I am driven by adventure. I am driven by the need to be busy on the go and over achieving. Sometimes you need to recharge.

I am always switched on thinking about what I have to do next, the next workout the next job, the next meal, next catch up with friends. I am always thinking. However I recently went to my Dads place in Spain and couldn’t have been more switched off. The result?

I slept for hours, I ate loads, I walked miles, I sat by the pool and drank beer.

I realised that I have not relaxed for an extended period of time for a while. I know some of you will laugh and say you were travelling the world last year you were always relaxed but the reality was I was constantly worried. Worried about the next pay check, worrying about the next place to stay, worrying about picking up some more work, worrying about the pets I was looking after, worrying about meeting new people  and not spending all day every day alone.

I am sure anyone who has travelled long term can tell you it is not all sunset beers, beach days and laughing with new friends.

So why can I relax now? I am finally comfortable. I am in a stable place with a steady job, I have a few freelance clients and a few business ideas up my sleeve. I am by no means settled I don’t think I will ever be that; there are far to many places to go and people to meet for that but I can see the future that I am carving out for myself and I am very happy with the way it is looking.

Part of my time in Spain was spent reading “breaking the habit of being you” by Joe Dispenza which I would recommend to everyone. It talks you through the science of meditation and how using quantum physics you can bring into your life what you deserve so over the next 4-8 weeks I will be working on learning to calm down my brain waves, breaking into my subconscious and really getting to grips with who I am and who I want to be.

Watch this space could be an interesting journey.

    I’ve been feeling that way too! When we travel, we go, go, go and when we’re home it’s blog, blog, blog and I feel like we have no real time to just relaxxxxxxxxx. I wish you luck on calming down your mind! #feetdotravel

    Omg I can relate to this so much, I went to visit my mom in Spain a week ago and it was the most relaxing holiday I had in years. I slept a lot, I ate loads of Spanish dishes, I hiked and I sat at the pool for hours. Sometimes is good to just take time for yourself.

  3. This is so timely and I can totally relate. The merry-go-round is real and although I wouldn’t have it any other way, I’ll be interested in your journey to pick up some tips. 😉

  4. I like your suggestion of mediation. I try to do that every day which helps with any stress or anxiety with my travels. I will have to check out the book. Thanks for sharing! #feetdotravel
