What will you do this Sunday?

Will it be a duvet day or a hike in the hills? Only you have the power to decide.

Luckily here in Northern Ireland we have the wonderful Mournes as our inspiration.

By getting outdoors into the wonderful Northern Ireland countryside we can appreciate all the beauty that surrounds us. Most Vets are stuck in a pokey little consulting room all day long without lifting our heads long enough to see a blink of sunlight. Speaking from experience I certainly know that this will have a detrimental effect on your mood.

We as a human race are designed to move and run and challenge our bodies. They are incredible and most people don’t realise their capabilities. I recently climbed Slieve Donard which is the highest mountain in Northern Ireland standing at 850m. I climbed with my husband and my two daughters who are aged 9 and 7 and another family who love their outdoor lifestyle  and are an inspiration to us. We all reached the top and had such a sense of achievement and my youngest daughter said to me that she could do anything now she had climbed a mountain. Unfortunately she thought the carpark was the other side of the Mourne wall at the summit. There was no iPads, no five star luxury, just the scenery and each other and a rather lacklustre picnic!

But what did we learn…. We can climb that mountain, we can achieve anything we set our minds too. So go on and choose your challenge. It’s invigorating and an excellent endorphin boost that will set you up for the rest of the working week.

I for one needed this once upon a time but couldn’t see the wood for the trees so here are a few helpful hints that are a must if you are feeling trapped and overwhelmed at the thought of attempting that mountain of emotions in-front of you. #PLACINGPEOPLEFIRST #VETS2VETSRECRUITMENT #OPENFORWORK
