Between filming and my business, I don’t get many opportunities to take holidays, and when I do, I’m generally jumping on a plane for a combined work-vacation with a pretty crazy itinerary. I love that my work takes me around the world and gives me the opportunity to visit exciting places, but it’s also nice to take a step back sometimes it can be liberating to have a holiday where anything can happen, rather than pre-planning everything down to the minute detail.
This summer was the first holiday I’ve taken for a long time where every day I woke up and asked myself: “what do I want to do today”? I can’t remember when I’ve had that luxury in the last 10 years!
Taking a step back and letting my vacation unfold organically gave me the chance I needed to centre myself and give me clarity. I’d love to try to find a week every six months where I mute my calendar alerts and just go with the flow. I feel like it would be so beneficial health wise.
