Life as an expat is rich and wonderful, and living in France for the last thirteen years has broadened my horizons more than I even could have imagined.
I’ve learned how to be autonomous and very resourceful, and of course become adept at navigating a whole new language and surprisingly different culture.
But, since I adore my family in England, the price to pay is very regular travel.
Travel can be a tricky thing when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, even when it’s just a quick hop over the English Channel. I often find that my healthy daily rituals simply fall away when I’m away from home.
But since Ann and I are now the poster girls of the morning ritual, I was committed to making my rituals happen this time around. And it made all the difference – I felt more energised, and also more present with my family.
Sometimes you just need that daily anchor of a ritual to help keep you grounded, and not fall into old, bad habits. It’s a matter of prepping a few small things, getting organised when you hit the ground, and carving out some time in the morning to work through the steps of the ritual. Simple steps, big results!
I hope you enjoy those lovely sunny beach shots – and yes, this was filmed in England. Cornwall when the sun shines just might be the most delightful place on earth!
