As I’m writing this, we just got back from holiday the previous evening, and I wanted to pop on here to have a little chat. It’s been a fantastic 5 days, and I would sum it up by saying it was the perfect break away to create space.

I created space in my mind with lots of reading, and relaxing. I created some space in my body with daily yoga practices, and lots of walking. We created space for us as a couple by spending some much-needed quality time together. Everything just flowed by easy breezy, and it was blissful. I was able to daydream, think, manifest goals for the future with no time pressures or restraints.

It isn’t until you go away and aren’t doing the same daily routines do you realise how much you needed an interval. A change in the ordinary.

I’m hoping to hold onto this feeling a little bit longer, and hopefully remember this as a great lesson and reminder to just breathe, and let things be. I definitely need to take parts of this holiday back into my day to day life, such as walking more, spending more time offline, and not rushing around as much.

I’m sure you are all reading how zen I am feeling right now, so I’ll leave it at that!

Are you going away on holiday this year?

  • This sounds like such a lovely little break! Daily yoga, lots of reading and walking sounds like perfection. We haven’t managed to get any holidays or breaks booked this year yet as our diaries are looking a little crazy, but I am hoping to get away at some point because I’d very much like a bit of that blissful zen feeling xxx

      Oh I hope you get one booked soon lovely! You deffo deserve one xxx

  • Ah this sounds like EXACTLY what I need right now. Things are getting way too much, and I am overwhelmed by every element of life! I crave a bit of down time to create that space, especially with the boyf – daily life can get waaay too much, you need time away from the norm to get things in check I think. We are off to France next month, I cannot bloody wait. Enjoy the zen my love. Immy x

    This sounds like exactly what I need right about now! Life seems to be such a whirlwind at the moment. Just need to bring a bit of that vacation mindset into my working days.

      Yes! Maybe I should do a post on it?

      • Shannon

        Definitely! Would love to read it.

  • Funny you ask, I go to Punta Cana next week and I cannot be more excited. The beach is probably my favourite place in the whole world.

      I’m always happy to see a new post pop up on my blog feed from you lady! I love them x

  • Good that you had a great time on your holiday! Cannot wait to spend mine too. I haven’t taken a break with my routine for a while since I cannot afford to travel and let my mind be free right now. I have to think of what’s best for my baby boy(i am an expecting mother of a baby boy). Thanks for this realization! 🙂
