I needed a break!
If you come to our gym then you will know I have just had a weeks holiday. It’s been 11 months since we opened the gym and it was just time for a break. I was starting to get tired. As most people do I didn’t think this would happen to me, we all think we are invincible, right?The early mornings and the late nights were starting to take their tole and the training every week for months on end meant my body was getting no real rest. Something had to give.
So I went away with family and friends and tried to get my mojo back. I think I have succeeded. I did no exercise (except carrying my 18 month year old son around the pool), didn’t focus too much on what I was eating, kept my phone in the safe in my room as much as possible and tried to get a nap or do some reading when my son had his nap. I now feel ready to get back into my training, my work and my life with renewed motivation and enthusiasm. You may be reading this and thinking I am telling you to don’t need to do as much or take a break. Not exactly. What I am saying is you need to find the balance in your life. We can’t be all work and no play. It’s about creating a balance that works for you. If you are struggling and feel like you have no time to yourself then pencil in some YOU time in the calendar and do whatever makes you happy. You may be looking for a fresh start, a change to you life. You maybe want to change the way you look and feel for the better. The balance works both ways.
