What comes to mind when you reflect on the last 30 days?
I have experienced one of the best chapters of my life, this was the month I returned home but I felt extremely blessed the moment the plane wheels touched down. I sense of pride washed over me I had just completed 9 months of travelling alone armed with just my backpack and I have had the most memorable experience.
These past 30 days have been truly magically from going back to my second home in Malaysia and reconnecting with my friends out there, to reflecting and meeting wonderful people along the way, trying new techniques like Holotropic breathwork which highlights the beauty of connecting with your breathe.
What have you struggled with?
The concept of time, at times it feels like all I have done in the past 10 months is pressed the pause button.
Although I have experienced so much, returning home creates this weird feeling as if nothing has changed.
My environment is the same, the road works near my house seems like it hasn’t progressed at all over the past 9 months.
Whilst travelling I spoke to other people who said this feeling was inevitable for those who return from travelling.
What are you working on right now?
Right now I’m all about adjusting and getting over this jetlag, which has been a battle as I’m keen to hit the ground running.
Over the last few months I have been preparing myself for my return, every free moment I have been thinking about what I needed to do and get into place before starting work again.
My main battle is getting eco-friendly direct up and running, and then creating a continuous revenue income which is passive.
How do you feel physically and mentally?
There’s more focus on bodyweight workout and stretch, the thought of a gym doesn’t appeal to me and I felt it caused more harm than good. I want to physically test my body but ensure it maintains its mobility, I want to focus on exercises that contribute to longevity as opposed to damage to ligaments and muscles.
I have started fasting for 16 hours each day, which has seen me gain control over my inner monster which likes to overindulge. My reasoning behind the fasting is maintaining my energy levels, I’m a victim for feeling the slow do after eating a meal and fasting gets your body to run at it’s optimal level.

Anything else you feel is important.
- The Average Age of a Successful Startup Founder Is 45
I’ve improved a lot in my early 20’s back then I used to get disappointed because I hadn’t achieved my startup success story. Now I have the thought but then I remember it’s the journey that I should be embracing and the results will happen.
- Do I feel safe expressing my feelings and thoughts with this person?
A question people should ask themselves when sharing their feeling or thoughts with others, it’s important in any type of relationship that you feel safe. If it isn’t then maybe you should be expressing pieces of you.
