What I Did Alone In My Hotel Room This Morning-And You Can Do It Too!

I have learnt a new idea about what to do by myself every morning when no-one is watching. It’s perhaps the most exhilarating 10 minutes you can spend with yourself. I have just done it, and before leaving my hotel room, am going to share this gem with you… if you dare!

I’m in Phuket and a bit disappointed. I have visited here four times previously, twice in the late 80s, twice in the early 90s (different girlfriend each time- those were the days!). I haven’t been back for almost 20 years. Until this business trip brought me here for two days. Phuket has changed. For me, for the worse. Over-developed, dirty, crowded. For others no doubt, for the better. And it is still a beautiful place.

But I cheered up when I focused my thoughts on how fortunate I am to have been here many times before, filled with laughter, sunshine and fun. I took those memories with me to the very quiet 10 minutes I spent with myself just after I woke up. This is what I did, and why I encourage you to give it a go too.
