Your Traveling Home

In News and Updates by Meghan Burrows

What a weird title for a comeback blog, yet I didn’t even have to think about it. I just made the drive from Toronto, ON to Surrey, BC over the last 6 days and it gave me a lot of time to think.

I realized that although I may not have had a true home for the last five years (moved every 4 to 8 months for school and work) I could always count on my body to adapt and thrive in new environments. I started moving myself in the past 2 years, lots of boxes, trips and packing lessons.

All of this was possible because of my physically able body.

When I have gone on trips in the past three years, I haven’t skipped workouts due to the fact that 1 or 1.5 hours in my day is the only thing that has stayed consistent in a very changing period of my life.

Be at home with your body, treat it well and it will give you back so much more than just a heartbeat, a set of bones and a brain.

You can travel far from everything and everyone you know and still be at home in your own skin.

Yes, I personally prefer the gym but exercise can be done anywhere. I was finishing my bike cooldown last night and felt like I was on cloud 9. I thought to myself ” I have tried it all: food, alcohol, drugs, friends and everything that is supposed to make you come alive and feel amazing. After all of this, nothing compares to a great workout.

The chemical effects and mental clarity that come with a solid training session are absolutely my favourite feeling in the world.

I am going to continue to build my home, make little renovations and preserve some of the fine tuned parts.

I am now ok with being anywhere in the world, knowing that my house is always going to be taken care of and never, ever sold.
