The Benefits of Travelling

I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?

Feeling Calm #66

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Well we are home after an epic holiday. I’m almost caught up on the laundry and I’m thoroughly exhausted! It’s been a busy week but so much fun, with a few calm moments too.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #64

For my birthday last year I received a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little.

It’s sunny, it’s hot. I’m on holiday next week. Life is good. But blimey being on holiday next week means I’m beyond busy this week. I’m almost prepared, almost. I mean nothing is packed nor planned. But how long does that take?!

Feeling Calm #62

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Well I nearly skipped this week, but the reasons I nearly skipped it are the exact same reasons I needed to write it.

I’ve been feeling more than a little overwhelmed these last few days. Logically there’s no real reason for it, so I know it is just me and my issues. I have been putting things off which is ridiculous as it doesn’t help. I’m tired, so tired, in fact I opened up my laptop to start writing, then promptly fell asleep. It is the middle of the day!

Now, however, I’m awake. With lots to do. Starting with my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
