There’s no fun in playing it safe

You may think that you don't have any time to spare to do something new and exciting, but if you could just challenge yourself, do something out of the ordinary and relive those childhood emotions of fear and excitement then you'll really feel the benefits. Let's go sailing!

Body Image

As children, you grow up experiencing so many firsts - learning to ride a bike, starting a new school, changing teachers, joining a club, going on your first school trip. All of these, can, for some, be daunting and unsettling times. As parents, we spend much of our time encouraging our children to try new things and embrace change. Aside from wanting our them to experience as much as feasibly possible, we do it because we know that once they have overcome their initial fear, the sense of achievement and satisfaction they will feel far outweighs any initial anxiety.

Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day today

So, why as adults do we often procrastinate about trying new experiences and facing new challenges? Time and fear are the biggest culprits. As adults and parents, we are so busy with work, home and looking after our children that time for you often falls to the bottom of the pile. In fact, we barely have time for doing what we need to do let alone doing anything new and exciting.

It's all about the journey

The fear of failure is also a real barrier. We set our expectations so high that we forget that the real benefit of a challenge is the fun we have and the friends we make along the way. There is nothing wrong with revisiting those feelings we had as kids – the fear, the uncertainty and the unknown. It’s only when we experience these that we can really appreciate our achievements no matter how big or small.

Conquering the mountains, conquering fears

Late to the skiing scene - I was nearly 40 when I went on my first ski holiday. Surrounded by seasoned pros, to say I felt way out of my depth was an understatement. It was a holiday like no other, such a turmoil of emotions. The fear literally EVERY time I took to a ski lift (this in itself is an art to be mastered) was paramount and the exhilaration on coming down the mountain and facing these incredible nerves head on was felt in equal measures.

 

Let's go sailing - A bit of YOU time

With summer upon us, we want you to try something new! Our evening sailing courses at Poole Park Lake is the perfect after-work activity. Enjoy the evening sunshine, learn a new skill and make the most of the fact that we are lucy enough to live in a place where water activities are accessible.

Sailing can be many things - challenging, exhilarating, frustrating but most of all, great fun! Being out on the water, as well as coming with its endless health benefits, can really clear the mind and cleanse the soul. In a nutshell, it can make you feel awesome! If you don’t try something then you really will never know what you are capable of and how much fun it can be. So step out of your comfort zone and allow yourself the luxury of time - you’ll soon realise that it is time well spent. 

Poole Park Adult Evening sailing sessions start 24th July 2019
