk away.

I immediately notice my mood improve as I’m not trying to do 2-3 things at once and I easily settle into the pace of life that camping dictates.

Can this be replicated into normal daily life on returning home? I am keen to make sure it does as this will boost my mental well-being which will subsequently have a positive effect on my physical health.

The actions that I am planning to implement are:

  • Reduced mobile phone and PC usage (no more endless scrolling through social media). Checking in at the beginning and end of the day and timing my work admin so I focus on the task in hand
  • Have a daily nature fix. I love listening to the birds singing as well as seeing trees and flowers springing into life
  • Slow down! Finish one job before starting another and setting time aside each day for a meditation – I have managed a four-day streak so far!

These few days away have also given me inspiration for a new personal training programme “Natural Fitness” which I will be launching by the end of June.

I will be reporting back next week to let you know of my progress.
