I’ve recently been away on a training weekend for ladies, which was frankly amazing.
Hard, but amazing.
Each day consisted of hours of training – wrestling, judo, jiu jitsu and just lots of moving about! At 35, it only took a day before I was feeling the effects of this, everywhere.
On top of that, away from my own toilet seat left me constipated and bloated, sleeping on top bunk in a dorm, really didn’t do my back any favours, and as for the communal showers…. enough said!
Upon coming home, however, to my lovely comfortable bed, my own toilet seat and even better, a bath tub, I was reminded of how much more I appreciate my own creature comforts when I’ve been away from them.
I never realised that a bath tub filled with Epsom salts and some cheap lavender bubble bath could feel quite so wonderful!
Moreover, I see that when you’ve actually been out of your comfort zone, doing, striving and challenging yourself, the comfort and relaxation that follows, just goes to a whole new level of special.
