Keep your eyes on the blue skies ahead
We are nervous, hopeful, scared and passionate all at the same time. How do we keep believing and moving forward?
RESET Roundup 2021.
This summer was all about RESETTING. For me that meant getting back to the basics, cleansing and realigning myself with God and nature. I spent a lot of time in reflection and in prayer. I spent a lot of my time with the good book and this is what I know now…..
Nope, Summer isn’t over yet! For some of you, summer vacation is just getting started. Maybe you’ve been following along and getting the urge to go chasing waterfalls too. Well, I’ve been adventuring all summer and trying to make the most of my weekends. It doesn’t always have to be a big ordeal, sometimes just a day trip is good enough to refresh. Here are a few apps I use to find great spots to go and adventures for every level.
There really isn’t anything like getting outside away from wifi and just being in nature to reset, get inspired and just truly rest.
After writing the RESET-90 Happy Healthy days program I really wanted to have my own time to just unwind, reflect and recharge. I really think it’s important to do that every once in a while. Resetting may look different for different people at different times but for me, I’ve really had an urge to be outside and away from the hustle. I find that being in nature helps me connect with my creative side and allows me to just flow in a way that feels natural. Good sleep, exercise, creative activities and good food are all part of my perfect reset.
I spent the extra time reading, playing my guitar, painting and paddling. Although there were fires in the area it didn’t seem to bother me. I napped when the bugs started to get busy in the afternoon and just enjoyed the slow pace of the day. Each day was a little different and I had plenty of visitors but some of the days I got to enjoy all to myself which I am very thankful for.
I don’t know about you but getting back on track can seem like a redundant endeavour. It seems like no matter how long you’re rolling on a good track it’s not long before you need a refresher or reboot. Yes, if you are like me you have been working on your fitness goals for most of your adult life but there always seems to be a season where you feel the need for an overhaul. Does it ever actually get easier you might wonder? But I would say yes, I would say over time it becomes easier to know what to do to get back on track and it gets easier because you know what to expect from your effort. A lot of the fitness lifestyle is trial and error. Trying different diets, trying different workouts and ways to stay active. Different friend groups and modes of motivation such as challenges and competitions. All these things play a part in your long-term success and ease of looking and feeling your best. There are some obvious and not-so-obvious choices we make daily that affect us in the long run and will determine how many times we get knocked off course.
If there was a place that you don’t want to miss it’s Europe but more importantly Greece. There are some amazing places in this world and maybe we all relate to different places differently but for me Greece was on the bucket list and I was so excited to go and check this big one off the list.
