Cet été, je suis parti sur l'île Spitzberg, dans l'archipel du Svalbard. C'était vraiment un voyage extraordinaire et je vous propose une petite rétrospective en photo, histoire de partager un peu l'émerveillement que j'ai pu sentir au quotidien, là-bas. Je commence par ma rencontre avec un renard polaire qui a décidé de se poser pour faire sa sieste alors que j'étais à 3m de lui, oklm (sûrement un de mes meilleirs souvenirs du séjour !) #svalbard#articfox#spitzbergen#wildanimals#sunrise#bestofnorway#midnightsun#fox#powernap#renard
🌟REALITY🌟Its so important to me that I portray my real life on my Instagram, as I know how much pressure it makes me feel when I see feeds filled with impossible perfection - like what I do and how I do it are never good enough. I rarely use filters, show myself with no makeup on and even sometimes in workout gear (thats hard!). So today I'm taking this further and sharing with you all the reality of living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome... I want other people who are facing challenges to know that they are not alone and that nobody is positive & perky all the time!
Today is a day where showering, making a couple of work calls and sending a few emails has left me exhausted. I walked to the corner shop and felt like I had run a 10km hill race. This acute fatigue can last a few hours, a few days or a few weeks - I can't control it, but what I can control is NEVER GIVING UP 🙂🌟💖
Who is in favour of a power nap? 🙋🏼♀️
Sleep is the most underrated wellness tool... 😴✌🏻
Enough sleep is as important for good health as nutrition and exercise.
With forward thinking companies who really care about the welfare and productivity of their staff introducing sleep rooms and wellness programs it’s clear that times are changing.
Sleep is not for the weak, it’s not lazy. It’s ESSENTIAL to health.
It actually helps our bodies to heal, grow stronger and be more productive.
A 30 minute snooze this afternoon and I woke up and felt soooo much better... Do you schedule regular naps or make your night time pre-bed wind down a priority? #sleepisamazing#TheFitHub
Imagine you are driving home after running some quick errands with your toddler – nothing out of the ordinary, just a stop to drop off some things at Goodwill and pick up some groceries. Sure, he may have had a few moments in the store but nothing you couldn’t manage. Nothing to indicate what is ahead.
For, even though it is before noon and the drive home no more than fifteen minutes, what do you see reflecting back at you in that tiny mirror strapped to the headrest? Two little tiny eyes that have somehow managed to grow too heavy and a little one who has drifted off to sleep.
The car seat power nap. Ruiner of days, nights, and moods of anyone in its path. It defies all logic. How does this piddly, inconsequential mini siesta somehow manage to make such waves that the consequences are felt into the following evening?
In case you didn’t already guess, I am in the throws of those consequences, tapping away on my laptop keyboard after I foolishly missed my son drifting off to sleep in the car, followed by foolishly not hitting him with a tranquilizer dart come his normal afternoon nap time, followed by foolishly thinking I could put him to bed an hour earlier after he had acted like a sleep-deprived lunatic. Safe to say I am a fool.
His afternoon naps benefit all involved. I am fortunate enough that he still (generally) goes down for a couple hours in the afternoon, allowing him to (generally) be a pleasant little tot until bedtime and allowing me to clean the house, shower, or watch something that doesn’t look like a fever dream while tripping on acid (I’m lookin’ at you Mother Goose Club). Sometimes if the stars align and I can get the baby to sleep, too, I’ll take a little nap myself.
