Last year April, I took Khushi to Paris for the very first time. As you already may have noticed, I JUST LOVE AND ADORE EVERYTHING PARIS & PARISIAN! We took the Euro Star from London to Paris. We had brought some lunch and entertainment to keep us occupied during the journey. The scenery was absolutely stunning!
THEY WALK EVERYWHERE
The French walk everywhere. They walk to work, to the markets, to run errands – and it’s part of their daily routine. They’re not doing anything excessive, so if they don’t do high-intensity exercise, it’s because they’re already active. Khushi and I did the very same thing – one day we actually walked over 30,000 steps – from where we were staying; Appart’City, Saint Cyr l’Ecole to Palace of Versailles. Yes, we were sightseeing, but I’m sure the average French person walks more than 10,000 steps a day.
THEY TREAT FOOD WITH RESPECT
THEY ENJOY LIFE
So…the bottom line is:
- NOW is the only time we have and know for sure, LIVE it! Don’t stress about the past nor the future – enjoy this moment. Be mindful; Indulging a slice of Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake? Take notice of the smell, taste, flavours, texture and how it makes you feel 🙂
- Eat everything you love (forget diets etc.), just eat in moderation. Take your food seriously and respect it by giving it the time and attention it deserves.
- Be active! If you’re not a ‘gym’ person, go for long walks! Thanks to my new ‘Fitness Regime‘ my aim is: 13000 steps a day (comes to approx 2 hour walk – a total of 10km) and 30-45min Cardio at the gym 4-5 times a week.
