Wonderful wild swimming

So after a busy first day on Monday when I was delighted to meet some new clients (and receive their lovely feedback), I took some time out for myself on Tuesday to feed my own wellbeing! Paddle boarding from Abingdon to Clifton Hampden and a short swim in the river afterwards were wonderful ways to start the day, especially when the cloud and mist melted away to reveal beautiful blue sky! The water is definitely getting chillier now but a brief (8 minute!) float in the current and swim against it really sets me up with such a physical and mental glow and sense of joie de vivre!

We saw two kingfishers, numerous herons, red kites and swans along the way. Being in nature really helps me to stay calm, relax and be present – all skills that help me to be a better massage therapist!
