So I was in Italy the other week
For my brother’s wedding for 2 days…
Great to see family I have never met before
Get some sun and sea
Albeit for a day..
As despite the 5 hours at the airport
Where I was sleeping on the floor only
To be woken up by security twice for taking up too much room on a chair…
^^ my leg was on the chair haha
And the hour delay on the way back.
And the morning of the flight back
Despite being a little hungover from red vino and Amoro (an Italian liquor meant to be good for digestion haha not sure of the science behind that)
I had an amazingly productive morning..
A walk to find a beach
Swim in the sea
A live morning chat
Check ins with clients
Another swim in the sea
Then back to the airport
For catch up calls
Once upon a time
I would have been annoyed at the delays
There is one thing that sticks in my head
‘Mental health needs physical support’
When I move
Be more active
Regardless of how I feel at the time..
I ALWAYS feel better for it.
And it makes me better able to deal with any stress
Throughout the day
And this is coming from a personal trainer, coach, nutritionist
Who does NOT really enjoy exercise
But rather enjoy having done exercise.
The key part?
Act based on how you want to feel rather than how you currently feel 🙂
