#couchpotato day! At the start of this year I felt so exhausted that I did something I haven’t done in more than 10 years... I believe in alternative health, but I went to see a conventional Dr. Thankfully, my Dr was brilliant, he said “I’m going to run some tests, but I think I know what’s wrong with you, as 80% of the people who walk through my door have your lifestyle... they travel through time zones for work. Travelling through time zones is one of the worst things you can do for your body as it upsets all your circadian rhythms which affects sleep, hormones etc. and basically, with time, wipes you out. The only solution I have for you is to cut down on travelling.” My Dr was totally right, my tests all came back negative, and so for the last 4 months I’ve tried to stay at home in London and only travel short-haul. It worked, and I feel so much more energetic now!! But, the reality is, travelling through time zones is a necessary part of my job, so I’m now back doing it, BUT... I now look after myself with greater care when I do! So if after travelling all I want to do is spend an entire day resting on the sofa, I do! No guilt, just complete respect for the needs of my body. I hope you do the same whether you travel through time zones or not! There’s a time to work hard, and push yourself beyond the limits of what you think you’re capable of, and a time to relax, let go, and do nothing!
