This post is part of my “Guidelines” series where I analyse memorable book quotes and examine how to apply them in real life.
“The old saying, “You Snooze, You Lose” may have a deeper meaning than any of us realized. When you delay waking up until you have to—meaning you wait until the last possible moment to get out of bed and start your day—consider that what you’re actually doing is resisting your life. Every time you hit the snooze button, you’re in a state of resistance to your day, to your life, and to waking up and creating the life you say you want.” – Hal Elrod, The Miracle Morning (book summary)
There are loads of articles online about different types of productivity routines you can follow. Things you should and shouldn’t do. How to work and when to do what.

I’m writing this post from Qantas flight 143 from Sydney to Auckland. After 17 flights, 26 beds, 6 countries and 15 cities, this is the final leg of our journey. After half a year of travel, it’s a weird feeling to be going home and heading back to reality.

Paul and I believe in “training for life”; being able to enjoy experiences, run up and down beaches, cycle through new cities and climb mountains to catch the sunrise without burning out.
When it comes to keeping fit on the go, what you do will largely depend on how much you want to do, whether you are travelling long term, for a quick holiday or on business. Regardless of where you are and the length of your stay, chances are you have a few options to help keep fit.
Hayley and I had plans to go on a safari this weekend. But due to the flooding n Sri Lanka we couldn't make it. The area of Galle, where we were last weekend, was one of the worse hit areas and we're very thankful to be safe and dry in Colombo.
