After another extended period of busy, I took some time to get out and sleep in my tent for a couple of nights. I was quickly reminded how easy it is to decompress when the trappings of daily life with chores and stores at every corner are removed. Spending just 2 nights out revealed how the base needs of water, food and shelter can occupy the mind in a healthy way. What would normally be perceived as a hassle of needing to sort out the things we take for granted every day became a true pleasure as it replaced the stress of all the other stuff modern conveniences transformed in to pressing issues.
Fresh air, perspective on life’s true priorities and time to just sit and think need to be given much more attention.
