Life is either a great adventure or nothing! - Helen Keller
August is a tough time...simply, it's the last month of Winter here in Oz and most of us have had just about enough of frosty winds, layer upon layers of clothing and wicked killer ice cream headaches in the surf (or the deftness that comes with wearing a warm hood instead!).
BUT, there is one good thing about this time of year. Holidays are that much closer and it's the best time to get amped about GETTING AWAY! I'm here to encourage you to opt for the ADVENTUROUS holiday rather than the "I'm a lazy blob on the beach" holiday ;)
WHY? Because its a universal truth that the more you sit down the less you want to get up = the less you get up the stiffer, wobblier, weaker you get = you feel like shit! That's not to say the odd afternoon nap and massage shouldn't be a vital part of your next escape, but why not balance it out?
My recommendations for your next trip away
Go Kayaking - awesome for sight seeing round beautiful island locations across the water
Walking/Hiking - taking you to new heights and the only thing you need is walking shoes!
Cultural Training Techniques - whether Tai Chi, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu. This is a great way to emerse yourself in local culture and perhaps discover a new fitness love
Snorkelling - Turtles, Fish, Coral sea beds, warm crystal clear water. Need I say more!
Bike Riding - Go for a trundle around the local streets, its cheap and you cam go as far as your legs will take you
Active Stretch/Yoga/Pilates - these days there is a mat placed out overlooking a beautiful setting, just waiting for you stretch out and strengthen while being inspired by your surroundings
Surfing/SUP Boarding - These water sport activities are great for full body strength and you get to flap about in the water for as long as you like!
So where to start? Well, you're just in luck! Surf Style Training is heading to THAILAND for the first overseas active adventure escape with Restart Health Escapes! I'm chomping at the bit and cannot wait for the 31st of October 2015!
